Etsy Friday- Summer Edition

One of the best (or worst!) things about getting ready for summer is buying clothes for the warm weather!  Or the water!  On my list of things I love about summer this is #4 The Clothes.  See #3 The Beach here.

Obi Dress, XS-XL

I love this obi dress by Trapper Jane Clothing.  I love the colors!  And it’s appropriate to wear to all sorts of summer functions- bbqs, graduation, weddings, etc. 

Oh La La Maillot--------------Custom Sized

Love this vintage reproduction swimsuit by Miss Brache.  It’s fabulous, and I love that it looks like a one piece but is actually two! 

Purple Dress with dusty pink applique - Swan-L

This Swan Dress by Zoe Chen is totally cool.  I love the color and I LOVE the swan. 


This crocheted bikini by Subrosa Fashions is awesome!!  I love how she uses crochet in her designs but makes it really modern!


WHAT AN AWESOME KNIT TANK!!!!!!  How to Use Art totally hit a homerun with this one.  ooh- it’s so cute.  Perfect for those summer wool festivals when you can’t wear your handknits!

Have a great weekend!!


Starting things

While I was down in CT for Liz’s graduation, I brought yarn- lovely beautiful yarn that I bought at the Sheep Shearing Festival, and I was planning on making Ishbel.  Unfortunately, I forgot the pattern!  So, instead of trying to figure it out (which I totally could have- after I looked at the pattern when I got home I totally felt like a loser for not just knitting the stockinette part!) I decided to design my own shawl.  I just have the beginning, and I’m trying to decide where to go with it next (though, I think I have a plan!

I’ve also begun to eat more healthfully. Instead of a breakfast burrito or delicious cinnamon roll, I’ve been having fruit and yogurt for breakfast every morning. It’s not the biggest change ever- but a small change on the way to many small changes.

I’m getting much more into the idea of summer starting.  Maybe it’s because of the dreary weather we’ve been having this week or the hint of summer we had last weekend.  I kind of can’t wait.
