Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons. I think it's a toss up between fall and spring for me :) 
I enjoy the just about every detail that comes with fall. Pumpkin pie (with vanilla bean ice cream!!), knee high boots, my favorite sweaters coming out of storage, starbucks, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the changing of leaves, walks down a trail covered in fallen leaves, the smell of leaves....I could go on and on. 
Today I took my daughter out for a mini photo shoot to take pictures of my newest flower and had no idea where I was going to go. 
I knew I wanted it to be in the woods (a nice place in the woods where there are NO visible spiders!) with lots and lots of leaves. 
I didn't want to drive far (time management) so I just drove around until I found a nice place about 7-8 min from where I live. And get this, it had trails, BONUS!
 I can't wait to go back when I have more time to just walk and take in everything about nature that I love. 
The new flower that you see if my first ever done with a tutorial! Yup. 
Everything else I have ever made was made by me just playing with fabrics and seeing what I could make with them :) 
Me and anything with directions just do not get along! I am more of a figure-it-out-as-I-go person or I just wing it. I got this tutorial from Snazzie Drawers, ever heard of her? 
She's fabulous and puts my creations to shame!
 I just wish I knew how to sew better so that I could buy one of her sewing tutorials. I've been wanting to offer a different style of flower since I tend to get bored doing the same style over and over again. 
This is Snazzie Drawers London Tea Rose Tutorial and I made this one with an eco friendly felt and LOVE the results! Hope you like it too :)

I have fallen out of the blog world and I would love to get back in. I do love reading other blogs and being inspired by others that write blogs. 
I have a couple of other tutorials that I have attempted and can't wait to share them with you! Stay tuned....


  1. glad you are back!

    love the location that you shot your pictures at! so wish arizona had a place like that for me to go {okay, well they do, but i'd have to drive 2 hours to get there!!!}.

    little miss thing is beautiful and looks so grown up!

  2. HEY JENNI! Long time no see eh?!?! ;) Yes living in VA is so beautiful during the fall, I think that's one of the reasons I love fall so much! We're surrounded by it :)

    Thank you so much :) I know, it's so sad she's getting so big :( I took a peek at yours as well, they are all getting big, sigh
