I'm hoping Disco & I can go over to the costume shop today, and get some medieval gowns for All Hallows. I don't want to do a lot of walking and/or standing around to accomplish this! And I would prefer not spending a small fortune for these -- I'm hoping to rent rather than buy!
Well, that plan has already hit a snag -- the shop closes super early on Saturday. I will have to go after work next Tuesday & get the family to meet me there (I have a feeling I'll need a dresser).
This week I've been digging deeper into the jewelry boxes, for some oldies but goodies. The Plaidman & I went on a canyon vacation out west many, many years ago. One of the mementos I've kept is a little choker of bugle beads, turquoise chips, and a shell -- it's older than DiscoDame!
And, appropriately, I wore it with paisley! The earring featured in the middle pic is one (of a pair, of course) that Disco made for me, I just love them. And check out the sweater chain! I found that in an antique shop, and boy howdy was it a rare find. I'd been looking at antique shops, yard sales, and just wherever I thought I might find one. I can't wait till November...when I can get a haircut!
The Plaidman & I went over to the library, to verify that he can pick up held books I've requested. While there, I found French Girl Knits Accessories. Some nice stuff...makes me wonder why I haven't already bought it! I mean, accessories are just perfect for giftables -- tiny, portable, not much of an investment in yarn...Although I think the yarn buying moratorium has expired.
