While growing up my dearest older sister and I would continually joke about being the city and country mouse, even though we grew up together 🙂 So. Now, whenever we visit no matter where we’re coming from or going to, or who’s home we reside in, we know who is truly at heart, the country and city mouse.

So last night I collected my sister, and drove her to the Elle Street Inn, where we enjoyed grilled cheese & crab on sourdough. Delish.

Today we’ve been eating delicious food, talking non-stop, releasing patterns (check out Elegant Economy!), and shopping. I also poked my by entire yarn collection in my sister’s lap and asked for a proposed recommendation for each hank of yarn I own. Luckily she picked out all my needles and stash, so I just needed some additional guidance.

Also, thanks to my sweet sister, I have procured a fabulous flirty skirt pattern for the spring that I’ll be making dozens of, once I finish the bridesmaid entourage of dresses (pics to come).

We’re off to go shopping, will be tweeting our progress!

Item accomplished yesterday worth noting: The guest bed is now the guest bed, and NOT the laundry bed. Dear me, I’ve been such a little hustling bustling woman that I do occasionally forget do the most simple tasks (i.e. sweeping the dreadful dust-bunnied stairs, and putting away folded laundry). It is my personal resolve to not allow such trifles to guilt me from my true areas of enjoyment.

  • Making cupcakes, popovers and other delectable, typically mini, delights
  • The preparation and hosting of many friends, for over-nighters or simple dinner fare
  • AND — Sassing you all up with the latest trends — [SPRING FASHION ALERT coming soon (and yes, it may include orange, citrus)
  • Inspiring y’all with new sewing & thrifting ideas and tricks

My vintage fashion barrel came about a month ago, but I only unpacked it this past week.   Much enjoyment from these new treasures. Doesn’t it look tempting?  I can thank my dear childhood playmate for these sweet treasures.

& now for tail of the cow. As I’m sure you all saw from the tweets, my sweetheart and I ventured out last weekend. One of the grand events we enjoyed was a cattle sale. I’ve never been to one, but I tell you look at this gorgeous cow! Actually this is a vintage one I dug up for you on GF 🙂

Here is another lovely bovine…did you ever see such a pretty cow?

I’m off to industriously hem a GUAVA dress, and purchase materials for a batch of commissioned bridesmaid dresses. Have a bird-chirp monday 🙂
