Anyway, I just got my first listing up there as a trial run. Hopefully it goes well because I really like their easy to use format and classy layout! And, its easy to get on the front page, all you have to do is list something. Here I am:
Anyways, I'm off to the beach for the weekend two of my favorite people ever, Wren and Shawn, so I'll be back with photos on Sunday! Have a lovely weekend!

In celebration, I listed two lovely new summer dresses at Green Violet Vintage.
And, lest I forget about my friends on the other side of the old equator, I'm also listing this fabulous wool cape!

Oh, bonus Make my Monday thought! Today I discovered Pioneer Woman. Ok, ok, I'm sure I'm the last person on the planet to add this to her blog roll. Don't laugh! But just in case you are as out of the interwebs loop as I am, you must check out her site. She has all sorts of amazing photoshop tutorials that were written for photoshop dummies like myself. I can't wait to have 3 free seconds (or days) in which to try and figure these all out!
So, anyways, what's making your Monday?

Now I'm cleaning like a mad woman and trying to get my Etsy stash under control. I have so many vintage clothes now that they are bursting out of every corner of my house. Anyone out there have any organization suggestions?

What exactly is a “Yart Sale,” you may ask? The term Yart is an artistic spin on the traditional yard sale:
Art + Yard Sale = Yart!
Awesome! All items in Green Violet Vintage titled "YART" are marked down 25%, I hope you find something you love that is on sale! I will keep at least 10 items on sale until the 14th, so if something from the sale sells, I'll add another item. Check back all week! And, don't forget to check for other sellers on Etsy that are also having Yart Sales.
I enjoy sharing photos and I love to read photo filled blogs, so I have been sad that I don't have any to share with ya'll. However, yesterday I sent a dress off to Madrid, and that got me thinking about my vacation to Spain a few years ago and what an amazing place it is! So, I figured I could share some old photos of Spain with you to hold you over until I get around to getting the camera fixed.
My sister was studying abroad and the whole fam went to meet her after her studies were done. We went to Madrid, Barcelona, Gibraltar, Rhonda, and a few stops in, around, and in between those places. I have to say, I love Spain! They sleep in every morning, drink until very late in the evening, and take their siestas very seriously! It's fun to send dresses off to unknown lands, like Norway or Australia, but I especially love it when I send a dress off to a place where I can imagine it wondering through the plazas and sipping wine in cafes.

Did ya'll even know about all the awesome stuff that you can do with Picassa? Like how I made that collage in 5 minutes after struggling with Photoshop for about an hour? Picassa is like Photoshop light- or maybe just Photoshop for dummies. Now, off to bed because tomorrow I get to be a farmer!

As you can see, the color probably needs to be changed. But how well will overdying work for something like this? What would my color options be? Does anyone have an experience with that? The dress is floor length so I think I'll hem it to around knee length. Maybe the neckline could also be altered? Also, I would like to dress it up and make it a little unique with some sort of embellishment. Any suggestions?
