If you don’t already know, the bold, vibrant, joyful and stunning colors used in all of Jennifer’s lines are a tribute to her time growing up in the Caribbean. That’s right, Jennifer grew up in St. Croix! How cool is that?! Bold colors are popping up all over the place these days and we want to share with you some of our favorites!

Introducing the Tobago the wonderful mate to the Tortola dress/top which is only available in the bundle for now until October. That bundle is a show stopper and you get quite the value!!!!! Join the Road Trip Pattern club…They are on the Third week of delivery s! Check it out here.
Folks are loving the bundle and while you were busy doing that, Our Girl Carla was in the Scientific Seamstress lab whipping up the companion aptly named Tobago because she knows you all go cray cray for the mother daughter patterns.

I’ve neglected my blog and the work is piling up!! Please forgive me. I devote so much time to sewing these days and I really need to get on the stick? ..off the stick? and why a stick? Anywho I miss you all and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest project I did this summer …I mean we. Katies boyfriend Berto painted the dresser below with Annie Sloans Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint, forget the paint, that name sends me to the moon!!! I knew I had to have it and yes pricey for a pint but I still have a 1/2 a can left!!! This woman is brilliant, her colors are fabulous and the videos and tips on various sites and youtube make the whole thing go quite quickly. I want to paint everything this color just so I can say Napoleonic Blue..feels so noble..Royal!! So take a look and tell her I sent you. Not that she’ll care or even know who I am….So inhale this beautiful dresser if you like.. The knobs are from Anthropologie but a little to transparant..not showing up..so I painted the back white so no light could shine through and now they pop!!! So I promise from here on forward not to neglect my Blog duties but please say you’ll keep coming..xoxoxo Oh and sweet boy George was such a big help!
PS this has nothing to do with chalkboard paint..
This shoot started with Thunder cracking and lightening bolts and everyone in the kitchen at 7am in case a tree decided to fall on the house…Poor George was shaking like a leaf..I wondered what God had in store and how we would pull it off but I just had to trust. I see now as always a need for faith in all things. Dreamy photos by a brilliant photographer and stylist. Tim Geaney and Madeline Rhodes collaborated on some sensational photos.
