On my way home today I scored a fabulous jacket for my gypsy garb for the December Capra and the Tree Lighting. $6! I'd been musing all year as to what exactly I would wear. For awhile I went in a more formal direction and then the faeries left me this! I can't wait to design a suitable hat and decide exactly how the rest of the garb should look. I'm thinking cuffs, collar and a slight peplum. And who knows what else? But that's the excitement of it! Or, as I like to call it: Reason to Live. ;)
The coolest thing about all my garb is that because of the nature of my job I can usually wear it, in a modified version, (ok-sometimes *not* so modified) to work! (Paula-are you reading this? One time Paula talked to me for a good 15 minutes and called me at my desk another 15 minutes later and said: "Were you just dressed like a pirate? Me: "Uh-huh." Paula: Good god, I don't even notice any more." That, to me, is success! ;)
In addition, this will be the same event that Miss Darla will premiere the CAPRA and the MAGICAL GOAT BLANKET PROJECT!
If you haven't yet sent a piece of fabric or trinket for the Magical Blanket won't you consider taking a moment? There is so much energy surrounding the pieces that I'd be sad to complete the project with out you.

So, now off I go to ponder...............
Here is the direction I had intended to go (sans blouse) when I found this lovely jacket several months ago.
