did you ever know that you're my hero

song of the day: 'wind beneath my wings' by bette midler
so i got the honor of guest blogging on clyde's rebirth today! as nerve wracking as it was, it was also pretty fun. so please, do me some props by heading over there and reading what i had to say. it was fairly insightful. and anyway, who doesn't want a double dose of me???
this outfit is kind of an extension of what i had to say over at merl's, but i'll just be specific about this.
what do you think about my flower brooch? adorable, right? well, i asked a while back if any of you had handmade stuff that i could sell in my shop. lo and behold the lovely ana spoke up about her handknit accessories. oh my, i am so glad she did! i love everything that she sent me. and really these sweet little flowers stole my heart right away. and it matched my dress perfectly. awesome! later on, i'll show you some of the gorgeous cowl scarves that she does, but for now it is just too darn hot. i don't think she'd want me to sweat in her beautiful creations. anyways, if you don't know her, please take the time to get to know her. she's a doll! ok, so i guess i should tell you where to steer your computer (so silly of me). her blog is toil & trouble and her etsy store is of the same name.
ok, so i know i've told you to go all traipsing about the internets today, but believe me, it'll be worth your while :) have a great friday!!!!

I love this dress, and the flower looks just perfect with it! Plus, I just adore that you paired those simple, comfy-looking oxfords with the dress.

If you still need handmade things for your shop I make bottle cap earrings if you're interested. They are fun because they're made from caps I've collected on my travels and most of them are microbrews with awesome designs. If you're interested I could send you a picture of them or a sample.

Your brooch is the perfect addition to this outfit, I swear the dress and brooch were made for each other. Or you made them for each other. Whatever the case I love this!
