Friday, Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone!  Feature Friday will return next week, but for now I'm going to leave you with this video.  Johnny and Hope emailed it to me and we just keep watching it-- it's so adorable!

I hope your weekend is long and wonderful!  xoxo Katie

Etsy Love

Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my face.  It's time for some Etsy love!

This dress wants me to wear it.  It told me so.

I LOVE this!!!

These are so pretty!!

This is saying a lot... I'm crazy for some B&G.

What girl is NOT drooling over one of Moorea's pieces?  I certainly don't know one. 

 I'm off to meet up with one of my dearest friends.  Her name is Amy and she is the girl who encouraged me to pursue Skunkboy Creatures AND she taught me how to bake pie.  She is amazing, and it's been four years since I've seen her!  I'm pretty excited.  ;)  
Happy Thursday!  xo. Katie

Scheduling and Weather and Whatnot

My blogging has been so mixed up lately!  This crazy weather, a terribly messy house, and a photoshoot that had to be dumped, have all been factors in my disorganization.  Not just with the blog.  I'm feeling disorganized in life as well.  Does a messy work area affect your productivity?  I really feel like it throws my emergency breaks on!

Anyway, I hope you're having a great day!  Once I can get this video camera working again I'll have a fun summer hair tutorial for you!  Oh, and once we stop having to run to the basement every hour or two for tornado warnings (I'm exaggerating) maybe I'll have a Weekly Wears post for you.  ;))

(The only picture that turned out of a WHOLE batch!  What I wore... to a failed photo shoot.  ;))

Movie Monday

I'm trading Music Monday for Movie Monday this week, because I'm getting SO excited as this movie release approaches.  I truly heart Miranda July, and I totally melt at the beginning of this trailer when the kitty starts talking! 

I can't wait!

In other news, my "Closet Clean-Out" shop is open and if you're interested, you can view it here.  I'll be adding more in a week or two.  I'm just giving myself time to really decide what stays and what goes.

Feature Friday: The Velvet Bird

Oh my goodness!  How did I forget to share the fact that I got to meet and hang out with sweet Vanessa a couple of weeks ago?!  Well, I did, and I have to say, she is one of the most genuinely nice, adorable, and interesting girls out there.  Bonus?  She sews her own clothes and is into natural skin care.  I wish we lived closer so we could have sewing/face mask/popcorn parties.  (<---Okay, I don't remember if she's a popcorn eater, but I think a party isn't complete without popcorn... mostly because I ADORE it!) 

The day we met up we had a try-on session at Red Velvet, drank bubble tea and ate cupcakes, and I got lost more than once (I'm a bad navigator!)  As we were going for coffee I got an emergency phone call from Johnny and Hope, letting me know that the place they were visiting had closed and kicked them out!  We rushed over and saved the day.  We're practically super heroes.

Did I forget to mention she has goats?  Oh, yeah... she has goats (!).

If you are blog hopping, you should definitely check hers out if you haven't already.  I plan to try this next:

This weekend we have BOWLING PLANS (my favorite!), two graduations to attend, and Hope is cooking us dinner.  Yum, yum!
   Happy Friday, friends!!!  xoxo

Weekly Wears: Rain, Rain, Come and Play

I love rainy days for many reasons-- one of these is getting to wear my wellies!  Comfy AND practical might be my favorite combination.  ;))

Dress:  Red Velvet
Belt:  Thrifted
Hair Clip:  Giant Dwarf
Knee Socks:  80s Purple
Boots:  Hunter Wellingtons

I happened to post my last Weekly Wears post right before Blogger bombed last week, so 20 of your comments got erased before I got to read them!  I was a little bummed, but I have still enjoyed reading the wardrobe guilty pleasures that are there. 
Happy Thursday!  xoxo Katie

Little Poe: 4 Months Old

I'm a week late on posting these, but you know... that's life!  Busy, busy, busy...  I have to say, I CANNOT believe this little one is 4 months already!  She smiles, laughs, rolls over, and baby talks now.  Her voice is so cute I almost can't stand it!  ;)

This is from a couple of weeks ago when she first started talking (like, THE day she started).  Her voice is less pterodactyl-y now.  Either way, I think she's adorable!

Wedding Weekend: Part 1

As many of you know, this past weekend Jeremy and Elsie became husband and wife.  It was a truly beautiful ceremony for a completely perfect match.  I drove down Friday night for a girls' night out, where we ate delicious Asian food and followed that with candy fondue.  It was such a blast!

Getting to spend time with Rachel and Holly, and meet LA (I seriously adore her) in person were some of the great highlights of the trip!
(I love this girl.)

Saturday we had the rehearsal, dinner, and bouquet making at the shop.  Hope also couldn't wait and decided to give Elsie her gift a little early.  :)

They matched!  :)

It was such a great excuse to get to spend lots of time with all of these people that I love!  I'll be back in a day or two with Part 2 of the story.  :)  xoxo Katie

Progress Peeks

I'm always sewing and always talking about sewing, so I thought I'd share some peeks of what I've been working on lately:

 These custom wolves are based off of a drawing that a girl sent me.

Custom owl cake toppers (that is the TINIEST bow I've ever made!)  :)

It's true that a lot of animals leave my house unphotographed.  These are just a couple of the lucky ones.  ;)  I hope your day is happy!  xoxo Katie

Feature Friday: Huckleberry Vintage

There are so many beautiful vintage shops on the internet, but one of my very favorites is Huckleberry Vintage.  The shop is packed with beautiful things and Miss Kala has me eaten up with serious hair envy! 

And some I'm sad I missed:

Kala has a really great blog where she posts outfit photos and other fun stuff.  I love outfit photos.

I hope your weekend is just super!  Mine is busy, busy-- jam packed with lots of fun things!  I'll be back on Saturday to announce the giveaway winner!  xoxo Katie
