Mellow Yellow…

Perfect color for summer.  Sunny yellow!  It’s actually called “Mellow Yellow”,  by Sally Hansen; their Xtreme line.  It’s so pretty.  Instant happiness!  I painted three coats of this color; no bottom coat, no top coat, and the polished lasted over a week.  That is saying a lot coming from me, since my hands touch water 20 or more times a day, plus I’m out in the garden daily.   Needless to say, my hands take a beating and the polish stayed strong.  I’m thinking if I was easy on my hands I’d probably get well over two weeks on this; sadly,  the world will never know!  😉  The kitty is pretty too, don’t you think?

Upcycle Dress!

I have a dress that I can’t wear in public.  It’s way too low cut and no undergarmet worked, so I wore it as an inside-the-house dress for a couple of years.  Today I decided it needed a new life.  And this is the life I gave it…  A skirt with a pocket!

It started out looking like this…

I cut off the top part and used the two “triangles” as the new pocket!  I sewed the triangles together to give me more fabric.  Then I created the pocket you see.  I wanted it to be just enough space for my iPhone and a lip gloss!
