Life Goes On

Went shopping last weekend - at the Dollar Tree & the Goodwill!
Found "straw" fedoras at the Dollar Tree - so I bought 2 - one in natural & the other a nice olive color! Later that weekend saw one, slightly better, at Chico's - and the price was $49!
Found some NEW long sleeved tees from Target at my favorite Goodwill - $30 shirts for $3.99... -
I also found 2 charming 50's (?) fashion oil sketches - sort of Renoir-esque - in lovely white frames, for $2.99 each - put them in the bathroom & hung necklaces from the frames....
Thinking about the garden, and picked up slips of geraniums to root. And Friday, visiting a friend's garden, I picked up some ivy, and a succulent. I am putting them in the potting soil we found up at the beach - (Someone had put it next to the trash, & I grabbed it, as I had been looking for some).
Also found cheap wine glasses at a favorite old ladies church thriftshop (I keep on breaking them!) - Plus a long flimy skirt (very much in fashion) - & a glittery "boat" sweater with anchors on it - to wear for the 4th of July, Memorial Day, and so on up at the boat.And a tee to rescue - with some slight stain I can bleach out - the style & the peach pattern were just too pretty to pass up....And the ladies were just looking at an Indian shawl & obserrving a spot & I said that I could deal with the spot & landed this lovely light wool pashima for $1!!
The outdoor solar light we had bought for $1 at the Dollartree & hubby had afixed to the boat, is still turning itself on! We also put one in the window at home. Good deals for emergencies, I thought....
And hubby found a set of opera CDs for me at the thriftstore - which I am listening to with great pleasure right now....
I go out shopping one weekend, and the next - nada!
Had to video an audition & put on a turquoise knit dress I hadn't worn + a 3/4-length black cotton vest & a turquoise scarf - What a lovely outfit! Also had some stills taken, hopefully to use as new headshots - California weather is so funny - you can wear heavier weights in Spring & Summer, & lighter ones whenever the sun is shining!
I had brightened up my hair myself & done my own makeup - which I received compliments on....Looking forward to seeing the pix/video.....

I really enjoy the local oranges, too!
