I finally had an opportunity to take another sewing class! If you have been following my blog, you know I decorated a sewing space in my daughter’s room and took my first class last year. You can checkout my sewing room here. Unfortunately, I have not touched my sewing machine in months! So when my sister mentioned that she was taking a class called Sip and Sew with Stitched By Shay… I jumped at the opportunity!
The class was so fun and I am very proud of my beautiful African skirt! This was not an easy project but, we were all beginners so we struggled together, lol ! The snacks and mimosas made it a little easier and fun!
Shay was so patient and easy to work with. My sister and I had so much fun! Checkout this little video of the class and if you are interested in more information about her classes and business checkout her Facebook page here.
When I went to the Loft website yesterday it said 97 days of summer! It was nice to see that reminder because if you go into the stores, all you see are Back to School signs and fall items already! I am not ready to let go of summer or my vacation yet, so it was great to find this flowery off the shoulder dress and this fabulous bamboo bag. This bamboo bag is perfect to carry all summer long and a great reminder that summer is still in full bloom! Continue reading →
I love flowers! I think it started when I got to be the flower girl in my uncle’s wedding when I was about 6 years old. My family says that I barely wanted to drop the rose petals from my basket. I guess I did not want to let them go!Continue reading →
So our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered, I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook!Continue reading →

Let’s Flamingle! This was the theme for my flamingo themed pool party that I hosted to raise money for a great charity, promote my wine tasting business, and just have fun! Take a look at my video to see how to throw a fabulous flamingo pool party!
Color and Denim-Work it Wednesday!
I love this denim strapless dress and I crossed my fingers that I would be able to squeeze into it this summer, lol! I brought it on clearance back in January at White House Black Market with visions of wearing it on a warm summer night or to brunch with the girls. With the help of a good strapless bra and Spanx I am in…whoo hoo! Continue reading →
This week I pulled out my super bright Kate Spade handbag and my orange and white stripe top for a casual spring look! I think stripes and brights work well together when you are ready for some fun in the sun! The weather is so nice that it makes me want to head outdoors and just enjoy the cool breeze.Continue reading →
I love finding a great pair of shoes! When I am shopping for shoes, I look for the three C’s: they have to be cute, comfortable, and cost effective. Luckily, these black strappy heels with terrific tassels fit the bill! I found them at Madewell a few months ago on sale for $40.00. They were on clearance in late January which is a great time to shop! Continue reading →
