Twenty~Six {What I Wore Wednesday}

Last week, while pinning yet another outfit to Pinterest, I said to myself Butterfly, ’cause I always call myself Butterfly, what’re you gonna do with all these pins? They’re just sitting in you’re virtual closet, how about trying to wear some of that stuff? So that’s what I decided to do, wear as much of the stuff that I’ve pinned as I can. And this is what I’ve come up with so far…

What I Wore Sunday

I felt like a Russian peasant in this outfit. You can see the inspiration pin right here.

What I Wore Monday

This outfit was so chic and comfy. And totally unlike anything I’d normally wear. Can you believe I tucked in my top? You can see the inspiration pin right here.

And, yep, I’ll be doing this the rest of the week.

What do you do with those outfits that you pin? Do you use them for inspiration or pin it and forget it?

Retro Baby Blanket {On the Hook}

Retro Baby Blanket {Living Outside the Stacks}

I’ve spent the last few months working on this baby blanket. Not steady work, just off and on when I haven’t felt like doing much of anything else. You know those days, when you need to do something but you don’t want to think too much or too hard?

The blanket is for a young couple at our church who are having a baby boy in the next few months. They have two of the most adorable little girls, all bubbly and bouncy and full of giggles, ribbons and bows. That poor little boy is going to have a hard way to go. Smile.

I selected the colors:

  • Aran
  • Turquoise
  • Latte
  • Coffee

Because I thought they were appropriately boy but not traditionally boy. The parents are a young and hip couple with a Christian rock edge to them. And, well, I like coffee so any colors that evoke images of my beloved beverage can’t be wrong, right? Right.

I still have the vest from a few months back that I need to finish, but I don’t see that happening any time soon. Maybe I’ll try my hand at something new like boot socks. Or leg warmers. Or fingerless gloves. Or a hat.

What are you working on this week?
