Say it isn't SNOW!!! and my groovey Moustache!!


 
So we got snow yesterday and again today! Ok no big deal everyone is gettin it BUT I have to drive in it!! And I am the biggest Chicken Little in the SNOW!! I know I am a Michigander and have been all my life BUT it is the one thing that makes me have anxiety! I have to drive to a Women's Retreat I am attending about 50 miles away. My cuzin is going with me and her car is broken!! So my saving grace is that it is for God and I will be just fine!! LOL But it's still snowing God!!! (trying to put a plea out here)
 
 
Here is my new groovey, pin keep, make do, ornie, tuck, prim and grubby, upcycled "MOUSTACHE".
 
 
I used an old vintage black n white photo of a dapper young man with a "stashe" I had. I added some lace, an old button, paper punch crown, and pearl embellishment.
 
I also added a brown vintage button, and made some pins from an old vintage necklace that I broke and bummed myself out about. Paying it forward with the pearls. This is a pattern I drew out myself and I LOVE how the whole thing turned out! I am very proud of this one!! It is listed in my Etsy Shoppe.
 
Hey as I am finishing up this post the sun is shining!! Woo Hoo see I just needed to get it out to my BBF's!!(best bloggin friends) Thanks for letting me Boo Hoo for a minute!! Gotta go pack and get myself off this computer!!
Peace Out, XOXO Love ya Fran.

I've been trying to cancel winter for decades Fran..... to no avail!
I skated to Meijer today and will do the same when I work at the shop tomorrow ( weather is always crappy on my work day) so I just plow on ahead and pretend I have no fear as I slip & slide.
Be safe and know Spring is always coming....sometime !
Hugs

Drive careful Fran. My company lets me work from home when it snows bad, which I did yesterday..so nice..but then its been snowing all day again today and more tomorrow. Spring is not coming fast enough for me. Have a great weekend! Janice

I sure hope that the drive wasn't as bad as you thought it might be!
Your mustache is too cute! I have a feeling it won't be around for long.
Have fun on your retreat Fran!

Have fun Fran!
Driving in snow doesn't bother me, only if a whiteout in the U.P.
Happy Saturday

Snowflakes scare me too, you are not alone but I do have this snowgirl called Snowflake Fran, and she is not scary at all!
I'd love to hear about the retreat!
