Break Time

Farewell to a blogging world... I am going to take a week off checking blogs, posting, or anything blog related starting today. I can't say I'm sad because I know I really need this! I mean 32 posts in one month?? That shouldn't really take up that much of my time.
2 Corinthians 5:1
Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a heavenly house, not built by human hands.
If our earthly surroundings were destroyed.. (computer comes to mind??) what would we do? Some of us might say, "Turn to God." Would you actually? I wish we could all say that truthfully. Why do we have to rely on God only when times are tough? You can't expect a friend to love you when you're hurt, if you don't care about them when you're fine.
So goodbye to the blogging world for now, and I'll see you next week!

Thursday's Dresses 3

Well, I have labeled just about every post I have published on this blog....so now I can make it easier for you to find stuff on my blog! Welcome to Thursday's Dresses! This week's post is all about gingham. Gingham is my favorite!
Downright ADORABLE! I love it!

This one I would like to lengthen a little-- ok alot! But the top is SO cute!! Very nancy-drewish.

I'm not too crazy about this one, but I like the gingham on it. It's more of a prairie type dress.

 This is a scary picture haha! Her outfit is like... HIDEOUS!!!!!!!!

Nancy Drew style

I am a HUGE fan of Nancy Drew style clothing. I love vintage but don't have the guts to actually wear old style clothing... fear of critisicm and mean comments I suppose. I guess I shouldn't really care what other people think anyway since I love the styles. Maybe someday....

This is SO Nancy-Drewish!

I drew this picture one time. It turned out pretty good... Nancy didn't really look like herself though.

I absolutely LOVE this dress! It is so adorable. I want it for myself!

Classic Nancy Drew style (and Bess and George)
(why is George wearing pink? she's the boyish, sporty one! ☺)

Today's Nancy Drew!

What's your style? Do you love Nancy's vintage look?

No copyright intended. I do not claim to own any of the pictures shown. Pictures found on Google Web Search.

Thanks to picnik for D. and E.
A and B are just more dressed-up versions of D and E :)
