A finished scarf, an outfit, and 7 things about me :)

Here's my finished scarf! It's extra wide and a little on the short side. It's kind of bright, but it works. Once it gets cold around here again, I'll try to incorporate it into an outfit. It's 80 degrees here! That's So Cal for you.

Here's what I wore today: Jeans were given to me by a friend, Keds and blouse were thrifted.

I'm going thrifting tomorrow, yay! I'm going to keep my eyes open for good shoe material: Velvet, corduroy, wool, canvas, and leather. I've also been thinking about using fabric stiffener-I might pick some up at Joann's. I've also been researching soling material.
Yeah, this is definitely my latest obsession.

On another note, I've been given the Stylish Blogger Award by 3 bloggers (Ashleigh, Breeanna, Anne). It's such an honor and I am so happy!

So, without further ado, here's 7 things about me, in no particular order:

  1. I want to make macarons.
  2. I first learned to knit when I was 8.
  3. I learned to crochet because I wanted to make amigurumi. (Google it.)
  4. I have an obsession with cookie dough ice cream.
  5. It takes me a very long time to fall asleep.
  6. I am constantly wanting to start new projects.
  7. I love thrifting and going to yard sales.
And the 9 bloggers that I want to award the Stylish Blogger Award too:
Sandy a la Mode
Lune Vintage
Oh, Mishka
I love you to the moon.
Miss P
Trains and Sewing Machines
Curating Cuteness
Cornflower Blue

I know it's supposed to be 15, but I'm running out of time, so this is it.


  1. Thanks Sunnie, I'm so flattered! Your scarf looks super cosy. You could try fastening it with a vintage brooch or button if it proves a bit short.

  2. i am with you on #1, 6 & 7.
    i haven't tried macarons yet because i live in an apartment with the worst oven ever. moving in may, can't wait.

  3. Oh wow, making shoes sounds so cool! I can't wait to see how they turn out!

  4. Oh, I totally agree with number 6! I have a huge stack of picture frames that I'm waiting to spray paint right now (it's too cold outside to do it!).

    Thanks for the award! :)

  5. you deserve the award! and cookie dough ice cream is my favorite!


I'd love to hear what you think. :)
