Manhattan Valentine Dress

manhattan valentine dress

My poor boys. I used to make them Valentine's Day shirts but lets me honest, dresses are more fun :) And what is Valentines day without a new dress right? I have had the Manhattan Blouse by See Kate Sew on my to-sew list for months. Something else I have wanted for months? That Fruit Dot Print!! ( The Fabric is Cotton & Steel Fruit Dots in Peaches Orchid and you can find it HERE) I decided this print would make the most perfect Manhattan Top/Dress! I just extended the skirt part of the pattern by about 3-3.5" in length to make it a dress, super easy. I have been hoarding that Anna ...

Master Bedroom Update

master bedroom

A few weeks ago I went through my house and took some current pictures of all of our rooms. We have been here for 2.5 years now in this house so things have changed a little in some rooms and a lot in others :) I also wanted some pictures to update the HOME TOUR tab up there for my blog, because I love stalking home tours on other blogs! I really didn't clean up and I especially didn't "style" these pictures like I should have but I have decided if I wait for it to be the perfect day then it will never happen, right? Last time that I posted about my Master Bedroom it was to show off my DIY ...

Vintage Sheet Quilt

vintage sheet quilt

 The first moment I saw a vintage sheet quilt years ago, I knew I had to make one! The pastel colors mixed with the jewel tones... I can't even handle it. So a few years ago, I started collecting vintage sheets from sales that I saw on Instagram, Etsy and eBay. I bought some full sheets for the back and binding by mostly just fat quarter cuts of sheets that people had split up. Once I felt like I had enough, I decided on just doing 4" squares so I could still see as much of the design as possible. I cut the squares and finished the top back in 2014... here we are in 2016, slowest quilt ever ...

Dining Room Update

dining room

When we remdeled our kitchen we did a little rearranging so I thought I would share some house updates, specifically a Dining Room Update. We replaced all of our laminate and carpet flooring with this amazing tile that looks like wood and we love it! My favorite thing about it is the clean-ability. Here is a before picture from when we first moved in. Carpet under a table with toddlers is just never really a good idea haha. We moved our other dining room table into the breakfast room so we replaced it with this nice big 10 person table! I love having a huge table so we can host even more ...
