There are two things I LOVE About this dress is:
- It’s long sleeves!
- There is a turquise flower… which means I can wear my turquise boots!
This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today! I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊
The bottom half of this dress is seriously quilted!! I’m going to be so warm when I take my kiddos out tonight!!
There is even a pocket – perfect for for keeping a secret candy stash!! 😉
(This dress was half off at an Estate Sale – so it was $1.50)
Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.
The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.
I couldn’t resist posting this handsome picture of my three boys as part of my Vintage Fashion Series!
They are actually dressed as magicians but they look like little vintage gangsters!
Eli looks like a vintage Newsboy 📰
Thank you Goodwill for all pieces of their outfit… Pants, shirts, vests, hats ($2 each)
Here is a super easy recipe for pumpkin spice cake using a box of gf yellow cake mix, a can of pumpkin, 1.5 T pumpkin pie spice, and 1.5 T cinnamon.
…. And baked it for 30 minutes at 350•.
(As with most gf cakes, it’s a heavier, denser cake than none gf)
You can frost it or just serve it with ice cream 😋
Finally! A cool crisp fall day!! 🍁
… And I have a large stock-pot boiling on the stove…
Is this a large pot of stew? Or chili?
I wish – LOL!!
It’s a boiling pot of soapy water filled with old painted-on door hinges!
The kids were rather disappointed when they found out I wasn’t cooking them something to eat.
Here is a before picture – with about 50 years of paint..
Hopefully tomorrow I can show off some shiny vintage hinges hanging on our doors 😊
Simone woke up late this morning….. And was quite jealous that the boys had already played a video game with their father.
I figured I should pull out a mother-daughter activity…. And I had the perfect thing!
A book of Shirley Temple paper dolls and clothes!
We have been enjoying a morning of cutting and dressing up the dolls ❤️
Simone was very excited about the paper dolls because Laura from Little House on the Prairie played with paper dolls too.
