Shirring I actually like

I am in love with this dress on Etsy.  I'm worried I'm not enough of a free-spirit to pull it off, though.  We'll see.  I'll just let it simmer.

Check out this great linky party at Create Something Inspiring.  I've decided I need more inspiring images on my walls.  I have been brainstorming images that would create an environment of hope and hard work, but after looking through these, I am thinking words would be equally effective.

Sewing Table

Oh, yes.  The sides do fold down.  You should check it out on Ana-White.  She is my hero.  One day, I am going to grow up to be like Ana.  

I did make my first woodworking project the other day.  A darling little giraffe.  But the baby hit it hard against something and it broke at the neck.  (An unforeseen consequence of choosing an animal with a long skinny neck and making it with pine.)  It was just an experiment, but it turned out well enough for me to want to do more.  I've heard poplar is a nice wood choice for toys.

Flower building toy

A new one from Made By Joel.  I think it's lovely.  My husband agrees, but thinks it has too many pieces.  It's going on my list anyway.  I can always cross it out later.
