I bought this Lucky Brand printed tunic on clearance at TJMaxx last weekend, thinking I could maybe pull it off as a dress. Clearly I was drunk, because um, no ma’am. I’m glad I snagged it, though; I think tunics over high-waist skinnies may be my new favorite thing.

When you wake up completely uninspired: romper. Don’t be afraid to drop some cash on a good one; it felt ridiculous to spend $80 on this LOFT romper last year, but I still wear it at least once a week. Nordstrom has a similar style under $100.

Σκουλαρίκια από δέρμα – lether jewerly


σκουλαρίκια από δέρμα

Πανεύκολα και πολύ κομψά σκουλαρικάκια στο λεπτό. Τι θα χρειαστούμε;

  • δέρμα
  • χρυσό σπρέι/μαρκαδοράκι
  • κουμπώματα σκουλαρικιών
  • κρικάκια
  • ψαλίδι

Λοιπόν αυτό που κάνουμε αρχικά είναι να κόψουμε δύο κομμάτια του δέρματος σε σχήμα φύλλων ανάλογα με το μέγεθος που θέλουμε να έχει το σκουλαρίκι μας. Στη συνέχεια βάφουμε με το χρυσό μαρκαδοράκι ή το σπρέι τα σκουλαρικάκια μπρος και πίσω και τα αφήνουμε να στεγνώσουν. Με ένα ψαλίδι ψαλιδίζουμε τις άκρες του φύλλου όπως φαίνεται στην παρακάτω εικόνα:


Έχουμε διάφορες επιλογές ως προς το πώς θα διακοσμήσουμε τα σκουλαρίκια μας. Πριν σας προτείνω διάφορους τρόπους δεν ξεχνάμε να τοποθετήσουμε τα κουμπώματα.Ανοίγοντας μια μικρή τρύπα στο πάνω μέρος περνάμε το κρικάκι και στη συνέχεια το κούμπωμα. Παρακάτω σας προτείνω διάφορους τρόπους διακόσμησης .Διαλέγετε και παίρνετε.

Natural yarn for a small bag.

In fin dei conti ho sempre lavorato la corda soprattutto in estate, portachiavi, borse, bracciali, collane, cinture, portavasi. Il materiale resistente lo rende indistruttibile, in poche parole quello che creo con la corda durerà una vita!

Mi piace il bottoncino-perlina in legno, è levigato e grazie a lui la borsettina resterà ben chiusa! Cosa ci vedo dentro? Di tutto dal rossetto al pacchetto di fazzolettini, dalle chiavi alle sigarette, dalle monetine al blocchetto degli appunti con relativa matita ( indispensabile).

C’è anche la versione maschile? No è già adatto a tutt@ così com’è,  non vi sembra?

Mason Jar Salads To Go


mason jar salads to go – σαλάτες σε βάζο

Originally posted on The Goodie Goodie Foodie:

I hear from a lot of people that eating on the go, or taking lunches to work, is too much work. I call your bluff. I call your bluff, because I have been packing all of my husband’s and my lunches for 15 years, as well as all my kids’ lunches. It takes very little time, especially if you factor in leftovers into your meal planning and account for adding the leftovers to your lunches.

To give you an example, I took last night’s leftover Asian-Inspired Chicken Salad with Garlic Ginger Dressing and turned it into lunches for my husband next two days at work. There is no excuse for eating crappy food. There just isn’t. And this idea, of Mason jar salads, its just so easy and a great way to eat well on the go.

I don’t know who thought of this first, but I’d like to tell…

A Basket for Louis


crochet basket – πλεκτό καλάθι

Originally posted on Crochet Club:

Louis needed a basket to snuggle in. His people mentioned something about it rather indirectly (I thought I heard the word “cat”, or maybe it was “bat”? And there was something about “basket”, but it might have been “brisket”, I’m not sure). At any rate, when I offered to make Louis a basket of his very own, they didn’t object. Well, not very insistently. I knew of course they were only being polite so as not to trouble me and so I assured them I’d be delighted to make it.
I asked them what color they wanted it to be (I am so very careful not to impose my designs on my friends’ décor). They said maybe dark red. Fortunately I had some, and I thought it would go well with the gray.
Louis’s people liked the basket, and I hope Louis will too (Right now it’s high summer so…

Just knit a hat!


knit a hat – πλεκτό καπέλο

Originally posted on Local & Bespoke:

After the chicken hat, and before the kind lesson in white balance from a knowledgeable friend and reader… I decided something simple was called for.  This is the swatchless watch cap from Knitting from the Center Out by Daniel Yuhas.  Locals may recognise that I am casting on, on the train.

This hat went a few places, from our house…

…to solstice dinner with a big bunch of friends large and small.

This is a small amount (66g) of luxury handspun merino/yak/silk naturally dyed by A Verb for Keeping Warm in ‘sticks and stones’.  I bought the fibre from someone else’s destash and it struck me as a delightfully soft and understated hat for someone.  Done.

Crochet Thread Pendant Flower Pattern

A triangle is an excellent way of bridging the difference between flowers of odd shapes and sizes; bringing the piece together. This crochet thread flower pendant is comprised of three (3) separate motifs hand-sewn together.

  • The top could be any open-work flower pattern. I used a Helga Irland design. The pattern used is a variation (6 petals) of the cinquefoil pattern posted here https://crochetthread.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/irish-crochet-motif-free-pattern-cinquefoil/ 
  • The center trillium is:
    ch 4, 2-dc-tog in 4th ch from hook, ch 3, sl st in same ch sp (this center ch sp is used throughout) *ch 3, 2-dc-tog, ch 3, sl st, *repeat 1 time, **sc-ch1-sc-ch1-sc-ch1-sc in the ch3 sp, sc in top/tog, ch 3, sc in last sc, sc-ch1-sc-ch1-sc-ch1-sc in next ch3 sp, sl st in center, **repeat 2 times, add stem (optional) ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining, sl st, end/break thread.
