Life Lately

Hello Lovelies!! Happy Monday. I apologize I have been MIA and might be until the end of this week. I have been busy creating Black Friday ads, rummaging estate sales, and seeing my brothers show (twice this weekend) - IT WAS FANTASTIC BY THE WAY!! I am continually blown away by how much he is improving in his music, dancing, and acting. I know I am his sister and all...but seriously, the kid is going to make it big. Haha. Seriously though! I wish I had some video to prove it. I feel a vlog coming on...

I have Thursday and Friday off this week and I am beyond excited about it. I have so many of your lives to seriously catch up on! Is it weird that my blogging friends come up in my every day convo's with people who don't even know them? I really just miss you all. I am so thankful for Instagram because at least I can stay semi up to date when I have been away from my computer.

Good things are happening this four day weekend:
1. Family, friends, and food - of course!!
2. Staying in my pj's and catching up on all of your lives in the blogging world!
3. Black Friday - mainly excited for the thrift sales.
4. Seeing Breaking Dawn pt. 2 &&&&& the new Abe Lincoln movie.

Abrahammy is equally excited about his namesake's movie - trust me! Tehehe.

5. Starting research and branding for my online store!
6. Creating an inventory of my pyrex....yeah, it has gotten that bad. On the plus side - it will help me figure out what is heading to etsy ;]

Pretty darn excited. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have some fun things in store for the up coming week. Take care!

Thrifted Thursday - Feelin' Goovy

Hi everyone! How's it going? Have any fun plans for the weekend? I am looking forward to half off sales at my favorite thrift spots for the holiday :] Other than that I have no major plans. I can't wait for the following weekend because my brother will be starring in his fall play - Lysistrata Jones - a smart pop musical comedy loosely based on Aristophanes' ancient Greek antiwar comedy. The title characters, Lysistrata Jones, is a modern-day cheerleader who convinces her squad to stop "giving it up" to their boyfriends on the Athens University basketball team until the team ends their long losing streak and wins a game, Librettist Douglas Carter Beane was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Tony Award for best book of a musical for Lysistrata Jones, "a musical about Faith, Hoops and Chastity." - Henry is playing the lead basketball player and love interest. I am assuming it will be pretty similar to High School Musical, haha.

Anywhooo... let's get back on track. It is Thrifted Thursday, and I have been up to a lot of thrifting. As I announced earlier in the week - I have decided to open up a vintage shop at the beginning of next year - I am pretty excited about it. I will have a legitimate reason to keep up my bad thrifting habits, haha. Here is a mini glimpse at some of my recent finds -

Vintage Dresses Vintage Dresses Vintage Dress

I found these groovy dresses on Sunday. They were half off since they had been sold as "Halloween Costumes", which meant I picked them up for $2 & $5. I really want to go to some ball with the Brady Bunch in the yellow dress, haha.


If you follow me on Instagram these books will look familiar to you. I scooped up copies of the 1957 edition of Oliver Twist, 1958 edition of Vanity fair, and 1960's editions of Little Men and Best in Children's Books set. They were all in beautiful condition aaaand I am totally a sucker when it comes to judging a (literal) book by it's cover.

I had to save the best for last (in my opinion). I added a huuuge chunk to my pyrex collection over the weekend. I found pyrex cups for 50 cents each aaand had a $20 coupon to use at one of my favorite thrift stores. This = mega pyrex haul (plus the two pieces of fireking and glassbake). I can't wait to make all of my Thanksgiving dishes with all of my new pyrex. It is going to be on pretty Thanksgiving. Tehehe.

Do any of you collect pyrex? It is quite addicting. Anywho. I hope you have a beautiful day.

Toy Army Tuesday - Restored.

Hi all! Another Toy Army Tuesday post here. This is the second part of my Kenner Blythe post from last week. I found Juniper (my 1972 Kenner Bltyhe) last weekend for $3 dollars at a flea market!! Basically, my dreams came true that night. Anywho, Juniper was a hot mess. Her hair was frizzy and tangled, her feet and face were dirty, and her dress was covered in dust. Juniper was in some serious need of some TLC. That night I went home and immediately researched how to fix her hair. These are some shots of her mid and post-makeover.

Did I mention that her pull string works along with her eyes? Score!

My Blythes

She is the perfect addition to my collection. I am still in shock about finding her. Minor flaws and all - she is perfect to me.

I am completely aware that I am wayyyy too nerdy about my Blythe dolls, but when you search for a doll for that long it is bound to happen. Haha. Have any of you found anything exciting lately? I would love to hear about it and your collections :]

Give a hoot

Hi lovelies! How was your weekend? Mine was nice and relaxing. I had a fun date night with Brian, went to a drive-in, and got my thrift on - nothing to complain about over here. Life has been really good lately, just busy beyond belief. I can't believe we are already in to November. My one year blogaversary is coming up at the end of the month! Oh my. I am hoping to put together a special giveaway for you all. I am excited for this week - I have a weeks worth of posts! It has been far too long. I am finally getting in to the groove of my long commute and balancing life. Wahoo. Anywho... here is a mini glimpse in to my life lately.


For my instagram buds - you have seen this (sorry), but for those of you who do not follow me on IG - this is what I have been up to. Basically, a whole lot of thrifting. Something about the cold weather makes me want to rummage through old things. I have found a lot of goodies though! I have added quite a bit to my pyrex collection (I will show you more on Thursday) and I have been putting my thrift finds to good use - I absolutely adore the dress I am wearing in the photo above. I wore this dress out on my date with Brian. It is a silk number from an estate sale down the street from me.

I need to cut down on my thrifting. I have officially decided though that I am going to open up shop at the beginning of next year (so I guess disregard that first statement - haha). Why not put my thrifting obsession to good use and share my finds with everyone? I am pretty excited about it.

I hope you all are having a beautiful Monday :]
