Bringing Out My Skirts

I love my skirts!  I used to wear them every day, but over the years gained some weight.  Now that I'm back to the gym, and watching what I put into my body, I'm back into a few of my skirts.

I have about 3 "hippie" skirts and love them all.  My mother mailed me this one years ago.  I just love it!  My 10 year-old daughter wants one just like it.  

I am working with another farmgirl, on ordering a jean's skirt she is making.  It gives me more motivation to stay in shape and get down a few more sizes.  I know I'll feel a lot better too.

Don't-cha love my slippers? Ha ha ha!

Good for you on the farmer's market. I am gearing myself for the fall market. Knitting, sewing and making preserves. Good job with weight lose!

Congrats on getting in shape! I love that too, getting into old clothes, now some of those are getting loose! Good job on your sales too! I'm sure people will spread word of mouth too :)

That's great! Glad you sold some stuff! I don't wear skirts at all. I'm too active to do that! LOL!

Sounds like you did GREAT at the market! I do wish the market I have been selling at would pick up, or I had a better car to make it to the one a little further away. Here, everyone is afraid to turn loose of a penny.
Beautiful skirt! Takes me back a ways, lol.
