Why the cheesy effect? Because it reminded me of my Meme in her outfit photos. (Not really but it looks like it doesn't it?)
This photo about 90 years old. Don't you think if I put on some stocking and traded out a long sleeve shirt, I could of been sitting next to her in this getup? Those boots are pretty badass. I don't know how to say badass in French for her to understand. (She passed away when I was 4, she would of been 111 if she was still alive today)
If you know my gram you are going OMG THAT'S GRAM. It isn't I swear. It is her mother. I think this was before she had the 15 children. She doesn't look tired.
My vest and skirt are striped and my shirt is pink gingham.
Vest h&m, Skirt and Shirt Target, Shoes Clarks,
I usually take my glasses off for photos if I think of it but today I am wearing contacts!
(I didn't alter my eyes, the filter just made them crazy bright) I can't see as well in contacts and they are weighted so they annoy the crap out of me, but vanity speaks louder than discomfort some days.
I don't think meme would of worn this though.
See my lovely new burn? I burned myself on the iron while I was cooking. (No you didn't read that wrong.) I had just ironed the skirt for our bed and the iron was on the counter next to the stove. I went to stir something on the stove and szzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz went my wrist on the iron. doh. It can match my burn scars on my right hand from when I put my hand on a gas grill when I was little. I still vividly remember doing it, I don't remember going to the hospital or the bandage up to my elbow, or me picking at it constantly(so I hear) I just remember sweeping, calling someone up the driveway and gesturing and putting it down on the grill. I have just tiny small scars. I was very lucky.
P.S I pushed up my glasses that aren't there at least 14 times today already. I've worn them off and on for 18 years but they still give me troubles.
We were lucky yesterday and only got high winds and some rain. The hurricane disipated before it got to us. I've mentioned it before but my connection to hurricanes is they are the reason my family moved to Florida. It was to rebuild after Hurricane Andrew. We bought destroyed houses.
This was the one that we ended up living in. I thought my parents were crazy. We drove up and they said "this is your new house"
I hope every one is OK and damage was minimal from Irene. Hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes all in one year here there has to be some crazy statistic that there was a 1 in a million shot of that happening.
How was your weekend?
