lesson learned.

so i think my fingers have a vendetta against me. 
take for example wednesday. first, i got a huge HUGE paper cut on my finger. 
then,that night i was grating up some cheese for yummy chicken quesadillas. as i was doing so, my little fingers decided to slip, and i grated them. ouch.  i now have a grand canyon like chunk missing from my knuckle. great. 

five seconds later my hand hit the griddle and i burnt yet again, another finger.
 point and case. 
so i decided they needed some TLC, tender lovin' care, so i gave myself newspaper nails! don't know what that is? look, and be amazed. 

yep, that's newspaper print right there on my nails. except they didn't turn out very well (it was my first time ever doing it)... i decided that next time to paint a lighter yet brighter color on bottom to really make the newspaper print pop!

lesson learned: take care of your fingers, and they will take care of you!

renovations.

Lately, I have been in a crafty/thrifty mood. 
The other week I went shopping at Goodwill with one of my lovely friends Haley and found a beauty of a dress. It had a weird stain on the shoulder, but I loved it too much to let it go and hoped it would come out in the wash. Thank heavens it did! I looked at the tag and decided to research the brand of my dress: Leslie Fay. Little did I know that I was buying a true vintage dress, the company started in the late 40's. I asked my mom about the Label and she said that Leslie Fay was all the rave back then. I couldn't believe I found such a great dress! My husband laughed when I pulled out the dress, thinking it was just another old fashion dress I bought that wouldn't look good on me. When I put on the whole outfit on Sunday, he looked at me in disbelief. He told me he thought that finding cute things at the thrift store were a rarity and would never happen to me... I sure proved him wrong. Well at least I'd like to think it looks good on me. You be the judge. 
---------------------------------


I decided to pair my red dress with a teal necklace... I'm usually not that daring, but this dress made me feel sassy. 

to tie it all together I wore an old turquoise ring that my mom has had forever. I love getting/wearing old things 
from her, thanks momma! 
-----------------------------------------
Remember that teal necklace up there? I am proud to say that I made that sucker! I was feeling crafty one night and made it out of an old t-shirt! Total cost? About $.35 to buy felt to put on the back. I feel a lot more of these lovely homemade crafts coming my way!
Love me through it.  


AND... that's all. For now. :]
Love you long time.
