Tom and I went on a date night, where we ate a delicious dinner, strolled some shops, got psychic readings, and drank a wee bit too much.

What did you do this weekend?


Summer weekend


The Scoop


  1. great bangs! i’m in florida at my mom’s. i can work remotely for 2 weeks, then 2 weeks vacation. i have to wake up at 3:30-ish AM so i don’t disrupt the EU working hours and it’s working out very well. i’m not an early bird at all, but this works for me. i usually take a power nap after lunch and then i still have a big chunk of the day left.

    mom and i started making 3 pillows and the project has become much more complicated than i thought. the material i bought online has a lighter background color than i expected so we had to dye the material, after we cut it. this involves some extra fraying and possible shrinking. we’ve never made pillows with zippers, but there are some great online tutorials.

    we’ve also incorporated one shopping trip per day. i love going to the mall with my mom. it’s pretty rainy but i don’t really mind. i’m just happy to have extra time with mama.

    Your bangs look great! 🙂 And it sounds like a lovely weekend.

  3. What a nice long stay with your Mom in Florida!!! Yay!!! Is it super hot now? Are you loving it?
    That schedule sounds lovely to me!

    can I see pics of your pillows? I am so impressed with the dying and zipper sewing. Zippers seem so scaaaaary.

    What are you shopping for? Clothes? Crafty stuff? I love afternoon rain in Florida. Feels so tropical!

  4. Thank you! 🙂

  5. Cute bangs! They look great on you. You rescued a sweet project from the thrift store. And your stitching is coming along nicely.

I love to hear from you!
