I’m a bracelet hound. I wear too many at once. But I love them all. Sometimes I want something really sweet and simple, so I came up with this sweet trio.
I used a cream colored string for all of them. For the first one I got one of these S shaped hooks. Hook it on one end then tie a knot to connect the string. You want it fairly fitted to your wrist.
Done. How easy is that?
For the second one, I got some silver glass beads and put them on the string and tied a knot at each end.
Then make two slip knots on the back side so you can adjust it to get it on and off.
For the third one I used my Chan Luu inspired tutorial to in the same beads and string.
There you have it!

Has anyone ever been to Filoli Gardens?
We got to go last weekend with my grandma. It’s about an hour from our home. If you’re ever close to it- GO! The 36,000 sq ft. house tour is amazing with so many beautiful details.
The gardens are so gorgeous I won’t even try to describe them.
The kids had hours of fun running all around.
I was, personally, so inspired by all the textures.
Anyhow, go. It’s great.
And it’s just fun to say the word “Fiii-looowww-leeee” over and over. It’s such a fancy word that I wish had more meaning so I could use it frequently.

I decided to drop out of project run and play. Let me briefly explain…
I just don’t have time to work on specific deadlines right now. I ended up having to work at my girls school this week amongst all my other duties and couldn’t finish this weeks outfit. I’m trying to complete scarf orders and still give my family all the time, attention and love they need and this week, I just couldn’t do that well so I had to prioritize. And as you mamas all know, they’re always first. Sometimes things we really want to do and are interested in take a backburner to our priorities. And this is exactly one of those cases. I knew that some of the other competitors have put so much into this great blog that Micalah runs. So I’m so thrilled because Leisel is back for another chance!! What an honor it’s been to be with such great women with such great ideas. Please go continue to support them! Thank you all for all the support you’ve given me and thank you, mostly, for understanding.

On of my favorite things to sleep in is this little jersey romper that I have. Here’s a way to make your own!
Get two T’s.
Cut the first one off. This will be your top piece.
We’ll use the other one for the shirts part. Fold it in half and cut out a piece as shown. Sort of like oversized underwear.
