Hello FRUMPMEISTER! Yes, my mother laughed at me when she saw me pick up this black beauty. I probably look like I could be a sister wife in this get up or Carrie's mother (scary, I know).
But a few snips here and there and she was ready for a night on the town or rather a three hour church service ;)
How 'bout an uncropped photo for ya! I guess I don't pay my photographers enough.
I love the round collar and the awesome thing is the ruffle is detachable so if I want to kick this dress up a notch with a cool necklace I totally can in a snap-or a few buttons ;). Dress, Vintage: $1.00 Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi: $1.00 Belt: $1.00 Earrings: Target $3.00 OUTFIT TOTAL: $6.00
I have a wonderful friend...she is such an inspiration to me. She gives my daughter piano lessons every week. She gives of herself to SO MANY other people we know. I want her to know how special she is. I hope this wreath says that. Says...you are full of life and happiness and I'm grateful to be your friend and to have you in my life.
Spring wreath with my beautiful blooming irises.
Irises in the front of my house this morning.
Tiny little dyed clothes pins to hold my pennant banner on.
Layered flowers using American Crafts Classics Collection. I love the texture and colors of this paper for spring.
Hope all you beautiful people are having a GREAT DAY. I'm going to story time at the library with my baby boy and running errands with my mama.
I was thrifting at the Salvation Army with my mom recently and came across this vintage beauty. My mama thought I was nuts, but I think the "after" has persuaded her that you can upcycle many a vintage dud. For a dollar why not try?!?!
Check out my sweet pumps! Yup one whole dollar, but the lace is black not navy :*(
Here it is with some sandals. I got the cherry red vintage necklace at a different thrift store for dollar. Belt was .50 cents at the SA. Sandals were a dollar or cheaper?
