With very few exceptions, I'm done shopping for winter clothes after December. And let's call a spade a spade - January 1 to Easter is just a black hole of waiting on the warmer weather to appear, which is plenty of time to stock your spring and summer wardrobe. I wanted to let you in … Continue reading What I’m Thrifting: Spring 2018
I blogged here a few months ago about the nursery for Baby Girl (we are sooooo close to a name!). I have been wanting to make a floral mobile to go above her crib, and this week I found the time to start! Actually, that's not entirely true. I was procrastinating and decided that playing with … Continue reading A Happy Friday, Indeed.
Goodness, life gets busy... especially this time of year! My theory is that it's partly because everyone is throwing festivals and football parties like it's a blissful 68 degrees outside. We go because "Fall!" and that's what you're supposed to do, yet we all stand in the heat and melt because it still feels like the inside … Continue reading Updates!
It's been awhile since I took the time look through things other than housewares at a thrift store. Partly because we need "house things", but also because normal clothes won't fit/aren't fitting this bump for much longer. However, Mac and I had some time to kill before lunch Friday so we poked around most of Goodwill. Take a … Continue reading Thrift Haul!
This week has been full of progress! When I look at the grand scheme, it's easy to get discouraged because sometimes it seems likes 1 step forward and 3 steps back. Most of my reno time is limited to when our son naps or after he goes to bed at night, so some days it feels like it's moving … Continue reading Baby Steps!
I am a list person. Always have been. My mom says she quit giving me a verbal schedule of our plans for the day when I was about 5 because if it didn't go exactly as planned, I was destined for a come-apart. I'm a bit more flexible these days, but it is rare that I don't … Continue reading Downstairs To-Do’s.
What. A. Whirlwind. The last ten days have been madness! Andrew, Mac, and I headed to Destin for a (very quick) pre-move beach trip. We spent time with Andrew's parents, celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Marina Café with an amazing meal and view, loved on the dads for Father's Day, and got some sand between our toes. While it … Continue reading Update: We are moved!
"Why do you thrift?","What made you start thrifting?", and "Do you thrift everything?... I get these three specific questions a lot, so I thought I'd give you guys some formal answers! Also, almost everything you see in the pictures below is thrifted. Let's get started... Why did I start thrifting? Out of necessity! I love to shop and … Continue reading Thrift Q & A
I love the South. (See that capital letter S?) However, fashion here is a little more rigid than a lot of places in the country. It's sometimes hard to get away from skinny jeans and Michael Kors purses (Those are not terrible things. Everyone, breathe.) I wanted to show you how much fun it can be to play with the thrift store clothing that scares everyone away! From "Granny … Continue reading From Granny to Great!
