Pink Leaves

We're going to be working on the blog template today and when I say "we", I mean Sara from SadieOlive. I hope to have some wonderful new links for you to browse!
Just a couple pictures today. I found this set of "Autumn" plates last year around this time and, whatd'yaknow, they're pink and green leaves! Unfortunately, I only have four but they fit so perfect in my scheme that I just had to keep them.

This is my mom's new Fall outfit that she got at Goodwill. I didn't do a very good job with the pictures, but the details on the dress and jacket are amazing - bits of lace and old buttons! So cool!

She only wears skirts and they have to be ankle length so this was perfect. When I was a kid she used to wear blue jeans and had the best outfits of all the moms. My friends and I used to borrow her clothes. She had a princess Leah hairdo and was so artsyfartsy everything she touched was beautiful. These days she's trying to be more modest with her clothing. I'm not quite there yet and probably never will be. I love my jeans!! I'll be the white haired granny in denim and some kind of victorian jacket, and by then it'll be SO out of style but I won't care because I'm a firm believe that if you wear what you feel beautiful in, you're beautiful! That said, I would definitely wear this lacy shabby outfit!

I'm off to start housecleaning and school work with my little ones. Happy Monday! (p.s. Mitch is at school this morning!!)

  8. Polly,

    I like the three columns on your blog. You can put so much on either side. Looks great! And your Mom's outfit looks good also.

  9. The template is looking great!! I'm loving pictures on both sides. And I'm so thrilled to hear that Mitch is back in school. Praise the Lord!

    As for your mom's new outfit, I love it! I'm with you though, I will never give up my jeans or sweats for that matter! But, I appreciate a woman who wants to be more modest. I just wish I was one of them.

    Love,
    Julie

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your mom's outfit. And I'm learning to really like ankle length skirts too, and I'm far from being a granny. There was a time, I think when I didn't own more then one skirt. Things have really changed, and I don't know how it happened. I just like how I feel in long skirts - beautiful.

    Glad you like the braids and overall apron. I noticed you like Anne of Greene Gables too. Good choice.
