I rearranged the furniture...

...just to watch the oscars.  Our TV was too far away from the cable outlet before.  I don't know what it is but I love watching the oscars.
I think it's for the gowns (of course) and the acceptance speeches!  I just love the idea that someone can achieve the impossible.  That moment when these famous actors (and etc) become vulnerable and share a little of their journey.  What it means to them...Dreams come true and all that....I love that!While we were watching I made this.  Ever have one of those..."I can make that!" moments?  That's what this is.  I have those moments a lot.  Less often I actually put forth the effort to try and make it.  You can find the real deal here.  She is amazing.  I have to admit I feel kind of like a thief just for making it!  I added some linen for more of a "casual" look.  My lil sis Rose made a really cute one too when she was here.  I just didn't finish mine until now because of the dreaded plague.  
Poor B,  I made him model for me....couldn't get a good enough picture doing the one arm thing!
Today I'm thankful for....making a dent in the laundry.  And that it didn't downpour on me during my nice little run this morning.

About the whole Oscars thing...you are so funny! Maybe I should watch them next year or be in them for something awesome that I have done, whichever comes first.

ooh i like the flowers. But I don't like the tulle underneath as much, probably because I thought it was kleenex at first. How did you make the flowers? Just spiraled around or what?

THat's awesome! I love your style.

I love the Oscar's too. I like to think that one time they were rearranging their furniture too. They are successful at what they love.

And the outifts.

Andrea, I have been salvating over this headband for months now. I keep coming back to your blog to look and it. I sat down to day to "attempt" to make one for my girls and alas I don't have your skills. Would you mind give me some pointers on how you made it. If not I understand. Did you sew the strips before you twisted them? How big were the strips (ie width and length). If you wouldn't mind sharind I would love you forever.
