Wishing the Weather Would Make Up Its Mind

Linking up with Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.


What's the weather like where you live?  Here in Southern California, it won't make up it's mind.  It was hot and sunny last weekend.  Yesterday it rained.  Today, it wasn't sure what it wanted to do.


This morning when I got dressed it looked promising -- blue sky, chirping birds.  So I put on a t-shirt for a day of warm, working with tools.






Then I went outside, and it was freezing.  Well, not really, cuz it never gets that cold in Temecula.  But it was cold enough for a sweater.   I decided to take a chance, and threw on an apron instead because I had plans to work with a soldering gun, and I didn't want sleeves to get tangled up with a hot iron and molten metal.




This is my FAV-O-RITE apron.  I love it so much I almost hate to wear it.  I keep it on a dress form in my studio and stare at it while I work (wearing my second favorite apron.)  I'll be selling these at Queen Bee in a few weeks.  Are you coming????  I hope so because Lindsey and I will be there along with a bunch of amazing crafters, so save the date -- May 6th and 7th at the Del Mar Hilton in San Diego.


I was in such a hurry this morning, I forgot to put on jewelry before I took the picture.  But this is what I wore.  Love these.  Yellow just makes me happy.






T-shirts are from H&M.
Earrings are Crystal B
Apron - already told you about that.
Yellow Flip Flops - who cares, right. :)


Hope you have a wonderful day.  I know I will.  I love working with tools.  And I love making new pieces of jewelry, especially if I can use cool tools.


I think I've surpassed the legal limit for using the word "tools" in one post.  So I guess I better quit while I'm ahead and show you the picture of the bracelets I will  be making with my soldering gun instead. :)


P.S. Enjoy this video and celebrate the Mom in you.   I thank WIWW for helping me to shed my tufted vest. :)

I wouldnt wear the apron either...for fear it would get messed up. Sooo cute! I wish wish wish I lived anywhere close to the Queen Bee Market. I am on the other coast! It looks like the most perfect place to shop and meet lots of fellow bloggers!
Enjoy!

I'm with you, I wish the weather would stick to something. One weekend it was 80 and today it's like 45 but I live in Indiana so that's pretty typical...

The tee looks so bright and sunny, we could use that here. We have 1 warm day and then pay for it with 6 cold ones. The apron is incredibly cute and I'd be hard pressed to wear it too.

Oh I love your apron. You look amazing Crystal.

:( I won't be able to make it down Friday like I wanted. We're planning a party for Saturday May 7 and I'm going to be one busy lady preparing food stuff... You'll have to let me know when you plan your next show.

Blessings - Debbie

Love the apron and I can see why it’s your favorite! I have one hanging in my kitchen that I won’t dare wear. It was a gift from a friend and I love it! I’m fearful of getting it dirty, having to wash it, and the fabric losing its stiffness in the wash….it just hangs so nicely all new and clean. Just plain silly I tell ya! I need to put that bad boy on and break it in! Good luck with your sale. I’m sure you’ll do fabulously!
