All I Have Wished For Will Be

I am OBSESSED with Ruth St. Denis.

2014 was a Crazy Year for me. You may or may not know that I have really struggled with my health over the past two years. And this year. 2014. I discovered that I had been misdiagnosed and was being treated for the WRONG THING all this time! See what I mean? Crazy.
But the Good News for me is that I found an adorable doctor (those are two words that you don't often see together) who is finally helping me to get back to myself.
This is why I think she is adorable ~ she correctly diagnosed me and is helping me to get better AND she loves to shop at Thrift Stores!!! Whenever I have an appointment with her we compare notes about the local Thrift Shop Scene.
 Thrift Girl Power! Yeah! 
Did you know that just smelling Rosemary can alleviate anxiety? Well it's True!
I always told myself that if for some reason I ended up in prison I would pass the time by learning a new language. I have no idea what I would have done to put me into prison but...you just never know, right? Well, being ill all this time FELT like prison. I did not learn a new language but I definitely gave the swear words in my own language a workout.
So here are a few things I did to pass the time.

Here's where I spent too much of 2014. In my bed. The picture of the vintage shoes is to remind me that very soon I will be wearing actual CUTE SHOES once again. Yes. I. Will.
Cute shoes, n'est-ce pas? 

I read a lot. Mostly books about feisty women. 
I did some knitting.
 Look at that. I Macgyvered a bread bag clip to keep the yarn from slipping off of the end of the knitting needle.
I won this beautiful necklace of a swinging girl from Coulda Shoulda Woulda's Instagram giveaway that I was not even aware that I had entered. Thank you so much Naomi. It is PERFECT.  
I took lots of scenic car drives.
This is the gorgeous Self Realization Fellowship In Encinitas, California all lit up for the holidays.
And I did a bit of on-line shopping. This 70's hippie dress is from Thriftwares Vintage.
I just love it so much. I can't wait to wear it out in public while wearing SHOES.

So CHEERS to a HAPPY HEALTHY Running Around Doing What You Want New Year for EVERYONE!!!
So what do YOU do to help pass the time when you are housebound?
I'll be recycling Radiant Orchid at Spy Girl's 52 Pick-me-up: Pantone Party
