My Favorite Things for July

july

I am very excited about this very random post of my favorites things for July!  Dabbling in a little bit of everything, these five faves will (at least in my opinion) help make your July just a little bit better!

Let’s get started!

Number 1: A Small Iron by Prym

Now, this is not a new invention as I know many quilters use this little iron all the time.  However, it wasn’t until I was struggling trying to get my large iron into some pretty tricky parts of a bodice, that I realized I needed something smaller.  A great price and great little addition to anyone’s sewing room!

Number 2: Lush Bath Bomb

I don’t have baths often, but when my husband brought home a little gift from the Lush store, I fell in love with this delightful smelling bath bomb!  A great way to unwind after a busy day in the garden.

Number 3: Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati

This is not a new series to me, however it is one that I love to reread ever so often.  In an epic scale, similar to the Outlander Series, the Into the Wilderness series by Sara Donati is a fantastic historical read!

Number 4: 1920’s Layered Dress

I love the layered look of this blue 1920’s summer dress…so much so that I am working on creating a little capelet inspired by all those airy layers!

Number 5: Calamity Jane staring Doris Day

About a week or so ago, Turner Classic Movie played Calamity Jane staring Doris Day and Howard Keel.  While historically it is about as accurate as a Ford Focus driving down the streets of Deadwood, it is SO MUCH FUN!!  I high recommend this for an upbeat summer movie night.

Enjoy!
