Things I'm Loving Right Now...

There are oh so many things that I'm loving right now. Today I'm sharing just a few: -New art work in many little corners of my home, found during my amazing trip to France. -Flowers from my garden in this antique box found at a local garage sale: -Berry picking with my friends and kiddos And some more pretty flowers, just because:

For My Little Explorer

I recently got the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book and immediately knew what I was going to make first. Wyatt is forever going on safari, hiking, hunting, exploring or something of the like so the Explorer vest was a perfect project for my little guy. I seem to have gotten carried away with all the adorable stuff to make for little girls and he was due for something mama-made. It took me two days (days are counted by nap-time, since that is the only time I can sew) to make it: one to cut out the pattern and pieces and one to sew. We still need to go find some buttons to make it look just right but my boy likes his new vest and I'm a happy mama.
