This Makes Me Happy

I thought this week I would start a new tradition that I will be calling "This Makes Me Happy". I wanted to share some of my favorite finds both new and old, thrifted or store bought. Today I'm sharing a new red dress my husband bought for me as an early Valentines gift. I've been wanting a red dress for some time, so when I spotted this at H&M for $18 I knew it was a great find. So guess what I'll be wearing this weekend? Although I may be layering it heavily as it's supposed to be very cold this weekend! Bye for now!

Gold Glittered Heart Mobile

My last Valentine tutorial I had some cutout hearts left over so I thought I would come up with another quick decoration, and this is what I came up with. I used the same gold glitter, glue, pink card stock, and baker's twine.

I like to use a Q tip to spread the glue out evenly, so the glitter goes on perfectly.

After they had dried, I glued the twine to the backs of the hearts, let it dry, and I was done.

I made sure to leave a bit of twine at the top and then just used a bit of washi tape to hang it.

Simple and sparkly, just the way I like it! Bye for now!

What I Wore to Dance to Sinatra

 I guess I'm on a black and white (or black and cream) roll, and this week I'm combining it with another skirt I found at H&M on clearance. It goes perfectly with my striped tee and layered look tights. I also wore my polka dot coat again, but without the fur collar. The belt is actually my trusty black belt with the buckle in back.
 Skirt: H&M
Tee, tights, coat and boot: Target
Belt: old
Necklace: gift from Hubby many years ago
Rose ring: 21

 I was listening to Frank Sinatra while I was taking pix, so I thought I would include him in my photo. Sing it Frank!

Winter is Back

 Well, just as we got used to the warm weather, when winter came back with a vengeance! Not that I was surprised, but I can't say I was happy either. But it did make for some great pictures.

 But the most interesting sight was when I went to get the mail, and looked back at the front door, oh my! It looked like something out of Dr. Seuss's the Grinch. 

 I wouldn't want to be standing underneath that when it decides to fall down! Although, I have a feeling that my hubby will knock it down when he shovels out the walkway.

Too bad, cause I'd kind of like to see it fall, just not on somebody! Bye for now!

Happy 15th Birthday!

 Saturday was my daughter's 15th birthday and after we went to the museum, we came home and she opened presents and had cake.  This year I decorated the cake with a fox motif, using my fox pins as a template. I'd never used a frosting tip before, so I was a bit clumsy, but I think it turned out pretty good for my first time!
 She got lots of great gifts and had a ball opening them.

 But I think her favorite gift was the Nintendo 3DS that she got from her dad and I.  Just look at her face as she opened it!

She was stunned to say the least, as she really didn't expect to get it. I'm just glad we could get her something special as she has been doing so well in school this year. She deserved it! Bye for now!
