Happy Friday + Randomness

April 28, 2017   /   bysanae  / Categories :  Feeds

Happy Friday! I picked up these fetching ranunculus blooms at Trader Joe’s yesterday, and it really is about the small things that brighten our days, isn’t it? Pink flowers in general uplift me, but these delicately layered petals are mood-boosters on steroids. It was fun to play around with my camera and photo editing…I haven’t been doing much of that.

Instead, I’ve been spring cleaning like a fiend now that I’ve completed a couple of deadlines — the dining room table’s been looking like a crime scene. And that’s currently the least offensive part of the house. My next big book deadline is at the end of May, so I’m taking advantage of these few glorious carefree hours this week to restore order to my workspace and home before I trash it all again. It’s the never ending and oddly comfortable and predictable cycle.

Gah, these flowers are so gorgeous. If reincarnation is actually a thing, I’d like to come back as blush-pink ranunculus. I wonder how it feels to be that beautiful? And who knew that $4.99 could bring so much joy? Anyway, I hope these photos brighten your day too! I’ll be back next week with more substantial content (maybe. maybe not. now that I think about it, I’m not sure that I’ve ever created substantial content).

Have a refreshing and lovely weekend, all!

What brightens your day?
It really doesn’t take much

Slue Foot Sue’s Golden Horseshoe

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Disneybound event put together by Dole Whip Dame. The theme? Disneyland itself! Attendees were encouraged to bound as attractions, restaurants, shops, and shows. Now the concept isn’t new to me, as I bounded as the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor last spring. This time I […]

Second take on V1525: A red Rebecca Vallance pant suit!

EN Summary: I decided to make myself another Rebecca Vallance pant suit for summer (click here for the first version) and this time around I opted for a fabric which I believe is closer to the original model in color and drape. Keep reading the sewing review (or hop over here to see more photos of me wearing this suit).
PT Sumário: Decidi fazer outro conjunto top e calça Rebecca Vallance para o verão (podem ver a primeira versão aqui) e desta vez optei por um tecido mais parecido com o original, tanto na cor como no cair.

Pollyanna

I have been accused, more than a few times in my life, of being overly optimistic. You wouldn’t think that such a thing could be a negative, but it works against me from time to time, as I persist (usually … Continue reading
