Vintage Love: ootd

     Being home means that I'm finally able to bring all the vintage dresses from my collection out of storage!  I've missed all my vintage pieces and I've spent a couple of weeks going through them, hand washing and ironing them so I can start wearing them again.  I thought I'd start with this little lovely.  It belonged to my grandmother, is handmade, and in need of a lot of repair even though I can see it's been repaired by hand before.  I love the bright colors and all the collar and pocket flaps, but it's a little bit to big for my current frame.  No plans to alter it though; I think I'll grow into it instead ;D
    This morning my walk was more about business than anything else.  We spent several hours yesterday cleaning the brush, thorn trees, and trash out of our old greenhouse.  We're getting ready to strip it and rebuild it.  I wasn't quite ready to cut this sapling behind me, and I know the weeds are a nuisance, but when they have little dried flowers on them like these do I'm reluctant to rip them out. It will have to be done eventually though and it's all pretty exciting stuff.  I'm so ready to start some seedlings for spring veggies and flowers.  Once this little project is done, we'll start work on a chicken house so we can get some hens for fresh eggs.  If I haven't said it before (and I know I have) it is So Good to Be Home!
