My parents were out having dinner … Continue reading DIY Fabric Bow Flip-flops

Christmas is fast approaching, you may not think so, but it is! Before you know it, it will be on our doorstep!

And, boy … Continue reading Country Chic Party: Neon-colored Mason Chandelier

I saw a tutorial for doing your own DIY dip-tip and decided to try it on a few older pairs of ballet flats I own. But I didn't want it … Continue reading Current Obsession: Dip-tipped flats!

I was sitting here watching "Doctor Who" on BBCA, when I saw something I started on ages ago and finally decided to pick up and finish today.

I'm sure you have all seen this pin on Pinterest recently: Making your own decorative flip-flops! Anyway, I used to do this when I was younger, but obviously Pinterest was never around to share it so I was excited to pick it back up when I saw this tutorial. But sewing beads on seemed like … Continue reading That’s an Idea! – Button Flip-flops
Happy Independence Day to all in the US! I pray it's not terribly hot and we don't get the same storms that have been moving through the DC area in the past few days. Friday we got a gnarly storm called a "Derecho" late Friday evening. I had never even heard of one before that … Continue reading The “Broad Stripes and Bright Stars” shirt
