Hey guys, TGIF! I’ve been MIA for a few d/t one, not sleeping
at all well and therefore being a grouch all day, and two, well, just see reason one. I’m in a great mood today, however, after thrifting a bit and scoring some cute lace vintage curtains which I hung in my craft room and, I’m super excited about this, a vintage macrame kit. I’ve seen a lot of cute wall hangings lately and wanted to try my own and I might just use that macrame kit for it. Date night tonight; we’re seeing Elysium and I’m eating lots of popcorn. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo Jessica

Hey ya’ll! Today I’m working on items for my Etsy shop and planning stuff for my sister’s Bachelorette party! I’m also waiting on some good news hopefully with a potential J.O.B! I’ve been unemployed for a whole year now and I think it’s time to get back though I do love being a stay at home wife for the time being. Got to stay busy to keep from going as my friend says cray-cray. Hope you’re enjoying your week, xox Jessica

Have you had any fun thrifting lately?
Oh my gosh, we’re back! We had the best vacation ever! I really mean Ever! The beach in St. Pete is completely gorgeous; I couldn’t get enough. I could never get enough, unless of course we moved there;) (hint hint hubby). I have lots of pictures to sort through and I can’t wait to post them. We stopped in New Orleans for 2 nights on our drive and I loved it. What a wild place. We spent 6 amazing days with family, the Rutherford side, and had the best time together. We stayed in a charming condo directly on the beach and had balcony and bedroom views of the beach. We lived and breathed beach every day and I realized that that’s where we love to be the most. There is nothing more peaceful, inspiring and grounding than walking along barefoot on the sand and being near the endless water.
Well I have lots of cleaning, laundry and organizing to do today. Hope you all had a great week and didn’t miss me too much, haha! Here’s a few pics of my thrifted shirt (and my hair is getting so long I can’t believe it!) See you soon, Jess Sleeveless shirt: thrifted
DIY T-shirt Scarf
Since it’s fall and since I love to rock a scarf with just about everything I thought it was time to do this much-pinterested DIY. After consulting my pin from this lovely blog scarf tutorial, I grabbed a shirt from my thrift pile and started cutting and voiala! Here’s the before and after pics–sorry about the no-makeup. This was pretty much just a practice run–next time I’ll make a much prettier scarf and maybe even add some beads!
Materials: old tee + scissors
