Sheet music wreath

I finally got around to making a wreath out of sheet music for over our piano. I'm so happy with how it turned out!

I found a bunch of old sheet music at random garage and estate sales.

I basically just formed the sheets into cones, used scotch tape to secure them, then hot-glued them to a foam wreath form.

For the top/second layer, I cut the music sheets in half and rolled those into cones.

Did some shopping recently...

Well, it's been quite some time since updating this blog, so I figured I should. And what better way than to show all the shopping I've done lately.

I've been traveling more for work lately, and since I typically wear jeans to work, I needed some "fancier' clothes for work meetings. Plus I needed some summer stuff and other random items, of course!

And, just to be clear, this wasn't all in one shopping trip lol.

First, this awesome dress I found on clearance at Target. It had two different clearance prices on it; one was $30 and one was $20. I decided to ask the people at the fitting rooms to scan it to find out how much it actually was. $10! Um, yes please! It was a little big, but I had my mom take in a few areas and now it fits like a glove. I bought a fun little skinny belt to go with it and I love the pockets!

I found this skirt on clearance at Ann Taylor Loft. It also has fun pockets. It's sort of a shimmery linen.

in this color, soft grey

I picked up this little marc ecko clutch at TJMaxx, but in a butter yellow color

And then I decided that it's been a few years since I bought a new bikini so I bought one from Victoria's Secret.

I got this pattern with this top...

and same zebra pattern, but this type of bottom...

Oh, and this purse...

I also picked up some fun necklaces at Forever 21 and Francesca's Collections.

And I think that's about it...for now :o)
