Meet Katie-Louise Ford



I just stumbled upon  some handmade  beauties by Katie-Louise Ford (Etsy's daily news feed helped to lead the way).  Katie makes and sells darling delicates in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia! Her dresses are lovely (most certainly sweet)! Isn't she such a doll?

Peter Pantsuit (and other thrift store tales of success)




Today on my way home from work  I decided to pop into the Regifting store. This place is nuts, and one can expecting to find from the very best ($6.00 vintage gowns) to the very worst ($6.00 sooty, smokey, pee stained vintage couches). Today was the ultimate thrift store success. I go in not a care in the world, when all of a sudden a golden glint in the distance catches my eye. I hone in to find myself clutching a v-neck, long sleeved, gold embellished, black pantsuit. At this point you're probably thinking "what the hell is wrong with you?" Trust me, the words went through my mind when I picked up the suit, purchased the suit, and pretty much the whole way home as it rode next to me in the car (don't worry, it was in a bag, not buckled in like a passenger). An-y-ways! At home I put the pantsuit on, and boy oh boy best $2.00 spent in a good old fashion time (not to mention the button down chambray Blazers shirt I purchased for .25 cents, yes .25 cents). The good news for you, and me, and everyone we know, is that one weekend a month the Regifting store sells all of  the clothes in the store for .25 cents (yes all of the clothes, smokey, sooty, pee-y, and straight up goodies).

Some Like It Hot...

When I was a kid, I longed for the day I could eat a hot lunch. I was a cold luncher (for life), everyday toting my food to and from school in a brown paper sack. All I ever wanted was to sink my teeth into a American cheese topped burger, enjoy a chocolate milk, and basque in happiness while enjoying school lunch cake  (you know the giant pan of chocolate cake with white icing?). In third grade I somehow finagled my way to hot lunch!  I passed my old brown bag (not to be confused with a 40)  off to a classmate, and volunteered one lunch break in the cafeteria. Although an apron, and a hairnet were involved, the payment was one day of crinkle cut fry glory, and a corn dog.
