virtual goodness

How much do you just LOVE this booth? This peach pit-esque beauty is being sold on craigslist for 300 bones. Time to upgrade to a larger apartment!

Aren't these stairs a fabulous idea? I'm so in love with this site-thanks to Alex for the introduction!

Lindsey and I went on an adventure to the Goodwill today. I lucked out and found a 16 piece, stoneware dinnerware set! Not only is it fabulous, but it doesn't look like it has ever been used. One mug is chipped, but that can be overlooked. The best part? I got it for $7! In addition to my new dinnerware set, I am now the proud owner of two fancy martini glasses, also compliments of the Goodwill.

On the way back from our thrifting adventure we got caught in a spectacular storm. There was plenty of flooding and fallen branches (including one in my front yard). To make it even better, my road was blocked off due to a fallen tree! What a fabulous day!

thrifting adventures

I found this liquor cabinet at rehouse. I think it is absolutely fabulous and is now in dire need of being used. The ice bucket was found at a thrifting paradise in Lima, while the shaker, glasses, and stir sticks were picked up at Amber's neighborhood yard sale. The awful liquor was a gift from Rachael-I'm sure she was happy to part with it.

These trays came in a set of 4 and were also purchased at the store in Lima. They work perfectly for cheese and crackers!

This extra comfy, fancy ottoman was also picked up on the Lima thrifting adventure. The legs fold down for easy storage or pillow usage.

This fabulous suitcase was found during Amber's neighborhood sale. It came with a small carrying case that went to Rachael. The luggage tag says it traveled from Rochester, NY to Tampa, FL--how perfect!

The bottles and purse were found during the enormous Browncroft yard sale. I'm hoping to put rice and other kitchen things in the bottles.

everyone loves a good onesie

My good friend Amber will be having a daughter, Aidyn, in August and Rachael was kind enough to help me screenprint this fabulous onesie for her. I'm hoping to make a few more before Aidyn arrives!

a traveling must-have

I am currently babysitting for a child who will soon be on his way to sunny California. His upcoming adventure got me thinking about traveling and a fantastic passport holder I recently found on buyolympia. This particular holder is entitled Assume Crash Positions and fits a passport and two forms of identification. Fabulous!

The inside is made from paint swatches (how ingenious!).

For those seeking a less morbid passport holder, tinymeat has other fabulous selections on buyolympia and etsy.

ode to the oyster

I recently bought this ring on etsy from ringsbymarie. I've been on a pearl kick lately and am quite thrilled to add this to the collection. My next step is to find a strand of pearls similar to those seen (stereotypically) on 1950s housewives.

fabulous dresses

I have a mild obsession with dresses from the 40s and 50s. Here are a few I found on ebay. I would love to spend a night out on the town in one of these!
This dress even comes with a reversible jacket! (The other side matches the dress)
