Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

April is a month of renewal and rebirth and for many years one of excitement and joy – a cousin’s birthday on the 1st; my grandmother’s birthday on the 2nd; my sister’s birthday on the 10th; another cousin’s birthday on the 12th; an uncle’s birthday on the 15th; an aunt’s birthday on the 19th and finally my ‘best friend since 3rd grade’s’ birthday on the 25th.

Now April is a month of death – my grandmother’s death; my sister’s death; and my uncle’s death makes this a sad month for me.  I look at the blooms on the Daffodils and Tulips with sadness in my eyes…my daily routines are muted…there’s no real joy in my heart…dark colors comfort me…my heart aches and my smiles seem forced…but life goes on and “This Too Shall Pass”.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is my last day at work until next Tuesday, the 2nd of April and I am counting down the hours!  Looking forward to relaxing but more importantly cleaning out my closets!  Getting ready for the 1st Flea Market of the season and will be gathering unused clothes and household items in order to make a little extra cash.

Maxi Skirt - Boscov's

This is my favorite maxi skirt and I will be keeping it because the print can be paired with a variety of tops and shoes, therefore, it will always be a closet staple.

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

 Hello Friends and Happy March Eve!

Can you believe today is the last day of February?  I am taking a PTO day off from work and will be attending an event later at The Money School of Delaware.  Yesterday started out wet and rainy so I just wore black slacks, a zebra print top and flats then added an orange belt to break up the black and white.  It wasn’t fashionable just comfy Corporate casual – what do you think?

OOTD 2 27 13 001

The orange purse was purchased from Charmingly Linda’s Consignment Shop and I tied a multi-color scarf around the handles.

OOTD 2 27 13 002

I was going to wear the single bracelet that I made in my DYI post (here), but decided to add a few wooden bangles to the zebra print ones that I had in my jewelry box

OOTD 2 27 13 007

I used orange nail polish to cover a silver ring – another DYI

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

When I saw this top at Goodwill I knew I had to get it because of all the colors, it would work with almost anything in my closet. There was just one slight problem…it’s very low cut in the front and I knew hubby would not let me out of the house in it.

OOTD 2 7 13 014

 

It just hung in my closet…that was until yesterday after reading a post by a fellow blogger, Jean of all Trades…I am now wearing it backwards!!!

OOTD 2 7 13 001

I am glad that I kept the shirt but more importantly, I am thankful for bloggers who come up with great ways to re-fashion clothing and jewelry!  This necklace was a $1.00 find at the Flea Market and I used nail polish to give the stones some color.

Remember those cute kids from the ’90’s group, Kriss Kross, they wore their clothes backwards too – everything old is new again!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Being the sleepy head that I am, getting up every week day at 6 am definitely does not give me a thrill.  However, once I’m up and moving the situation greatly improves especially when I see God’s Glory.   Waking up to a beautiful day provides the motivation to have a prosperous one and I hope it’s the same for you.

The rays of sunshine across the frost covered grass gave me pause to stop and say, “Thank you God for another beautiful day”!
