Peninsula Skies

Miami continually displays the most beautiful skies I have ever seen in my entire life.

On this day, the long rays of sunlight from the west were reflected off the underside of the storm clouds moving east.  I felt like I was driving home in a watercolor painting. dsc_0052dsc_0051dsc_0053Stunning.


Pink, Blue & Yellow Tufted Birds

Here’s a completed (and shipped) custom order of 7 Tufted Birds for a 1-year-old’s birthday party!  I think they turned out sweet and I added a monogram and a little bow to one of them as a special touch for the birthday girl :)

Hump Day Finds: Handmade Summer Dresses

Just a few I have been lusting over – If only I had an infinite bank account …

Draped Pocket Dress by CASTCOUTURE

Saw another dress by this seller on the Etsy front page recently, took a peek into their shop and found this beauty!  I love anything with pockets (especially skirts and dresses) and this gorgeous dress has a unique and flattering shape, yet seems comfortable enough to sleep in!

I’m loving the versatility and floatiness (is that a word?) of this dress – Would look great paired with a belt and strappy sandals!

The Line – Blue Cotton Dress by aftershowershop

Great colors and geometric lines – The bow in the back is a nice touch!

Inspired by a Button-Down

The colors in this thrifted button-down inspired me to make a few heart-shaped items in shades of blue, purple, pink and white.
