I scored a handful of dresses at the Bryn Mawr Festival of Garage Sales a few weeks back. Most will eventually wind up on Etsy, but this is one I’m a keepin’ for myself. Any dress with pockets is A-OK with me, plus I love the coconut shell buttons at the shoulder. A dress, boots and a bun is pretty much my go-to look for work when I’m running late, as I was the day these were taken. Three steps and I’m out the door. Easy peasy.
Dress: Sears, found at garage sale, $4
Boots: $5, garage sale
Silver & stone cuff: Handmade by my aunt in 1970s
Other silver bracelets: I’ve had since I was a wee one

Today was simply gorgeous, wasn’t it? I’m looking forward to a night of unadulterated domesticity. Already since work I’ve busted out a strawberry rhubarb custard pie for my newish neighbors across the street. I’m not the most skilled baker by any means, and this was my very first attempt at a lattice crust. I think it turned out OK…
Also on night’s agenda: cooking up a simple supper of shrimp, rice and veg and then sewing some, writing some and reading some.
Until next time,
