Ideal Day

Hello I know I haven't posted in a while I got distracted with projects and work and life in general :)

Let's talk about an ideal day, what does that look like for you? An ideal, fun day for me would be enjoying some art, shopping at a fun store like Anthropologie (especially when they are having a sale) and adding to my fabric stash. I did just that over my holiday break, here are some of the highlights.

 I first went to Anthropologie, hoping a little to find something but I rarely do. I found a cute top that wasn't on sale (but now it is!)

AND I found this cute warm sweater moto jacket ON SALE, that actually makes me look pretty good I think especially since I've gained some weight and tried moto jackets in the past that just didn't work with my figure. I love the sweater cuffs and lace lining in the back and functioning pockets
YAY!!!! Anthropologie victory :)

I went to see the highly anticipated "Faces of Impressionism" exhibit at the Kimbell Museum in Ft. Worth. It wasn't exactly what I thought it would be but I discovered a few new pieces that are new favorites.  From Renoir and Van Gogh

I love the main building the exterior concrete walls are so fun and the main sculpture that welcomes you into the museum makes me happy!!!

Thirdly, I went to Cabbage Rose an awesome fabric store close to the museum.
I found some great fat quarters in complementary colors for a new project I'm working on and of course some adorable soft flannel in lovely colors!!!

I started making a patchwork owl but then I got distracted with other things as always ;)

That's my ideal fun day......what about you?
