All the Pretty Colors

Hi everyone! I'm in Northern California today, heading out to the Maker Faire in San Mateo! It's my first time attending this event, and I'm so excited. Before you wonder, no, I'm not a "maker." (Unless you count the "making" of outfits and blog posts. ^_-) However, I've always loved the idea of tinkering and when I was a kid, whenever one of my younger siblings (I'm the oldest of 4, spread over a range of 12 years) got a new ride-on or bike or other needs-to-be-assembled sort of product, I always volunteered to put it together. That's not the same thing at all as what the people at Maker Faire will be doing, of course, but I think it gets at a deep-seated interest in using my hands (at least on smaller projects) and knowing how things work.

Anyway, in case you're looking for a "pretty"-fix, I have these lovely fabric print/textile swatches I snapped photos of, to share:

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh pretty! I love those kinds of fairs- seeing the pieces in person and meeting the maker is so fun! Oh my- how sad life would be without these beautiful prints.

    I'm such a sucker for watercolour florals- I love the alice + olivia shift!

  2. I only have a couple of Tracey Reese pieces, but I LOVE THEM, such pretty fabrics! Wish I could get my grabby hands on them ;)

  3. Wow. Great colors. I think orange and pink make a great combo.
