So glad to still be here.

Yesterday, my little midwestern town was hit with a doozy of a Summer blast. A cold front swooped in from the west, pelting into an existing wave of heat & humidity, creating a perfect storm.

My vintage-glam closet

I’ve got a brand new closet! I’ve got a brand new closet! (Sing those lines to the tune of “I’ve got a golden ticket” from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and you’ll understand the party in my head right now^_^) My closet makeover was such a success I can hardly stop staring at it. … Continue reading
