Sorry about the lack of posts lately, it's mostly due to grumpy moods and doing things around the house, but next week I have some giveaways for you! To celebrate 1,000 followers of course, it's crazy, I remember looking at blogs with 500 and hoping that someday I would reach that point, but 1,000? You guys rock :)
So here's what I've been doing:
Turning this stained, dusty, 1940s jacket into a blouse, it's turning out better than I expected!

I've realized that:
a. It's unlikely I will find a pair of 50s dungarees that fit me (always too small or too big).
b. If I do they are way too expensive.
c. Freddies of Pinewood will never make them for women with hips.
d. There are no vintage patterns for dungarees
So the other day when Twila Jean and I were doing a bit of thrifting, I picked up a pair of regular, high waist 80s Wranglers, and yesterday begun transforming them into just what I want. So far so good! When the weather is less rainy I'll wear them :)
I was thinking it would be cool to do a little tutorial on how to transform them, anyone interested in that?
I made this crumb cake today for my brother and it turned out yummy, and just like the picture! I am pretty much baking challenged, and have tried to bake something weekly in order to fix that. The results have been ok, I really want to make another cheesy crust pie though.
And here are some photos of my jewelry table, someone asked to see them a few weeks ago. I have my everyday jewelry box (with pin ups all over) on top of a "I won't really wear this much but I'll keep it anyway" jewelry box, necklaces on a holder, and bangles in a little red hat box.
So there you go! Hope everyone is having a nice week, or has a nice weekend planned ahead!
