MySoCalledJunkyLife Giveaway!

Sarah at "My So Called Junky Life" is the sweetest person ever, I was just telling her how I love to browse through her Etsy shop and drool as I look. There may be a trade between Sarah and I in the works, as I just hoard my enormous stash of vintage jewelry like a troll and Sarah actually does something lovely with it.

I just heard about her very generous giveaway: A $50 gift certificate to her etsy shops! She just updated her shop with a bunch of vintage "assemblage jewelry."

Dottie Angel Challenge

Today, I've decided to try something crazy.

I've decided to join dottie angel in her amazing and scary challenge.

I am committing to buy only handcrafted or secondhand goods for my home or my closet for 1 year. I'm also adding my 4 children to the challenge. They have so many clothes right now. I can mend, thrift, get creative, and do what I need to do to make sure nobody goes naked.

As I am typing this, I'm really considering how challenging this could be. I'm thinking: what about Christmas? I guess that can be handmade. My kids have too many toys and things anyway. Spencer's birthday on Friday. I don't have presents bought for that yet.

So here are my exceptions. I'm starting TODAY. But, I don't have time to get creative and make Spencer something for his birthday, so I'm going to make that my exception (unless I have some great idea before Friday). The other exception is, of course, any underclothing that may need to be purchased. Oh yeah, and diapers. I won't do cloth diapers. I just won't. Sorry. And the store isn't included in this challenge. I need supplies and can't get them second hand.

I will update my blog whenever anything worth mentioning comes up with this challenge. Wish me luck!

Vintage Slip Rescue Mission

I've been busy with dye baths, vintage fabric and my sewing machine getting these upcycled vintage slips ready to list in my etsy shop. I have lots more on the way!
