Happy Earth Day! Is anyone doing anything to celebrate today? We all have the regular schedule today - work and school. I did recently plant grapes, strawberries, stevia and a clementine tree in my front yard. I love beautiful landscaping although my style tends to look a bit haphazard and wild. I also love to do double-duty landscaping and planting an edible yard. I have plans for some veggies next :-) It is my goal to become more self-sufficient and be able to eat from the yard and not rely on transported food as much.
I also upcycle a lot of what I wear. I recently completed a fun, colorful scarf that I made from a skirt. It was a patterned skirt and I simply cut the bottom at the section where the pattern and color changes. I simply hemmed the raw edges and I was done.
|I bought this skirt for $1.00 at a garage sale last October.|
|This is the bottom of the skirt.|
|Aren't the little sequins adorable?|
|It's a fun scarf to wear and those little sequins give it just the right amount of bling.|
It gave a nice pop to an otherwise very bland outfit of a black skirt with a white tee. Uh-oh, I think I just put myself into a thrifting mood......See ya!
