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!
