Olga Vilshenko‘s namesake collection, influenced by her Russian heritage, is a refreshing approach to the bohemian dress. We’re just smitten with all the by Russian folk patterns and traditional floral embroidery that adorn midi suede skirts, high waisted crepe pants, and floor skimming silk dresses. Paired with sleek culottes and simple silhouetted peasant tops, it all feels wonderfully modern.
You certainly won’t find Giulia Bernardelli crying over spilt coffee. The Italian artist paints intricate scenes and portraits with her morning cups of joe, ice cream, honey, wine . . . really, just about anything. Just check out her Instagram and be wowed by the things she’s able to create with food. Amazing!
Many great moments have been spent on a porch. It is a great place for family and friends to pass the time and the perfect place to watch the world slow down.
I’ve had instructions on how-to-sew-rope-bowls saved to my Pinterest “to do” board for awhile now. A few weekends ago, I finally got around to making a few delightful baskets that were surprisingly easy to make. However, they sat on my craft table for over a week, just waiting for me to do something with them. You should know that I have one too many little bowls around the house, each hoarding way too many chotskies and trinkets. Ask my husband. It drives him crazy. So what would be more useful to me? Something that I can productively use? A tote bag, of course! Why make something if you can’t wear it! Don’t be intimated. If you can sew a straight line on a sewing machine, I promise you can skillfully master this project.
