|Love the cottage on this vintage card|
I am sporting a new accessory these days. The doctor ordered a cane for stability walking. There were loads to choose from at the medical equipment place. I chose something subtle and classy.
Here's my picking up my geezer cane outfit. The pants are Gloria Vanderbilt and are actually glen plaid jeans. There's a bit of a blue stripe in it . Everything is thrifted except the deer necklace which was DIY. I'm wearing the marbled silk knit August Silk sweater I recently thrifted.
Miraculously I have only gained 5 lbs being so inactive. I consider this a WIN. Here's a picture of my outerwear last week. I thrifted this Lord & Taylor cashmere car coat last year for $4. They retail fro $400+. It's a bit big this year but I'm still going to wear it. It's warm yet not "heavy".
I've been slogging along with the dollhouse. Since I can only manage maybe 1 hour per day it's been slow-going. I've gotten the two sides clapboarded this week. It's a lot of measuring and making guidelines as preparation. Each piece is individually glued on. Next up is the front-it gets straight clapboard half way up and then fish tail shingles on the top.
I also have to start painting all of the trim pieces white. At least it gives me something to look forward to-snerk!!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!! I shall be back along next week if I don't die of boredom first!!
