Happy Saturday, all!
Today's post is about some tops that I love lately. I love clothes. I really, really do. But, I am a bargain shopper, so when I saw this little floral jacket at H&M over a month ago I had to tell myself no. You see, my wise Nana Smith told me that if you really think you love something, walk away for about 2 weeks and then re-evaluate how much you really love it. I really, really loved it. And it was $39.90...not too bad, but I think $10.00 would have been better! *wink, wink!*
The green wool cardigan was $1.00. I was instantly in love...the colour, the ribbon behind the buttons, the buttons...so cute. I bought it, brought it home and was a little sad to see that the knit had holes at each of the elbows. I never even noticed. My Ma Goddard allowed me to go through her extensive leather scrap collection (all I can say is "wow!"...two Rubbermaid containers full of leather & suede!), but I couldn't find anything that looked quite right. After a trip to Michael's I found these owl iron-on transfers for $1.50 each. I bought 3...2 to cover up the arm holes (which I stitched shut first) and one for the front. Now it's super cute! All for under $6.00! Yay!
I am off to re-arrange the studio. I need a change. I am super bored with it and I think with a little shuffling and organizing, I will be more apt to work in there! Before and after pics are in order for this job.
