Thrifty Finds...

The weather has been so gloomy here for past few days! I am longing for some sunshine!! However, when it is nowhere near the next best thing is thrifting!It never fails to brighten up my day. I hit up our local DAV tonight after work and found some cuties!


I plan on altering the dress some to make it fit. I love the collar! I also found those boots that appear to be brand new and that amazing spoon/fork designed thermos to add to my collection.

I also received some goodies from Amazon courtesy of christmas gift cards!


My record player was missing the needle and we finally hunted down the correct one and it is on its way. I can't wait to start listening to my albums.

Last night I got my hair cut and decide to have her add several layers. I really like how it turned out and now my hair actually has some volume and maybe a little bit of wave to it??? Hey a girl can dream! I am still tryin to figure out why my brother is the one to get the head of curls!

Not sure if you can really tell in the picture. Also sorry for all the exciting bathroom shots. It is the only room in the house where I can get a decent picture when I get home.

I finished up my happy mail last night too. I will post some pictures when I know that they have received their goodies. Now... I have to make a promise to myself to at least complete one assignment from Style School. My supplies are staring me in the face!

Hope everyone's Wednesday was fabulous and you were able to find a little *sunshine* today!
