I snapped these photos yesterday while hanging out at a buddy’s place in Ballard. I snuck my tripod and camera into the car, but imagine how cool I felt when I had to explain to boyfriend T. and his buddy that I needed a brief sojourn out front to take photos for my blog. Feeling awesome. This from the only girl who wore four inch heels to hang out on a Sunday. But, what can I say? These shoes are cute and I was happy in them. That’s me, forever unapologetically overdressed.

It’s finally raining in Seattle, a long overdue phenomenon after our gorgeous, long summer. There was thunder and lightening all day yesterday and it was so fun to hear while I was busily sewing the day away amid a blur of Billie Holiday and too many cups of coffee. I’m working on several projects right now, and have plans for several more. I was grinning ear to ear at my sewing machine yesterday and felt quite accomplished when I finished my first project. Seriously! It’s been months since I got creative and I was on a total sewing high. After work I’m heading back to the fabric store for more goodies to make my other projects come to life. I can’t wait to share them with you! Happy Monday everyone!
