DIY: Do It Yourself. I always say I’m going to do more DIY craft projects but I never get around to actually doing any. Well technically that’s not true. This past Christmas I made five Christmas wreaths and gave them to different family members and to a couple of friends. That’s a project that I didn’t seem to have a problem starting or finishing! However, the particular project I’m blogging about today is a t-shirt quilt. I started this project last fall but I put all the blanket squares in a bag after I read a how-to article on what is […]
Back in January (as part of my New Year’s Resolutions) I decided that each month I will do something for myself and something for someone else. It’s kind of my own “Pay it Forward” experiment for 2012. Well, this month, I really splurged on myself. Not only did I get a mani-pedi, but I purchased a new purse. My husband actually bought me the purse, but it was a big splurge. He/I purchased a Louis Vuitton Estrela MM at the LV store (inside Saks Fifth Ave.) in Columbus, Ohio. I know, I know… that was a BIG purchase, but I have been looking at […]
I hope your first day of Spring was as sunny and georgous as mine was here in East Tennessee! I’m not a big fan of shorts because I don’t like the way they tend to ride up in the crotch area, if you know what I mean. So I tend to stick to skirts and dresses. This week’s Dress Form Outfit (#13) was purchased at Filene’s Basement in Chicago several years ago. This beautiful periwinkle blue dress is so soft (92% modal and 8% spandex) and has a ruched waist, which hides my not-so-toned midsection. I usually wear a long […]
It’s been a really hectic couple of weeks (what with no job to occupy my days), so this Dress Form Outfit (#12) is coming out a week later than I had hoped, but here it is… I’m so ready for Spring that my outfits seem to be getting shorter! Today’s outfit features a sheer polka-dot top (a thrift store find) over a black spaghetti strap tank and black shorts. For me, this outfit would not be complete without a fabulous pair of black high-heel wedges (not shown)! Enjoy!
Spring “Marches” in and brings “April” showers, which brings “May” flowers… or something like that! What I mean is that Spring is almost here! A lot has happened in the last month and now I have a lot of time on my hands! All I need to do is figure out what I’m going to do with that time! I guess now I have no excuse not to work on that screenplay for the Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab. So here’s an update… First of all, I am officially without a job, which is okay because with my experience I know I […]
