Hi everybody!  I have fun fun FUN news for you all!

I’ve been hinting about a project I’ve been working on that I think you’ll all really love. Well…It’s HERE!  Here’s the dealio: One of our clients at my day job at Riggs Partners is Goodwill Industries of the Upstate/Midlands South Carolina. They’ve just rolled out something pretty special. :)

I hereby introduce you to the NEW Good Life Blog!

We’re a community of bloggers that came together through a shared passion for DIY projects, Décor, Fashion, Sustainability, and (of course) Goodwill. This is a collaborative blog, a space for some of the most knowledgeable thrifting and DIY experts to showcase their projects, techniques, tricks, tips, and personal styles.

Be sure to check out my latest post, Everything You Wanted to Know About Dyeing, but Were Afraid to Ask!

I decided to celebrate the launch of this awesome new blog with a fun frock!

You’re looking at a comfy red polyester housecoat.

I really didn’t want to actually wear a red polyester housecoat though.  :)

I made a couple of chops.

Choppy choppy!

Then, I threw my frock on my dress form for a fitting.

 

In ya go!

Some whirring followed!

And after one final chop…

 

Farewell!
