Merry Christmas to me!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Time for a little catch-up! I have been back at home since Wednesday afternoon and have been procrastinating taking photos. It is really hard to find good natural light here at home, so it's hard to find a good place to photograph things. I'm so spoiled by my apartment, it's so light and bright! I finally bit the bullet and managed to get a few shots. My order from Sew, Mama, Sew! came yesterday. The fabrics are beautiful. I was very happy to find fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party line on clearance! They are much prettier in person! I also picked this very floral Robert Kaufman print. I didn't realize it until I looked it up again on their website, but it was inspired by Liberty of London. That's about as close as I'm gonna get! We'll see how long it takes for me to cut into these beauties, I tend to hoard fabrics that I love.

Any project suggestions for these prints? :)

Sheets, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I have been picking up a few vintage sheets lately, hoping to make some sort of patchwork with them. These two I found in the last week for $2 each. They are currently soaking (along with the set in the next photo) in the laundry sink with some oxiclean. I have used it on a few old things and it really seems to brighten them up a bit. We'll see!

George, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Can't hardly go a post without posting a photo of George. He doesn't really like being at home. It doesn't look or smell anything like my apartment. Plus there are two kitties here. He can definitely tell! He's not doing too bad though, just sleeping in his box and eating little treats of banana, his favorite food.

Bobbie, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Our one cat, Bobbie has been sleeping in this clear plastic storage container. It is way too small for her! It looks so uncomfortable. Knowing her though, she's just showing off.

I noticed the other day that I don't take very many horizontal oriented shots. I shoot mainly vertical shots. So, I am going to try and challenge myself this next year to take more of a balance of the two. I succeeded today at least! :)

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!
