Summer is Just Around The Corner....

I live in Tampa, Florida so the beach is always an option on a nice weekend day! (not trying to rub it in....promise!) But for some reason, we rarely make it out there to enjoy what we have so close by. It is about an hour drive from door to beach, which to most people seems amazing, but after living in West Palm Beach less than two miles from the beach for seven years....this seems like a big hike with two kids for the afternoon.

I just LOVE the feel of the beach, the smell, the sounds, everything about it! So tonight I decided we are going to go back to the beach again this weekend. And in all the excitement, I decided that I wanted to make some pillows that reminded me of the beach. I love them! They don't match anything in my Living room just yet, but once I get a white couch, I will have them EVERYWHERE!

Doesn't it remind you of the most amazingly soft beach towel??

Then I received a special order the other day for this Paris Address Pillow and I am excited about how it turned out. I made it look a little bit more vintage and more like the letters had been stamped on by the Post Office.

All of these pillows are available right here

And after all this sewing sitting in my unfinished sewing room....I decided to search for curtain material. I looked at three stores today for black and white striped fabric or pre-packaged curtains...and came up empty handed. But I think I might go with this fabric. See the post below to get the vision of where I am headed with these curtains. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!! It was sooo nice sewing at my newly painted pink sewing table tonight!
