A Sad Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 76

Paying my respect. Not much to say except that MCA will be sorely missed.

Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 75

Over the weekend I enjoyed some tea with some good friends in Niles. Niles is a small little town near
Fremont (do you see niles written out in the hills?). Afterwards we spent a good two hours in a record shop and loaded up on some good O' fashion vinyl and did some vintage clothing shopping at The Amoire Closet! More photos of the fun things I purchased coming soon.

P.S. Happy Birthday K!!

•Working on 2 major projects.

•Helping a friend plan her wedding.

•Reseeded our lawn.

•Our 16 year old dryer died.

•Which lead us to rebuild the laundry room.

•Feeling like I'm never catching up.

Polaroid Tuesday :: Week 73

“I think that the collection is very much sophisticated and very woman. It's elegant, not at all sportswear. But it's very much like daytime, but elegant.”

Recently Thrifted...

I've been keeping true to my goal list of Thrifting more.

I love this wood cake stand! Although it's only about7" wide or so, I imagine using this in a woodland themed party, covered with moss and mushrooms.

I'm usually not a huge fan of gold but these gold boxes do catch my eye, especially when it's lined with red soft fabric.

The earrings were also thrifted. They are vintage screw on earrings but I find myself removing them after about 4 hours of use.

The last but certainly not least, is this butterfly enclosed in a round glass dome frame. This will be fabulous amongst a table of curiosities and found objects.
