Hello Blogland!!! Happy Easter from cold, rainy Maryland!! I didn’t even put a fancy dress on the Diva but left her in a sweater!
This has been a busy weekend–I hope to catch up with everyone’s blogs later this evening. I’ve got a ham in the oven and baked beans in the crock-pot smelling really good! We have a friend coming over to dinner with any other strays he might bring along that have nowhere to go.
Friday was a short work day and afterwards the hubster and I headed to The Temple Paul Mitchell School for haircuts. We have a dear friend, Teresa, who is studying there. Below is shaggy me pre-haircut:
Saturday evening we met up with my family for dinner. I took the picture on the front porch. I’m sporting my fab new ‘do!!! Everyone loves it (the hubster’s haircut was awesome but he doesn’t want a picture on the blog-LOLOL) and several people think I highlighted my hair deliberately like this as opposed to just growing the dyed part out!
My Easter outfit caused quite a sensation at church today!! Compliments everywhere–several said it was so different from what I usually wear but FABULOUS!! The hubster said I looked like a luscious watermelon-I’m not sure what THATS supposed to men!!! The dress is FashionBug and came from the mission for $4!!! I kept the accessories to a minimum as the print is fairly busy. I’m going to definitely draft a pattern from this to make more!!
Here’s a close-up of the new shoes!! They are by Chaps and from Kohl’s. They were marked down 60% to $28. I had a gift card for a bit over $15 on it. I’ve needed a dressier black shoe and they were cute and comfy so I decided to get them. When I got to the register they gave me a scratch off ticket that came up an additional 30% off!! I was able to get these for under $20!! Note I’m wearing fishnet tight, too!
I want to share some more lovely 1940’s vintage Easter Cards. The soft watercolor effects and the images are so sweet.
I’ll be linking up with the glorious ladies’ for Visible Monday!!! I’m off to try to catch up with everyone before dinner!!
I’ll be back Tuesday with a few more weird Easter cards!! Everyone have a lovely evening!!
