Backyard Find

Yesterday, my sister and dad were putting up new fencing and also demolishing an addition to a detached garage/shed. Two bottles were unearthed. One was Sawyers Crystal Bluing. Dates to about 1880, so yes, my folks live in an old house!

Renaissance Fever Subsided

After about 15 years and 60+ pounds weight gain, I am finally ready to part with my almost finished Renaissance-style dress. I "volunteered" at the short-lived Maine Renaissance Faire and had the Ren bug for several years. It was a lot of fun and work while it lasted...and now this outfit and extra fabric is up for grabs.

Minecraft Cake

For Jonah's 10th birthday party today - a Creeper cake! He and his sister helped.

Got my craft on a bit today...I used a new paper punch I got on clearance for $6 at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts. I love this photo of the kids and their Zimmergrandparents!

Today is another frigid day at seven degrees so I am dressed warmly but not very creatively! Today's outfit is composed of a white turtleneck under a teal striped 1/4 zip fleece pullover from Lands End, which I received as a Christmas gift. The Eddie Bauer jeans I purchased for $4 at a secondhand store called Matthew 25 Thrift Shop in Pennsylvania. Again, today I am wearing my teal Ugg boots. No jewelry save for my fitbit today. 

So I forgot to ask Shawn to snap my pic so here are photos from the web:

Good morning! Day 2 of the clothing/makeup moratorium! Today's shirt is from Kut From the Cloth. I just bought it in mid-December 2013 so today is the first time I am wearing it! It is really blousy and has a busy print, so I thought I'd team it with straight leg jeans. I also added cute perforated sling-back leather shoes but ended up wearing teal Uggs since it is a bitter TEN degrees out today. I am happy to have done my nails last last night too now that I have finally stopped biting them. Glitter makes me happy! I am decided no jewelry to keep things simple. So all in all, I am pretty happy with this outfit. Fairly simple and thank goodness the jeans still fit.
