Hey, you again?
F21 Dress (thrifted and altered)
Vintage Leather Belt (thrifted)
Hand Stiched Leather Handbag (thrifted)
American Eagle Outfitters Boots
Great Northwest Hat
Vintage Silver Ring, Icing Turquoise Rings
Vintage Silver Cuff (thrifted) AEO Cuffs, Vintage RB sterling Bracelet (thrifted)
This is the F21 dress I altered the straps on, I kept going between turning it into a skirt of fixing the top because while I really like this particular material and stripes, the top of the dress just wasn't working. I ended up altering the top when I couldn't find a striped dress that was close enough to my "ideal" striped dress and I'm fairly please with how it turned out.
I'm trying really hard not to over use this field in my pictures, but it's really hard to resit
it during the golden hour. Grass just photographs so nicely in golden light! Not to mention
I really love all of the flowers, it's so nice just walking out the door and seeing grass and having the scent of flowers hit you. I keep harping on it, I know, but it feels wonderful. One of my little brother came out to barrow some chains to lift the engine out of his truck and the first thing he said was "whoa, it's so peaceful out here." You don't even realize how much the constant noise in the city affects you until you get away from it, silence can indeed be golden. (Not that it's silent, there's always the birds and the sounds of nature but it's far more relaxing than hearing screams and running to the door wondering if you're going to have to call the cops again.)
The house is coming along pretty well, we're getting ready finally to rebuild the kitchen and get the counters and cabinets up. We need to redo the wiring in the back bedroom and after that it's time to hit the roof. We didn't realize that the roof was going to be quite as bad as it is and after looking it over, we're going to have to put a new one on before winter. Luckily we can do that and we'll be able to put way more insulation in so hopefully it will be toasty come -60 below. (That is the one downfall, we're in a cold little pocket right here. It gets nice and warm in the summer but man, it really get cold in the winter.)
