Burda Style…

I am totally in love with the new spring/ summer patterns on Burda Style. To be honest this is one of my favorite sewing and fashion sites. Burda Style also has lots of awesome give-aways.





So Awesome…

Spring Fabrics….

30 01 2011

The weather has been so lovely this weekend and I couldn’t help but start daydreaming about spring clothing. While looking for some fabric choices for the Spring Palette Challenge I found some sweet fabrics I wanted to share. I spent hours on Purl Soho’s site just dreaming about all the things I could make with their selections of fabrics, ribbons, patterns, felt bundles (which make me go weak in the knees) and so much more. This site diffidently  makes me want to run out and learn how to knit this minute. Their knitting selection is amazing and I love their patterns, especially this one! Here is just a taste of their amazing fabric:

Remember before you shop online try to buy from a local business.  Two of our favorite fabric shops are Mulberry Silks (they have all designers Purl has) and Thimble Pleasures (wonderful cottons).

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Love, Rebecca





Love is in the Air…

Happy Friday! I love Friday so much ever since I was a little kid. I wanted to share some of my favorite things today…

This would make a wonderful gift, “I LOVE YOU BEST” antique tablespoon from Hammerman on Etsy.

I am totally  in love with Drucilla’s blog and her Etsy shop Drucillapettibone. I love her hand embroidered animal prints and her butterfly wing pendant.

These superhero shoes from Smallfly would be perfect with the superhero cape I’m making Jett for Valentine’s Day:)

This fox necklace from Odette New York is so sweet.

Vintage Valentines (come see some amazing ones at our store).

Crocheted hearts by Kara.

Handmade Valentine’s Cards. Of course Martha Stewart has a million ideas.

Francois the Accordion Playing Cat would make any sofa more comfy.

What are some things you are loving this week?

Have a wonderful weekend. And remember national pie day is Sunday!

Love, Rebecca





Some fun blogs…

12 01 2011

The start of a new year always fills the blog world with great challenges. I have totally been following Veronica Darling, a super fun blog from Australia. She loves sewing and creating things. She deals mostly with vintage patterns and thrifted material. When I first found her blog she was making 100 outfits in one year!

Super cute blogger, Veronica Darling

Well her blog just led me to another fun blog where she will be contributing. The blog Sew Weekly challenges people to make weekly creations. The author, Mena explains, “The Sew Weekly documents my attempts to sew all my own clothes. In 2011, a large mission of the site is to get more folks involved in sewing and provide a community to share the results.” Ever since I have found this blog I have had some much fun going thru her archives. Last year she challenged herself to make a dress a week (sometimes she made skirt and shirt or pants and shirt). Check out her complete wardrobe from 2010, it is amazing!

One of my favorite dresses!

Now Sew Weekly has a great theme for this week, I Should Coco. Inspired by Coco Channel. She has so much great information about Coco Channel and I am totally in love with her creation for this week.

What do you guys think of Sew Weekly and Veronica Darling? What are some of your favorite blogs?

PS Check out my blog post about Wee Wonderfuls on my personal blog and have a great day!

Love, Rebecca

I love this black knit dress that is shot with gold thread. Its perfect for a holiday party. Fun without being too dressy. It would also look cute with a pair of boots for a night out with friends.  $35

I Heart Mondays!

15 11 2010

Hey Y’all,

Happy Monday! Roulette had a little make-over over this week.  New artwork by Thomas Dean, lots of warm coats, and a whole table of wool-y accessories for the changing weather!  Stop by and have a look…and while you are here, check out what I Heart most about this Monday…

Brilliant’s new crocheted, fishnet fingerless gloves! They are so cute; and luckily, I got a pair for my birthday!  They range in colors from black to beige to red and yarns of cotton or extra-soft bamboo, but they are always detailed with vintage buttons.  Glam with a touch of grunge (as the artist perfectly describes them)!
You can check out Brilliant’s blog here

Love them!

Me
