WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 167
Been a busy couple of weeks at work. The Tempest opens tomorrow and we're this close to being done with the costumes. I haven't had a moment to go to the art gallery and take photos of the mew exhibit. A couple of Mondays ago, I checked out the opening after work (because I was still there) and there are some cool pieces. I'll try to drop in this week.
Here's a lovely Asian lady. I think she's from Japan.

$3 RUMMAGE SALE
Stopped by a church rummage sale on Saturday before work and I spent $3.
$1 vintage hat
75 cent vase, it's about 5" tall and has no markings.
25 cent Mar-Crest sugar bowl. The basic black slip was $1. Yeah, to second hand.
Spent a great deal of Saturday afternoon working on this
Figuring out how to sewing the trim onto stretchy fabric. I used pinkish thread and sewed through the flowers, then switched to green and sewed all the leaves, one at a time. The was after I cut all the extra net away. The finished costume will be awesome.

THRIFTED FINDS AND AN OUTFIT
Hands up if you love to rummage through a thrift store!! Here's what I found in Charlotte over Labor Day Weekend.
A vintage tie and a cute 1/2 price swimsuit that fits. I haven't owned a swimsuit in 20 years. Seems pointless as I don't know how to swim, but for $2.25 it would have been rude to leave it.
Orange sweater with metallic yarn. This is a good example of why I buy by fit not size. This sweater is a size 22/24. I usually wear an 18. Don't let sizing drive you crazy.
Jewelry: pocket watch necklace and spider under glass necklace are from Hot Topic. Silver earrings are from who knows, the moonstones are from The Doctor and the fake Greek eyes are from Michael's
Tiny pomegranate on my tiny pomegranate tree
Found lamp base w/$3 shade.
BFF found the lamp base next to the dumpster at her condo and the shade was $3 at Goodwill. The lamp works.
