A Fashion Moment

I interrupt my regularly scheduled posting for a fashion moment.

For those who don't know, I am addicted to Project Runway and love so many things about it. I love watching the designers construct dresses and outfits week after week. I am such a novice sewer, even though I have been doing it since I was a little girl, and their ability to drape and measure and cut, and ruffle and pleat and tuck just amazes me. Sewing has never completely taken hold of me nor me of it, and even though I have definitely found my niche in paper crafts, I still love fashion, and I love watching the creative process behind it even more...

A note about this past weeks episode: I understand why they voted Kit off last week, I also understand her point of view and what they she was saying - and I loved it! It was like little Bo-Peep goes couture... I think if she had worn a wig and carried a hook/staff thing it might have gone over better...

I also understood and ADORED Christians point of view. This one was the clear winner of the night. I want curtains that look like this dress in my dining room. Luscious is the only word to describe this dress (which was created for the AvauntGuard Challenge...) It's like whip cream or tiramisu or both.... yummy!

Finally I am very very flattered to have been nominated by The Farmers Wife for The Daily Dose award! Thanks so much!

I am nominated the following 3 people who I look forward to reading everyday for my Daily Dose of inspiration (or at least every time they post, which is hopefully everyday!)

My friend Alison at Chino House. Even though I see her often during the week, I love the variety of things she says/post in her blog, because they aren't always things we have talked about or gotten around to. Everything from her packing list, to granola bar recipes, to Deep Thoughts, Alison is full of great morsels - for thinking on, or for baking up.

Next up, is Andrea at Everyday Beauty- I just love her vision for things - from her creations to her styling to her pictures, it is all soooo lovely and inspiring! I am always excited when I see she has a new post!

and finally is Missy Sue Hanson who is a new Blog pal and fellow Gilmore Girl fan. She is in the process of opening a new little shoppe and I am so excited for her, and loving being able to join her on her journey! She also creates the most lovely things!!!


  1. Congratulations on your award, I love Project Runway also, we don't have it here at the moment:( Have a good day, Rachael

  2. I always try to catch Project Runway...could you believe the gal who "spit marked" her patterns? LOL


  3. I am SO addicted to Project Runway. It's really funny because the farmer watched it with me one evening (only because he was too lazy to get up) and now HE'S addicted. He makes sure I call and remind him when he's traveling out of town.

    I absolutely cannot believe that Christian and Chris created that dress in two days! I know how much time it takes to do all that ruffling even with the ruffling foot.

    I'm glad you're passing on the Daily Dose award.

  4. Oh yay! I have a Project Runway buddy I can chat with! I totally LOVED Christian's dress. I want curtains like that too! But, I liked Kit's dress too! It was one of my favorites. If Christian ever gets voted off I think the show will suck. Who do you think will be the final three? I think it'll be Christian & Rami & Victorya.
    I was so bummed when Kevin got voted off. He was cute. HAHA!

  5. I LOVE Project Runway too. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I can barely sew though! I liked Kit's idea. It was very "collage" like. I try to sketch my own design for each week's challenge. It's a fun way to play along! Congrats on the award!

  6. OOOh I share your interest in Project delightful and their talent abounds. I love that dress you said you want curtains made out of in the dn. room. When you order yours please order four pairs for me.
    Have a lovely evening.

  7. I am so with you. If they would have just added those pieces they could have done better. I did love Christian and Chris's. Chris is my favorite~

  8. By the way I acutally DID have curtains like that back in the 80's. They were from a company called Dorothy's Orignals (she advertised in Country Living) and they're probably still made today. I had four pairs of curtains and I think there was about 50 yards of fabric used to create them.

  9. big Project Runway fan here too...and I loved Kit's dress too...just AMAZING to me how the whole process works.
