My July Round-Up
Here's my monthly round-up of everything that I'm loving lately! This post does not contain affiliate links.
Sky Cabin Quilt
When I saw this quilt, my jaw actually dropped. The colors, the shapes, the vibe! I love everything about it. It has definitely made its way to the top of my "To Make" list. If you love it too and aren't a quilter, you can inquire about a commission here.
Indian Block Print Fabric
I can't get this fabric out of my head. I see it everywhere, from pillows to lampshades, to bedspreads. A local popup shop in Seattle, Casa di LaValle, has a curated collection of block print pillows and whole cloth Kantha quilts. They're all stunning and I want them all!
My husband and I tied the knot in April and we are so lucky to have such generous friends and family. Our friends Mathew and Karly gifted us this stunning bowl. It's the Large bowl in White. It will definitely be a piece I'll have forever! It arrived this month and I can't wait to decorate with it.
I am not a dress-loving person and I want to change that! When I was about 12 years old, I visited an orthopedic doctor for my Osgood-Schlatter disease. It's known for the large boney bump below the kneecap. He told me, "Well, you'll never be a model." It was an inappropriate and unnecessary comment and it's sad to say that stuck with me and made me hate my legs. Long dresses are what I feel comfortable in at the moment so I picked up this Target dress the other day. The pattern and color is even more beautiful in person! It runs slightly larger and longer as well and hits right above the ankle on me. I wear a Medium and am 5 ft 6 inches.
Now that it's actually sunny when I get up in the morning, I love to whip out my yoga mat and do stretching and a short yoga practice. My wrist is very sensitive from years of slamming it on the wall from my competitive swimming days (breaststroke turns, amiright?) so I need to have a very cushioned mat when I exercise. I absolutely love this mat and won't ever go back to the cheap and thin plastic ones!
