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.
The detail is below.
