While my teenage peers filpped the pages of Seventeen Magazine, I subscribed to Victoria.  As you can likely tell by the title, it was filled with all things vintage, heavy on the shabby chic.

Here's the part where I could take a tanget discussing my quirky atypical teenager interests, but I'll spare you the drama.

Back to the magazine.  I still remember the giddy feeling when receiving my monthly subscription.  In each  issue there was an article about bliss.  I still remember one particular winter inspiration which included dreamy whites with ice skating.  There was something so compelling about these articles.  Finding and creating beauty in life around you.

This is all leading somewhere, I promise.

I'm introducing a new blog feature which will appear at completely random, yet inspired, times.  Bliss will be an image/concept that is inspiring me at the moment.  So, stay tuned for the next installment.

Today's Bliss:

The women in my family are all incredibly talented with sewing.  While my mother fostered learning in this department for me, it always ended in some catastrophe.  That's right I have a sewing curse.

So, that doesn't explain the giddiness I feel in a fabric store.  All I can figure out is that I love fabric...and love someone else sewing it.

  1. Ahh! I was the same way!!!! I loved that magazine... and I'm bitten with the same curse -- love the fabrics, have oodles of ideas, but can't sew worth a lick. Can't wait to see your other entries for this:)
