Fine Fabric Finds

I'm not usually a Walmart shopper, but sometimes one gets lucky. I found this pre-elasticized fabric that almost made itself into this fanciful skirt.  Here, I've paired it with a lace edged underskirt, a thrifted velveteen jacket that I bought in 1986 for $3! Antique buttons added and the shattered lining was replaced; it remains one of my favorite articles of clothing.

  4. It is so wonderful that you have kept something that you got in 1986! I swear the longest I've had something is 5 years maybe. Makes me sad, not having many sentimental pieces.

  9. Angela - Thank you. All your photos were simply stunning. I read that parts of Merlin is filmed in Wales so that explains the beautiful forest and lake scenes:) How wonderful that you have the "insider scoop" on the cast. They do look like they enjoy their work.

  10. Yes Wales is one of the locations,it is funny because we watch and try to see Rory in the episodes he has been in but usually it gets cut and in one episode we only saw his ear Ho Ho! I am thinking of starting a Rory's Ear fan Club!
