Summer Breeze makes me feel fine

Very excited to be working on some new designs, well not entirely "MY" design, my latest project is a vest for this Spring/Summer . I got a Vogue Vintage pattern from the 70's and thought it would be a perfect come back for accessorizing on  a dress, top or braving it alone...though I wouldn't,  I'm sure some gals would have no problem.
The color combination I chose , I know isn't very "springy" or" Summery", I don't necessarily always feel that just because it's Summer we all should wear Yellows and  Oranges to go with the's really whatever strikes your fancy and these colors did just that for me.
I will, however, be putting some up on my Etsy site soon, full of Light and fun Summer prints.
I sort of chose this Mushroom print as a sort of last minute for the straps, I think it worked well...I really love it actually.
I'll be posting some pictures of when I wear this little vest to show different ways you can wear it over your favorite pieces. Oooh! and there are some other pieces in the pattern, that make for lovely knit vests and leather...I'll be experimenting with those as well. In the meantime, I have to go clock in to work only I could sew all day and night.

New place new plants and more

I feel that in the past 2 years my life has taken me all over the place. I try and stick to one thing and the more I hold on the more I get pushed back. Oh it's nothing bad, I'm speaking more in terms of making a permanent home.
So I moved to MO, had a house by the lake then moved to my boyfriends mothers house and now I'm in the heart and soul of Kansas City in some type of old brick building you'd find in NYC for the price of a house, but not having to pay that absurd amount.
It's clean and cozy and I get to start from scratch.
I have been reluctant to get back into blogging, as I had began to post almost daily a few years ago when I started, I began to make connections with beautiful people who shared the same views or aesthetics In life. Then I started to drift away and completely stopped blogging or reading other blogs.
I miss that, maybe it's winter that makes it painful to dress up and blog about your day, whatever it is, I feel happy to be back.
I started reading some other blogs today and I felt warm and fuzzy all over again, like when you discover something for the first time.
I treated myself to a better camera and slowly started to play around with it. It's sort of sporadic the way my moods take me to picking up the camera and taking pictures, but this last set I had fun and I'm very pleased with , enough to share them.
Hoping my new designs will emerge if I keep this blogging thing up....
