Don't tell me the sky is the limit, there are footprints on the MOON!
Here in Portland, last nights harvest moon was captivating. I found myself outside late tending to my garden lost in my thoughts. I feel a change coming on, I'm hungry for it. Maybe fall has already landed in my lap and with that new weight I'm eager to find out what it is I must shed. My hands tended to many things this weekend and I found so much joy in everything. This took me no time at all to create but I love it to no end. Curtise I think these pink cuffs might be from you :)
I wonder what my neighbors must think when I bring my things outside to photograph.
I also finished part of the arbor.
I first drew and cut out my own stencils and then painted about 5 layers of color. I think it turned out pretty cute! The top outside will be tricky because I will have to do it from a ladder that I will have to set upon the rocks, not ideal so I'm just enjoying this very much for now.
The best part was painting it. I took Peetee out with me early in the morning and curled him up in a blanket and tucked him on the bench. I took my time and enjoyed every minute of it.
Remember two weeks ago it looked like this, not bad eh:)
I was also spoiled by Holly who sent me this bright happy package last week. Hey did you hear, she finally had that baby girl. Congrats honey!
Look at this bounty~ Hmong patches, some of her photographs, handmade hair clips, an owl bag and some cool old patches!
I got plans for these already.
I think I may have got my last wear of the season in this new favorite dress.
Cristi also managed to wear a beautiful summer dress when we went out for beers the other day. We are working at the Belmont Street fair this Saturday and are both looking forward to that.
Of course we had time for thrifting. We each found a lil treasure.
I found this for $5 and I'm hoping Jon can turn it into a boom box one day!
Another fringe scarf and what has to be my last bag purchase ever! Ok I know that is going to be difficult but I'm at maximum capacity!
After spending an afternoon in my spare bedroom, AKA dressing room, I packed up another 3 bags to donate. It's time to get brutal, but I had to have this scarf:)
and this dress. I can't resist color, I'm drawn to it like I need it to live.
What is your weakness? Is it thrifting? Food? Porn? Reality TV? Books? What is it?
