Chicken soup is good for the soul:

This week I've been a bit down, so I headed to (one of) the local goodwill. The plate used to have a matching Tea cup for holding make up brushes and such. It, ahem. broke in the unfortunate tea cup massacre of 2012. (I kid, my pup knocked it down) so I needed to replace it. This chicken soup bowl/cup/drinkthing (scientific name) now holds the Make up, and the brushes. perfect.
Thrifting it the fastest way to cheer me up.

Have a beautiful day darlings.

This week I've been in the process of planing some projects, so I don't have one to share quite yet. BUT! I have had an amazing week.

Yesterday, I went to the Denver aquarium to watch my "special interest" dive with the sharks. I got there and a stranger gave me free entry, just randomly decided to give me a wristband he already paid for. How nice?!
Anyways, enjoy:

Then the sir and I made our way to speedway races, the carts hit 50 mph! After that we stopped and got some amazing pizza and I found this beauty of a game.
Can you tell I'm a sucker for Cap? I also saw the Avengers this week, and spent sometime at Gold Camp for a friends birthday.
Have a good week Dollfaces!

Mom Shorts = Pockets that hold, EVERYTHING.

The past few weeks I have not had very many projects going on, but I did get two things done. Pillow's and Mom shorts.

First I went to the fabric store (Joanne's) and bought some cute vintage style fabric pieces.

(check out that denim couch!) I took them, cut them in half (saving the rest for later) and made three pillows. (does any one else use their couch as a pin cushion? No? Just me?)

Tada! Easy, easy, easy.

This next project was inspired by Sierrashima_  fellow instagrammer, she's a doll check her out.
I went to the Salvation Army and got some mom jeans (no before pic sorry) and cut them off, rolled them up and sewed some lace onto the pocket. SO EASY.

I paired them with a white tee and this gem that I got thrifting from YEARS ago. 


XX Have a stunning week!
