Janis sings Piece of My Heart


It's feel good Friday, so let's go back to the sixties and feel good with Janis Joplin as she performs in Germany.  I had the good fortune to see her live several times back then at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco and wasn't amazed--just enjoyed, and took it for granted.  At that time, we'd just dance around and smile.  It took time for us to glaze over later, as she became more famous.

prom dresses repurposed for Barbie


prom dresses repurposed into dresses for Barbie
image ©2015 Carole Terwilliger Meyers 

Like many women, I kept my prom dresses along with my wedding dress.  When I realized I'd never wear them again, I let my daughter and friends play dress-up with the prom dresses until they were in tatters.  But even then I still wasn't ready to let them go.  There was enough good fabric left to make doll dresses to fit my daughter's leftover Barbies--thus repurposing two items with one idea.  The sentimental seamstress was able to keep the stitches my mom had made when she created the dresses for me.  I had wanted the Elvis doll as their date but at the time could only find a Ken in a tuxedo, who gets lost in the fabric.  And I see blonde Barbie has lost her glass slippers!

Here is another take on repurposing an old prom dress.
