Hi Guys!! I hope the holidays have been good to everyone so far! It has definitely been a crazy one over here, phewww. Unfortunately, I've not had the chance to get over and work on the Shasta as much as I'd like the past couple of weeks which makes me soooso sad! But we did get one good trip in last week and you may not be able to see it but this one visit really cleaned her up a great deal. We redid all of the sub-flooring as well as reinforcing some of the rotted out floor frames so now at least she's (sort of) safe! Hooray! I've attached a couple of pictures below. I know, if doesn't look like much but it definitely excited me! I'm finally in the process of trying to solidify what the inside will look like which is super fun but kind of scary too. I feel like we're really close to finishing off the insides (since all of the difficult stuff is mostly done) but it's still so hard for me to visualize fully what the inside will end up like. In true "me" form, I guess I'll just wing it and kind of make it up as it goes along...that sounds like a solid plan, right?
Also, I've thrown a couple of new things up in the shop this weekend that are pretty fun! Most notably being a 1970's Polyester Wrap dress with this INSANE pattern, the butterfly collar, the whole thing! The pattern is a strange mix of southwestern print and home office scene???? Ohhhh 70's and your wacky prints! I've seen some doozies in my travels but this one is perhaps the most random I've ever run into, hands down. But strangely enough, the quirky pattern is completely offset with the supppper flattering classic wrap shape and a great weight fabric that literally hugs every curve in all the right places. Just the juxtaposition makes me scratch my head but hey, who says you can't wear a southwestern home office print in day-to-day life?? No one I've ever heard of! (Though I question whether it's actually ever come up before now?....). Anyway, pop on over to the "Store" page above and you can see it, along with the link to the full listing, and check it out in it's full glory!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
