I had a sweet surprise yesterday.  My friend, Tricia, whom I've known for several years now dropped by.  Our girls have played volleyball together, currently go to highschool together and Trish and I have been in Bible study together on many occassions.  She saw this book and thought of me.  I love that!

The author, Erin McKean, has a blog called A Dress A Day where she chronicles her love of vintage clothing and patterns.  She began writing a series of posts which became the makings of the book.  It looks to be a very fun read.  Thanks Tricia!

With joy,


  1. This looks like a beautiful book to have! How sweet of your friend to think of you.

    Have a sweet day,

  2. I'm going to put this one on my reading list for sure * thanks for sharing :)


  3. What a great book! I love vintage clothing and the great combinations of pattern, color and details. I sometimes think I would like to start wearing more dresses every day rather than the same old jeans! Especially when it's warm out:>)
