Wonderful Walker, Facebook, and HomeMade

The fun things about this outfit:
1. Shirt - 100% HomeMade. This is the second
shirt I ever made. Just fabric & my brain.
2. Leggings - Second Hand
3. Boots - Borrowed
4. Scarf - Gift (Yes. It is now way to hot for scarves!)

Well I've got a list of DIY's that I'd like to get done by mid July. 
Sooo, that means that you should be seeing more of the crafty, 
wingin' it side of me pretty soon!

On Saturday as I stood on a corner advertising our Plant Sale fundraiser, 
a pair of walkers came across the street. Our general reaction to this, is to politely 
step out of their way so we're not in their face screaming "GET YOUR PLANTS!"

But a strange and wonderful thing happened as I made momentarily awkward 
eye contact with one of said walkers. She looked me up and down a few times in 
my running/get-a-tan-on-the-corner clothes and the said, "Hey, I follow your blog."

Say what home girl?

She said, "Yeah, aren't you the blogger from Patterned Love?"

By now I'm seeing fireworks and starting to blush. What? 
Who am I that someone would notice me on the side of the road? 
Who am I that I have a legit home town follower! 
I wanted to do a happy dance involving the stainky leg, disco, and a strange 
shoulder shimmy all while singing Oh Happy Day... 
But then I remembered I was standing next to a High School girl 
who'd just met me that morning. 
Gotta ease people into my crazy, ya know. 
I'm not sure she would have been ready for it.

Needless to say, I was pretty pumped and humbled at the same time. 
Someone knew who I was... And they like me. 
Isn't that funny how we all need validation sometimes? 
I love it how God gives it to us in the funniest, and randomest places. 
Places like a street corner while holding a cut out sign for plants. 
{Girl, you know who you are! Thank you for making my day!}

Psalm 92:1-3
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
    to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
    and your faithfulness by night,
to the music of the lute and the harp,
    to the melody of the lyre.
