My outfit and my dream scissors!

Hey everyone!

I thought I would stop in and do a short post today. My family is gearing up for leaving for our first reenactment where we will be camping out and launching our reenacting group "the Pinkerton and Telegraph service". We are so excited and I will definately post pictures from the weekend as soon as I can next week. It will be our first time having our own camp set up at a public event and being able to share the history of the civil war with the public. Do pray for us that we will also be able to share the Gospel through our group. That is our number one reason for reenacting is sharing The Lord's history.
Today I thought I would share my outfit. Its all thrifted except for my shoes, scarf, and shirt.

My favorite part of this outfit is my linen jacket, which I found at the thrift store last fall for only $7.00 and it is one of my favorite brands!!! H&M!!! I was thrilled. I love the belted look and I can wear it with so many things all spring and summer. Linen is very cool and also warm, depending on temps. So its great!

My skirt I have posted about on here before, it was only $5.00 at a thrift store and I love it! I love the ruffles at the bottom and its so versitale as well! My scarf is made by me and I posted about it earlier in the month. The fabric is from Joann.

I was thrilled to use my new gingher scissors tuesday night to cut out my new light blue circle skirt. I will start putting it together next week after the reenactment. So stay tuned. They cut so nicely I could not believe it! No trouble with the scissors not cutting or having a hard time through layers of fabric. I think every seamstress should have a pair of these! wonderful!

Well I better go! I have lots of packing, school, reading, cooking, and sewing to do before tomorrow when we leave for the reenactment. God bless and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

In Christ,
