Now that things are rapidly greening up outside, I'm finding myself newly inspired by the hue - only a little deeper, a little darker - and it goes so well with some brass or gold thrown in for good measure.

I pinned this malachite lamp ages ago and I still love it.
The very best tactile clutch from Cold Picnic. I really want a clutch right now but with two children in tow, alas, ce n'est pas practique...

Thoughts of gardens, greenery and florals are starting to pop into my head, brought on and inspired by some recent pins:
a pair of silk embroidered Uzbek pillowcases: ebay
jacket by Cosmic Wonder Light Source
Balboa Botanical Gardens in San Diego: photo
17th Century floral wallpaper from a London house (take a look at all of the gorgeous specimens of wallpaper found as well as the assortment of objects the owner found under the floorboards while renovating - fascinating!)
What's been on my table lately:
Some wool/bamboo jersey (sublime) and little bits of Ultrasuede (remember Ultrasuede?) for a top (taking it easy on this one after last week's sewing frenzy).
The weeks are whizzing by now that school's been in for a month now. We went to the Moon Festival with beautiful lanterns hanging on the branches of trees nestled in a ravine where an urban creek flows. There was also much goofing around before and after swimming lessons (to which we are still wearing shorts and flip-flops for goodness' sake!). I even got some knitting done at the pool ( a new sweater pattern - yay). Hope you are finding ways to slow your weeks down. Fall is just too nice!
Next week is Elsie Marley's Kids Clothes Sewing Challenge and I'm getting pretty excited about going full tilt on the sewing machine along with hundreds of other moms out there. If you haven't joined in already, go do it! Just leave a comment on Meg's KCWC post and then you devote one hour a day next week to sewing some rad clothes for your little ones. Fun, right?
