Little Things In Life- Dry Erase Crayons

I am sick and tired of my dry erase markers drying out. Today on my trip to the local big box store I discovered dry erase crayons. This is genius! The package come with a little eraser cloth and a crayon sharpener on the back of the box. They work on my white board calendar and on my stainless message board. Has anyone else tried these?

Last Days of Summer

The end of August is always bittersweet.  When the July heat subsides, it is finally bearable to enjoy the outdoors.   Then with a snap, the realization sets in, that summer is over.  My husband goes back to work, we get into our school routine, the days get shorter, etc.. Here is a glimpse at our evening at Hollywood Beach.  How are you ending your summer?

Remember This?

Christmas Eve of 1982 and I received the coolest present ever! The Crayola Caddy. Well here it is, 30 years later, filled with new crayons and markers.

Laundry Room- Lined Curtains

This is a tutorial on how to create lined pocket rod curtains.  I am really not an expert sewer, but this is a project for a novice.  The key is to cut straight lines, and IRON everything...This specific fabric is organic cotton twill, that has a really nice stiffness to it.  It looks really great with a lined too!

A Day at The Vintage Garage

Today I felt like a kid in a candy store. I met up with my two girlfriends, and went to The Vintage Garage, located in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood. Here, vendors overtook the bottom two floors of a parking garage. The feel was definitely more vintage flea market with a focus on costume jewelry, mid century furniture, and finally tons and tons of 1950's and 1960's clothes. Here are a few of my finds:
I'm so excited to hang these wash boards in my new laundry room.  

Sorry for the bad picture.  But this dress was fun and flowy.
 It just fit really weird on top.
Super cute floral pattern a-line dress with drawn elephants.
I loved this dress, but I couldn't breathe in it.
This dress was the winner!!  

P.S. I bought these dresses from Zzouzi Vintage!

Girly Girl

My baby girl is soon turning 2.  Wow where did these two years go?  Yesterday my aunt gifted her this princess table, and boy ohh boy she was so excited!  Since she has a big brother, we haven't bought her any super girly toys.  For one, I'm not a big fan of princess stuff or barbies, and secondly I wanted to wait and see how her personality developed. Well, I certainly have a girly girl!  Princess stuff and all, I'm okay with that.

Loukoumaki- A Sweet Treat for a Bland Wardrobe

My summer has been, busy, busy, busy.... I've been focusing on honing my photography skills.  In the meantime, my friend Christina asked me to
photograph her line of Greek inspired silk-screened t-shirts, Loukoumaki.  Here's a glimpse of her recent work, and my photography....
