embellishing myself

a couple of weeks ago i bought a skirt at an op shop. it seemed fine although the previous owner had left a scorch mark on the pocket and some detail stitching had come undone. but it did look nice on. i decided i should buy it seeing it was only $4.99.
so i decided to embellish it, and of course you'd expect nothing less that some vintage fabric or doilies and perhaps a yoyo or too. i doubt you'd ever know there was a mark on the pocket.
now to address the detail stitching. some torn fabric, some vintage trim and a few yoyo's. this is soooo me!
i love embellishments, you can use them on anything, anywhere.

back soon

Wow - that's amazing - and now you have a unique, original, skirt - that no one in the whole wide world has one even remotely like it - and no one ever will.

How cool is that huh? I'd be bouncing, and flouncing, and parading around like a peacock on a fashion catwalk if I had one.

It must give you a really nice feeling inside when you wear it - now get back to your dusting and cleaning, and getting ready to sell your home for adventures new!

I'm off out into the frost and sunshine!

You're a a clever dolly-do!!
Oh what a job preparing the house for sale - I don't envy you - if only I lived closer I could easily be tempted to help with more talk of chocolate!!!!
