designs to love

I read somewhere this week about how many people think of quilts as something that belong in their grandmother's house. Personally, I love quilts. I think that quilting is a dying art (and ironically I am the only one of my sister's who has yet to take it up). Besides which, even a log cabin or patchwork quilt can be made to look modern with the right fabrics. Here are some quilts that nobody could associate with their grandmother.

a little bit of random

Last week I tried Haagen Dazs' raspberry sorbet. It was amazing. Since we Texans will still be hovering around 90 I think this weekend calls for some more sorbet.

It is Thursday and I am doing my first post for the week. I blame the internet router. I found these ghost dresses on my Aunt's pinterest board. I love them. Halloween is coming!
