What I Wore (Pinterest Inspired)

What's that rule about when to wear white?


Once I saw this pin, all those rules flew out the window........

Annnnd I already had everything I needed to recreate it.  No shopping necessary.  I love when Pinterest helps me shop my own closet.........

Since I don't have a yellow necklace, I opted for a vintage turquoise piece.  I love turquoise and chambray together.  And vintage is always good.


About the whole white before Memorial Day business......I say rules schmules.

The only thing daring about wearing white right now is that I wore it to work.  In an elementary school.

And that usually ends badly.

Instagram Roundup

Lately - as seen on Instagram - from roller coasters to books......with a dose of vintage, of course.

On the subject of vintage.......I bought a cute metal table.

Vintage metal tables are one of my many few weaknesses.

I finished a book.

This.  Book.  

No spoilers here, but if you've read it, you know  You knooow.

I fell in love with an old office cabinet at Pheona's.

I decided that at $225, it wasn't meant to be.

That's not to say I didn't wake up the next day thinking about the silly thing.

Another accidental twin day........

This always cracks us up.

Outlaw Run happened.

This.  Coaster.  The World's Steepest Wooden Coaster.


My throat hurt from screaming the.whole.time.

But I'd do it again.

What I Wore (addictions)

I am addicted to Hello Apparel.  I'd happily take one of everything in their shop.  So when a floral version of their signature t-shirt came out, I had to have it..........

A springy t-shirt paired with a mint cardigan was the perfect outfit for welcoming Easter weekend.

And while we're talking about addictions, I might have another new one.

Toms wedges........


These are my first pair of Toms.

(I know.  I live under a rock.)

Anyway, I had been looking for a nice neutral wedge.  One that would match everything.  One that wasn't tooooo towering, as I'm already gifted in the height department.  And most importantly, one that was comfortable.

I knew when I tried them on, that these were it.......

Now I'm wondering what other wonderful Toms stuff I've been missing out on.  

Don't tell me though.

My willpower is teetering.

Etsy Love

One of my favorite Etsy shops has done it again! 

Ooh Baby Designs just rolled out her new spring infinity scarves.  And of course, I'm in love.  This spring she's continuing to feature her signature chevrons which are very popular, but she's also adding lightweight plaids to her shop!  You know how I feel about plaid.

I couldn't wait to style my favorite of the bunch.........

This scarf had me the moment I saw it on Instagram.  I love the soft colors.  That it is two-sided.  And how perfectly lightweight it is for spring and summer.

Now that it's finally warming up, I'm able to break out three-quarter length sleeves and cuffed jeans!

It really isn't flip flop weather around here yet, but it's coming.  I can feel it in the air.

I just couldn't help it that particular day.

My first pedicure of the season was begging to be seen.

April marks the third anniversary of my booth at Relics.......

I can't believe I've been at it for three years!  This little endcap is truly one of my happy places.

I've learned a lot along the way ~ what does or doesn't sell.  I've branched out ~ vintage clothing and a second booth.  And, honestly, I never get tired of keeping this space up or hunting for goodies.

I'd be a very good full-time booth keeper upper.  Or the next girl American Picker.  (I can climb old barn ladders and sift through rusty gold with the best of em.)

What's sold lately?  Afghans, aprons, and.......

That little mid-century end table, the purple dress, allllll the hand mixers, and the green watering can.

What will hopefully sell......

Dresses, planters, fun floral things!  Lots of spring touches were added to the booth this weekend! 

And to my local friends, I apologize for my appearance this weekend, if you happened to come across a disheveled mess who was staging said booth.

I always think, "I surely won't be running into anyone."

And then I do.  Looking like a total bag lady.
