i am enjoying days off that actually fall on a weekend, a rarity around here. the weather is really starting to warm up with temps in the high 20's- perfect dress wearing days.. i'm planning on cutting one from a floral sheet from the stash. now just to decide which pretty floral to use.
have a lovely weekend.


  1. Love that cutlery tray shelf, looks fantastic. And cannot wait to see the dress you whip up, enjoy your work free weekend. mel x

  2. I really like that cutlery tray come shelf too Zara. Good thinking on that one. I have a nice piece of milk glass for ze collectioni. Will post next week x

  3. I love the idea of the dress. Very Von Trappe in a good way! The big brown flowers perhaps?
    Your veges are amazing. Are there no evil wild life critters there to eat them?

  4. Such a lovely list of six - I'm particularly taken with the brown wrapping. So simple, but still very lovely.
