The Dyson Animal vac. I got's to have one. This Dyson is special for people with pets. And boy do I have pets.The LeSport Sac mini shoulder bag. It's cute, functional and totally indestructible.
This garment is from the pattern making web site I belong to. It's called Naomi. Therefore, I must have it. I kinda like the fabric they made this out of as well. It's a little busy for my taste BUT it's brown and navy. Can't resist.
Cream colored cocktail ring from J Crew. It's simple enough to wear everyday but fun enough for a night out.

This may be my very favorite book of all time. Yes, it gives Harry Potter a run for his money. It's so inspiring and full of tips on simplifying your life and style. I often feel like I have to much going on (style and life wise) and long for simplicity. This book always brings me back to my heart.
It's funny to me (and I'm not sure when I'm going to get used to this fact about myself) that all these books are "domestic". Cooking, cleaning and style. I long to be the modern day June Clever and have no problem admitting it. Wish I was as good at keeping house as doing financial expense reports. Sigh...

Rainy here today again. At least it's not snow. Got my spring handbag over the weekend. Got a heck of a deal on it too. Didn't even realize it till I looked it up online.
Heading out on Friday night for my Mom's house. Can't wait to get there. It's always so calm and relaxing there. Even when we end up going someplace it's still just nice. I can't believe it's about to be Easter already. Seems like this year is flying by.

Sorry about the flash on the second one. Anyways, I love these rooms. They are void of pretty much all color but make me want to relax and watch a movie. I love the tones of brown with the green plants mixed in. Natural, calm, cozy. I find it interesting that in my life I'm drawn to very muted colors. Grey is my favorite color people. Grey. I love navy and the every exciting mocha. I do like a good burgundy here and there too. Sigh...I'm boring.
In more fun news, I totally hate myself for loving these...I can't see myself buying them because 1. my husband would kill me if I bought one more pair of shoes right now 2. they go against all I stand for but still remain cute at the same time. I'm puzzled by this. I'm also puzzled by why it can't just be spring already!!! We have been really lucky and have three days over 50 this week though. That's like gold falling from heaven around here.

Found some patterns similar to these things, so I'm itching to get into my sewing room. It's full of misc junk right now though. We've been going through it little by little getting rid of things we don't need. I realized the other day we still don't have enough storage space in our house. I need another book shelf and some sort of big storage trunk for blanket and such. I also want a new comfy chair for reading books and hand sewing stuff in the living room. They two we currently have are trashed. I think I've finally figured out the layout I want for the front area but now I'll have to make it seem cozy. I'm not good at that for some reason. I am excited to hopefully get some plants this spring though. I've managed to keep my mother in laws tongue (which just might be my favorite house plant ever) alive for over a year now. I love that I can forget to water it for ages and it still looks great. Now if only the laundry would take care of itself like that...

I love them. They will go with everything too. I can wait for sleeveless dresses and sandals. Of course it's only 26 out here today. Yuck. Got two dress patterns yesterday from a sewing site I joined. These three gals come up with cool patterns and put them online for you to download.
Both are going to be super easy and I can just think of endless fabrics that I would love these in. I plan to make a battery of these for summer.
OH! Also, I've been talking about getting into photography more. I've been doing some research on cameras and what I need for my skill level and what I want to do. I've decided on a camera and I'm super excited!!! The Nikon D40. It's suppose to be super easy to use, light weight, and takes amazing photos. Even for a beginner like me. It's not cheap of course and I'll have to save up to get it but MAN am I excited. Hopefully I can have it by summer and take a ton of photos of everything.
Not much else going on lately. This weekend we're going to a friends birthday party and then if it's warmish, cleaning up our backyard. It's pretty ghetto back there. Also, I want to change the layout of the furniture at our house and do some pre-spring cleaning. We'll see.
