I love plaid. Last fall I picked up a this awesome plaid shirt. I had been looking for a plaid shirt for a LONG time, but I wasn't interested in a tiny shrunken style shirt - they didn't fit usually fit, were too short, and gaped. In the end I found this awesome orange and […]

Way back in July I attended the 40+ Blogger Meet-up in Vancouver. Then there was camping vacation, work deadlines, storms, power outages (32 hours), family funerals, school starting, sick husband, sick kid, sick me, and then sick me again with pneumonia... and all of a sudden it is Halloween. Seems odd to be posting pictures […]

Like many of you I am busy getting ready for Christmas.  As usual, I am trying to avoid the mall as much as possible. I am trying to buy local, buy used, upcycle or DIY. I will admit to making a few visits to the LEGO store and Marshalls. But most of our Christmas is more of the […]

Back in late February I popped into a vintage store on Main street and found this vintage skirt calling my name. It is a 60's, wool, hound- tooth, expertly home sewn, lined skirt. It was orange! It fit me like a second skin. It was in perfect condition. It was $40. It was a no-brainer purchase. […]

This green tweet Talbots blazer was a recent consignment store steal. It was in the clearance section of the store and was the grand total of $12!! It is like-new condition. I suspect the original owner only wore it once or twice.  I might have the sleeves shortened, or switch around the button, but I figure […]

In November I committed to buy Nothing New through the monthand possibly through December too. If I could. And I succeeded in not buying anything for my wardrobe through November. My mother did purchase me a Christmas gift in November (that awesome leather moto jacket), which arrived in early December. But I did not purchase […]
