I can see this scenario in Ina's home. Jeffrey says, "Hon, I have a hole in my sock! Can you darn it for me?" Ina walks over, grabs the sock in her hand that doesn't have a fabulous martini (or sidecar, or Manhattan) in it, pitches the sock in the trash and says, "Darn!"
And that is ok, because Ina can do that, and to be quite honest, I am not going to darn my husband's socks either. But, I do know that Ina has her fabulous tunics made by a tailor from the pattern of a tunic that she loves. I can not afford that luxury, and in case you haven't figured it out yet, I am a pretty creative gal. So, my answer to this is going to be sewing my own clothes. There are a few pieces of clothing that I just LOVE! A good maxi dress, jersey skirts, and t-shirts that are long enough (a constant struggle ALL my life, and I am only 5'6").
I have already done a few simple sewing projects, and I will post the details on those soon. There is even a cute upcycle project that I did turning a man's sweater in to a sleeveless v-neck sweater for my son, and a pair of pajama pants for my son.
More on all of this coming soon. I must warn you that the pictures for these projects aren't great, because I wasn't planning to blog about them. Also, I am considering a name change for the blog, as I see it headed in a different direction now. But more on that later. Can't wait to show you all the things I have been working on.
On the food side, I did make a FABULOUS osso bucco for Valentine's but alas, no pictures.
I will get better, I promise.
