Altered: Navy Pants

I bought these old lady pants at a thrift shop thinking I might be able to alter them. And I did. I cut about four inches off of each pant leg, and then sewed elastic at the bottom of each leg. It was simple and I finished it in a couple of hours.

Truthfully, I’m not sure if I will wear these pants out in the world; they might just be pants I wear at home. They’re pretty comfortable as they have an elastic waistband. And I like that it has pockets.

Thrifted for $4.50

I love this red, black and blue striped skirt. It’s awesome—it has an elastic waistband and is very comfortable. And it has pockets.

These navy pants scream little old lady. I bought them thinking I might be able to alter them.

Men’s Star Wars shirt that I won’t wear out in the world. But fine as a pajama shirt.

And measuring cups I got an estate sale for $1. There’s no one cup size, which is unfortunate, but it has all the other sizes so I thought it was worth it.

Things I Didn’t Buy 74

I really liked this old sci-fi book—two books in one. Each side of the book was a cover for a different story. I just love the art on these covers. The first side: The Light of Lilith.

The second side: The Sun Saboteurs.

Next was the book: The Joy of Nothing.

It’s really just an empty notebook.

Really nice design on this Good Housekeeping Cook Book.

I liked this Building America book cover.

This home appliance book cover is so simple and bold.

Things I Didn’t Buy 73

I liked this painted picture that has a Russian feel to it. I love the colors, design and how intricate it is.

These two 1970s 3D pictures are pretty awesome.

And I liked this cute mirror. 

Finally, the Montgomery Ward scale was cool.
