I have recently met an awesome Etsy shop owner who lives in my neighborhood!  I am in the process of beginning my own Etsy shop, and Gabrielle has been such a big help with getting started!  I am loving Gabrielle's shop, Event Design Shop!

Welcome To Our Lake House Sign

Summer has begun! It's the best time of the year with many trips to the lake, swimming, recital, my birthday :), and more time to hang with friends and family!

I was asked to redo this metal sign that has not kept up with the weather.  Since the paper didn't hold up the last time, I knew I didn't want to use too much this time.

Fabric Rosette Broach Tutorial

Do you ever wander what to do with old scraps of fabric?  This is an awesome way to use up those old strips!

I have had a dress form in my bedroom for quite some time now and I've named her Sally.  She has been a great hat and scarf display, but I have not really decorated the front too much.  What I really want to do is have a lot of broaches and flowers in a diagonal across the front.  I have gotten some, but not that many.  I decided that I now want to add to Sally by making pins to put on her!

Supplies Needed:
3 Fabric Strips 1 1/2" width
Needle and Thread
White Felt
Hot Glue Gun

Kentucky Derby!

This past weekend was the Kentucky Derby and Oaks! We went to the Oaks, which is the Friday before Derby. Here are some of my phone pictures of Churchill Downs! We had a blast betting horses and watching all of the gorgeous hats walk around!
