Vintage inspiration

I have this ever growing love for fabric, ruffles, frills, anything handmade. ;). No I am not a perfectionist but it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful in my eyes. When I see something I like, I give it a shot and will make my pattern as I go along if I need to, which was the case again this time.. Inspiration for this vintage bolero came from this shop on Etsy :, love her shop. Since I think fabric lately, I couldn't help but wonder what it would look like on a necklace, so yes I had to try it! :) I love it actually.

Winter might not be so bad after all with my growing list of "have to try it" projects..haha. My goal is to sew more of my own skirts, and dresses and winter is the perfect time to work on summer dresses.. :)

Fort Whyte

We enjoy going to this place.We don't even have to leave the city.hahah It's so close by yet so much space for the boys and they have a blast there. This time our main reason was to see the geese on the lakes. Ok fine, and to take lots of pictures.

This group of pictures makes me happy. :)

Lots and lots of geese!
