34th Wedding Anniversary!

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. Feel so blessed to be married to such an amazing husband and father. Am truly thankful to the Lord for his many blessings. Tonight, as I read my devotions, pulled out one of my bible book-marks featuring our wedding photo from 34 yrs ago (made with thrift-store ephemera). Just a reminder that little hand-made items can truly be precious.

Old vintage cards (easily found via thrifting) make pretty ephemera bookmarks!

One of my all time favorite personal bookmarks!  Am planning to make one for my newly-wed "hooked on thrifting" daughter as well. Will post watch for it!

Outfit L-O-V-E

I love this outfit so much!  This sweater I'm wearing is now one of my favorite new GO-TO pieces; It''s vintage, made of great quality material, and has a collar with buttons, so it easily can turn into a turtleneck if I want. :) Also found H&M highwaisted jeans, which fit perfectly.  Finally, love this little top from a thrift store I purchased awhile back - purple with a pretty flower print.

A rainy Saturday! (thrift-store raincoat & bag)

We had a much needed down-pour of rain this morning. Got out my thrift-store rain-coat and rain bag! They were perfect for today's weather! Love finding classic pieces like these! $5.00 for both. What a deal! Hope you all have a great week-end!

Nylon rain coat with hood! $3.00

Nylon bag with zippered outside compartments. Perfect for cell phone, keys receipts etc.! So convenient! $2.00

Last but not least a thrift-store umbrella. Love the little pink flowers on this one!  $1.00

A "Pop of Blue" returns!

Got out a few of my blue thrift-store vases again. Love how these freshen up the decor. I enjoy the summer vibe even in the fall! 

A pop of blue! 

Found these little matching candle holders for t-lights as well. Love these!

Victoria's Secret PJ Set

Ok,..I know this blog is a little silly, but I love these Victoria's Secret (VS) pajamas.  Who can resist picking this PJ set up?! ($8.00 at Goodwill, washed and now like brand new ;)

I love PJ sets!
Silky and Comfy.
Ready to cuddle up and watch a movie.

Mums for my Birthday!

Celebrated my Birthday this weekend. My sweet husband, surprised me with mums that he picked from our garden. Popped them into a thrift store vase and voila! Pure bliss!

My sweet husband picked me mums from our garden for my Birthday! Love these! You can also get a peek here of my vintage wall-paper (found at a thrift-store). It is hard to find, so if you are lucky enough to find a pattern that you like, my advice is to snatch it up!  

Every fall, I look forward to our garden mums in full bloom!
