Getting a little crafty...

Hater of all things traditional.
And now I find myself...
It's something I have always wanted to learn.
When I was a little girl,
my grandmother made a majority of my dresses.
So nearly a year ago I bought a completely rad sewing machine,
with every intention of making something.
But the completely radness of the sewing machine
had me completely afraid to give it a try...
until I saw this post.

And here I am,
two weeks later...
And though the scarfs will not be perfect,
maybe even a little wonky...
they are handmade
by me.
And at least I know that
I can sew!


Boxing leaves with cars...

These last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind.  Why is it that as soon as November hits everything just speeds up…way too fast!?  Let’s see, we started off the month in Hilton Head at the Concours d’Elegance.  I am truly-madly-deeply NOT a car chick, but how could anyone resist this lovely lady. 

And then we took our annual autumn leaf tour up to the North Georgia mountains, unfortunately we were a week or two late so we missed the peak colors.  Of course, the tops of the trees were still gorgeous!

Finally this past weekend we celebrated as Manny Pacquiao made history.  Now I know I have no personal connection to the Philippines and Fred is equal parts German & Filipino and 100% American, but I was certainly feeling a little cultural pride!
