Fishin on sunny days.

I love to go fishin' on bright sunny days. With all the little fishies just a swimming in the bay. With my hands in my pockets and my pockets in my pants- all the little fishies do the fishy fishy dance.

We are visiting my parents in Hermiston this weekend. My grandparents are up from California. Jus and I went fishing this morning, made apple/pear sauce and then went kayaking! I love being at home.

Happy weekend! I have a working interview next week at a peds clinic! Excited for the future. Bought loads of beautiful fabric Friday and am very inspired.
Much love!

Hey hey!
Excited to have an occasion to wear this new creation to.

Real girls wear pink.

Much love,

Pink headed

My pink highlights are fading but I still love them and will definitely refresh them soon!

This is my housewife costume.


Hello hello....
This unemployed jag has me feeling so 50's housewife. Sent hubby off to work with breakfast and a packed lunch. I then, dutifully went to my cleaning and canning. The free time has given me time to explore more of my passion for fashion and my current love of open backs and ever-present love of wool.
Creative love to you.

Much Love,

Somedays I understand so well how Josie feels here.

Somedays- I miss my childhood! Somedays- I just want to go back to bed- to sleep, to stop thinking, to get away. Somedays are hard for a reason and others for no reason at all. Oh phooey! I guess it's all part of growing up.
Still with much love,

Today I found out I passed my clinical boards- my last big test. Huge relief.
These are a few of the corsets I've made recently.

Pondering growing up and moving away... Sad and happy. Wish I knew to where.
Much love and a touch of melancholy,

Anna karenina

This photo's caption claims it is Anna Karenina from Tolstoy's novel I never finished... I know better.

Feeding into Feedback

This is my etsy feedback. Of 30 people who left feedback on their skirts- 28 loved them, 1 felt neutrally, and 1 felt negatively. The one negative Nancy temporarily ruined etsy for me and made me seriously question my design endeavors...
Why do we let other people's opinions define us? There is so much unhappiness in the world.
Let us endeavor to not be a part of the negative infiltrate.
Let us smile, smile, smile and love, love, love.
Life can be stressful. Make a decision to be kind in spite of the stress. Putting others first will take your mind off of the things you don't really need to be worried about anyway.

Happy week to you!

Much much love,

The weekends projects

Oh Sunday! Please don't go! Stay just a little longer...:(

This is Justin's new V-neck. Inspired by a vintage pattern.

And this is me covered in duct tape. The last one I made is beautiful but much larger than me. I'm going to cover it in fabric.

Much love and wishes for the weekend to come. Both sets of parents are coming!!

Love always,

Food for thought

Today, the art in my life is all food- lemon buttermilk cake, chocolate rum ganache (for the frosting), and lemon curd for the filling... and just because I had extra egg whites I made my favorite french treat- merengues and spiced them up with lavendar and chocolate.... mmmmm.

Viva las Vegas

Meet my mom and dad- Richard and Claudia. They took Justin and I to Vegas this last weekend.

Best food of the weekend-

Tapas style dinners-
Amazing! The chicken croquettes are my new obsession. I must learn to make them.
Hope you are having a beautiful week.

Lover boy

Fashion exhibit at the LACMA

A couple weekends ago we went to the LA County Museum of Art- the LACMA. We saw an amazing Fashion exhibit with actual period pieces from the 17 and 18 hundreds- amazing!!

After seeing this exhibit I bought several very complicated historical corset patterns... We'll see how they turn out. :)
Happy weekend friends! We're in Palm Springs then out to Vegas for a show and fun.

Khaki corset

Justin wanted to goodwill an old pair of khakis. Instead I recycled them-

Notice the included frayed hem. There was plenty of fabric but I liked the character it adds.
Happy creating. Happy living.


P.S. I have a 25$ gift card (that i only paid 10$ for!) for Lark bakery in Silverlake. Who wants to join?!?

New stripes

After doing 1 1/2 root canals this morning i Had the afternoon off to work on some new bunny and pear.

I love all the vintage leather buttons my darling gramma Claudia gave me! Hope everyone is having a beautiful week thus far.
Much love,
