A quick hello!

Piece Number Seven

I probably don't have to say it anymore, but this dress was made with a 1940's pattern and material that we're pretty sure is equally as old. The eyelet trim around the collar and arms is so cute! It's the perfect finishing touch. 

Out in the Garden

Yesterday, after work and school, I went home, put on my dirty sneakers, and headed into our long abandoned garden to attack the weeds. The weather was so beautiful and it felt so nice to get my hands dirty. And, lucky for me, there was someone in the garden to keep me company...

And no, I didn't put him in the wagon, he got in all by himself. He was a little preoccupied with the hole in the bottom to look at me though. 

I can't wait for fresh picked tomatoes and (hopefully, this year) some strawberries as well. And Nissie (the cat) can't wait for more catnip! This beautiful sunny weather has gotten me inspired to spend a little less time cooped up inside and a little more time with my hands in the dirt.

What a cute dress! It looks like it was a lot of work. Also, hear hear about being outside and getting one's hands dirty. I did a bit of that myself yesterday. It was wonderful!
