Weekend actual, real, no kidding accomplishments

I finally had time to sew this weekend and am going to have to change my ‘About Me‘ to indicate the second time that I sewed a garment aside from my wedding dress.   I made these PJs for my niece’s upcoming 11th birthday early next month.  I love the Parisville by Tula Pink and bought it in the blue (mist) colorway so I can make some for me too.  I am going to make up a overnight bag to put them in (good intentions anyhow) as this girl is all about her slumber parties!

I also completely scored at garage sales this weekend.  Mostly for the store, but also a lovely little find: some vintage books.  I just can’t resist those lovely pliable leather bindings.

And…I couldn’t tell you about the garage sale find of the century before Christmas, but not three weeks before I was struggling with what to give my husband.  Then, I came across this little beauty:

It’s a Sony N50 and I just cannot say what I paid for it but…not much, I’ll tell  you that.  I was secretly hoping to steal it to use for my own blog photos so I can get some better quality photos on here.  Funnily enough, I can’t seem to get the darn thing out of his hands!

And, I cooked.  And made some Valentine’s pinwheels while the kids made some Valentine’s Day cards for friends and family.  We finally got the bookcase up and while I was trying to purge the cookbook stash to fit on the shelf (didn’t quite work, but most of them are there), I came across this recipe for amazing mushroom and roquefort stuffed homemade crepes with a béchamel sauce for tonight…yumm.  It’s from Nigel Slater’s Real Food.  Don’t you love snooping at other people’s bookshelves….or is that just me?

Hope you all had a great weekend too!

  1. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
