hello sweet friends.

it's the middle of the week and i hope it is treating you just fine.
more than anything, i thought i would give you a break from your day ... a quick little tour around the world, documented with a needle and thread.

teresa lim, a textile designer and illustrator has managed to capture scenic landscapes with her embroidery hoop. much like a camera, her embroidered landscapes allow her to document a moment in time which will never be forgotten. even more, these little textile creations are a reminder for us to just enjoy the moment and allow ourselves to be completely consumed by it.

it's another wednesday.
find a moment in your day where you can just be ... no phone, no email.
just enjoy the moment.

peace to your heart.


vintage valentine's day cards//a stylish little lady
dear people of the blog.

it's friday the 13th.  it's all good.  nothing bad going on around here.  and tomorrow is valentine's day. do you celebrate with your person? my take is this ... i think it's great and all, but i like to spread my lovin' throughout the entire year, not just one day.  but, i do love a good vintage valentine's day card as they take me back to the days of going to pick out a box for classmates.  or when i was really in the spirit, i would break out the construction paper to make my own. celebrating the 14th is good, but the 15th is even better, because let's face it, that's when all the candy goes on sale and you can stock up! yes, i said that.  you are welcome, because i know you are thinking it too.

enjoy your weekend of love.
send yourself into a chocolate bliss.
make a card or two.
and be sure to take some time to love on those who love you best!

and before i send you off into the weekend ...
this giveaway will be ending soon.
easy valentine's day wreath and cards to make.
no time for that?  there's a collection of vintage cards available as a download here.
the postcard shown can be found here along with other love themed cards.  a cute kangaroo card here and a poodle one  here .. just in case you want to get a jump start on next year! 

peace to your heart.


sonadora driftwood hanging//a stylish little lady
hello friday and hello friends.

i'm glad this week is over and i'm looking forward to the weekend ahead and i hope you have something fun and/or relaxing planned.  we will be hanging out with friends on saturday which more than likely will turn into a garage party (with records of course).

so to send us off into the weekend i thought i would share another etsy fave and an item that has found a place in our home.  this handmade driftwood piece is by sonadora.  it has quickly become one of my favorites because if it's simplicity and organic nature.  so if you are a fan of textile and fiber wall art, be sure to check out lisa's spot as she has a handmade collection that would compliment any space.

this concludes friday's post.
be sure to take a little time to love on those who love you best and i'll see you back here next week.

peace to your heart.

ps//if you haven't entered the giveaway, you can check it out here.  and another etsy favorite found here.

well hello weekend and a big hello to you.

how was your week?  any plans for the weekend?
the hubby and i will be hanging out with friends.  tonight, we will be going to see a good friend dj and on sunday we will partake in superbowl festivities.  needless to say, i'm sure there will be massive amounts of wings, chips, and whatever else you tell yourself you are not going to eat but wind up eating it anyways. so pregame, i might have a few of these. yep, pickled green beans.  they are a little weird (and i think i like carrots  and cucumbers best), but they are edible nonetheless.

i used the same basic recipe as the refrigerator pickles ... just a few substitutions.
*instead of 3 cups of vinegar i used 2 and added 2 cups of water
*i omitted the mustard and celery seed along with the dried dill and just used  1 1/2 tablespoons (with a little more added to each jar after i poured in the brine) of pickling spice
*i replaced the onion with 3 tablespoons thinly sliced garlic.

happy pickling!
and a happy weekend too.

ps//my friend annie is on the blog with a giveaway going on here and some valentine's day inspiration here.
