Fun Fact Friday

I am sorry about neglecting my poor blog lately. I have made a goal this week to do better and to do much much better once school starts.

Alright, time for your fun fact.

Every citizen of Kentucky is required by law to take a bath at least once a year.
Yes! I don't think I broke that law this year!

Sad day!

I have been rather sluggish about my crafting this summer. I had all these wonderful things planned but most of them required the use of my Make the Cut software on my Cricut machine

Unfortunately, this... no longer compatible with this.

Sad day!

Antique Books

My parents have been cleaning out their home office and getting rid of all of their old books.

I love old books, so score for me!

Here is what I ended up with:

A set of encyclopedias that were my Mom's when she was little. They are 53 years old.

A collection of Kipling works that was my Grandmother's before she was married. I even found a clipped newspaper article inside the cover.

I mostly just love the big Einstein on the spine of the book.

I can't remember who these came from. Dad? Grandpa? But they are 40 years old!

Re-Purposed Dress

Since I recently gave my closet a much needed overhaul, I have lots of items in a pile to be re-purposed.

Here is a dress that I bought about 5 years ago before I had any kids. Well, this will never fit me again but it is a nice knit material.

So, I cut it off just below the bust and added some elastic to it. (Sorry, I didn't take step by step pictures for this post.)

Then I used the pink shirt to make a really long woven braid and some rosettes.

Then I sew the braid into straps and attached the rosettes.

Ta da!

A cute comfy dress for C.

Complete with a matching headband!
