Fabulous Friday’s Linkup Party – DIY’s, Labour Day, and Dressing Up for the Long Lost Sun…

Labour Day weekend was the last day of sunshine in this part of town- fortunately I had the time for a fun dress-up to head out on the boat! How quirky do I look?!  I’ve officially turned into my flamboyant Venetian Great Aunt lol!!!   And then…that was the last of the sun…Had to change quickly into sweats and warm sweater…brought a blanket too…there went the sun- but even that could not get the joy out of me!!

I did keep myself busy with the new course planning for my teaching: classes began this week for me!  Busy, busy- but never too busy for a DIY!  Loved transforming 2 outfits this week.  Check it out!

The brown dress was a skirt! From it I derived these two garments- so fun!!

See the Video clip here!!

This week, my youngest turned 19- and with Covid and everyone’s busy schedules…this sweet and short celebration had to be planned on the go. We still enjoyed ourselves- family is everything!

I’m always so excited when I get featured!  Thank you so, so much to : Shelly of Queen in Between!! I love her blog!!

Thanks also to Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood; Thursday Moda for featuring me among these other fabulous bloggers!

Thanks also to MIchelle from My Bijou Life Online!!! Michelle is a Virgo!

And Michelle also featured me on her Creative Compulsions!! Thanks ever-so much as well to Emma of Style-Splash!! I guess this Gucci look really did impress lol!!

And then a feature from My Purple Heart! And by Oh My Heartsie Girl – Thanks so Much!!

And now my turn to feature one of you beautiful Linkup Ladies!!  If you want to be featured, please make sure to Linkup your posts- I promise I read them all!  And that’s where I choose from😊

Favourite Fashion Diva from the Linkup is: Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb!

How fun is this look? I love how she styled this plaid! Wasn’t looking forward to the fall…but this kind of styling puts me in that mood- so perfect!

Favourite Fun Linkup Read was by Mireille of Chez Mireille-Fashion- Travel- Mom , for her post on Wedding Anniversary at The Fainting Goat Winery!

I would love to visit this place! You should see the gorgeous pics MIreille took!

Most interesting Linkup Read was by Alison of Midlife and Beyond for her post: Menopause and Hair Loss…

    1. Thanks Jessica!! I’m actually not the best sewer – I’m self taught (well actually a bit here and there from my mom and aunts!) Have a great weekend too!! xx

  1. Such a great post, Lucy! I love that you have channeled your great aunt on your boating excursion! I think my nephews already view me as the quirky flamboyant aunt! Haha. You had lots of wonderful features on other blogs this week! Doesn’t it just make your day when that happens? I hope you have a fabulous weekend, my friend!


  2. Lucy, your DIY makeovers are fabulous! (I still need to watch the video.) And the “flamboyant Venetian Great Aunt” comment tickled me. It’s a fun outfit! And I now realize my wording was confusing. I’m actually a Capricorn. My apologies! Belated Happy Birthday to your daughter! The picture of the 3 of you is beautiful.


    1. Oh!! I really thought you were a Virgo! Well, can’t wait to get to the Capricorn part lol! It will be good! And yes, my great-aunt was super eccentric (so I may have a gotten some of her quirks in styling for sure!! Thanks for the good wishes! Have a wonderful weekend xx

  3. Thank you so much for the feature, Lucy! And congratulations to you too! I do love your outfits. You look fabulous! Have a lovely weekend. xx

  4. Lucy, you are so darn clever and creative!! Two dresses from one skirt!! Wow! Very cute. Best wishes for your teaching–this coming from a former educator who still consults with schools and districts! Have a nice weekend.

    xx Darlene

  5. That little brown dress is so cute, what a clever idea to reinvent a skirt as a dress! Happy birthday to your daughter too! 🙂

    Hope you are having a good weekend 🙂

  6. Lucy thank you SO much for featuring my look, so glad you loved it! Though we’d had an Indian summer this week, it was back to the summer tops the past few days…!!

    Catherine x

    P.S. Your way of wearing a skirt as a dress is ingenious 😀
