It was the 100th day of school today! (already?) The younger grades always do something fun to celebrate and this year, Olive's class got to dress up like 100 year olds. Olive and I worked on her costume yesterday, stopping at the dollar store for her old lady turban, flesh colored knee highs and some brown eye-liner for her wrinkles.She was ecstatic when I got my make-up out, but she wasn't too pleased when she looked in the mirror and saw an old lady face. I reminded her she wasn't dressing up as a princess.
We made glasses out of wire and found her most old lady like clothes...which makes me wonder if I should wear less cardigans. Her toothless look:
My favorite were the slouching knee highs, but I don't think she wore them that way. As soon as she was out of sight, she might have been wiping off her wrinkles (if only it were that easy) and pulling up her stockings. Her sisters did vouch that she was the best looking 100 year old at school today, even if it was a homemade costume, they added. Thanks?
Everyone in Azure's class brought in 100 of any object. And of what do I have more than a hundred? That's right. Just looking at them makes me want to tackle my sewing machine so I can put them to use. Sometimes I take things to Good Will and snip the buttons off first. Is that rude? I admit I have a bit of a button obsession. Other times I start a project based on the buttons. A bit buttoncentric, I'll admit. I might be the Buttonics Anonymous president, and I don't plan on resigning any time soon. Vintage, new, glass, fabric covered, round, square, I love 'em all.
Of what do you have more than 100 and proud of it?
