not sure how to put this...

my brain has pooped and i am not sure what else to write except, look at the awesome stuff i got while thrifting this friday :D i had a post planned but the film won't be developed until tomorrow, so this is a back up post. the developer dude at walgreens is... let me put it mildly, not all there....to say the least bringing in film while he is working makes me cringe...with that said...here they are...hehe

 i was super stoked to see the fabric of this dress peaking out amongst the other dresses and was even more excited that it actually fit and get this...pockets! i will always instantly love a dress more because it had pockets...who doesn't like a pocket <3

love me a wrinkly shirt :)

this was an ultimate find for me. it reminds me of a shirt my grandmother would wear and it was really exciting to see it fit too! these usually don't look good on because they are always boxy and then too big,  booyah <3

tribal designs always catch my eye and this i saw after i was already in line to checkout...i can't wait to wear it when it gets a bit more chilly.

i love opening my cupboards and seeing everything stored in pretty jars, now my trail mix is so fancy!

this might not seem very exciting but let me tell you, it is....now, whenever i am making jewerely i dont have to get up and walk to the bedroom to see what my creation looks like on...i can just sit in my chair and decide right then and there...it is really the little things that make life good, hehe

well i hope you all had a fantastic weekend and were able to find some treasures too!

  1. You look super adorable in that dress and I love the sandals! It really is the little things in life that make it that much better. I'm a sucker for pretty jars too and I got some new ones recently as well!

  2. I've been wanting some glass jars for my stuff in the kitchen. I've taken to saving old pickle and pasta sauce jars and then making them pretty with beads, paint and fabric. I use them for sugar, salt, pasta, anything! They're amazing to see when I'm having a bad day 'cause pretty things always cheer me up, haha.

  19. I love it when op shopping (as we call it in my part of the world) all works out. I really love the first dress and pockets on a frock are just dreamy!!! There are not enough in the world!

    Also - I do love that hand held mirror - I've always wanted a big hand held mirror. They always seemed like something a very glamourous lady would own^^
