hurrah! it is thrifty thursdays,
oh how i have missed my thrifty thursdays 'show and tell'
so without further a do i shall proceed...
well, truth be told dearest readers i felt a little guilty leaving my children to loiter,
but upon entering the thrift store my guilt slipped away
for that is the wonder of a thrift store...
it just becomes you,
and the your next peachy find.
i do believe yesterday,
i had my most peachiest frock find to date.
i found her rather neglected upon the racks of despair.
indeed it was her color i was instantly attracted to,
that 'perfectly perfect' sludgy, slightly icky, green.
and then to see that perfect green matched with blossoms and branches,
not to mention a mandarin collar...
well i think it comes as no surprise
when i say
i was overcome with dizziness and not the Mr Vertigo kind.
i did not bother to try her on,
her price tag being only $5 i was willing to take a chance...
if her fit was iffy
then i would 'choppity chop' her up to make cushions.
upon returning to the shed
i donned my new thrift store frock,
i gasped the gasp
could it be this little sweetie had potential,
perhaps a little loose and yes way too long,
but surely nothing Miss Ethel could not handle
after a few stolen moments here and there in my studio
i noted my thrift store frock began to shine...
her pretty summery self shone forth.
she is thinking it is all adding up to Mr Summer doing a bit of loitering himself ~ Tif
