midweek menagerie

a collection of thoughts and things from my week..

vintage wicker bag-Cookie K's Vintage
dress/brown tights-f21
brown gimmiks-blowfish
bag/velvet blazer/necklace/bow tie-vintage

vintage bow tie+skinny belt=cuteness

thrifty finds-

Picked up this 70's dressmaking book to add to my collection, I've managed to find quite a few great vintage sewing books! I also found this lovely vintage fabric in a pretty autumnal print, I adore the tan background and rust,mustard,and olive tiny florals. I'm hoping to make a vintage inspired dress in a similar shape to my favorite above but modified with short sleeves and a cream peter pan collar!

love the scalloped edge on these pale yellow vintage gloves

mail call-

I love getting things in the mail! It's usually just junk mail and materials for the shop but this week was particularly exciting haha. My new pieces from modcloth came in at lightening speed, they were here in just 2 days! I snagged these lovelies in the last hurrah sale..don't miss out!

Anticipated Arrival dress


modcloth goodies and the new nylon mag
love my prints from Alice B. whimsical
Her shop is 30% off!

apple picking-

Luke and I went to our local orchard for apple picking and it was the most perfect fall day! We've been having a staycation this week and just hanging out and visiting the places we love around town. We're going to get sushi for lunch and make a fall feast later with roasted chicken/veggies,homemade apple pie, and hot apple fall food!

I had this song in my head the whole it
like an apple on a tree
hiding out behind the leaves
I was difficult to reach
but you picked me

I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

You were able to find quite a few awesome finds in the sale section of Modcloth. I keep adding and taking things away from my "cart" many beautiful choices. Not enough money.

hi Krystle
I love looking at the photos on your blog
as they are always more than just photos,
evoking thoughts ... a feeling and a mood
that you just want to place yourself in
... just plain inspiring
