+ Meet my creepy side yard.

I sewed this vest from thrifted fabric and a cute 70s’ pattern! It was a very tedious project….lots of pinning, marking, cutting, and fitting. I love the outcome though. I guess I say that every time. These pictures are very tilted because I took it in my slanted/creepy side yard that never gets mowed and has a humungous elk dead head……rotting dead head…..fur/gooey-ness and all. I was on the verge of tossing my, um five guys cajun fries the whole time. Hence the stink face in some of these photos. 
Today’s weather was AMAZING and I took advantage of every minute. Can you believe there are a couple of horses down the street from me….I mean on a busy street in a cramped neighborhood. It is random. Beck and I visited them today, Beck is frightened out of his mind, we tried to feed the baby shetland pony some craisins which he had no desire for. Maybe I will sneak the little guy some apples or carrots.  


  1. wow! you’re incredibly talented then aren’t you?! :) that’s a great vest and a great outfit, for that matter!

    haha love your crooked photos and your crooked-from-the-unmowed-grass creepy side yard. hahah and the sweet company of that elk.

  3. That vest is awesome! Are you a self-taught sewer or did someone teach you? I really want to sew, but have no idea how!

  4. I don’t remember ever looking THAT cute in the 70’s! You have turned up the volume on a great 70’s classic. I still love and wear vests. The only thing missing is a pocket watch!

    Wow! You really made that from scratch?! Haha I am really jealous of your talent. I’ve have tried for years to sew stuff like this, but never could until I found your blog! Thank you so much! Sincerely, Addicted to C&C

  6. If I give you my measurements will I get one too? Also, I could see the little Beckster in a cute vest for his Easter outfit. Are you two going to match? xox

  8. creepy side yard, nothin’. my side yard has a missing fence slat, with an obnoxious barking dog who constantly (no lie) pokes her nose through and barks her face off. i’ll take creepy any day.

  9. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not fail me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually believed you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
