Rambling Randomness

1. Last night Jon and I made a little trip to Ikea. I could literally spend hours in this store looking at everything. I could also spend a lot of money in this store, but I've been VERY good! Last night we went in search of fabric. There's actually a really good selection there and I was very impressed. I just bought a couple of practice pieces to play with until I get back into the hang of sewing again.

Here's what I found:
Now I can finally use the new sewing machine Jon got for me ;)
Perfect for a rainy day project!
(We have a lot of rainy days over here.)

2. Last night we also watched Gone Baby Gone.
It was a GREAT movie! I highly recommend it. I love Casey Affleck and Morgan Freeman, both. And any action movie based in Boston you bet I'll be buying.

Plot on IMDB:

"Two Boston area detectives investigate a little girl's kidnapping, which ultimately turns into a crisis both professionally and personally."

3. Question:

I'm looking for a new perfume, but I am SOOO picky for some reason. I am not a flowery scent kinda wearin' girl. Do you guys have any suggestions for me???

4. And Sadly, my big furry visitor Sampson left on Sunday! I was sad to see him go and actually got a little teary eyed when he left. BUT what made it better is I've got a new buddy hanging out with me during the days. His name is Elliot: isn't he a doll???

He is also a great dog like Sampson.
Ellie is so sweet, he loves cuddling.
He's either in my lap or at his other favorite spot on top of the couch.
It's so fun having him around!

I'm off to run errands! Hope you all have a happy Wednesday!

P.S. Be looking for our 200th post giveaway in a couple of days!

Cute fabric! I just got done doing that quilt. I wish I knew how to use a machine!

Try Classic by Abercrombie and Fitch. It's really great and isn't a floral scent at all.

Chanel Chanel chanel (preferably No 5. Mademoiselle or CHANCE!)... some find it too heavy in the summertime though. i also use Lacoste pink.

katie + bret said...

So what exactly are you going to do with that fabric?

I were Gucci's Envy Me perfume and really like it. Also I wear Coconut Lime Verbena body splash from bath & body works. It's real clean smelling and I enjoy it for summer time.

C said...

Love the fabric! Can't wait to see what you create!

Katie said...

oh IKEA, how I love you. Those are cute practice pieces! I really want a sewing machine, but I have NO idea how to use one...

and cute new furry friend!

Mrs. Realife said...

I want to learn how to sew so badly... I think it's because I have a real creative side and I feel like it would challenge me :)

I needed a good suggestion for a movie! Thanks!

Megan said...

I don't wear perfume so I can't help you there. I wish we had an ikea here!!

JG said...

I know you like Mary Kay - have you tried their newest perfume, Bella? It seems more fruity than flowery to me, and is very light. Also, I have slight perfume allergies (like, I can wear it, I just can't breathe through my nose if I do) and I have NO allergic reaction to Bella, so I'm a huge fan!

Jenny.Lee said...

I miss Ikea already. We really need one in Tulsa. Have you smelled the DKNY scents?

Rachael said...

I love my sewing machine! I hope you get to try some really fun stuff on yours, it looks like you've got some cute materials.

I like Sheer Japanese Cherry Blossom from Bath and Body Works. Or the regular Japanese Cherry Blossom or Black Amethyst. They're all under $30, too.

Brittany said...

I love IKEA!!!

And perfume... hmmm I use Curve and it isnt very flowery... same with Tommy girl!

Abbie said...

Wow, this post is right up my alley as I am a perfume addict!!! Seriously, I have like 25 bottles, it's ridiculous. Anyhow, my favorites are by Juicy. They have their regular Juicy scent and then their newest one, Viva La Juicy. Both are fantastic and not flowery or perfumey smelling at all! My next favorites are Ferragamo Incanto Shine, and Chanel Madamoiselle...the Ferragamo is light and a little more on the flower side, but I assure you smells great and the Madamoiselle is a bit more musky which is normally not my thing, but I adore it!

Gone Baby Gone...GREAT MOVIE!!!! I love those Affleck boys!!!

Shannon said...

I love Ralph Lauren Romance. It's not flowery at all!

Impulsive Addict said...

I don't like this creative side to you ONE BIT. *Only b/c it makes me jealous since I have not one single creative bone in my body*

Perfume: I love my JLo perfume and I also like Ralph Lauren..there's a couple of choices with that brand.

I've been missing reading you!! =)

ens24 said...

And i wear burberry brit or a Lacoste sport perfume.. not too flowery

lola said...

Is that one fabric red and orange? It has such a fun pattern and color!

morewineplease said...

Would you believe I have never been to IKEA!!

Hey, Kim was there, she is such a doll, it was so good to talk to her!

Lil' Woman said...

I heart Ikea, most of our furniture is from there.
Can't wait to see some of your sewing creations.
