New Blog!

Hello friends! I have decided it is time to move on and start a new blog!   I have loved this blog so much and I know I could just pay $5 to expand my photo storage but I think a new blog with a new look can be a great way to start off fresh!  I hope you will all follow me over to Thrifted Thoughts!  To check it out, CLICK HERE

It's the Little Things..

  • I saw Breaking Dawn Part Two with Lauren!  I had so much fun!  And you know what?  I totally teared up at the end. 
  • I finished my sewing project in school and I am going to share it with you soon!
  • I went estate sale shopping!  I haven't been in forever!
  • I bought some art supplies with Lauren earlier this week- Yay art!
  • I thrifted myself four (4!) pairs of pants!  That's right, world.  Oakley Seal is not wearing a skirt or a dress today.

What I Wore: 11-14-12 Part One

 Bon jour!  Today was a blazer, jeans, and t-shirt day.  It felt good-except for the shoes.  My vintage heels left multiple blisters.

Shout out to my Dad!!! Happy Birthday!

Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted to talk about how wonderful yesterday was for a second:  Yesterday was my dad's birthday, I finished my sewing project which means that dress I showed you I was going to make?  I get to post it as soon as it is graded! I also got to work in AP art and I got a lot done, I got to go shopping for art supplies with my bestest friend, Lauren and we had some good conversations!

Happy Birthday Dad!!!

Today is my dad's birthday!! I am so grateful to have him!! I love you Dad!

What I Wore: 11-13-12

 I forgot to take good outfit pictures while there was still light.  These pictures were a quick few shots at 8:30.  I love all of the fun patterns in this dress!  I wanted to modernize my vintage dress a bit so I added a leather jacket and my wedge booties.  I liked this outfit and it looked tons better.

Today is my Dad's birthday!  Happy birthday Dad!  I love you!!!! Thanks for taking me out to dinner to celebrate with you!

Some Art.

I have a few pieces in the school display case!  Tell me what you think!

The train was my first ever real water color project.  It was super fun but really challenging!  I would love to work with it more.  I just need some brushes!
The mountains are unfinished, so maybe I will add some detail when I get it back!  This painting was really bizarre.  With legs coming out of a planet, pearls in the galaxy and a mushroom cloud coming out of a cat's head, I am sure I can put this in the top five strangest pieces I have done yet.

List of Ten: Reasons I Want to Embroider

I really feel inspired by embroidery today so I want to tell you why I want to learn so badly:

  1. I want to learn how to embroider because it is another lost art!
  2. Embroidery is so beautiful
  3. I want to frame my work and hang it in my room
  4. It would help with my hand stitching in sewing
  5. I could embroider a pair of jeans
  6. How many people can wear jeans and say they embroidered them?
  7. I want a cool hippie dress to embroider
  8. I would use embroidery in my paintings and drawings- cool, right?
  9. I want to design my own clothes and embroidering them would really be so cool!
  10. It would make me feel more old fashioned, which is my style exactly.

My Grandma!

I came across this old photo of my grandma on my dad's side.  I absolutely love this!  Isn't she absolutely beautiful?

I hope everyone had a fantastic start to their week!  I should be posting more starting tomorrow!

I am Still Here!

Hello friends!  Just wanted to let you know that I am still here, just extremely busy with all of this school stuff.   Gah, I cannot wait to go to bed tonight.  So much to do!  Please excuse my brief absence from the blog!

List of Ten: Professions I Would Love

With college coming up soon and all the emails from colleges I have been getting, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the careers I would choose:
  1. I would love to own a vintage clothing store
  2. I think it would be so cool to be an artist
  3. I would like to be a fashion designer-watch out, Project Runway!
  4. I would like to maybe teach art in high school or elementary school.
  5. Earning money through sponsors on my blog would be a dream come true!
  6. I would love to sell things I make on Etsy, along with vintage clothes
  7. I would teach sewing in a high school.
I can't really think of any more right now, but maybe I will come back and add more later!

What I Wore: 11-5-12

Daylight savings time.  Everyone in my house was walking around the house at 8:30 p.m. exhausted looking for something to do.  I crocheted part of a cowl and cleaned out my room. 

I got this skirt over the weekend in St. George!  My grandpa was nice enough to lend me the money for it since I forgot to cash in my paycheck before we left.  Thank you Grandpa! I will pay you back the next time I see you!

Birthday St. George Trip!

My grandma and sister had a birthday this past week so my family went to St. George to celebrate!

 I came home with some pretty amazing clothes!!!  Thanks Renae, Grandma, and Grandpa!

My aunt Renae thought I looked somewhat British in my sweater and shoes so I had to get a picture with the telephone booth!  Oh, if only it were blue.  That would have made my dreams come true!
 We saw the Beegees!  Oh my word I want to buy all of their songs!  It was so fun!
