Yesterday and today I seemed to have really good luck finding cool things!Lately I've been trying not to look at things as "good" or "bad",sometimes its just perspective.Yesterday when I went to get the mail I let the dogs out with me so they could handle their business.Lug does his normal annoying thing and takes off about 7 houses up the block and then trots his way back home "blessing" any tree,car tire,pole or mailbox that crosses his path on the way.I hate when he does this but yesterday it worked out in my favor because as I walked up the street to grab him I noticed that 4 houses up from us the neighbor was throwing away this!Awesome gravel art!Just tossing it to the curb.So thanks Lug,your normal annoying habit helped me rescue this lovely bit of vintage.
Later on I went to an estate warehouse and scored some great vintage pieces!Hats,jewelry,dresses and knick knacks.Oh and this Barbie case!
The place had a ton of dolls which they used in some of their Halloween decor.
Some Christmas stuff had been put out too.I LOVED the box for the Christmas ornaments.
This is one of the dresses I picked up.I got them all listed except a hot little 60's cocktail dress that needs a hem repair.
Today as I got the kids dressed and put on their shoes I noticed both of them seemed to have grown!I just bought them new shoes 2 months ago but you know kids,they're always growing and sometimes faster than we'd like them too.So I did something I shouldn't have.I took them to Nordstrom Rack.Yes,you know what that means.Mommy got herself a pair of new shoes too.I found these awesome Poetic Licence for 50% off what the normally retail for.
My closet is full of $2-$15 items I've thrifted but my shoe habit is a bit more expensive and unfortunately I have like Carrie Bradshaw shoe lusts but MY salary,thus Nordstrom Rack IS my friend...just not a friend when I'm trying to save,cruel temptress in those cases.
