Sewing, backyards, and dear creatures
I sewed up another dress! Its kind of hard to see any detail, I need to take a close-up picture of it. It used to be ankle length with a big ruffle along the bottom, not a sight anyone wants to see. It's vintage, but I'm not so good at guessing the ages of things so who knows! For some reason while it was getting sewn up I kept thinking of the Dear Creatures fall collection, even though this dress isn't really that similar. It was probably just wishful thinking. The picture taking was cut short from itching, its November but there are still bugs outside!! How stupid. So the shoe picture is blurry!
I've made it a goal to take pictures all over our "backyard" (behind our house is a big field, pond, and forest) and the tree here is on my list of favorites. I'm saving my absolute favorite tree for the perfect picture taking scenario, which is yet to be thought of.
dress- $5 bin at the clothing warehouse in savannah
tights- I never remember
shoes- target (i've been dying to show off these shoes!!)
I want to thank everyone for their nice comments on the anniversary post! We had a lot of fun, of course, on our 'anniversary' weekend. We decided to wait to celebrate until the weekend so we'd have more time and not have to worry about jobs and such. It was filled with food, fun, fancy hotels, and rain. The coat that I'm wearing in these pictures was my anniversary gift from Patrick. He knows how to win me over, ha. And its not with jewelery or flowers, that's for sure (although he still does get me flowers)... its with clothing and food. And by the way, it is the best coat I've ever put on, in my whole life I think.
(veggie dumpling appetizer please)
I was excited about going to dinner
Also, what is everyone's opinion when it comes to replying to comments? Do you like it better to get a reply on your own blog or in the same original comment section on the post?
