little things

A collection of today's happy little things...

tank makeover

sad, faded tee

Confession: I actually wore that faded tee yesterday (oh my!).  Moving the embellishment was one of those project seeds.  Now that the flower fluff is off, it's made its way out of my closet for good!

happy surprise!

**a surprise birthday gift for mama and daughter in such cute fabric from the maker at Purdy Things.  My oldest friend sent these, and we love them!  Glass canning jars turned drink bottles.  How clever!

Plus my mom showed up to take me birthday shopping.  Yay!

another go Anywhere Stripes block

I like it!

I'm thinking this one is going to be quite dramatic!

Sometimes when you grow up, birthdays don't feel like birthdays. But sometimes they still do!  And come to think of it, this space is another happy little thing that I'm quite thankful for today.  With gratitude for you!

xo,

Rachel

  17. A little late to the party, but Happy Birthday! I really love your stripey blocks, they are loud and dramatic (but in a good way, not a Miley Cyrus way). Can't wait to see them en masse - they'll be amazing!
