dear mae,

my mind has been spinning about little projects to do for my new bicycle, and i think it needs some saddle bags.  something to tote along a picnic lunch, or bring home some groceries from the market, and i got to thinking about what kind of fabric i need.  something water resistant, something durable, and something that won’t clash with the retro stylings of my new friend.  there is really only one simple answer to this quest.

oilcloth! it is all of these things and more!

now, this is how my brain works, after spending about 5 minutes looking for a local retailer, i want to buy 100 rolls of all of the different patterns for all of my sewing projects:  tablecloths, tote bags, wallets, archery target covers….

gosh, the possibilities are unlimited!!

is this the start of some new obsession of mine that will last a few months and lead to a dusty pile of vinyl in the bottom of a closet? or is this true love? only time will tell dear friend.

hey mae!

i finally got around to putting some stuff on my esty account! i spent all day yesterday stitching up some tote bags from some fabric i had laying around the house, with the hope that someone out there has the same quirky sense of style that i live for!  i’m sure there will be more to come soon, but this is what is there right now!

at the risk of sounding like a complete and utter dork, i love summer in america.  as i am typing this right now i can hear a lawn mower in the distance, and with the windows open, the smell of fresh cut grass comes wafting into my apartment like hurricane winds.  baseball season has started, and barbecue grills and bonfires light up the night sky.  It’s time to break out all of my favorite summer time iced tea pitchers and pack an extra dose of the red, white and blues into my home decorating and into my wardrobe! even my fair florence is ready to sail the summer seas! 

 so tie a red ribbon in your hair, give a little nod to the nautical, and enjoy your summer!

❤ betty
