Cold Shoulders

When Life Hands Me Lemons…

After an online search for thrifted destroyed jeans, I looked at the unsellable jeans in my own Poshmark closet and had a moment.  I realized that I had been attempting to sell a perfect fitting pair (here) because of a couple loose threads while spending my time looking for a new pair with multiple holes and damage.  I am not … Continue reading When Life Hands Me Lemons…
