I am having one of those weeks when I feel like there is just so much going on. For the past two days I have been helping Lynn, who is throwing a big jewelry party over the weekend, and there has been a lot of polishing and arranging to do. Our house is a mess because our downstairs home improvement projects are slowly but surely taking over our lives. The veggie garden has issues of its own, such as snow, hail and freezing temperatures, and I have been busy trying to save my lettuce, onions and pansies from certain death. One of our cats has started peeing in unusual places again, so that's another concern. I have also been working on a very therapeutic guest post, which has been wonderful, but it has also made my mind feel increasingly occupied. However, I managed to find the time to throw together an all-second-hand outfit in order to participate in Eyeliah's wonderful "wear 100% vintage" challenge. My tights are not second hand, but considering how difficult it is to come by vintage tights, and tights are sort of like underwear anyway, I think I am happy to call this outfit 100% second hand anyway.
Despite our jewelry party project, Lynn and I found the time yesterday to swing by a wonderful antique / second hand store. I bought this blouse:
these vintage clip-on earrings:
and this cute candy / sugar dispenser:
You know how I complained about my green card stuff yesterday? Take a closer look at the form they sent me regarding their need of an additional copy of our marriage certificate. They are asking for one between myself and a deceased US citizen. Isn't that just the most ridiculous thing you have ever seen?
