Beauty you can wear.

Find more photos like this on W.A.R.M.

Haze McElhenny, from the new W.A.R.M. site for women in the arts (Womens Art Recognition Movement started by Cheryl Townsend, artist/poet), is making me a hand designed casual skirt dress made of recycled tee shirts , the sale of which benefit charity, and with her artwork on it. Click on her profile at W.A.R.M. and you'll also find links to her sites with more illustrations. She designs clothes for a living, too, so this is a neat sideline for her. If you're interested in anything you see, tell her I sent you. She likes to know where her referals come from.

PS I chose the face and the turquoise color on the above slide show for the dress/skirt. I love it and it's perfect for Florida casual living and weather. Can hardly wait to see it now. The part I'm buying comes to waist or above bust. She's showing it worn with various tops that aren't attached to the outfit and you pick from your own wardrobe.

I love the title of your blog (and your blog too). We seem to have a lot of similarities (ex-psychologist, same last name, same illness). I look forward to reading your blog. It looks wonderful and full of life.

Hi Joyce, Thanks for the good wishes!

Terri, I didn't realize we had the same last name, too. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Happy New Year, Pris I hope you and your family have a wonderful 2009.

Thank you for the cuppa and a chat.
I love the idea of the amazing clothes. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

Happy New Year Pris...I like this idea. It reminds me of these cut-out card dolls we had when we were small. They came with cut-out clothes and accessories too. I think they do still make them, even today.
Looking forward to your fashion show pics!!!!
