Lent 2011 - Day 33

This weekend was the first true spring weekend we’ve had so far. It was beautiful and sunny and everyone in our neighborhood was out working in their yards. Mr. Cleaver and I were no exception (we don’t want our new neighbors thinking we’re slackers!). Of course I’m sure the neighbors though I was cutting quite the ZsaZsa Gabor in Green Acres figure, sweeping and raking in a skirt and boots.

My favorite was meeting the little girl across the street, who greeted me with: “Hi! We don’t have to wear coats!”

In addition to yard care, I got in some sewing on my Beignet Skirt (shell is finished) and went to the Great Maine Bike Swap and picked up a vintage Sears 3-speed, which I’ll share some photos of later this week  – it’s very me.

Shell Seam Finishing

In the evenings, Mr. Cleaver and I have been re-watching Season 3 of Mad Men, which inspired today’s outfit a bit. I love all the scarves the women wear and while I have a decently-sized scarf collection, it makes me want more!
