Friday's Frock and I Am Proud of My Size link up

I'm entering this Apt. 9 skirt ($7.99) in Thrift Town's quarterly "What A Find!" contest under the Fashion Item category.

I also picked up this round Conair brush for $1.49 and a darling box of watercolor notecards for $1.99.  The brush I will soak in ammonia to clean.  The notecards, along with other items such as lotion gift sets and lap quilts will go for Home Instead Senior Care.  You pick a tag from the Christmas tree and fill the items on the list.  

Linking with newly discovered (to me) Nearsighted Owl - I am a sassy size 12!

The Nearsighted Owl's mission:
All sizes are beautiful! Don't be ashamed of your number or keep it from living your life and doing what you love. There is no perfect or wrong size. It doesn't determine our worth and nobody has the right to judge someone's health by their size. So let's show the world that every size can be happy and that we are not ashamed!

How to participate:
I would love to see all different sizes represented in this link up. Whether you are a 0 or 32, participate! This is a weekly feature so each link up will be open for one week. You can add your link anytime during the week. All genders, sexes and non-genders are welcome to join in. Use whatever sizing you are most familiar with. You can link up with me every week with a new post or join in every once in a while! The rules are simple. Post a photo of yourself on your blog, feeling confident. Post a full body shot, so head to toe! State your size in your blog post or with a graphic on your photo. No diet talk, weight loss talk, negativity or any type of body shaming allowed. This is about being happy with your size and shape, not because it is socially acceptable, healthy or better than others. Then come back here and add your link using the link tool at the end of this post.

Along those same lines body-positive Jes of The Militant Baker debunks the list of

I will be linking in with some of her posts.
