..finding florals for spring..

I really love the embracing of floral, pretty girly things, and nautical for spring.  I have found some really great pieces in my scouring of the thrift stores lately.  I found a calico tie at the bottom of a bin in the men's section of our disabled veteran thrift town a while back, and I finally decided to wear it now that spring is drawing closer.
I also got ambitious this weekend and started a sewing project!  Prompted by the warm weather, I got out a pair of amazing shorts that I got on the same thrifting run.  They have a great fit, but I want to shorten them for a 50's tap short feel.  So far so good, I got most of the way done before I ran out of light.  All I need to do is to pleat in the hem and add the cuff back on.  I probably don't do things the technically correct way when sewing, but it works.  I am always learning.
