The sun has been extra good to me this week! No clouds so that means full days of picture opportunities! Here's a few glimpses as to how things have been looking around here lately...
My birthday dress I mentioned earlier! Someone grabbed it from right under me at the flea market - when she held it up to the vendor and asked for a price I almost died. I had just shuffled around some ratty blouses and she must have seen that peeking out just a second before I did. Luckily she wasn't happy with the $20 price tag - there were some stains... So she put it down and as soon as it hit the table I grabbed it. I almost had a heart attack in those moments between.. I'll pay $20 for a silk/lace 20s dress any day. After a gentle soak in oxy clean/palmolive all is well!
From that same vendor I bought this beautiful 30s pale pink lace body suit that turns into shorts. I almost didn't buy it. I was two rows over when I finally saw the light about how perfect it is to layer with skirts and blouses and cardigans. You can just about see it in this photo...
I received a really sweet package from from emily last week - these pretty drying flowers were tucked inside along with a realllllllly adorable stuffed bunny.

On the sweetsie animal note, I found this funny little ratty cat for the collection (also from Alameda).
And these lovely little cat figurines I picked up at Saipua a few weeks ago. Those orange ranunculus are now dead but I'm having a hard time throwing them out - ranunculus die in such a nice way!
. . .
And then of course there's Westley. Best little bud ever! I take approximately 25 photos of him a day - trying to be good and not upload everryy single onee.

I've been working on getting a big etsy update together. I think it'll be tomorrow. There's some really good stuff! I think this has been my favorite flea market haul and I hope you'll agree!! I'm also going to be putting a few things on ebay too. I'll be sure to post about it as soon as things fall into place. I'm still working on getting it all together!
I decided to sell it! The auction will be up Sunday evening! I'll update the blog w/ a link!
