1940s Green Suit with Burgundy and More


Isn't this suit a dream? Not only that but it's a shade of green that I have been seeking out and now finally have. My goal is to have a suit in every color someday but until then my wardrobe is quite full. For this wearing, I chose a deep wine red and cream accents. I am really happy with this look and the hat has a surprise, I was able to find an advertisement match! The ad has theirs in green and has more netting but it is the same shape and style as mine. I am pumped about that. Hey, what can I say, it's the little things that get me going and right now that's all I got. 

My sweetheart is deployed. This is my first time dealing with a deployed sweetheart and I am a bit lonely, a bit worried (o.k., a lot worried) and facing a bit of depression here and there. Sometimes I do really well and go about my day and other times I just want to slump in front of the TV. Some days it is hard to get motivated. I can't hide it. Some of you have probably noticed that I don't smile a whole lot in my photos and that's because it's hard to do so. On top of that, this time of year is always a bit hard on me because it's about the time my mom passed away and another reminder that I have one less loved one near me. I'm already planning on sending him lots of letters and other care packages - it's something to look forward to. I'm also planning on lots of sewing to keep my mind occupied. My goal is to actually empty out my fabric stash to zero or else super close to it. I have already knocked out two large pieces of fabric which is nice. I know I will be fine but I feel it will be a long road ahead. I hope and pray he comes home safe and that when he does there will be a big party and chances are he will come home to find me with a whole new wardrobe. If I go quiet on here or a long time, know that I am still around. If there are all of a sudden LOTS of posts on here, I am trying to keep as busy as possible. If I drag my feet in answering emails and such know that I read each and every one and do appreciate each and every one as well. Thank you for all the love and support.
