A little spring color

I had a whirlwind of errand running this morning. I grabbed my camera hoping to take some blog worthy pics... since I have posted very little in the way of inspiring photos since the beginning of the year. I'm in love with the Oh Joy! blog. It is full of color and beautiful pictures and ideas... not that I want to copy what she has there, but I would at least like to contribute in a similar fashion.
However, upon arriving at IKEA which was full of their new fabric collections and spring/summer merchandise, I realized that my battery had died. There was no way of even fooling said camera into taking one picture of their glorious fabrics hanging in space. So I will have to post these images from their website....

So I returned home in a fit of color inspiration. Last week Miss E and I had purchased some new grosgrain ribbon for belts. So we put them together on this grey afternoon... right before the hail and rain.

I love all the grosgrain stripes that are available now. About 4 years ago, these belts made a huge comeback at retail, but there was very little choice for the home sewer or even the internet shopper. So I wound up using a rainbow stripe for a 2 year old Miss E, who was perfectly happy with it... but these stripe combos are waaaaaaaay better.

She's a well accessorized little lady.
