It's Getting Hot in Here...

I know the song asks for you to "take off all your clothes"...but for me, hot weather SCREAMS... "MAXI DRESS"
...and that's what I'm about to DIY today.

I here's a little inspiration...







and just in case you'd like to try your hand at making your own maxi dress...this blogger has compiled a list and link to 10 different DIY maxi dress tutorials.  Don't say I didn't hook you up...

A Girl's Been Busy...Getting to know the Postman...

The latest sold and mailed from my ETSY shop SoulPrettyEtsy ...
I have lots of stuff to photograph and post to the shop...sigh.
Maybe tomorrow... I'm off to the post office.  Cha ching...










Another Easy DIY - Organization

So, I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend...I did.
Mini went to North Carolina with her dad for their annual family reunion...
and I got in a little picnic in the park and lot's of me time...follow me on instagram to see photos in real time.

I ate so much crap this weekend...I decided to organize my fridge with healthy foods...

...it just really makes it easier for Mini and I to eat better

I reuse take-out containers for storage...
It's really easy to do...and I have blogged about it before...
...just take the time to cut up all your fruits and veggies when you bring them home from the store...place them in containers and viola...instant salad bar every time you open the fridge.

I also picked up a couple of place mats from the dollar store to use in my refrigerator bins.

...cleaning the fridge is not one of my favorite past times...I saw on Pinterest where someone put place mats in the bottom of their fridge draws to keep them clean...you just remove the place mats and wash when dirty...leaving the actual bins clean as a whistle...

So you know I had to try it...I purchased the zebra pattern place mats for a $1.00 each.  Try to get the flimsy type...

...they are easy to cut and shape to fit your bins perfectly...


done...zebra print in the fridge.





Yep.  I think I'll have a nice salad for lunch.

I feel a trip to the thrift store coming up...


Look What I Made and Sold Already...

I made a couple of cushions out of remnant fabric I had left over from previous projects...
I sold them out at the market the other day...

I have more fabric...so, if your interested in a pillow...leave me a comment and I'll make it happen....thanks.








Bathroom Organization...

I need this shelf in my bathroom.

Another Easy DIY...Spray Painted Bottles...

How cool is this?
Spray painted bottles...
Pretty self explanatory...
Save up all your used glass jars...
Food jars, candy jars, old vases, dollar store finds
Pick your favorite color spray paint 
And spray away...
What makes this grouping so interesting is the way they used different shaped vessels.
I may be doing this in the near future.

How I'd Like to Live Today...

...I don't know...something about those drapes...love.

How clever is this?  A tension rod hung over a dresser...instant closet.

...small kitchen, big style...just splash a bold printed wallpaper all over...paint the floor black...Done.


Yes...yes...yes...


sigh...black walls...love this room.

It's friday...have a great weekend!  Got a friend in from out of town...so, I'm playing tourist today...

Soul Pretty at the Flea Market...

...Here are a couple of images from two weeks ago when I rented a booth at the GreeneFleaMarket on 78th and Columbus in Manhattan.

I made some coins but, it was a lot of work...set up and break down was no joke...I still have stuff in my trunk that I have to bring up to the apartment...UGH!

 ...a guy checking out my wares...

 ...the booth across from me sells handmade wooden tables, etc...pretty pricey.

 ...there are characters at every flea market and this lady in pink was no exception...she was told to put on some clothes and she said, "how do you expect me to catch any fish that way?"...LOL, you go girl.

 Mini took this pic...I love the way the vines are growing across the building...

 ..this vendor was selling all shoes and boots for just $12.00!  I had my eye on a pair all day (she was directly across from me) and just when I went to purchase them...they were gone.
I was a little disappointed...until Mother's Day, when my Mini surprised me with them for Mother's Day!  What!?!?  That girl is so sweet...I can't stand it...She went over and bought them when I left her alone during one of my bathroom breaks...smile.
I have a pic of me wearing them on mother's day, but I can't get it off my phone...I have to wait for Mini to return home from school today...she'll help me post it.

 ...that's me...the braids are gone now...I took them down.

 My mini and her BF...helped me out all day...when they weren't goofing around.




all in all a great day...I would do it again...I just need to be better organized next time...
