Hello Blogland!!! Happy Tuesday to everyone!! Wow has the weather drastically changed here in Western Maryland. It was 72 degrees yesterday afternoon and after the front went through it’s only 45 today!! Talk about schizo!!! that’s weather in Maryland–if you don’t like it, wait a minute and it will change!
Today is day 2 of the Fall Fashion Challenge. The color is wine and lucky for me I just thrifted a nice wine sweater!!! I love this color, no matter what the fashionista’s call it! Wine, merlot, oxblood, burgundy, whatever! My skirt started out life as an awesome vintage dress I thrifted. Unfortunately it had some sort of stain on the front color and bodice that would not come out. Probably had been there since the 70’s!!!
Here I am wearing the dress for Sheila’s cyber birthday party. I tried pinning these cool felt roses (more on these later)on the collar to cover the stains. I would’ve had to pin a forest on my chest to cover all of the stains. It would’ve looked like I was growing some kind of weird burgundy boob barnacles!
So a little snip snip at the waist-which was already elastic-and WAH-LAH!! New skirt!!
The felt flowers came from the scrapbook embellishments aisle at Joanns. They come 4 to a package for about $3 without a coupon. I just took the sticky tab off the back and pin them on. They come in several colors-I need to get some more!!
I made my necklace from an acrylic tag and a copy of my great-grandmother Annie taken in 1907 when she was 18 years old!! I love her sassy look and big hat!
Here’s the finished red-roofed cottages all snowed-up and glittered and ready for the kitchen tree!! I’m brushing glitter off of everything-including Kae!!
I’m hooking up with Lakota for Tah-Dah Tuesday !!!!! I’m off to spend some quality time with Mark Harmon and work on some crocheting!
Have a great evening!!
