Vintage Basket

I've wanted this vintage basket since I helped my sister move a couple years ago. I found out it was actually our great aunt's and she had gotten it when we helped her move. Yesterday she gave it to me full or watercolor supplies she no longer needed. I am so, so happy about this basket. Seriously. Sister love for sure.

Woven Rug (Work) Day 3!

...finished!!

This rug took me three working days to complete. Super easy. Really fast. Thumbs up. The ends curled up a bit, so next time I'll adjust my tension when I get to the final few colors. I think this could also be caused by the woven trim, so I'll have to try another one to find out.  Regardess, I love the way this little accent rug turned out. I want to start another one, but am just about an hour away from finishing the woven design on my pillow before I can take it off the loom, so no rug work until that's completed. Sigh.

Summer Style

Here in the midwest, I feel confident speaking for EVERYONE when I say that around mid-January, all we can dream of is summer. Hot sun, cold drinks, and enjoying the outdoors. It's everything. Seriously.

However, I'm a layering kind of lady and once the heat sets in I kind of forget how to dress. The last week has been quickly heating up and demanding summer vibes. I say, put on some sunscreen, lay in a hammock, and enjoy the weather! That's what I'd be doing if I had a hammock. Here's a look at my outfits from the past few days. 

Shorts: Target. Shirt: vintage nightgown. Flannel: thrift shop in Nashville.
