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 :]

  3. It seems pretty natural for you to run a vintage shop. You always find the most amazing thrifted items!

    1. Thank you! I need to put my hoarding to good use and work on letting go, haha. It isn't even really funny. I am really passionate about it though, so I am pretty darn excited.

  4. My sister-in-law had an owl cookie jar just like that one on the side of her house covered in dirt. When I asked about it she said, "Oh that was here when we bought the house. I've been meaning to throw it out." GASP! Can you even imagine?! You better believe it came home with me ;)I gave it to my best buddy and I always ask for it back, lol!
