Holy Moly Me Oh My!

 It has been quite a while since I have updated! My gosh, life just gets in the way sometimes. You know, work. Blah! I've been trying to find a new job, but the economy is just yuck. No luck yet.

I've been doing more photography lately. I have two digital collages that are just awesome that I put together. I'll have to add them at the end. I'm actually taking some of my photos to a local fair to be judged. I'm excited.

 I have been thrifting quite a bit in the past few months. I have lots of photos! I've condensed them for your sake and my own. Just grouped them for easier viewing.

Anywhoo.. onto the finds!

My awesomely gorgeous dresses! The only one I don't really care fore is the black and white "tribal" one. The blue and pink ones are the same dress, just different colors. My absolute favorite dress is the 60's housewife periwinkle and white polkadot dress. With a white belt it looks ab fab! The teal and white in the lowest left corner is a bit tight in the chest, but it looks super cute on. I can wear a tank underneath without having to worry about showing my giblets. My second absolute favorite is the second to last dress. The light blue with red roses. Love it!


This is another dress I have. Very school teachery. I'd like to have it shortened a bit. If I could get it to my knees, it would be much cuter, I think.


All of the cardigans I picked up to go with my dresses.


All my books. I'm a bibliophile, what can I say?

Some shirts and capris/shorts. The orange tunic is huuuge on me, but looks super stylish with a wide black belt and black leggings or jean capris.



Buttons!


Cute yellow layered skirt!



Little black kitten heels.



Purses!

       


Now, on to my crafty creations!

Moss stitch bow head band! I followed the pattern wrong so it's a little jank.


Dishcloths/Washcloths!


Hair accessories!


This one is a honker! Maybe I should mail it to Lady Gaga?


This is a neck supported that I got from the doctor. Early on in June I had a bad bout of torticollis and had to go to urgent care for it. It sucked. Plus I took some vicodin that didn't agree with me. Whoops! So I got this lovely collar from the urgent care doc. I figured I should make little sleeves for it when I got better. This way if it gets sweaty, I just have to wash the sleeves. The collar itself I don't think you can wash. It's like a dense foam.


The pink and black fun fur scarf I've been dinking around with for a while. Finally finished. A little shorter that I'd originally planned, but hey, at least you won't be trippin' on it. For sale!


That's about all. Not really much else to report. I'm going to try to start blogging at least twice to three times a week with various things. Shoot me some ideas of what you'd like to see/read!

Photos as I promised!




I got the first photo framed. I plan to print out the other two and frame them just as they are here.

Same with this one. I plan to eventually have this framed the way you see it here!


Aren't they perrty?! My favorite is the hydrangeas!

Like I said I plan to start trying to blog 2-3 times a week! Shoot me some suggestions of what you'd like to see and hear! I am all ears... err.. eyes. Whatever. You know what I mean! ;D

Keep calm and thrift on!
