Hi everybody!  I have fun fun FUN news for you all!

I’ve been hinting about a project I’ve been working on that I think you’ll all really love. Well…It’s HERE!  Here’s the dealio: One of our clients at my day job is Goodwill Industries of the Upstate/Midlands South Carolina. I’ve been working hard to help them roll out something pretty special. 🙂

I hereby introduce you to the NEW Good Life Blog! It’s a space for some of the most knowledgeable thrifting and DIY experts in South Carolina to showcase their projects, techniques, tricks, tips, and personal styles, and I hope you’ll check them out.

I decided to celebrate the launch of this awesome new blog with a fun frock!

Lady in reeeeeed (houscoat)!

You’re looking at a comfy red polyester housecoat.

I really didn’t want to actually wear a red polyester housecoat though.  🙂

I made a couple of chops.

Choppy choppy!

Then, I threw my frock on my dress form for a fitting.
