Hello Blogland!! We are deep in getting prepared for Hurricane Sandy here in Western Maryland!!! I’m away from the coast but we are going to get TONS of rain and sustained tropical storm winds (30-40mph) for hours with gusts up to 70mph. I’ve put anything outside that could potentially fly in this wind away. We’ve got water, batteries and chips ready. I’ve been looking at the neighbor behind me and all the lovely crap on his deck and in his yard that will be in mine most likely after this is over.
I broke out one of my newly thrifted $1 maxi skirts today! Actually this outfit was what I intended to wear to church but I’ve had some sort of intestinal thing going on (TMI!!) and was loath to leave the house and the proximity of the porcelain altar for too long. I decided to trial run the outfit and take pix anyway. I decided to pair it with my black graphic floral cardigan, aka the cow sweater!!
I pulled out some red to pop the outfit. The cherry necklace I “made” from stuff I got at Hobby Lobby. They have a line in the jewelry making dept. that has components categorized by the decade they were popular in. They have retro inspired stuff by 20’s/30’s, 40’s/50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s. the cherry pendant was from the 40’s/50’s section. It was love at first sight. I added a chain and Wah-Lah–cute retro bling for under $5!!! I’m eyeing up the other era’s, too for inspiration! The earrings are vintage clip-ons I converted to pierced.
I’m going to be hooking up with Patti for Visible Monday and with the gals for Monday Mingle.
I’m not sure if there will be a Makeover Monday post as we may not have electricity at the height of the storm. I’m off to stare at weather maps and geek out. (I am a total weather weenie and spend far too much time on weather forums!!) Everyone who’s in the path of Sandy-be safe!! and for those on the west coast impacted by the earthquake in Canada–hope everything is well with you!!
