A 17 Dollar Go-To Green Outfit

a thousand blades were flashing at the risin' of the moon

Wearing: Green ruffle top by Design History from a clothing swap; mint floral skirt, $1 in a heap of scrap fabric; black tooled leather briefcase, $10 from a tag sale; rhinestone lion pin, $3 from a tag sale; hammered metal choker, $3 from a tag sale.

A re-working for EBEW. These snaps were taken in my beloved old apartment in Mineola. I was going through a phase where I liked for my hair to look like it was a wig that needed to be combed out. Awesome. (I still fall back on this style sometimes.)

I had been doing a lot of rearranging of the apartment. Just little things, mostly. Like my new Staffordshire lions making friends with my foo dogs (and my skirt with a hole in it because I was still deciding whether I wanted a zipper or buttons or what):

staffordshire meets foo

And my new and improved "usual" corner:

not the way that I do love you

I so very much miss all this "stuff." It's sitting in storage while my husband looks for work and we live in a room at my in-laws' place.

Though it starts with your fist it must end with your mind. (A little Dropkick Murphys fan girling out to set the mood.) Hope you all have a painless St. Pat's. I'm a really good pincher.
