Most Fabulous Scarf!

Somehow I was out of the loop and just found out about I decided to browse scarves, really because I needed a new one that was just plain different from everyone elses.. Well I found mine!!! From That Funky Boutique

Twilight. It is a felted navy rose scarf, made from recycled sweaters.. So many people have stopped me and asked where I had got it or they have made complimentary remarks about it.. It cost 35 bucks, I know a little high for me, but so worth it.. I hate to be too cheap when someone handmakes something. That time and effort has to cost something..

She makes new ones daily and they seem to sell out pretty fast.. Right now there is a beautiful gray one that would match almost any winter coat...Enjoy looking at her beautifully unique scarves..

Chiffon Rose Embellishment On Thrift Store Finds

Embellished cardigans are big this fall and winter..
They can also be super pricey..
How can you be in style and not break your budget..
Create your own one of a kind cardigan!
We are doing chiffon roses for ours, ours being me and my 11year old and 9 year old daughters..
We find a cardigan we love and "jazz it up" to make it our own couture style.
I found a great DIY for these roses from Calamity Kim's blog .
What other ways can you think of to make your clothing one of a kind.??

Frosted Flower Cardigan from Downeast Basics.. Fall and Winter Must Have

I saw this and it was a Must Have as soon as I laid eyes on it..
This is a new cardigan from Downeast Basics.
It comes in 2 colors, Glacier Gray (shown) and Graphite Blue (which I ordered).
They are $34.99 and I have a feeling they will sell out super quick!!
I would have gotten both, but couldn't justify 70 bucks for two sweaters, being the cheap o that I am...

Vintage Purse! What a Find! One of a Kind!

For those of you who love one of a kind items.
This post is for you..
I love to own things that no one else has..
Today's find was like striking it rich..
This gorgeous blue glass beaded evening bag from the 40' or 50's..
It was made by K&G Charlet Paris and New York and I would bet my garden it has never been used..
It still had some tissue paper in the bottom and the condition is unbelievable..
How much would you think this cost?
It cost me TWELVE dollars..
So go out in your town or a neighboring town, hit some of your thrift or antique stores and take time looking, because you never know what wonderful one of a kind thing you may find..
