february is a busy month.

homemade lotion.
homemade lotion.
reds + pinks
donuts.

It's been quiet here lately, but I've been busy at work. I'm working on two historical dresses this month that will be worn by conference speakers for this conference. I'm about to put the finishing touches on the first gown, then I will dive into the second gown. I get a little stressed when I have such a tight deadline. But I did make time for some lotion-making and donut-making. :) And what's this? The weekend already? Where has the time gone?? I'm going to work really hard to finish this dress today and then this afternoon I'm goin' sledding! Finally! Haven't gone yet this year and I'm itching to go. And look...it's snowing again!

Happy weekend and if I'm not back here before next week, have a delightful Valentine's Day, even if you don't celebrate it. It's always fun to eat candy, right? xoxo

Good luck with the dresses, Anna; I'm sure they'll come out beautifully!

P.s. Those donuts look so scrumptious... mind if I come over? :)

the dresses sound like they'll be amazing and what a fun project for a snowy winter day. Love the doughnuts, I've never made my own! Maybe its time to try....

Great photos. They really convey your feelings. I thoroughly enjoy your blog, and see that you like linnet and mina perhonen. The m.p. shop in Tokyo is stunning! (I am a transplant from the tall corn state--your blog is a touch of home?)

your doughnuts are inspiring me. i've got a yummy looking doughnut recipe too and i am hoping to make it soon. i inherited small tin doughnut rounds to make them in. sound like this will be a very busy month for you.

hi everyone! thank you for all your lovely comments. :) i will share pictures of the dress, however, since it's for a conference and all the dresses are kept a secret, i'll have to wait until after the conference. i'm working on the second dress now. :)
