I get so many compliments on this top. I bought this top at a yard sale for fifty cent. All of the needle work is hand done and the top and sleeves are done on a machine. Someone was selling off grandmas handi work. I just love the traditional Mexican style clothing.
Tonight is opening night for Nikki's Easter pageant. I can't wait to see it! She has been working so hard, so I am sure that her hard work will pay off.
Yesterday Nikki and hit a thrift store to buy a few things that she needed for the pageant. I ended up finding 4 old hat pin's! Nikki for this box that she wanted, so I bought it and gave it to Ryan to give to Nikki on her birthday. I just love finding deals at thrift stores!
Now my question is... how to use the hat pins. I have done some research on them and I know they are long because the women use to use them to hold their hair to the hat. I am wondering If I can use the pins without a hat? I am also wondering where I can find some hats like they had in the 20's. HMMM. I actually thought about looking to see if they made a pattern for those hats and then actually making myself one. Then the thought left me. I don't have time to sew for myself.
Nikki's boyfriend, Chris, is talking to a recruiter. The sad reality of his life is that he does not have a lot of options left. Rusty and I sat down and talked to Chris, and we just laid everything out for him. The sad reality is that no one cares that he is homeless in high school. It is up to Chris to make a name and a life for himself. I am glad that he listened to some of what we had to say. So Chris is looking into going into the military get some sort of job skills, and then going to college once he gets out of the service.
My stacks of laundry are calling me. I also have to go buy something to cook for dinner. I have often wondered why I buy food. All that happens is that we eat the food, poop and then use toilet paper. Anyway, I have another day waiting to greet me.
