Making It My Own and Garden Progress
I picked up this jacket at the VOA a couple of weeks ago and added some lace to the hem and the sleeves to make it my own. Not a big change, just a little pizazz. I thought about putting lace around the collar, too, but decided to keep it simple. It's not my style to have a doily appliqued on my back. I might switch out the buttons one of these days but for now it is done.
This is "as found". I thought it had good bones and love the color. I am also working on the white jacket I mentioned in the post about the Dye-Na-Flow dyes. I didn't realize what a score they were at The Bins until I went to purchase more colors - yikes!
A little more progress on the garden remodel. This is a cold frame for starting seeds. We picked up the vintage windows at the antique mall, I painted them, and the husband built the box to fit. The dirt will arrive next Monday so we are getting close now.
It is a beautiful day here in Portland but I know that isn't the case for all of you. Take good care and be safe!
