I"m On Facebook!

Hey everyone!
I feel so cool now. I finally made a Facebook page. Isn't that so awesome? So if you become a fan you can find out about the cool new things I have made and what I'm up to!
It's what all the popular people are doing. So why aren't you?


I scoured Anthropologie. . .

I got to thinking, what if someone out there wants to buy me a really expensive gift? I should let them know what I want. Here it is. I splurged too, didn't even look at the sale items!
I know, I know, I shouldn't have. But I did it just for you. You can thank me later.


Anthropologie Weave the Ring Skirt

Does anyone else have this skirt?
I have worn it in the summer, but I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions for wearing in colder weather. It's so cute! I'm thinking maybe some brown boots. But then would that look too Laura Ingalls Wilder-ish? Any suggestions would be great! I'm gonna try some stuff on with it and experiment. We shall see how it goes. . .
I love how the model looks in this picture though. However, I don't think I could pull it off. Besides the fact that I don't have a button up shirt like that, or shoes like that!


Felt Needle Book

I keep stealing my mom's needle book, and she keeps asking for it back! So I decided to fix the problem and make my own. I was inspired by a tag from one of my cardigans, it's Element. This is what I came up with:

Check out my Etsy shop soon. I'm going to add it!

I'm updating my Etsy shop! Check it out- The Orange Dahlia.
Here are a couple samples of what I just posted:

And check out my clips! I make them with 100% eco friendly felt. Perfect for the little girl in your life. My model, Simone, is 5 and loves them because the felt makes them soft so they don't hurt her while she is playing at school. I have many other designs as well. If you don't see exactly what you want, contact me and we will see what we can do.



Anthropologie A Fine Fete Necklace

I was looking on Anthropologies website at the necklaces and I came accross this one-

So, I figured I could totally make it. And I did! Here is the finished product.

I used some leather I had from one of my purses that broke. Then I just painted them, put some holes and and strung them on an old chain. I decided to keep it simple, so I left out the ribbon. But it would be super easy to add if I ever change my mind. I saved $68!
