This is the Mermaid skirt I made Natalie for her birthday. She’s having a mermaid birthday party next weekend and so I’m going to give it to her that morning so she can wear it at her party. I’m very excited, I think she’s going to LOVE it. Currently, she wraps a blanket around her waist as a mermaid skirt, so this will be a nice replacement for that. It was a lot of work, since my serger hasn’t worked for quite awhile now and so there were a lot of French seams involved to prevent raveling, but I think it will be worth it.

There is a show on HGTV called Find Your Style and they help people who don’t quite know what their decorating style is. Anyway, they have a quiz online to find your own style and I took it for fun. My style is *sweet*. Here is what they said about it:

What’s sweet is chic. Nothing stark and modern for you! You’re drawn to cozy interiors and a welcoming palette (think soft, sun-bleached hues). You like your patterns whimsical and your buildings quaint. You enjoy heirlooms with sentimental value, like a rocker that once graced your grandmother’s nursery.
Other styles that suit you: English Country, Romantic, Cottage

I can honestly say that all of this is right on, except for the rocking chair part. I actually have my great-grandmother’s rocker in the house, but moved it out of Natalie’s room when it kept backing up and hitting the wall the more I rocked her in it as a baby and since every time she’d fall asleep, it would creak SO loud when I stood up, all my rocking was rendered worthless! I replaced it with a glider from a garage sale, which needed oiled often and then broke after Layla was born, so I’m determined to get a really nice one for this baby. WOW, that was a little rabbit trail there 🙂 Anyway, you can take the style quiz here. I’d love to know your results!

  1. I LOVE it, Pookie! It’s so cute & cool! Good job. I also enjoyed the rabbit trail about the Myer rocker 😀Well, I took the test and I’m Eccentric. Funky architecture, stuff collected from travels along with antiques. AND…one of the color combos was purple and gold! Wow, guess they got me.Mom
