my tuesday muse: navy + gold + green

It's really tough for me to imagine a life without pink, but I'm trying oh-so hard. Right now I'm loving navy + blues + green with a twist of gold. They look so super clean and grown-up together.

Over the weekend I hauled out my sewing machine and dominated the dining room table. Um, yes, I have a craft room and yes, I still prefer bringing everything out to the dining room to really spread out. That way my craft room stays cleaner! Plus from a logistical standpoint, it's just plain easier to keep an eye on the boy and the stove at the same time...

Back to sewing: I made some cute bowties for Graham which I promise to share soon! Since then, I have been staring at an unassuming pile of navy + white striped fabric just begging to be turned into shades for Jeff's office. It's been somewhere on my to-do list for the last 6 months, but today I'm equally loving it in its neatly-folded state next to a stack of pretty threads and measuring tape. Oh dear. I get more than a little side-tracked sometimes. There are still 7 bare naked windows in this house, begging for some serious attention. On the sunny side: I am embracing this process, no matter how long it takes.

Such a great combination of colors! I am seriously loving gold right now, it makes everything better.

Gorgeous! Given the weather we've just been hit with...I'll take any color that isn't white.

But usually, I'm the reverse of you: I'm a greens and blues girl who is working to infuse her world with just a little bit more pink.

As always, dreamy, dreamy photos!

I have a craft room myself, but I always seem to migrate to the dining room table as well. Our dining room table is just bigger. I can spread more stuff out on it. And this way I can still be part of whatever is going on outside my craft room. I'm a girl who likes to be in the know :)

Where did you find such a huge spool of baker's twine?

Such pretty color combos! And I have a designated craft area too..but where is my sewing machine right now? On my dining room table with stacks of fabric and crafty stuff surrounding it. So much more fun to be in the thick of it with the family. Can't wait to see those bow ties!

Loving blue & green these days! It started with my St Paddys day outfit and I want to see more of it. And little bowties! Show us! I'm thinking that Gabe might need to wear his first one for Easter.
