Mending and Answering

I've been working on my mending/alterations pile...
Are you proud of me? :o)

I pulled this old yard sale skirt out that I had forgotten about. I had almost convinced myself that I could wear it as-is, bohemian style...when I remembered that I whacked a chunk out a long time ago for a project. Bummer. 
But no worries! I just cut it off and hemmed it up-new skirt!

'Cause I needed a another skirt. :o)

Yay for small fixes. :o)

So, off-topic, thanks for the sweet comments about the last post! I'm flattered that some of you thought I was clever enough to think of it on my own, but I've seen a couple of posts like that before and I thought it would be fun to try! There were so many questions that I thought I would just answer them in a post.

Q: 6 am????
A: While I do prefer mornings to late-nights, 6 am is totally not my idea. Paige has always been an early riser. Someday she'll be a teenager and I'll get revenge! :O)

Q:Who's the baby?
A: That's a little boy I watch on the weekdays. I go over to a friend's house to watch her two grand kids. That's where the beautiful view at 11am is from! I love seeing that water every morning.

Q: Will you cook for me??
A: Oh my goodness, I am so excited that I've fooled you into thinking I can cook! Success, haha! But really. It's just spinach, strawberries, chopped walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette; chicken sauteed in olive oil; halved red potatoes with olive oil, dried onion flakes and Johnny's seasoning. Couldn't be easier.

Q: What are you growing?
A: We're working on a small little garden in our back yard, hopefully to be a large garden eventually. So far we have Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, tomatoes and onions. I kill things (it's bad.) so wish me luck!!

Q: What work book is your daughter using?
A: The one in the photo is a Spectrum Math (grade 1) book that we picked up at a bookstore. We plan to home school Paige but she's still very young, so it's kind of just fun learning at this point. :O)

Q: Where are your 3pm shoes from?
A: I got those at a cheesy little store in a mall called "Papaya". I wear them every day! :o)

I hope that clears everything up! :o)

Everyone have a delightful weekend!!


  1. You made me smile! I do the same, cut bits off things and then forget about it! :0 xx

  2. I have been working on my alterations pile also...a bunch of dresses that i'm converting to skirts either because they are too short or not in style anymore:)

  3. I have an early riser too. Which is why I was awake at promptly 6:00 on a Saturday morning. He's only 3, but I swear he can tell time. It's ALWAYS between 5:58 and 6:04.

    Disney, I've been reading for a while but I don't think I've posted before. I really like your style, but I can't pull off a skirt. I always feel really short and weird in them and I never know what to wear on top. Do you think you could please put together a post with tips on wearing those fabulous skirts? I know I'm not the only one with this problem, and I have major skirt envy. :) I would be forever grateful!

  4. I SO need to get to my alterations pile. I did a wee bit this week, but there is so much more... and I may wind up re-doing some of what I did this week. It's just not *quite* right, you know?

  5. How cool that you plan to home school your daughter! My daughter is three and we plan on the same thing. My husband is a pastor as well so it's kind neat to see in what ways we are similar. I guess that's the fun of blogging right?

  6. Cute post! Skirt is cute too ~


  7. Cute post! Skirt is cute too ~

    Growing strawberries in your garden is so pretty! :)

  9. Looking beautiful as usual my dear! Love the skirt on you :)

  10. Gah, I love your blog!! You make such wonderful things!!

  11. Hi Disney!

    I've been enjoying your blog for a while and haven't commented, but after reading this post I can't resist adding a word of encouragement. ;-)

    Home schooling your little sweetie is one of the best things you could do for her! Educational benefits aside, the relationships it builds in your family and the opportunity to disciple your daughter in Christ are so precious! I know the blessings firsthand - I was home schooled all the way through, and I will be starting with my own little ones soon.

    BTW, your outfit is adorable too - thanks as always for sharing!

  12. I really love your blog, and I really look forward to it every time I see a new post on my feed. Thanks for all your clever ideas. Your blog really brightens my days when I am feeling low. Thanks. God bless you.

  13. I am new to your blog, but it always makes me smile. I found it from your pleated purse tutorial which I HAD to try. You can see it on my blog here...

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. I just might have to visit my thrift store pretty soon. The skirt looks great!

  15. You are so darling. Love this skirt on you. It looks so fresh and perfect for warm weather.

  16. Where are you Disney ? :( Its been 8 days! Missing your posts :D

  17. I am so happy you are going to homeschool paige.I was homeschooled the whole way though( i just graduated this spring) I loved every minute of it!
