Thrifting Frenzy

Even though the school year is in full swing, I still manage to fit in trips to the thrift!  Usually on Saturdays.  I need my weekly fix!

I always find something to keep.......

That silhouette has already found a spot in my house.  And you know I have a metal table hoarding problem.

The rest should end up in the booth.........

Pyrex is rare at our local thrifts.  When you do find it, the price is usually crazy.  I paid more than I normally would for that bowl, but I just couldn't leave it behind.  

Which means, I might also have separation anxiety when it comes down to it.

Fall Favorites

I love autumn.  It's my favorite season.  It means the temperatures are cooling off, and the holidays are coming!  It means leaves are changing, and it's time to make your favorite soup!

Bonfires!  Hayrides!!  Corn mazes!!!

It means I can break out my flannels and buy fairy tale pumpkins........

Fall means flannel, right?  You must have a flannel shirt!

*   *   *   *

I can clip the tags off a new sweatshirt and drink pumpkin spice lattes.......

Fall means warm drinks like hot apple cider!  You must sip on a seasonal treat!!!

*   *   *   *

 I can dress up the front porch........

Fall means mums and pumpkins!  You must decorate for the season!!!

*   *   *   *

And finally, I can scoop up $6.00 scarves.......

Because you must have at least one great, new scarf for the season.  (Even though you told yourself you wouldn't buy any more scarves.)

And because buffalo plaid everything.

Red and black checks forever.

What I Wore (to a reception)

Once upon a time I churned out weekly outfit posts!  Now they happen once in a blue moon.

Well, that blue moon must have been out last night.  Or maybe it was out the night before I found this dress.  I don't know.  But this new, favorite dress of mine is worth an outfit post.


I was in desperate need of a new outfit for a wedding reception.  The evening was going to be a little on the chilly side for this time of year, so I wanted something that was sort of a transition type piece.  And Express delivered with the perfect summer-is-on-its-way-out-and-fall-is-coming dress.

A little black lace + some tribal embroidery + three-quarter length sleeves = perfect!!!  I love this dress so much.

I even wore it to work on Monday. 

Now on to the fun that was had.........

The lovely bride is a longtime friend of ours (as is the groom).  They had the most beautiful reception ever.  I seriously felt like I was at a private party for a celebrity couple.  It.  Was.  Amazing.

And so is this dress!  

Which is currently on sale!

It comes in ivory too!

Go get one!

Thrifting Frenzy

Something during my last round of thrifting had me focusing on cold weather wares.

Maybe it was our week-long heat advisory.  Maybe it was because I had my first pumpkin spice latte.

Whatever it was, I walked away with a few fun vintage sweaters, afghans, and my favorite item - ice skates.......

I can't pass up a good pair of ice skates, if the price is right.  They are great for Christmas and winter decorating!

Something else I can't pass up is a cute mid century end table........

I love the caps on the legs and the star detail on the side.

(This is already in the booth with a certain mid century lamp perched on top.)

And while we're talking about the booth, it recently got a makeover........

I finally thrifted enough florals to make a gallery wall!  And that silly wall makes me happy.  I almost don't want any of it to sell.

Wait a minute.

I totally don't mean that.
