I was shocked today to feel the first breezes of fall.
You see, typically in Alabama, we get Blistering Hot Sun up until October, in which we get a brief week or two of actual fall type weather. Then it immediately turns gloomy and gray (which I personally don't mind, but I just LOVE autumn and could do with loads more of it).
So anyways, back to the breezes.
It got me in the mood to decorate our home for fall, which I'd been looking forward to- but really hadn't been inclined to do, due to the afore-mentioned Blistering Hot Sun.
Our home smells like warm coffee beans, spicy vanilla, and hints of pumpkin right now. Mmmmm.
I have to say, I am a thrift store gal. Poor Emerson has been dragged along to quite a few in her short life time.
Lately, I've been on the search to find her some winter clothes.
You see, before she was born, many of my baby showers consisted of starry-eyed childless women like myself who dreamed of dressing their little girls in darling little dresses and two piece outfits.
If it wasn't those girls at my showers, it was sweet grandmother types who also had fond memories of dressing their little girls up in darling little dresses and two piece outfits.
So I ended up with over 50 darling little dresses and two piece outfits.
Yes, ebay has already seen many of those that I had to weed out, but that left me with a quest to find some practical, warm play clothes for Em for this winter.
And the ol' thrift store came through for me.
I already found some good stuff there last week, and this week I found 2 cute hoodies, one fleece reversible jacket, a long sleeved onesie, and 2 pairs of Old Navy pants (one khaki cords, one dark washed jeans) - all for $6!! Can't get much better than that. :)
Off to do some more creating. Oh yeah- I finally completed Effer Dare #4! I'll post pics tomorrow... hopefully I'll be able to complete a few more layouts tonight.
