lately i've been obsessed with burdastyle and the free patterns available there. here are a few to reel you in...
i had one more photo/pattern link to post, but for some reason blogger wouldn't let me add another photo, but you can take a look at all the available free patterns at http://www.burdastyle.com. I love to look at the "finished projects" and see all the different variations and fabrics that people use. it's very inspiring.
another place that's been a huge inspiration for me lately is the craftster.org forums. I love to look through the reconstruction posts. it's amazing what people are making from, well.. everything! old clothes, curtains, tea towels/napkins, pillowcases, sheets.. it's just too awesome. i recommend taking a look through those posts before getting rid of the stuff you don't like, doesn't fit you, out of style, and will never wear. you might find a ton of things you can do with the things you already have, so that you have something new and amazing to wear. good luck!

after spending most of our weekend relaxing in this awesome hotel and doing some shopping, we came home and started working on the projects we've been wanting to tackle for a while now. we finally bought the things we needed to pretty up our tv area, some herbs for our empty pots and chairs for the patio.
here's the tv before. cords everywhere:
and after. much better:
we now have cilantro, cherry tomato, thyme, parsley, lavender, and mint.
both chairs and pots are from ikea.
