My Cute Garden Sweater

As many of you may know...I LOVE cutesy sweaters.
Now, I am a bit of a sweater connoisseur/sweater snob...
I LOVE fancy, Boutique cutsey sweaters.
I have posted about finding cute sweaters in the past,
those were some of the posts that were lost in my blog fire.
Some of you may remember the cute sweaters I found this fall...
one was of a pumpkin patch and another adorable one
had the little fuzzy sheep stitched on it with a woolly collar.
Yes, I know that cutsey sweaters are not fashionably correct.
I think I am fairly safe in assuming that I would be
booed & laughed right off the proverbial red carpet.
I can't help it, I really LOVE them,
along with my plaid shirts and Ked tennis shoes.
Today I am wearing a black sweater that has cats stitched all over and the words,
"A Cat is Cat" and "Meow" all along the bottom.
The kitties are swatting at butterflies, and
some are sitting in a basket with little red ribbons around their necks ~ Cute!
Yesterday while thrift store shopping,
I found another really, REALLY cute sweater.
This time the theme was gardening!
One of my most favorite subjects!

Darling little cabbages in a garden row!

Farm Fresh Produce is the BEST!

We have a little red Ford tractor.

A cute little garden market!

I picked up a Lemon Thyme plant last week.
I love cooking with herbs and I am so anxious to start planting my herb garden.
You can sprinkle these little lemon scented leaves in your muffin batter.

This came in the mail yesterday!
I have been trying to figure out what seed varieties I want to buy.
Lowe's carries Burpee garden seeds, which is great!
That way I can save on the shipping.

One other treasure I found just yesterday!
Do you see it in my sugar cannister?
A red & white teacup!
It was a bargain too,
just $1.00!
It has been nice and warm here lately,
then the rain came, and lots of little frogs
that peep, peep, peep all around the pond.
But, this afternoon it has turned
very blustery & windy and very chilly.
It is not quite time yet, to be out in the garden,
but it is still chilly enough to wear a sweet garden sweater!

Lucky you, the sweater is so cute. I was thinking about you and your sweaters last week and had wondered if you ever wore that cute little sweater with the poodles on it. The one you found right before you moved. I don't know what reminded and made me think of it. Have you ever heard of Jeanie Bice from QVC fame. She has the most adorable sweaters I've ever seen. Very pricey too. I found one for my mom at the thrift store In Rockfrod, Ill this past fall and I made my mom buy it. It was too small for me. She doesn't have cable so she doesn't even know who Jeanie Bice is, but I told her to trust me, you want it. It was a Valentine Sweater and sooo cute. My mom has a collection of very beautiful Christmas sweaters, some are almost 20 years old. She starts in the day after Thanksgiving and wears one each day until Christmas. I don't mind here wearing them, but those gold penny loafers she had, had to go!!!

Did you know they are making a big come back?? Some folks are even having retro Christmas sweater parties. I think it sounds fun.

Enjoy your garden sweater and I wish I had one.

I think you have a serious case of spring fever:0)Your sweater is so cute and I love the idea of using the cup as a scoop.

I am new to your blog, and I am really enjoying it - you sound so much like me - cheers to you for not caring what people think and wearing what you love! I happen to love those cheeky sweaters too! They are cozy and they say something about who you are.

I love your sweaters! You always find the cutest things. Where did you find the jar you have your sugar in? I've been wanting one like that but haven't found any that was large enough.

Morning Jill! As a person who loves to knit I love looking at the work in these "cutesy" sweaters! I say who cares what the "fashion style" is! Set your own fashion statement; who wants to look like everyone else anyway!!! I have tried several times to grow an herb garden on my window sill but always kill it with kindness!lol They are pretty little plants anyway even if only for a while. Have a great weekend! Sincerely, Jeannette

Colleen said...

I am so ready to plant my herb garden too! What do you plant? I have to have lots of Italian flat leaf parsley, thyme, rosemary, mint, and a few others. Gosh they make food taste so much better!

Love the sweater!

Tam said...

OK I have some similar sweaters in my closest. HERE they are still worn! Great Find on your tea cup!

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

Jill I adore that sweater! The cabbage, heheee! I really liked the pumpkin one too...

The chandy shades are beautiful, well done! I love when we have "all that we need" right in our craft stash.

I like the birds chirping in the background...

I see you have an Etsy shop, good for you! I have to go check it out. I'm working on one as well but it will be a while. I want to have a lot to *fill* the store.

How are you liking the house color this spring??
