lounging in florida

 We just got back from our 5 day trip to Florida.
The hotel internet didn't work most of the time.
That's why I couldn't update my blog, or go online.

Me at the hotel
My shorts are thrifted

Here are some palm tree inspired fashions I like:
Vintage Palm Trees Dress

I really like the way this dress is styled.
Tropical Sun Dress
Upcycled Distressed T-Shirt

I think these shorts are so cute,
 but I could never wear them,
 because they are too short for me.

Hand Painted Cut Off Shorts

Vintage Print Blouse

Hand Painted Front and Back Black Tank

Art journal pages
 I drew these in my in laws backyard,
back in May.
I added the paint later.

I've been up since 2:45 AM, with about an hour nap.
 I was basically dead tired when we got home.
 I'm feeling more refreshed now, though.  :)


  1. that's a nice view from the hotel. I only been to one that was right slab next to the ocean.

  2. Glad you got a nice vacation! Welcome back! Try to hang on to that lounge chair feeling as long as you can!

  14. Hi Teddi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your blog, and I so know what you mean about hearing a song you haven't heard in a while!! I was in Florida back in June, it was wonderful. Love your art journal pages too, especially love the blind contour self portrait, I like how you left the lines and colored it in from memory...funny how much we are influenced by our experiences and those who are most familiar to us. Cheers!

  15. Fun photos Teddi! It must have been a great vacation! ヅ

    Lots of love and kisses ! Vale
