What the Art Teacher Wore #128

 Merry Monday!: I mean, a day without schoolin' is most certainly "merry", amirate?! By the way, this outfit was thrifted (well with the exception of the tights cuz, like, ew). Can you believe that? Okay, so not the Hunter boots cuz that'd be like a miracle. blouse and skirt: thrifted; sweater: vintage, thrifted; boots: Hunter, ebay


Hey, strangers! It feels kinda weird that I've not chatted with you in a coupla days. I mean, that whole blogging daily thing, whilst a wee bit taxing, was so fun. I loved being able to overload you with my backlog posts and giveaway some goodies. But what I especially loved was hearing from so many of you! It's so easy to glance at blogs and move on to the next without dropping a line. I'm toootally guilty of it. But as a person who throws her goofball ideas out to the interwebs, it's nice to hear a response. So, thanks, kids! 

I'm excited about what's in store on this here blog in the next coupla months. I plan to restart the Artsy Book Club (book announcement as well as a book giveaway coming very soon) as well as the Artsy Sewing Along. I do hope y'all will join the funness. Stay tuned for deets. 

Oh! I almost forgot! The winner of the final giveaway is...Rebecca Ednie! Thank y'all so much for playing along. You're the bestest. Until next time, have a great week, kids.

OOooooohhhh, and one last thing. Can we please talk about the satanic elephant that's in the room? Look over to the right of your monitor, wouldya? I'm at "666" followers. Please make it so this isn't the Blog of the Beast, would you kindly? Just a click on the "join this site" would make my day so grand and demonic free. 
Christmas Eve Eve Tuesday: I do believe this here is one of my very first vintage purchases. I picked it up in college whilst attending The Greatest University on the Planet (otherwise known as Indiana University, in case you didn't know). One of my fave all time vintage joints in Bloomington is the Cactus Flower which is were I scored this frock so many years ago. sweater and dress: vintage; belt: Anthropologie
Christmas Eve Wednesday: The hub and I headed to Birmingham, Alabama to visit the fam. We didn't take our lil fur ball with us. She was left to hold down the fort and knock super expensive vintage ornaments off the super expensive vintage tree. Thanks, kitty! dress: DIY, here
Merry Christmas Thursday: It was a super sunny and unusually warm day in B'ham. The perfect day to bust out my brand new Santa Claus suspenders (thank you, Gatlinburg Goodwill! $1.50 well spent, says me). top and suspenders: thrifted; skirt: vintage; tights: Amazon; shoes: Clarks
I got a plethora of exceptionally good gifts for Christmas (the hubs spoiled me with a half dozen dark chocolate bars and Disney Starwars pins. Don't be jelly). Best gift? This Chewbacca cap and hubs-wannabe beard. I'm thinking the beard will be perfect if ever I decide to dress as van Gogh. Although, I gotta tell ya, I was hairball-coughing up faux beard hair for the rest of the day. Merry, cough-cough, Christmas, y'all!

    Cassie, Thank you for all the things you share. I enjoy your newsletter and blog. I use several ideas from you for my art classes up here in the northwest corner of TN. I am scouting for art ideas to begin my new school year that starts in a few days. My school year starts in Jan, and runs through Dec., a unique set up. I am always looking for ideas that will get the students excited about me being back with them and yet hopefully reviews the basics they have forgotten the year I was gone. I come looking on your sites and Mr. E's as my top resources. Again thanks for sharing. Darlene Drummond

    1. Well, I personally love weaving lessons this time of year. In fact, that's my plan for when I return. I'll be posting weaving lessons all during the month of January so be sure to pop by back often God luck!!

  3. guilty, guilty, guilty. I hardly ever respond to blogs but I promise to be better, since you might get to thinking no one is reading and you might quit blogging which would be a terrible thing for us readers to happen. You've inspired me to thrift store shop more often, need to find one in Birmingham, AL, got any ideas? Also I come to visit my daughter in Nashville. Where is a good place there? I'm not your size, don't worry. Have a great vacation!

    1. I'll have to ask my mom-in-law about good ones in B'ham. The estate sales in B'ham are EPIC. You should most def go to those! N'ville has tons of great Goodwills, including an outlet. But what you'd really love is this place called SMART Scrap Made Art. It's in the Berry Hill area. If I think of more, I'll let you know!
