Friday faves

My last Friday faves before crossing the pond. I leave tomorrow! The plane ride will be long, but well worth it. Here are some of this week's faves to keep you entertained.

I think I found my birthday cake for next year. This sewing machine cake is beyond amazing. And all the notions really completed the cake.

I found a new blog that I'm totally loving! Check out Cassie Stephens. She posts her awesome DIYs and daily wears. I can't get enough of her awesome vintage-inspired style.

After finally finding the PUL this weekend at my fabric store (and after various puzzled looks from the store  staff), I think I need a project that involves PUL.  These little lunch bags are so cute and I think I need a new lunch bag anyways.

Check out this free download loaded up with tons of printables. I love the retro look of this set, and I'm sure I'll be using some of these in my vacation scrapbook.

These cupcakes are just too cute not to share. They would be awesome for a birthday or even a beach party.

This easy way to dress up your pillow looks super easy and super cute.

picture from Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing
Gertie has a new pattern line with Butterick. I love Gertie's retro designs, so I can't wait to get one of these patterns and whip myself up a wiggle dress.

I loved Danielle's post on being out on the open road. I totally agree that sometimes you just gotta get in the car put on some tunes and just disconnect.

And that's it for now. I hope to schedule a post, so you will have something to read this week, and then get ready for the HUGE picture posts when I get back. Au revior!
