If you have followed my blog for a while, then you are used to me talking about my family. I talk a lot about my kids, my grandbabies, and I love sharing all of the crazy things that Joe does and says. My sister is also another favorite topic of mine, but you hardly ever hear me mention my brother. Today, you are going to see me act like a rooster, and crow to the top of my lungs about my father and my brother.
My father has been a contractor ever since I remember. He is the reason that I have a love of homebuilding, and I love seeing blueprints come to life. He has been a contractor for a major log home company in Tennessee for a long time. My brother has always been talented in many areas. My mother refers to him as the “smart” one of her kids. (maybe not out loud, but we know how she feels. Lol!)
My dad had a health scare three of four years ago (thankfully, he is fine now,) and my brother moved back from Georgia to help him run the business. Together, they have built some amazing homes, and some of them have even been featured in log home magazines; one of them was even in Russian. I want to share a couple of photos of one of those homes and ask for a small favor from you.
Seventy-nine homes were nominated for the BEST HOME of the year, and the home that they built was one of those! That is amazing, but now I want them to win. Lol! Soooooo, I would love it if you went to this link (here) and voted for home #33!!! Thanks in advance. ?
This entire week is going to have red in it in some way. After all, this is the month of LOVE and red it the color of love. Yesterday, I wore a bright red blazer, but today I decided to do a red v-neck pullover instead. For those of you who have a hard time wearing red, this might be an option. The blazer is the prominent color, so the red doesn’t compete with your skin tone. The v-neck sweater is one that I bought from Target earlier in December. However, that particular sweater has sold out in red.
My jewelry is all going to be an “inspiration,” and not a “here is a link to purchase.” since most of it is vintage. I love my vintage jewelry, but I don’t wear it a lot on the blog since you can’t buy it. I do like that it is unique and that you don’t see everyone wearing the same thing as you though. My necklace looks like it is from the art-deco era, and the carved bracelet is bakelite. I buy most of my vintage jewelry at vintage fashion shows that my mother and her friend have, but you can also buy it on Etsy and eBay.
Black pumps are my go-to shoes! I think they are classy and sexy all at the same time. Lol! If you don’t own a pair of pumps, go and get a pair right now. I know that you might not be able to wear the ones with higher heels, but you can still find a pair that will work for you. Mine are by Coach, and I have had them for a few years. These run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9.
I wanted to show you a different take on the shoes, so I added a pair of red pumps. This is a way that you can see how changing your shoes can change the look of an outfit.
I carried this Selena clutch in yesterday’s post. I wanted to show you how the clutch looked using the gold chain as a shoulder strap. Yesterday, I carried the clutch without the gold chain. Here is the link to the clutch, but I’ll also link some others for you to see.
Finally, my faded gray jeans are a pair of my all-time favorites. This is a pair of Rockstar jeans from Old Navy. I love the faded color, and these are a great alternative to wearing black or blue denim. I am wearing my usual size 10, which is what I normally wear from Old Navy.
