Hello Blogland!! I am glad today is my Friday because this week has sucked at work–the computer ate my design drawing just as I was finalizing it for review so I’ve had to semi-start over (I had a proposed sketch saved thankfully!!
I’m going to be spending some time in the gardens this weekend. Even though I covered my plants, the freak late season frost/freeze killed about 8 tomato plants, my basil, my eggplants and my squash. BUMMER!! I’ll be replanting them plus I need to get some scented geraniums to pot up and pineapple sage.
If you garden and can get it I HIGHLY recommend Pineapple Sage–it’s an annual but makes a shrub!! The leaves are a lime green and smell FANTASTIC–They make a wonderful tea. It gets these dark red spikey flowers in September. I plant it among my perennials and shrubs every year.
I’m glad everyone enjoyed those hunky hairy 70’s dudes!!! Those were the days!! today I’m feeling a bit snarky so I’m sharing ads that just make me laugh!
And now to the invisible portion of our program. Yesterday’s outfit turned out to be a DUD DUD DUD!! I felt uncomfortable and blah all day. It worked in theory but the dress ( a gauzy fabric) stretched really weird on the top and the armholes were down at my waist by the end of the day. It’s in the donation bag now. Here’s the evidence:
Today’s outfit was inspired by the always awesomely cool Reva of REVASRAGS2ROSES!! I took one look at this outfit and knew I had to recreate it!!
I didn’t have a pink blazer but recently thrifted a bright pink cardigan. What do y’all think?? I got tons of compliments on it and felt funky, comfortable and just so dang COOL!! Thanks Reva for the inspiration! Since my shoes aren’t blingy like hers I pinned a vintage brooch on pants cuff.
I’ve got a pile of stuff to prep for some refashioning. I like to seam rip whilst watching TV. So I’m off to watch the American Idol (GO CANDICE!!!) whilst I rip away!! Everyone have a great weekend and I’ll be back Sunday!
