Much Love Monday: Polka Dots and Ruffles

Sweater and shirt: Thrift
Earrings: Gift 
Belt: Plato's Closet
Hairclips: Dollar Jewelry Store
Painting: Mine (print available here)
What I'm loving today:
  • Ruffles on this green sweater and polka-dot blouse.
  • A quick up-do when I'm running late.
  • Decorative clips--my new favorite accessory.
  • Hearing my grandma's voice as she reads. She's staying with us for a few days to give my parents a little break. She doesn't talk much anymore so hearing her read-aloud is extra special and heartwarming.
  • That my daughter attempted sewing while I was out. Now I know my suspicions were right, she does want to learn to sew!
  • I've been able to organize my way through three more drawers and a box.
  • That today is the beginning of a new week.
What are you loving today?
