Need I mention that the income derived from building cabinet doors brings us closer and closer to earning enough to fill the empty hole of our savings and take us to Washington to see our dearest Kami and Keslie? Woohoo!
We did manage, as the day drew gently to a close, to dress our weary selves in clothes that refreshed us and made us feel quite feminine.
I wore my much loved, creamy pleated skirt, bought in Mexico, paired with a wool tank with a beaded neckline from Dress Barn, and green, crocheted, wrap sweater from the same.
To add to the color and to experiment, I added my newest handmade jewelry piece that will soon be added to our Etsy shop. It is a long necklace of green and brown and gold, with a wooden leaf pendant drifting gently at the end.
Johanna wore her lavendar skirt made from a vintage pattern for our film, "The Photographer, How the Rain Falls" and a gorgeous white blouse with a black ribbon belt from Macy's.
For jewelry, she slipped on her silver heart from Jolie, and her lovely earrings from Kami, not to mention a special bracelet from our cousin, Alyssa.
Grace put on her wonderfully autumnal dress found at a thrift store, it's lovely cotton folds of a rust colored and navy print accented perfectly by her vintage blue beads.
Sarah Anne decided she too would be "feminine" and slipped into a picture in her denim skirt salvaged from an old pair of capris. I love the multiple ruffles! It was so much fun to make this simple skirt, and Sarah Anne was thrilled. She paired it with her pink and blue striped top. Isn't she sweet?
Then, of course, Matthew wanted to join in, for his "Week in Manly Dress". Here he is in his little red polo and green denim shorts.
There never was such a darling boy....
I must sign off, dear friends.... tomorrow is upon us.
Emma and Johanna
