Classy on Sunday // September Flora
Hello my dears!

It was so great to see all of your ecstatic comments on the A Pocket of Whimsy Giveaway post! That is really going to be so much fun to see who gets to win! We are in a pretty awesome season here on the BFS blog right now, and I’ll tell you why–we have a whole sidebar full of advertisers (Please check them all out!), next week we will be heading down to Linden Tennessee for the big Remembering WWII event (we hope to meet some of you there!), and we just feel really, really good about where the Lord has placed us at this point. All in all, these are blessings, and gracious gifts from the Lord. (Luke 11:9)

Giveaway with A Pocket of Whimsy!

Giveaway with a Pocket of Whimsy
Hello lovelies! Today we girls are SO thrilled to be hosting a giveaway for A Pocket of Whimsy! Some of you might remember that a few weeks ago we reviewed several products from this delightful shop, and were simply over-the-moon enthralled with them! Thus, we were so excited when Alexis agreed to do a giveaway this month, so that one of YOU can get the same whimsical experience that we girls had in receiving the products from her shop!

What I Made // eShakti to Me-Shakti

What I Made // eShakti to MeShakti
Hey all! Today I have a quick re-make that I put together a week or so ago that I am rather proud of, and wanted to share! If you remember from this post, we girls purchased 3 khaki dresses from eShakti about a year ago. Well, I have a story to tell about my dress that I didn't reveal in that post...

How I // Learned to Sew

How I // Learned to Sew
I have been making things; doo-hickeys, what-nots, and thing-a-ma-bobs, for as long as I can remember. When I was younger they were made from paper cups and pipe cleaners, wooden beads and scraps of fabric.Yes, these were the unsophisticated materials of the creations of my 5 year old self. One day, though, I wanted to make a doll. On the sewing machine. That didn't happen (my Mom ended up sewing it for me). Then I wanted to make clothes for my china dolls and my barbie dolls, and so did my sisters. So we got a book from the library and Mom helped us make some doll clothes. Those were glorious times, but I wanted to know more than Mom could teach me. So one day, after a bit of deliberation and discussion with Dad, Mom took me to my first ever sewing camp.

My world would never be the same.

Hello there!
Golly! It seems like an age has passed since you all voted which hair style was to be first, doesn't it? I hope you all did not forget about it! Haha! And just in case you didn't already know, the most votes went to the hairstyle worn on the High-Low Here We Go COS post a few weeks ago. Yippee! I cant wait to get started and show you how I did it! Let's begin.
