Frugal Friday


It is Frugal Friday over at the Shabby Nest, and I thought this was a great opportunity/ excuse for me to be the sentimental fool that I am. As my quarter pint grows out of her cute little clothes, (and the plan is for her to be the last one to wear these clothes:)), some of them are harder to part with than others. I know that I have "been there, done that" on the baby shoe tassel thing, but the clothes.....!!! What is one to do with those sweet, adorable, cuddly little clothes?? The extra tender ones that you just have to keep hugging, and smelling, and don't want to box up and stuff away somewhere? Well, there was this little smocked, embroidered, flowery green dress,....WITH matching shoes........ouch........what a dilemma. You see how I had no choice, right?? Plus,...since I already owned the materials it was practically free (for now,............ we won't travel back in time to when I payed far too much for fringe.:))
Now the only thing that it is missing is the other shoe. I am afraid that I will have to make another tassel to match the first and loop them over the top of the pillow like you would an old pair of ice skates.

Oh, my, GOSH! So I linked to you from Kimba at Shabby Nest, and I'm scrolling down and thinking, hey this girl does some really cute things. . . and I got to one of your wardrobe rehab (way cute, btw!) and I think I KNOW YOU!! I am thinking we were in Alpha Omega together (that would have been like, um, probably 1993 or 1994?) My name was Denice Hartvigsen (now Lingen). Am I crazy, or are we sorority sisters? I'm at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1500843302&ref=name . Sorry -- but your blog was so cute I had to say hello!!

Denice said...

Oops -- I meant Wendy at "Shabby Nest" . . and do I read correctly that she's your sister? How cool is that!?
