Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘season

Hello my friends, it’s FRI-YAY…FRI-YAY and the last day of summer 2012.  It’s bittersweet saying goodbye to summer but all is all it was good filled with fun, food, family and friends.  I must admit that I am looking forward to a new season equally filled with fun, food, family and friends – we just got an invite to Thanksgiving Dinner – woot woot!!!

So whatever your plans are for the 1st weekend in fall, whether its hiking; biking; thrifting; shopping; apple picking, Holloween decorating; baking, raking, sleeping; cooking; cleaning; eating or just vegging in front of the tv, I hope it’s fantabulous!!!

Happy Hump Day Wednesday….let the countdown begin.  Why do I wish my life away by rushing the week to get to the weekend?  I need to be more conscience of that and simply enjoy each day because they are not promised.  Today’s outfit is once again not thrifted even though it didn’t start out that way.  The first skirt I put on was from Goodwill but it was a little too tight….gotta watch those carbs!!  I love the color burgundy for the fall and have read that it’s the color for the season, that and “oxblood”.  Who in the world cut an ox and then decided to use the color of the blood to describe clothing – where in the world do you find an ox anyway?

The multi-color skirt was purchased last month from Boscov’s (remember this sale) and I paired it with the burgundy top from Ross or Marshalls.  Picking up the mustard color in the skirt with the xhilaration sandals via Target.  Necklace and earring set from Jewelrymax.net as well as rhinstone, butterfly ring.  The tri-color metal bracelet is from my jewelry box (which means I can’t remember where it was purchased).

Have a wonderful day and make the most of it, I’ll try to do the same.

Last week’s heat wave officially ended on Monday with temps only reaching 89 degrees, but today it’s expected to be 92 or higher.  Last week my outfits were shorts, tanks and bathing suits but that’s not going to fly at work, so cotton is the perfect fabric to keep me cool in this weather.  The sleeveless cotton shirt and skirt were thrifted from two different Goodwill stores earlier in the season.

REPOSTING FROM LAST YEAR – THE DECK STILL LOOKS GOOD AFTER 1 SEASON!

A few weeks ago we purchased Deck RESTORE from Home Depot because it was time to start the outdoor projects and staining the deck was #1 on my list.  In all honesty, I don’t like using stain because it’s messy, time consuming and never seems to last long enough for me.  Staining usually highlights the imperfections of the wood, however, this product although a bit pricey hid the imperfections, wasn’t messy or time consuming,  I just hope it lasts longer than 2 seasons!

My OOTD was thrifted from my oldest son’s closet – he put the tshirt and shorts in the box slated for a Goodwill donation – lol

We purchased the 5 gallon container (cheaper than the kit which contained only 2 gallons and a roller)

   a Restore Roller; we had a pan and brush in the garage.

The color is Adobe

Because the product was sitting in the garage for 2 weeks, I had my son do a little “remixing”

Swept the deck to remove dust and debris

It wasn’t necessary to Power Wash the deck, so just used ammonia and water to clean off surface dirt

The lid was very easy to open once the plastic tab was removed.

I thought I would need pliers which is why they are pictured in the tray above.

 Very easy pour – thick consistency

Roll the 1st coat and allow to dry at least 3 hours – it took me a little over an hour to complete.

I went grocery shopping and did the 2nd coat the next evening after work.

 After the 2nd coat

From this …

To this!

The best part was the easy cleanup with just plain water – definitely beats staining any day!
