Thank you to all of my wonderful readers for advice and suggestions for pin curls. I'm a newbie pin-curler but with a little help and vegging out in front of you tube, I think I have it figured out!

Tonight is weekly date night for Pj and I, so I did some pin curls this afternoon and after some brushing out and styling, here's how it turned out! Again, more practice and then I'll post a tutorial for my fellow pin-curling newbies!

Don't you love this dress? We'll, it's actually a two-piece skirt and blouse! I picked this gem up from a sweet little lady on etsy. Check out her fab shop, Such a Deal- nothing over $15 and she has some great stuff with amazing prices at her other shop

Oh, this hat is the very first vintage hat that I ever bought. I used to work with adults with developmental disabilities and every year, we had a tea party to invite friends and family to dress up and have lots of yummy foods,and visit the day program that I worked for. I wore this hat for my first tea party.

So, here I am, dolled up for a date with my hubby (he hates when I call him "hubby" so I don't do it often). We're finally going to go see Sherlock Holmes, just have to get the peach ready to go hang out with her Grannie!
