Feeling Groovy & Thank You, Carol!

P1010023

I am feeling back in the groove of things now that my computer is fixed – AGAIN! So what does a girl do when the gray box is not working? Well, she whips up a peasant top!

The little vintage pin, a recent find for $2.00, looks sweet against the…

P1010019

… cute little summer print that I found awhile back. I decided to make a different style peasant top – one with a half sleeve and a bell edge. Takes me back to the days of watching Goldie Hawn on Laugh In. For you younger readers, you may want to google this! *wink* Kind of makes me want to jump up and do a little go-go dance! Now if only I had my white patent leather boots that I once sported with my chunky white patent leather watch. Takes me back to the ‘60’s…..

Miss Molly is sporting the new blouse. She “cracks” up when she gets to model! Better her than I!

P1010012 Lastly, I am one LUCKY CHICKIE for having won sweet Carol’s giveaway!! Carol was having a lovely giveaway for the precious bunny plate below. Her box arrived yesterday and enclosed was not only the adorable little plate, but some sweet treats from my favorite store, Trader Joe’s. How did Carol know I LOVE gummy candy and jelly beans? But sweeter yet is how the plate was wrapped so delicately to match Carol’s handmade card. Carol paints the most beautiful water color pictures!

P1010017 Thank you so very, very much, Carol! I will cherish this forever!

Certainly made me feel Groovy and that's one of my best and favorite oldie songs from my teens. The pin and hat really look great with that print. I would wear it!

Oh, Becky! The blouse is so pretty. It almost has a linen look to it. Your only problem is if Kim sees it! She'll send her sweet Maggie all the way from FLA to confiscate it!

Becky, I love your top. So adorable!! I used to have a pin almost identical to yours. I used to have a pair of those white boots too. Loved to watch Laugh-In. Your plate you won is the cutest thing yet. You are one lucky gal. I am another lucky gal too, because I have enjoyed your sweet heart pillow so very much. Have a wonderful Easter! Love & blessings from NC!

Nancy said...

How cute is that top! and that vintage pin isn't to bad either! Happy Easter.

Shelia said...

Congratulations on your win. The little plate is so sweet and candy is always wonderful.
Now I love your cute top. I remember 'Laugh In' and the mini dresses they wore weren't much longer than your top! You did a great job on it.
Happy Easter and be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Pondside said...

Blogger was acting up last night, and my comment wouldn't post, so I had to come back to tell you that your little peasant top is very sweet. That brooch is the icing on the cake.
I well remember go-go boots, poor boy sweaters and spiky eyelashes, a mile long!.....to go with the peasant top.

Claudia said...

I love your little top - and I don't have to google Laugh in and Goldie Hawn! I remember it all vividly.

Your giveaway win is lovely.

Have a wonderful Easter

Paula said...

I remember go go boots! Wore them until there was no heel left! Your blouse is so so sweet and congrats on your win! Wow what an awesome giveaway.

You posed the question, "what have we been up to lately?"

Well I am here with my mother who is in the last stages of a terminal disease, caring for her,while she naps, I am making some hearts for Jack to send to Daisy Cottage. You inspired me, as your blog is always such a creative inspiration.

May you have a blessed Easter, and on this good Friday may we not forget the price that was paid for our salvation.

In Christ love ~ Paula

Angela said...

LOVE Laugh-In and Goldie Hawn. Great top. Why can't they make cute peasant tops today? If I liked to sew clothes I'd have one for every day of the week. Would you share the pattern you used...just in case? I was scrolling through your blog and your photos are gorgeous.

Connie said...

I love the top you made. So summery lookin! I also adore the bunny plate you received. I'm sure you will cherish it.
