March in Photos

March 2014 in Photos

March seemed like a bit of re-entry into real life after my trip.

★  #Selfie was played on what seemed like every radio station and I completely love it.  It makes me laugh every time I hear it.

★  I decided to go to the Dallas Quilt Show by myself this year.  I didn’t have any invites from the usual folks I go with, so I decided to go and had a great time.  I met up with a fellow blogger who’s recently moved back here and it was a treat to get to spend the day with her.  I completely fell in love with this quilt made from French linen.  So decadent!  I came home with the pattern and some of the fabric.  It seems like the perfect thing to commemorate my Paris trip.

★  It looks like Spring has come to North Texas – I love these “cotton ball” trees when they bloom.  I think they are actually Bradford Pear trees, but they look like cotton balls to me!

★  I’ve been really making some positive changes with regard to my eating since I got home.  Not only trying to eat healthier, but paying attention to eating food that is delicious.  The empanadas and tomato salad were delish!

★  Anne Rice announced a new book in the Vampire Chronicles set to be released in October, so I decided to go back to the beginning and reread Interview.

★  Britney’s Work Bitch has completely become my theme song.  Ready to get to work and get fit! And I even took a photo of my treadmill session to prove it!  Did lots of inclines that night.

★  Inspired by going to the quilt show, I got back to work on my Marcelle Medallion.  I’m choosing fabrics as I go and I’m loving the fact that you can tell how much I love bright saturated colors!

Things I Love Thursday

Been awhile since I’ve done a Things I Love Thursday post, so I thought I’d share some things that have been catching my eye lately.

I’m so in love with Sarah Jessica Parker. But after seeing this video, I may love her home more.

Gray Malin‘s photographs from Antarctica. I’ve been following him on Instagram and watching his snapshots from the shoot was just incredible.

I’ve been trying to catch up on some of my DVR’d shows, including The Carrie Diaries.  Saw this Elizabeth and James Raincloud sweater on a recent one and fell in love.

And today I stumbled on this amazing powder room redo…gasp…that wallpaper!!!!

Which, of course, reminded me that I recently ran across another fabulous wallpaper install on Instagram by 101 Things I Love.

So many lovely wallpaper options these days.

And finally – this song kills me every time I hear it.  #sofunny
