Welcome to Dross into Gold
My personal chronicle about transformation, clothing and otherwise!
Now that I’m 62, it’s an interesting time. I love my work (voice actor) and family (a husband I truly adore, children who make my heart ache I’m so proud of them, my delightful grandson, amazing parents, siblings etc). Unfortunately, most of them are pretty far away.
I also love getting clothes from thrift stores, then reworking them into one-of-a-kind pieces. As a confirmed clothes-lover, this satisfies my desire for something new and unique to wear, and satisfies my need to create and recycle at the same time.
During the last few years, I began delving into the blogosphere. I stumbled on a few fashion sites, which led to a few more, and then more! Over the course of time I realized I was changing. I felt more confident in my own personal style as I saw incredible examples that had nothing to do with age, size, or money.
I was reminded of the fact that style can be a profound vehicle for artistic expression and community, which I believe can heal and lead to personal transformation. Hence the inspiration for this blog. Oh, and last but not least, I want to say thanks to my mom, who taught me to sew and to love words.
Welcome to my journey!
