Time flies when you're not looking

Sometimes life just gets in the way, doesn't it?  I started to blog many years ago as a creative outlet.  It was about cooking and the simple things we like to eat, along with just things that happened in life.  Somehow I fell out of love with cooking.  I don't know what happened.  It just seems like such a chore.  In a way, I think it is because no one seems to appreciate it any longer. With 4 adults and a baby in the house, we are going different directions at all times.  We rarely get to sit down to dinner anymore since 3 of the 4 of us work different hours than the rest. It just doesn't fulfill me like it used to.  I do feel great once I have talked myself into actually preparing a meal, but the effort it takes to get me there just exhausts me.

I'm hoping that with this new blog, I can find some kind of passion for something again.  I have always loved clothes......and shoes.....and purses.  My favorite era for clothing is the 1950's and 60's.  I feel that I should have truly been an adult at that time.  Women were stylish, the clothing had great form and who doesn't want to play cards and drink martini's in the middle of the day?

As I am starting out, I will post pics of thrifty items I find.  Some will be what I have found at thrift stores, and others will be some great deals I find on clearance.  I want to get some time under my belt before I start styling the pieces (I have "styled" a couple pieces when I first started this blog).  I just need to gain some confidence after reading so many great blogs and seeing what appears to be natural talent.  I will also ask questions and opinions to help me find my voice and to honestly ask for help.  Many times I find things I love, but have no idea to wear with it.

For my first find, I present 

It is a Sag Harbor black sweater that I picked up for $4.99 at Savers.  I'm limited on my photo editing tools, so it looks a little washed out. Trust me when I say it is not faded at all.  It has this cute little bow on the collar and it is one of the softest sweaters I own.  I paired it with a pair of black and grey pants and a pair of black booties.  I'm looking for some bold colored earrings or a bracelet to wear with it to add a pop of color.  I didn't want to interfere with the cute bow with a necklace.

And a side note: I did spell "Trys" incorrectly in the name of my blog.  I just liked the way it looked, rather than being grammatically correct :)

Happy Sunday!
