Frye Boots: DSW (clearance)

I have been planning to make this Classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer skirt for three Christmases now, I finally did it! :o)  I have worn it as much as possible this month!!!

I wore it with a plain black long sleeve tee at my Mom's Christmas (with my leopard slippers instead of "real" shoes, hehe)

This was how I wore it to church one Sunday morning.  It was the day we had our Children's Church Christmas Play, so it seemed appropriate.

I also wore it to Opie's school play.

I am more than a bit sad to put it away for a year. :o(  I guess I'll just have to make another one out of the Charlie Brown "Let it Snow" fabric.  Yes, that'll cheer me up! :o)

Belt: Local
Petticoat: Self Made
Boots: DWS (clearance)
Red Coat: Thrifted

It looks like it snowed inside...the insulation was sprayed in our house!!!  Can you tell how excited I am?  In case you can't, I'm reeeeeeeally, really excited!!!!  Opie thinks we're moving in next week.  :o)  We told him it would still be a bit longer, but move in is definitely getting closer.

Rocket and I are looking for the "Kitties" down in the yard. :o)

Dress: Gift from Big Sis
Lace blouse: Ross
Belt: Local
Cameo Ring: New Orleans
Freshwater Pearl Earrings: Dallas
Petticoat: Self Made

I wore this to church, then out to eat, a little bit of shopping, and to the movie theatre.  EVERYWHERE I received compliments from strangers.  Well, I did know the people at church. :o)

Anyways, you know an outfit is good when someone stoppes you on the street.  They don't know you, they don't HAVE to speak to you.  For this reason, if I see someone and think, "Wow, I like her hair," or "What pretty nail polish, or "That person has such a nice smile,"  I make the effort to tell them so.  I once followed a woman around the grocery store so I could "bump into her" and tell her how pretty her smile was.  I made her so happy.  If I were a betting man (as the saying goes), I'd bet she smiled a whole lot more that day. :o)

So, Thank you Big Sis for the beautiful dress!!!


PS:  I woke up the ants living in that stump!  That's what I'm pointing at.
