Friday Fun's Friday! And, what a week it's been.

I love the sketches, above, from Oscar de la Renta.....showing that you have to start with a rough idea and tweak it and move things around before you end up with a moment like the one below.
Oscar de la Renta finale

Just a reminder that some of the best moments in life are worth waiting for! What's waiting for you this weekend?

I will be waiting for my dear husband to join me as he will be waiting for our lawn team to sow some seed and try to get a head start on grass growing where there has been mud and dirt. I guess all we can do is plant the seed and imagine a lush bed of verdant green!
I adore fashion sketches and creating things that are worth waiting for. I am just not so skilled in the patience department. I am more of an "instant gratification" type of gal:)

Very cool post. Love the message behind it too. Hmmm... no plans yet for the weekend but sometimes those make for the very best weekends. I hope yours is wonderful, Elizabeth, and that you make some time to relax!! xo

Hopefully a relaxing weekend! I am craving a weekend with very little I HAVE to do and think I am getting it...yay!! Oscar De La Renta makes the most beautiful clothes, how exciting it must be to start with a single sketch and see his magnficient vision come to life.

Crazy week over here too. But in 30minutes I will be packing my weekend bag for a little "secret" getaway (all arranged by Hubby!).
Quite excited over here!

I love Oscar's designs just shame I have no where to wear one of his stunning gowns. As for my weekend I would be happy to finish painting an inside door but it's raining on top of our snow and Dylan dog is inside. He's hairy and I don't want my door hairy too!!

Enjoy your weekend Elizabeth!

Oscar de la Renta designs are always beautiful. He seems to really "get" women. I have some Bob Mackie sketches that he did in my phone book many years ago when we were with Cher, Dolly and Carol. I love them.
As for the weekend, I'm tending my roses a bit and then doing housekeeping chores and hopefully getting in some time for reading. I am missing Downton Abbey and looking forward to it's return.
Have a lovely weekend, Elizabeth!

I so LOVED this post.
Oscar de la Renta is one of my favorite designers. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising and I did as many papers on him as I could.
I also have some goals that i want to complete and this is a great reminder to "start somewhere".

Thanks for a great post!
