snippets of life

Today's inspiration monday!

That's when the ladies Megan and Nora of Two Birds Boutique
choose an outfit to inspire a look.

Here's my version of the look.
To see how others styled it go to:
inspiration monday: backstage demands.

Today's inspiration is:
Jennifer Lawrence

My friend gave me the pink dragonfly necklace.
It was designed by the person who did her tattoo.
The blue and fish bird longer necklace came from Target.
My bracelets are made by my mom, and another friend's mom,
 and other various stores.

My skirt and shoes were thrifted.

My nephew Baby JJ turned 1.
They had to give him a bath after he ate his cake.

My twin nieces liked JJ's cake too.
As you can see it's all over their faces.

My nephew Speed Racer likes french fries and diet coke.

My art journal page from April 18, 2013
My mom made me a small quilt of my childhood photos for Christmas in 2012.
She made a quilt we sometimes have on our bed.
My childhood bedspread she made was quilted.

My friend made my teddy bear quilt.
One day when my husband made the bed,
I asked him what the bears were doing.
He said, eskimo kissing.


  1. I love your skirt, I've been looking for one like that! You always have such pretty accessories too! Jennifer Lawrence is one of my favourite actresses ever :) And the Eskimo kissing bears made me smile so much!

    Thank you for your lovely comments as usual, I think I'm going to use 'Feelings of Emotion' as my new title for my Meaningless Words posts xxxx

  5. kids sure love cake. I remember one time working at a grocery store back in (I think) 2005-2006 there was a lady who ordered a fancy birthday cake that kinda looked like a traditional wedding cake but smaller and blue. It cost a fortune and she broke one on the way home the day before. She went to a lot of trouble for a child who won't remember it.

  6. Love the colors you have going on here and the double necklaces

  7. You look so pretty! Great skirt and I love the shoes!
