a birthday outfit and a bracelet

last night s.c. (my husband) and i went out for his 33 birthday, i know he's getting old right?  unfortunately, i have more gray hair than he does, however.  for the occasion, i dressed a little matronly, of course, to emphasize his aging nature.

what i'm wearing...

sweater- thirfted, but from the limited
top- LOFT
skirt- anthropologie, on sale for $9.99
tights and shoes- target
belt- jcrew
pearls- target

i also wore this bracelet

 

i recently purchased some t-shirt yarn from Eclectic Notions, which by the way, is a perfectly priced creative material.  it is perfect to knit or crochet a fun summer scarf with or to use to make jewelry or to use a unique ribbon for gifts or even just to use as a soft bowl filler. it was an impulse buy; i saw it and just had to make something with it.  so...while i ponder what to make...i made this little bracelet to help get my creative juices flowing.  

it was super easy i four little circles of tulle and four from a shiny chiffon.  i folded them in half and strung them onto a small piece of thread; i tugged them around until it created a little flower.  then, i placed the little bead in the center and stiched it onto a piece of t-shirt yarn.  i wrapped it around twice and tied a little knot.  the yarn is stretchy enough to slip on an off without having to undo the knot. there you have it, a dainty braclet.

I got some prints similar to the botanicals from an old Audobon Society calendar being thrown away at my county library. then had them matted and framed at Hobby Lobby for just a few bucks -they look very much like the ones in the Anthro catalog.

Great idea...I will have to start scouting the library.
