A Poncho Day

First of all, let me take a moment to express how deeply saddened I am to hear about the tragedy in Connecticut. I don't even want to imagine what those families are going through, many thoughts and prayers going out to them.
Today we had a poncho day. I was lucky enough a year ago to have found this awesome poncho out thrifting for 4 dollars! But, I am kicking myself because there were two (one in another color) and I only grabbed this one. I hate when I pass something great up at the thrift and then get home and say... "I should have got that!!" It happens to me quite often actually. The poncho Miss Mally is wearing is one I made from the DIY Beanie Sweater. All I did to make it was cut the sleeves off and sew down a quarter of the way, super easy! Miss Chesa is wearing a Starting Out brand doggie poncho found at a garage sale a couple years back.
Also, I want to mention that I love reading all your comments and I am still in the process to responding to each of them and checking out all of your blogs :)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Now go tell your family you love them...

  4. Great pics! I love all of your ponchos, and yours is especially cool. I never thought that they could look so fashionable.

  5. You three are looking oh so cute. Love all of your outfits. :) I get you! Until now I still kick myself for not buying those vintage suitcases at the rummage sale this year for really cheap and now they don't have any available. I really wanted those vintage suitcases and I didn't buy it. Oh dear! I only have one poncho and I am thinking of selling it or maybe not and it has this southwestern design to it and in black. I love how you turned that sweater. :)
