Last day of June

It is hard to believe that June is over.

So as you all know I have been carrying a different purse each month and for this summer I decided to just carry my Disney purse I bought while I was at Disney World last October.

I really like this purse

I friend of mine was at Disney last week and I had her buy my this Disney purse

I was at the $1.00 tree and found these.

I am going to see if the shoe store has a black pair. I know that Orthaheel has a website, so if I can’t find a black pair, I will order a pair online. Which will be okay since I know how the sandal fits. I usually don’t like ordering shoes online because just like bras, each brand has it own “system” for sizing.

Bat~FREE day

No bat this morning ~ so that’s good.

Today’s Outfit:

Brownish and tealish dress. I don’t wear this dress as much as I should.

I changed these clip earrings to pierce ones and I love how closely the colours match the dress.

Bat!

My morning started off with a bang! This morning when I was walking into my office I notice this little brown blob by the door. It was a BAT!!!!

Called the maintenance guy who called the TWR guy (Tennessee Wild life Resources) who removed the bat. That was about a 30 min wait.

What a way to start the morning.

Love the Community Chest Thrift Store

Friday I went to the Community Chest Thrift Store where all of the clothing there are a $1.00 and I bought 8 men’s shirts. $8.00 can’t beat that.

I tried each on to make sure the shirt would fit over the “girls” and I bought all the crazy and wild looking tropical shirts there were.

I washed and ironed the shirts first then I cut off the sleeves and so far I have 2 done.

The shirts with long sleeves I am going to try to cut and sew so that the sleeves can be used as the tie.

Instead of using a tie on the short sleeve shirts, I used a scarf. The long scarf is perfect length; and instead of tying to the side I used the front. So much easier to get on and off.

I love it when a craft project turns out great.

I am going to go back next week and buy up some more to make a sell at the craft fairs I go to.

Today’s Outfit:
I must say, this is a really cute outfit.
