Fall Preview: Cowls

Hello everyone!!! A couple of my cowl scarfs are peaking out for a preview of what's to come for the fall.

There are many different ways to wear this scarf!

The colors on my favorite summer tank top, below, are giving me more yarn color ideas!

Perfect for a Summer Picnic

A friend of mine recently got engaged, so I took a bottle of lemonade for her and her fiance... 
perfect for a summer picnic to celebrate. It's plain simple!

I found the most perfect bottle bag with anchors for summer time :)

Don't forget to tie a gift tag onto the twine.

I'm working on getting my knits ready for the fall and I'm currently working with a chartreuse, acrylic yarn which inspired me to search for some fun chartreuse items.

*chartreuse: a clear, light green with a yellowish tinge.

Backwards Inspiration

I usually find a photo or something that inspires me and then create from that, but this time... 
while walking along the beach there were tons of washed up jellyfish.
They reminded me of my Ice Circle Necklace and Ice Circle Bracelet.

Love Book

I made this LOVE book for my friend Catherine, who recently got married. 
Perfect to add your wedding photos to.
I bought the chip board letters precut and glued paper to each side of the letters,
 adding a little ribbon and a couple of butterflies with metal rings hold each letter together.

Pretty Pillow Palette

A Serena & Lily Summer 2011 Catalog arrived at my door step...not sure how I got on this mailing list but just look at the cover!

I love these bright colors and fun patterns for summer!
This picture makes me want to go to Morocco (country in North Africa, had to look that one up, haha) or India and buy a bunch of brightly colored textiles, with bold patterns and
 make ANYTHING and EVERYTHING from them!!!
