Keepsakes and Fashion
This pillow went every where with me. And to this day it stays on my bedside table.
Today it is just the shell. It lost all of its filling years and years ago and now it is just two pieces of cotton still sewn together. The case was lost years ago but the important part still is with me.
I have often thought of framing it, but want it out to still touch and feel every now and then.
This brings me to new things that will become keepsakes.
I just received this little piggy from the most talented Trish over at Sweetnellie.etsy.com
Her things are made to stand the test of time and have much love shown to them.
Though they are not made for children to play with, they are a great piece of art to cherish.
Some of you commented on the little red crocheted slippers from my Valentine vignette and those came from Trish as well.
If I had a little girl this would adorn her room, but since I am still a little gal at heart it will adorn mine ;)
Okay, now for some fun fashion. I have been in search since the Autumn for a great pair of overalls.
There is now much demand for spring and very hard to find at a decent price for vintage ones.
New ones are now hitting all the spring fashion lines and costing a small fortune to own.
I lucked out and stalked etsy for months to find the right size. They aren't as worn in as I wanted but I will do that on my own by loving them and wearing them all spring and summer long.
I find them very 1930's dust bowl fashion like. Dress them up with some girly color and ruffled shirt, great sandals and some chunky jewels, throw in a great oversized clutch and boom ready for spring.
This pic from last falls Ralph Lauren Runway was my inspiration.
I know my pic is horrible but I just wanted to share. I need new lighting in my closet.
So what are your keepsakes or new inspirations for Spring? I would love to know.
