sprucing up

We're slowly working on sprucing up our bedroom which is just really drab right now. The closet has no doors (and thus exposing my almost embarrassing huge collection of clothes), we only have ugly plastic blinds on the windows and no art on the walls. So I started with the easy part this past weekend, I made curtains! It was really nice to work on my sewing machine again. I've forgotten how much I love making things. Last weekend's project has definitely put me back in the sewing mood again, I even made a tote after I finished the curtains just because I was having so much fun. I hope I can keep this up!

The curtains are up in the sewing room right now, we'll see how long it take for us to move them over to the bedroom.

I made the tote for my flickr friend, hanssolo, to belatedly thank her for sending me her wonderful art .

a sneak peak at my finds

Here's a sneak peak at some of my vintage finds. Some if not all of these will eventually make their way into my shop. My favorite out of the four pictured here are the shoes. They were such a great find. I wish that they're my size so that I can keep them for myself! Please click on the picture to get a bigger view.

to market, to market

Nope we didn't go there to buy a fat pig, but we saw some lovely carrots, gorgeous flowers, yummy pastries and cool street art. This past weekend's weather was spectacular, we ended up going to Alemany twice. On Saturday for the weekly farmer's market, and on Sunday for the weekly flea market.

So lately, I've been posting more inspirations than actual things I've made. I think I am in that weird mental space right now, where I don't really know what to make. I'm not really too motivated to sit down for a few hours at a time and make something. So I guess I am just slacking for now and waiting for something to click in my brain. I want to continue posting on this space though, just because this keeps me grounded. All I know right now is that I want to pursue my vintage aspirations. The section of "set aside vintage clothes" in my closet is very slowly growing. I also bought a dress form and have been taking some pictures of my finds, I will post them soon.

For now I am enjoying the weather and some quality time spent with the hubby and Momo.
