How many airplanes do you think I could build today?

A couple of weekends ago I went to my first estate sale in years and SCORED on some vintage 1940's pants and 2 pairs of coveralls. I was practically shaking when I tried them on the next day, they fit perfectly!! Seriously, I felt like I re-bought my wardrobe from a previous life! Who knew there was another short, chunky girl out there with a waist!

Last Friday the weather was absolutely beautiful so I decided to dress up a bit for my errands. I threw on my denim coveralls, red white and blue heels & bakelite, wrapped a bandanna around my head and hopped on my 1942 Elgin bike. I felt great. I guess I'm not the only only one who thought I looked ok, I was practically chased down by a very handsome man in a pricy car who offered to take me out. Of course, I declined but it felt good to be noticed again.

I need to remind myself how much better I feel when I take a few extra minutes to get my self dresssed up. It is so hard in the winter when I really do NEED to wear my flannel lined jeans, but thankfully spring is on the way!

I have so much to do today, I went on a massive shopping spree last weekend and have some amazing items to list, lots of SUN DRESSES!
