Belts and POTY

Imagine my surprise when I saw one of my old ties -- an item I'd had for years in my closet -- gracing the chic outfit of a fashion-blogger.  One whom I didn't even know and had never seen her blog!

Yes, Megan weaved her magic again.  She transformed the tie into a belt and gave it away as a gift to one of her blogging friends.  I was thrilled when Heather informed me about this.  I'm really pleased to see items from my personal life floating around the blogosphere.

Oh, and a reminder about POTY.  (That's an acronym for Post Of The Year, not toilet-training.)  Please send in any final nominations.  I will present you with a selection of terrific blog-posts soon and then you'll get to vote -- and enjoy them!


  1. Ally,
    Can you please verify if you got my nomination email along with the items we discussed. I never receive a rresponse and wondering if i somehow ended in your spam filter

    Btw the belts are how your ties are ending up all gave me the inspiration to do something with a tie just have to steal one from a friend and borrow a model ;)

    Please email me or respond...especially about what we discussed

  2. That is a Gorgeous belt! Megan is a genius!

  3. WOw Megan has outdone herself !
    She has made several different belts and they are all gorgeous.

  4. Thanks so much for showing this! Megan really did a great job and I am so happy to have been one of the lucky recipients :) I just wish the lighting was better to give the belt the attention it deserves. The kindness of people like you, allows others to spread the fun of fashion all over the blog world!

  5. Thanks for continuing to share my project. I hope to get my room back in order and be able to pull some more ties out. Soon you're ties will be all over the blog-o-sphere if I have anything to say about it. I've already got plans of button flowers being sent out everywhere.

  6. I love this idea. I am all for using items in expected ways -- so much better than throwing them out, right?

  7. Whoa. She's some kind of genius. That's artistry.


  8. Can we get Megan to set up some sort of shop so we can all buy Ally-ties to wear? All in favor raise your hands.

  9. Hi again! Just wanted to let you know that we are now following. I just went through several of your posts and I just love your blog! You seem like such a caring, sweet, and kind person. So glad a tie could bring me to your blog!


  10. Pebble, I got your e-mail and will reply to it by e-mail. Thanks for all the suggestions.
