The One Where My Husband Looks Naked

[But don't worry, he's not]

Ummm can anyone tell me when the calendar turned to September? Because I swear it was just June. But I'm happy for September because it means fall is right around the corner, and after this ridiculously hot summer, I'm really for the cool days of autumn to find us. We got a taste of fall last week - the temperature dropped and everyone in Nashville breathed a sigh of sweet relief. And then we were back at 90 degrees and it was like summer never left.

It does cool down at night, which is good news for my poor tomato plants because they are starting to blossom more and the flowers are actually sticking around this time. I'm hoping my plants turn out to be late bloomers and we can soon enjoy of the fruits of my [dad's] labor.

Labor Day {like that segue?} weekend brought the six year anniversary of the first show Curt & I played together (and we also met that week, so that's special too). He kicked me out of the band, but I think I got a good consolation. I mean look how cute he is:

Curt's hair was in poor shape so I cut it on a sunny day. But like most sunny days lately, just as I was finishing up, the sky opened up and the rain poured down. Instead of wasting shower water, I got him some shampoo and told him to rinse off outside. Rain water makes your hair nice and soft, right?

Between hair cuts (I've been chopping away at mine too - layers, bangs, more bangs, more layers, you get the idea..) I've been trying to sneak in some crafty projects. For your consideration:

Some ruffly towels. I'm in love with ruffles right now and thought my kitchen could benefit from some little frills. I found these towels at Target on clearance and loved the mustard yellow color - I need to get back and see if I can scrounge up some more.

I love the way this towel turned out - but after I washed it, the ruffles sort of collapsed on themselves, so on my next try, I sewed the ruffles down on the top & bottom, closer to the edges to try & maintain the ruffly goodness.

Same yellow towel, different ruffle. I added this great Anna Maria Horner fabric to the bottom and then top stitched the red stripe on top.

I like this style too, I think it might be more user-friendly, but I don't think it's as cute as the other one. Maybe it seems too church lady to me? But I think cute, modern fabric can remedy that. 

What do you think? Which style is your favorite? Would you love to spruce up your kitchen with such frilly goodness?

I have been trying to stash bust, so I finally cut into my Denyse Schmidt home decor fabric to make some pillows.

Because I couldn't bare to cut it into any smaller pieces than that. 

They look great in my newly autumnally-decorated living room. 

But when does Denyse Schmidt fabric not look great?! 

So now, if you will just bear with me, it may be another long wait before I update again because I am working on opening an online shop. Yes, that's right. After lots of nagging and encouraging from family and friends, I'm really going to give it a try. My goal is to have it ready by the end of the month. I've been a busy bee making things so I have a good inventory to start. If you have suggestions or ideas for me, I'd love to hear what you'd like to see in my shop (like those towels up there?) so comment away and share your opinions, I can't wait to read them!
