And the Winner is……

Hello Blogland!!!! We wound up with a bit less than 7  freakin’ inches of snow yesterday. This is ridiculous!! The Diva won’t step off the porch and sully her dainty toes in the snow. MrBill LOVES it–just more to sniff and pee on!!

Spring (NOT!) in Western Maryland!!This is looking out from my front door.

I had the Diva select the winner of the Giveaway. She had problems with the prize not going to the obvious person-HER!!!! LOLOL  It was quite a production!!

She sniffed at the bowl. and then she decided to lick her chewie.

I had to resort to subterfuge to get her to pick a winner. I rubbed my finger on a bit of fried chicken skin that my husband was discarding and then rubbed the chicken stink on every entry paper!!! She sniffed it excitedly, picked one up, spit it out, gave me a dirty look (this is NOT chicken) and then knocked one out of the bowl!!

Next up are several 1940’s era cards. I adore the watercolor styling and the sweetness of the subjects.  The illustrations were so detailed.

The bunny on the blue background is a WWII area--patriotic themes and colors were very popular during the war.

And now on to the fashion portion of this blog post!! Yesterday was a snowy crapola day so I decided to break out some of the “new” stuff I thrifted this past week! The blouse wound up in the donation pile–it’s too big and I tried to “gather” the excess up in the back with the belt. It kept poofing up and making me crazy so away it goes! I’d been looking for a denim skirt without pockets and such that wasn’t “heavy”. This is perfect for $2!!!

i pulled out my “newest” $5 Nine West boots again today. These have been worn at least once a week since I thrifted them the beginning of the month!
