GREETINGS FORM THE FROZEN NORTH............


I mean "SOUTH"

It's cold again down in South Georgia. In the mid 20's overnight. Stop laughing at me, People of Canada and Northern Europe. We are not used to cold here, heck, next week it'll probably be in the 70's.


Here's what I'm wearing indoors.

 Blue mohair cardigan, long black dress with a swirl design, tall boots and tights. Everything was thrifted or a gifted (the boots). Heck a lot of things in the photo where second hand: the rug, curtains and jewelry box (behind me) The lamp was from Target, duvet cover was on sale at Anthropology, and the little  chest is from IKEA.


 Here's a better shot of my outfit. The swirl design has about 4 different colors so it's easy to wear a matching sweater or jacket. When it's really cold, I tend to only wear earrings. Bracelets and necklaces make me cold, rings are kind of hard to wear with gloves. The poster behind me is from the 90's and it was fun to see the look on the framers face when I took it to get framed. Soundgarden and Pearl Jam.....yeah!!!!!

More second hand in this photo: bookcase, from a lot at an auction, the green shutters (which are hiding a water) second hand store and they were already painted that color.

Speaking of the cold.............


 not a big fan. What I'll be wearing the walk the 3 blocks to work. All this is thrifted, too. My $10 Jones New York wool overcoat, white mohair shawl( bought at a stuff a bag for $5 rummage sale) Russian hat (also from a rummage sale) my sister in law gave me the gloves for Christmas years ago.


                      STAY WARM
