hello blog world

Sorry I was on a mini happened, I got stressed out and over emotional and then I survived!  Looking forward to this Friday night of cleaning and laundry to start off my weekend fresh.  Also can't wait to open up some inspiration magazines.

Enjoy your evening!  I'm taking time to relax and breathe.

wounded wing

I had shoulder surgery on Friday morning so I am sporting a lovely sling type thing for three weeks which means limited creating, BUT I did find a box of magazines from Stampington and Company in my mailbox today so I cannot wait to delve into inspiring photos and articles after this hectic week of classes. (Excuse my large run on sentence)

Happy Tuesday!

Weekend DIY: doily dream catcher

I made this as my weekend DIY.  It was inspired by free people (of course).  Headed to Michaels to purchase the twig wreath then stitched a doily in the center.  I added gold wire and beads as well as ripped fabric strands to hang off the bottom.  I am currently doily obsessed.
Happy Wednesday!

dresses as decor

I have been changing out some of my favorite dresses as quick room updates.  Might as well show off my lovelies since I compulsively purchase dresses all the time!

weekend update

The boy was in town this weekend.  Saturday I went to the farmer's market and purchased delicious mini cantaloupes called lil' loupes.  I also attended the art fair and purchased the two puppy prints above from the artists, Angela Bond.  I could not resist their adorable faces and immediately missed my pups back home.
Saturday night we went to the football game and ate heavenly pizza.  Sunday was rainy and depressing and lacking any motivation whatsoever, but the boyfriend took me to the antique mall and bought me a blue Ball jar as well as some doilies so it wasn't a complete bust.  We also baked some sinful buffalo chicken dip. 
Today we had breakfast out and now I am spending the rest of the afternoon actually studying.  Guess that's part of being in college.
Happy Labor Day!

dear september

Another month gone.  A month of self discovery, newness and introspection.  I am me.  I will be the person I want to be and I will not let others change that.  I have found what makes me happy, makes me inspired and makes me better.  I am wandering down a new all my own.  A path where I do not have to do things just to fit in and feel included, but a path that I can stop at my own will and feel and be nothing but genuine.
September is about letter writing, farmer's market going, coffee drinking, studying, creating and believing that despite set backs I will be changed for the better.  September is for dress wearing, treasure hunting and kindness.  This path has been created for a reason and I will wander and follow it as I please.  I finally feel like I am really me.  I always lived separate lives and now they have merged into one.  Thank you August and cheers to September.
