recent finds: recognized and liked.

It is an exciting moment when the people that run an estate sale company are as excited to see you as you are to see them.  That was my morning.  There is one particular lady that I just adore.  She is so sweet and makes me feel so awesome for my vintage style!  She gives me very incredible deals too.  But that is because I  am a big spender , which is probably they also get excited to see me. Can I pretend it's for my personality?? I may have cleaned out the closet, much to other ladies despair.  

There were a few women I ran into that are running a flea market with vendors selling vintage clothes that made sure to give me their card and invite me multiple times.  People appreciate vintage-loving girls with no other place to spend money. 

This is an old dance costume with a skirt that can cover the ruffles.  I love it!

 Here is a very wrinkled peach dress from the 1930s.  This poor thing is in desperate need of dry cleaning.

 My favorite type of vintage- Formal lace dresses!

 Okay, as soon as I slip these beauties onto my feet, they will never come off.

 The vintage purses are in such excellent condition, it's hard to believe they're actually vintage!

 All of these patterns are incredible.








 This is a quilt- all of the single blocks are finished. I just need to sew them all together and finish with backing.
 Lots of crochet hooks and knitting needles!

I am going to display this in my bathroom.  I love her face!

Pretty sparkly buttons!  

So there are all of the great items I bought(along with a few more dresses that need mending and vintage fabric!)

A great estate

Yet another glorious estate sale today! I purchased a large amount of gems so you know what that means- recent finds post! I'll try to get it up soon.

D.I. in photos

Lauren and I went to the d.I. today! We went origionally to buy stuff for girls camp but I ended up buying things completely unrelated. We spent two hours looking throughout the store, having a fabulous time!

what I wore: banjo playin'

Along with sewing, crocheting, and knitting, I am also expanding my talents this summer by mastering the banjo.  I've been taking lessons off and on for a while now.  Today is the first day I have been able to successfully play a song all the way through(pretty exciting stuff for me)!

 I feel like the picture above describes my personality perfectly.  I also think my bangs go with banjos.
