I LOVE Dress Up!!!

I know this is a little belated but did anyone else watch the Grammy's this year?  I'll be honest, I tuned in for the red carpet part because I wanted to see what everyone was wearing and then I left the room to take care of other business.  But I was somewhat disappointed by what I saw this year.  There were a lot of dresses that had lots of sparkle but little class.  Now, I'm not at all the fashion police but being a fashion designer was always one of my little girl fantasies and I like to think that I have cultivated a little bit of awareness when it comes to these things...with a slightly more classic taste.  =)

So to make sure that I knew I wasn't going crazy with my fashion sense, I turned to my trusty Etsy.  Someone out there is hand making something that will blow those red carpet fashions out of the water.  And here's my top three picks.  What do you think of them?

There were a lot of ladies rocking shorter dresses at the Grammy's this year (like J. Lo's pick here) but I thought a lot of them were just ridiculously short.  This Etsy find was a little more moderate and in my taste.  =)

Usually, I'm not the biggest fan of deep V cuts in the front of gowns but since at least one person insists on doing it at every award show and I really like this dress, I had to include it.  =)

This is probably my favorite pick.  I am loving romantic, whimsy, ruffly dresses.  And this Etsian custom colors each gown she makes so if you wanted a different color, you completely have that choice!

An Announcement

So I thought it was about time that my blogosphere friends heard my news.

I'm pregnant!

Now I haven't known for too long myself but I figured it out pretty quickly when I felt sick one day and the feeling didn't leave for the next four weeks.  =)  So right now, it is pretty much just a survival game.  But I am slowly easing into this funky feeling that isn't leaving and starting to enjoy the prospect of being a mother.  

So in addition to all of the things that you usually hear from me with my sprinkling of fashion, food, craftiness (my feeble attempts at it), and other odds and ends, you may also be afflicted with some pictures and ramblings of a mother-to-be.  =)

I hope you all have a wonderful President's Day whether you are working or not!

I have my own house but...

As I mentioned in my last post, the hubby and I have moved into our own little home just a couple of weeks ago.  And I have to own up to two things here.  One: this is the first year in a long time that I have not made up my New Year's resolutions.  And the sad reason why is that I was too busy at home spending time with dear family and friends.  =) Secondly, due to said lack of "resolution", I have been procrastinating a great deal on my unpacking and settling in.  My excuse is that we still haven't gotten all of our furniture (including some big pieces like the piano that is being moved in on Saturday) so it would seem somewhat pointless to put a ton of energy into the house just to have to rearrange everything.

But the lack of order in my living room and kitchen areas has not stopped me from fantasizing over what I would really love to have it all look like when I'm done.  And there are more than a few things that I would like to slowly but surely add to my newest endeavor which is my house.  =)  If I can ever decide which room will be decorated in what style or what color or all of those other details I have yet to deal with...

So let's start this wishlist. 

I found these beautiful prints in my jaunt around Etsy looking for things that I will drool over in my house.  And I feel in love with how feminine these beachy fine art prints look.  I can totally see a set of three or so of these in a sequence on my side of the bedroom with a more masculine set of prints on the hubby's side.  Pretty cute, huh?

 I don't know how else to describe what I think of this bench but I LOVE it.  The color, the simple beach style...yeah.  Would LOVE this in my entry way.  Maybe...


It's so colorful!!!  I love it!  Most of the house is carpeted (which I still would put an area rug over) but with a nice soft cottony area rug like this, it might just be what my kitchen sink space needs.  Something to get my cold tootsies off of the cold tile.  =)

Those are just a few of my household wishlist items.  And I'm really excited to start slowly shopping around! 

Have a beautiful day!
