If I had been just a few minutes later in grabbing my camera the other night, I would have missed these lovely and fleeting colors in the sky! Because it was a bit hazy, the lake took on a subtle and faded look that kept changing in color. It reminded me how quickly time seems to be passing lately, (can you believe it's September?!), and how important it is to take a minute to just appreciate the moment!

I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday my friends!

Sunday Smiles

Untitled

Like my new apron?! I love it, and it makes me smile every time I put it on! My sister made it for me with some beautiful Essex linen from Robert Kaufman (here) after I showed her THIS apron for inspiration from Hand-Eye Supply. I've worn it while working on the lathe, repotting plants, painting and cooking (if you can call making a bean salad "cooking").

Weaving and Macrame

Untitled

With all of the beautiful hanging textile art I'd been seeing around blogland, I was itching for an excuse to try some out! So when my friend's birthday came along, and knowing she was loving the weaving trend too, well, I jumped at the chance.

Happy Tuesday my dear friends! These are a few shots I got with my phone from the window. (Not bad iphone, not bad!) These hummers have been going through food like crazy!

I hope you have a great week!

Happy Sunday friends! Are you guys list makers? When I go shopping I have to have a list with me, otherwise I'm bound to forget at least one thing I wanted to get. I also like making to-do lists, as they help make me feel more organized (even if the to-do lists are written all hibbly-bibbly in random places), and what really makes me smile is being able to cross off items from the to-do lists, making me feel super productive. The crossing off part is so satisfying. So in the spirit of list-making, here's a little list of some other things that are making me smile lately (in no particular order):

Swan Doily

Untitled

This is the last navy and silver doily I have to share with you. It's called the Swan Doily, for reasons unknown to me. Although, I'm sure the job of naming doilies is not easy! I have a hard enough time naming my own few little patterns.

"A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond the horizons." -Richard Bach

Have a lovely Tuesday my dear friends!
