The Rio Grande flows right through Albuquerque, and I’ve been looking for a small dinghy boat to float around on. Unfortunately, it seems like even the smallest boat is absolutely out of my budget right now, and I may have to settle for a homemade raft. Quite alright though, I made one junior year for physics class, I can sure as hell do it again! I made this raft-ready dress out of an up-cycled worn-in blue plaid, with some scrap rose fabric for the ruffle and waist accents. It’s up on my Etsy shop, along with the Boney Buddy necklace I had mentioned a little while ago. I’ve posted some new vintage finds too, so be sure to take a look: www.etsy.knifesauce.com.
I’m going to have to save rafting for another day though. The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is going on, and they’re supposedly debuting the shopping-cart shaped hot air balloon today.I couldn’t miss that now could I? Hopefully I’ll have pictures to post later.
