Good Fences || Bonus Post and Link Up

Here's a quick bonus post since I didn't post in Tuesday and I thought it was quite fitting for the freezing cold air hitting the Eastern US.

These are some pictures of my old backyard after an ice storm in 2008. Everything looked like it was coated in glass! It was so beautiful but SO cold!

I hope the bird who had previously made this his home flew very far south!

Branches of the willow tree snapped under the weight of the ice but the old picket fence held up well.

Every thing was coated in ice. The roof, the clothesline, and each picket of the fence.

~Outfit Post~More Paisley

Lately I've been sewing a lot and finding myself doing random things and thinking, "Oh, I'd like to share that...Hm, that would be fun to post about." So if things from The Wizard of Odds and Ends start popping up on your reading list more often than Tuesday and Friday it's just me letting my fingers go crazy on the keyboard, well, touch screen. Still saving up for a laptop. Anyway, I hope you enjoy what may turn out to be an influx of posts in the next couple of weeks!

In a previous post I had mentioned that I had sewn a few things lately, so I thought I'd do an outfit post instead of making it a Tuesday Cables post like last week. I'm hoping to post a tutorial for this skirt at some point. It's written out, I just didn't plan on making a tutorial when I sewed the skirt so there aren't any pictures!! I'm excited to have to make another one!

My shirt is a little big and the shade doesn't really go with a lot of my clothes, but when I finished sewing this skirt I knew it would match almost perfectly and since I could tuck it in it wouldn't look quite so baggy and shapeless.


I loved the fall hues in the paisley and how the black background made the bright colors pop even more!


This skirt is so comfortable because it's made out of knit fabric. I didn't even have to hem it! This is definitely going to be worn many times in the next few months!
