. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Thankful Thursday

January 12, 2012

Thankful Thursday

 Things I'm thankful for today: 


1. These grey boots - I bought them years ago for $9 at a store called Steve & Barry's (which is no longer around).  They were my first pair of boots and I debated about buying them.  I wear them ALL the time.  They are way too worn so I bought a replacement pair - over a year ago.  Still wearing them regardless! 

2. A three day weekend coming up.  

3. My sewing machine.  I made a little make - up bag  the other day with no pattern or tutorial.  Can't wait to share it! 

4. A conversation I had with an old student awhile ago.  He came back to visit and told me about how he had a trumpet solo in his last band concert.  I told him that I used to play the trumpet and he said "I know, that's why I did." 

5. Dresses that double as skirts.  Especially when they're polka - dotted.
