Bringing Back the Brooch

BBB

I always fall for the gorgeous brooches during my treasure hunting adventures but then I end up talking myself out of bringing them home knowing I am not really a brooch wearing gal.

Well guess what??? New day…New dawn!

In fact I am a brooch wearing gal…just in a modified way. In a statement necklace kind of way.

Here is my latest fashion DIY project. Take one spectacular brooch and one complimentary necklace and you have just created a unique one of a kind “So You” statement necklace.

Voila!

It’s 127 time…Show & Tell Day One

Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!

If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!

Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww!  I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…

One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…

Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN

 

 

Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!

Sliding in the with just a few hours to spare this month is July’s Taking it to the Streets MuuMuu of the Month!

Straight from the streets of ATL…really straight from the trails of the ATL BeltLine.

A bike, a muumuu and some public art is all a girl really needs on an amazing summer day!

Flower Power…

Kapow!!!  That’s the sound of Flower Power with a Punch…

This Flower Power Punch I speak of is not a refreshment nor is it your soft dainty floral frock where you have visions of proper ladies lunching at a garden party but more of a rowdy Andy Warhol crowd at an amplified pop art gallery opening.

I am sooo crazy in love with my vintage Neiman Marcus palazzo pants from my must stop shop, Swift and Faire, at the fashion tent during the Brimfield show. These crazy cool ladies always have an amazing curated collection of must have’s and these were for sure one of them this round!

Field of Dreams…

Today was the opening day at Brimfield and man did I get my game on! I was locked and loaded with my fanny pack, comfy boots and the will for treasure!

7 hours, 3 disco shirts, 2 dresses, 2 patches and a bounty of jewelry later I find myself wiped out and ready of bed!

Nite Nite,

JSY

smashing success…

okay…so I know it’s still early to call it but I must say switching up how we “do” Brimfield this time is tracking to be pretty fantastic!

Coming in early for the very curated very delightful textile show was a huge win. It had a slightly different vibe than the fields that open up tomorrow but still a great time with treasures to be found in both goods and in people (which is one of my all time favorite things about this show). We also had a chance to hit up some of the local shops as well as exploring nearby towns.
