In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Delightful and well written as usual, Patrice. My only complaint might be that it didn't come with a 'don't read and drink' advisory...I burst out laughing and almost blew mint tea out my nose and all over the screen and keyboard before I could get myself under control.C'mon...let's try one of those chicken wire dresses...they'd be so versatile...in spring we could go as topiaries! And just think of the holiday season possibilities!BWAAAAA HA-HA-HAAAAAAA! Congrats on another great writing gig! You go girl!A McSp
check out the blog New Dress A Day...this young lady challenged herself to making a new clothing item every day for a year spending only $1.00 per day....she is about 2/3 of the year thru and is doing a really bang-up job...gives this old rural gal some ideas on how to frugally redo the old wardrobe collection on the cheap.
Wow. Just wow. I feel the need to sew some useful clothes now.
Fun column, Patrice. My favorite new quote: "hasty mending with duct tape." Now THAT is Rural Chic of the highest order. Jennifer
Anonymous--Thanks for the post about "New Dress A Day!" That girl is awesome! What an interesting project.Patrice--Great column as usual. Perhaps one day, fashion and farming can peacefully coexist. :)
