|Welcome Back, Monday: sweater: ancient thrifted find; dress: anthopologie; belt: made by me; tights: Target: shoes: Urban Outfitters flats made into Mary Janes with leopard print fabric by me...they didn't want to stay on my feets otherwise.|
|Can you believe these shoes? I went in search of flats and found these bad boys on the Urban Outfitters website. I was asked several time is they were some of my DIY shoes!|
Kid: Mrs. Stephens, what is that smell?
Me: I had beans for lunch.
Chorus of Kids: Eeeewwww.
(five minutes later)
Kid: Mrs. Stephens, can I have some more green paint?
Me: Sure. (half empty bottle of paint makes farty noise).
Kid Across the Room: (whispering) Ew, did you hear that? Must have been those beans. I feel sorry for the kids at that table.
I get no respect, I tell ya.
|Tinga Tinga painting from Tanzania. Don't you love this? Tinga Tinga is the name of artwork made in something called the Tinga Tinga Cooperative in Tanzania. The co-op was created by the family of a man named Edward Tingatinga who painted in this style back in the 1960's. Artists in the co-op today are strongly influenced by his style.|
In other less gassy news, I really enjoyed matching my outfits with masterpieces as I did in this post, so I thought I'd give it another go. It's been a lot of fun as I would have never stumbled upon the artwork above otherwise. I do hope you enjoy...
And might I make a polite recommendation....
The next time you decide to enjoy some lovely beans for lunch, have it with a side of Bean-o. Just sayin.
