The hubbs and I have decided to go on a vacation this summer (an early anniversary trip). With the exception of our trip to Jackpot, NV (which was fun, but not much of a real vacation), we haven't been anywhere since our honeymoon.

We looked around for cheap options here and found that it was actually cheaper for us to go to Vegas, so off we go!!

I think we've finally decided where we're going to stay: the Golden Nugget.

It looks pretty darn awesome (Hello? 3 story water slide through a SHARK TANK???) and it's going to be like $50 a night for a 4 star hotel. Plus, we get a coupon book! Woohoo! :)

Seriously though. Waterslide through a SHARK TANK. Do I really need to say more? :P We can't wait!!

Felt Dollhouse!

I *finally* finished the dollhouse for the little girl I nanny for. Only 6 months late! *grins*

And in case I haven't mentioned, it was based off of this tutorial. I just handstitched all of mine out of felt. I think I may have lost my mind!

Kitchen in progress (the handles aren't really that wonky. They're buttonhole stitches, so they stand out from the fridge and stove!)

Dining room in progress:

Living room in progress:

Side/back view:

All opened up:

Closeup: Vintage button

Closeup: Front of the house:

Closeup: Another vintage button (aren't they the cutest???) and little birdies on the side of the house

Another front of the house shot (but look! mushrooms!):

So,'s finished! I'm sure the neighbors loved watching me laying and crawling in the front yard to get pictures. What can I say? I am my father's child (he's also known for doing such things!)

New table!

We have a REAL grown up dining table now! No more director's chairs!

Isn't it cute? Nice and solid and only $75! (there is a 4th chair too, it was just in the repair shop). I've got the chairs and she's dropping the 4th chair and the table by later. Woohoo! :)

Photo meme: Sewing room!

A friend asked for pictures of my sewing room for the photo meme, so....

Here's the sewing room currently:

Looking in from the door:

Turning to the left, my chair and the closet:

Still need to put the doors back on the closet:

Facing the door (from where the chair is):

Aaaand my machine and sewing table:

Please excuse the boxes. I'm not quite finished with my chair, and I've just been storing pieces willy nilly in those boxes.
