When I found this little vintage Laura Ashley diamond in the rough, there was no way I was leaving that dress at the thrift store! It was absolutely adorable in every way… except for the length. I hated the length, it just seemed so… wholesome. Like it would just simply be so much cuter if it were shorter. So that was the exact fate of this dress!
I’m happy with it, it looks so much cuter this length. I actually did this rehash right before Christmas and I can’t believe it’s still sitting in the Etsy Shop! So cute.
So I guess I can let you all in on what I have been up to… Let’s just say Winter is my slow time of year. I’m not out doing markets and shows as much as I was during the Spring-Fall months. I miss people. It’s feeling hard for me to stay self motivated at home… all alone… all day. I am currently starting to look for other opportunities for my business. I would like to have an actual storefront, even if it were just a space to rent within another shop. I want to get dressed up and go to work and have other humans to interact with throughout the day. I never thought I would say it but I miss having somewhere to report to. Why should I put makeup on? Why shouldn’t I wear my yoga pants with my gray hoodie and slippers all day? I don’t need to at home but I like doing those things and I miss them. So waaaah waaaah, there you go. I really hope that doesn’t sound very depressed. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I do, and I never take that for granted. I have an amazing husband who is supportive of me beyond what I had ever hoped for in a man. Getting all the kinks worked out and figuring out where I fit in are just issues that don’t work themselves out overnight. I realize that. I’ve never been the most patient but I feel that good things are to come! I’m going to find the perfect place to bring in my lovely collection so that lovely ladies can come in and find their perfect piece. And I’ll actually get to see the joy instead of just hearing about it 🙂
I do have a market coming up though, it’s the 3 Dotters Vintage Market in Pleasant Grove, February 7 from 8 am – 4 pm! Come see me, I’m going to be doing a big sale on coats! This is a big market with lots of awesome vintage vendors, held in the Old Rec Center at 65 E 200 S, well worth the drive!
Back to the machine…
