Easy D.I.Y.

...so easy...two dish towels stitched together...cut a piece from top to use as pocket on bottom half...stitch ribbon at neck and waist...done. Imagine doing this with all the cool, colorful dishtowels sold in Target...

Kitchen Inspiration...

I found this image on one of my favorite blogs, Design Sponge...it inspired me to go out and look for white subway tile for my little kitchen project...Well, I found it for just 16.00 bucks a case...a case will cover 10 sq.ft...more than enough to do my backsplash...YIPEE! Now if I could just decide on a paint color...

Love at first sight...

...I would enjoy sitting here with a margarita and my girlfriends...

Sweet...

I used to collect dolls...I have a box full of them in the bottom of the closet...I'm trying to decide what to do with them...I don't really want to see them all over the house or displayed as a group...I like the way this little lady is displayed...sitting all alone on a shelf with other favorite things...

Happy Monday....

I purchased a black sweater/scarf set similar to the photo on the right over the weekend from the GAP for just $24.00 bucks...It was a great bargain shopping weekend...went to IKEA to purchase a few accessories for my small kitchen face lift and couldn't find a thing...sigh...why does that always seem to happen, when you have the cash, you can't find anything you really like...I did buy some cool shoes for $5.00 bucks...will share pics later.

Be cool this weekend...don't let this happen to you

...looks like anything can happen after a wild friday night...It's going to be 85 degrees in the NYC this weekend...yippeeeeee.

Mini Marathon



...a few weeks ago Mini did a solo dance performance at NYU...I designed her funky t-shirt...Mini loves to dance and she looked so cute...

...original drawings going on sale...

...there seems to be some interest in purchasing my fashion sketches...I'll photograph the ones I can part with and put them up on the blog for sale next week...$20.00 each, 3 for $50.00...first come first served...thanks guys.

Workspace Inspiration...

...the two desks look like easy D.I.Y. projects.
I could use a new desk...

...When I get focused...

...when things settle down and I can focus on my designs...I'll be pumping out very similar dresses for the spring...heart.



Easy D.I.Y.

...I purchased the frame (stretchers...used by artist to stretch their canvas) from Michael's craft store...they come in different lengths...they cost around $10 bucks for all four pieces...they click together at the corners...lay the frame onto your fabric and staple...that easy...It was really too small for behind my bed...I eventually moved it into the hall...I heart it...and I can change the fabric according to my moods...

Last Night...

...O.K....so look dawg, as far as Mini and I are concerned American Idol can end this nonsense right now and sign this man, Adam Lambert to a contract...I had the same reaction as Paula while watching him sing, it just touched me...Mini said, "Paula and I need to get a life"...I told Mini, "Oh, my little butterfly, one day you will understand...just promise me that you will call mama when it happens"...lol.
I'm heading over to Itunes to download this song right now...thank you very much...

Look what I found...

...cleaning out a closet and came across more of my old design sketches...fun.

Thinking about...

I saw a very similar styled chair in the Salvation Army over the weekend and I didn't buy it...I can't stop thinking about it...I may have to go back and get it...some girls collect shoes, I collect chairs...I really have no place to put it...but I can't help it...I'll keep you posted...

Pose...

...I luv this picture...I think it would be hard for anyone to look bad while posing like this...I may try it with Mini...

Feels like Sunday...

...clean, simple and stylish...can't go wrong

Luvin' it...

...especially the nightie hanging at the window...very sexy...

Today's Musical Inspiration...

...what a day...Mini is fine...but, yesterday was not easy...It's getting harder and harder...as Mini gets older and more understanding of her circumstances...what do you say when your child cries out, "why me?"...

We went to the mall after her treatment and Mini just wanted to go home...I played this song in the car and it cheered her up a bit...but, I'm sure she still thinking about what the future holds for her...sigh.

please excuse the random post...

lisa bonet.



my favorite food.




one day i'll have one.




peace and quiet.

I'm honored...

...the wonderful, critically acclaimed blog, Desire To Inspire has chosen Soul Pretty as a blog to read in their Easter Reading Guide...YEAH! So head over to their blog to learn about other new and exciting blogs. I did.

Mini...

...just want to thank everyone for their well wishes as Mini has been accepted into the school of her choice...YEAH! I'm working on being present and enjoying victories but there always seems to be another hurdle just waiting for us to jump...tomorrow Mini will have new procedure at the clinic which will remove 80% of her blood and replace it with 80% of donated blood...please keep the kind wishes coming...as I try to find an appropriate way to celebrate Mini's victory.

Look of the day...

JCrew...When I worked in Corporate America there was a JCrew store right downstairs from my office...I lived in the stuff...haven't thought much about it until Mrs. Obama started wearing it...So I took a second look and I like what I see...check it out.

I'll just park this here...so i can find it later...

I'm going to build a twin size bed for my terrace (if the weather ever breaks in NYC) and this is exactly what I want it to look like...

Sweet...

...it doesn't take much space to have your own sanctuary.

Romantic...

...I would not mind paying a few bills here.

I like...

I don't have any overhead lighting in my apartment...I think I'll pick up a couple of these wall lights on my next trip to IKEA...

Cool...Inspiration

...i have to start sewing again.
