Beaded Seahorse Top

Posted on: June 26, 2013

This top is probably the oldest item in my closet…. Now mind you,  with my weight gain and now loss, I’ve done a complete rehaul of my wardrobe… But there are just some pieces that are so special that you hold onto them and this is mine.


For a gal who is a native of Virginia Beach, anything sea or beach related holds a special place in my heart.


This is all made up of tiny seed beads.


I love this skirt and it in fact have one in white as well. It’s elastic waist, cotton fabrication and crotched insert at the bottom just makes it a perfect summer skirt.  I do have to steam the crotchet bottom flat each time it gets washed, but well worth it to me!


I faced the opposite way than I normally pose to show off the bow sash I created using an obi belt from a jacket.  I didn’t really like this outfit until I added this special touch.  It then beame unified and had the femine flair I love.  My hair looks so full here…

Dear Readers, Do any of you have a special peice or two that have stood the test of time and been in your closet for longer than you wish to admit?… I honestly can’t remeber how long I’ve owned this one…I do know it’s over 10 years…Does wear you live influence things you love in fashion or jewelry such as my living at the beach does?   Would love to hear from you?

PS.  Stomach virus subsided late today (Wedneday).


I am grateful for the miracle yestereday when a co-worker of my husband’s survived a horrendous car crash which upon seeing photos of the car truly is a miracle!

I am grateful for the hours the three youngest kids and I spent looking over old photos last night!  It was such fun and we laughed so much!  

I am grateful for the wonderful conversations with my children where we talked about being open in your perspective to take in information from others and get a clearer picture, than your own inital small thinking… We also talked about how sad that we know people incapable of taking that information in and staying stuck i their own misguided truth. I truly love conversations with my older children…

I am grateful that we live so close to a grocery store that even on a hot evening I can get in some one on one walking with a child, today was my youngest… I treasure these as they are a favorite memory of my childhood with my father.  one legacy he left behind in his short 42 years of life.

You look terrific! Love the combo..

What a great colour combination! This looks perfect for summer 🙂

thank you! I find skirts so much better for our hot, humid Summer’s.

Hi, Tracey. Thanks so much for linking up with Flashback Favorites today! I can see why you chose the Lace, Leather & Ombre look as your May favorite. I love anything in cream/white/tan colors and throw in some lace and that’s extra special.
Oh! Your seahorse t-shirt is so cute!
Well, there’s that 15 year old skirt (I blogged about earlier in the week) that I hung onto for FOREVER hoping that someday I’d lose weight to wear it again. And I did. Yay!
I really enjoy reading your gratitudes, Tracey. So sweet.

Isn’t it fun to lose wwight and in to new things!
