I inherited a large stash of tee shirts when my husband passed away in 2014 and I’ve spent the last few years making things with the shirts and giving them new life. This was after giving many of his shirts away and donating other shirts to charity. The latest thing I’ve made from an old tee shirt is an easy to make, no-sew reusable shopping bag.
I am not a beauty blogger. This seems very apparent to me but am mentioning it just in case! Keep that in mind as you read about my morning routine and my medicine cabinet. There’s more to feeling good about yourself than lipstick but lipstick helps!
Some will notice that I have avoided the word “fashion” in this latest https://edgehillherbfarm.blog/ post. It was deliberate. #truestory.
The first installment in my new series of Grief-stricken posts that I’m calling ‘Cooking from Scratch for One’. Widowhood is an adventure of sorts, albeit an unwanted one, and this series is part of the adventure. I am telling my story in the hopes it might help someone else who is struggling with loss and grief. If you like what you read, please feel free to share it with others that you think might benefit from what I’ve gone through and have learned and am learning. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and reading your comments. Cheers, Karen
I “finished” the hand braided rug that I was making back in 2016 out of some of my late husband’s tee shirts and I’m not sure which I’m more pleased with, the rug itself or that it’s finally finished. Big win for me either way!
A visit to an old work stomping grounds unexpectedly brings Karen to tears. When this happens, it is what Karen calls a “grief slap”.
