Vintage Love: Something Blue


About once a year, all self-control flies out the window, and I purchase something big.

It's all Pheona's fault.

Pheona's is a monthly antique sale in Billings, MO.  The vendors work very hard to curate perfect booths.  The selection is amazing.  The vendors are lovely ~ I always see old friends and meet new friends too.  Also, the prices are great.

And I always fall victim.

Two years ago, I came home with this..........


It now resides in the special room.

Last year, I showed a little more restraint and brought something home that could fit in my car........


It's also in the special room (holding vintage pillows).

But this year.

This.

Year.

I purchased something large again.

Something I'd been dreaming of owning for a very long time.

Something I was sort of scared to mention to the mister.

So I decided to break the news in a public place, with friends by my side.

Friends who like to photograph moments such as these.  Moments where I whisper, "Ijustboughtvintagelockers."


Cheese dip always softens the blow.

The mister took it quite well.  I have a good mister.

And now I have turquoise vintage lockers..........


I never dreamed I'd find a set that were the perfect shade of green-blue. 

But Pheona's did it again!

Vintage locker perfection.

And the mister is still talking to me.

#Winning!
