sonp 2013 commence!!

the summer of no pants [name and possible snark patent pending by marigold] returns!!  for my first item i rescued a remnant of sheer paisley fabric from my first attempt at ...something.  well before the first pic was taken [apparently back in 2011], it was a sort of wrap skirt with a faux leather belt and after tedious serging and hem rolling... i realized i would not have any way to wash it.. ever.  so back to the sewing bin of failed/UFOs it went.

playing in a cemetery

not really playing.  weeding, planting flowers, rolling in the grass, having a day off from work to volunteer, and generally enjoying the most gorgeous day weve had all freakin spring

new plants!

i picked up some new plants at the farmer's market last week!  no more things for the garden.. but im working on indoors now.  i need to get/make some plant hangers so these guys get the appropriate amount of sun without getting chomped on by a curious kitty.

gardening for the mums

for mother's day my mom asked that i come home and do something about her garden.  little did i know, the mint that snuck in 3 years ago with a rhubarb had completely taken over and it was forecast to rain for 4 days in a row.  also she claims to not be able to grow anything, and what does grow gets eaten by deer.  my solution was kill the deer.  but she doesnt like guns.  take up archery.  but the freezer isnt big enough.  well hell.

the outdoor furniture conundrum

lets just start by saying... i'm a sucker for a sale.  i also have a pretty damn good credit score as i pay all my cards on time and in full.  so when i get an email for extended financing, interest free sales.. it piques my curiosity. 

and oh home depot.  you are my new amazon/target/addiction.  i was so tempted to buy a 4 piece patio set with 12 month financing...  but conferred with my house/finance guru  she said maybe i should wait until i have all my other house stuff paid off and just start with something cheap and borrow her subaru to go yardsaling.  sigh.  pragmatism. 

so i bought two unfinished adirondack chairs and assembled and painted one!  [at my hd they were only $39]

liz's laundry

each pic in this post has some kind of weird/silly/stupid/awkward back story.  bear with me.

first pic: worn on a friday.  i take issue with wearing jeans to work and feel that i need to dress them up a bit.  this results in my taking twice as long to dress on friday mornings.  the guys asked if i had a hot date after work.  ... no shitbirds.  just trying to class up the joint.
  • blazer: target
  • top: h&m
  • necklace: some little shop somewhere
  • jeans: gap
