lazy Sunday

Lately I've been feeling pretty uninspired by my closet. I don't know what it is - but getting dressed has been impossible and I feel like my outfits have consisted of the same few shirts/skirts/dresses rotated on a weekly basis. I'm watching three amazing blouses on ebay right now, they end tonight so - fingers crossed!!

So, since I have no outfit posts, or new and exciting happenings to share here's the little bits of clutter and junk I've been happy to look at every day. I'd show more but there's too much stuff laying around and it'd probably make you feel crazy at the sight of it!

I've been spending most of my free time by this window lately. The two pillowcases are from my gram's attic and the three quilts were found in the same room. I'm determined to find all my linen's from my gram's house and I'm sure that it won't be that difficult to do.

This is a little snippet of my bottle collection and only a small, small portion of my glass insulators. The big bottle with the stopper is my newest addition which was found in my gram's china closet.

Actually, I take back what I said about having a lack of clothing inspiration, it's just cold weather clothing that's gotten me down. Friday night I was taking a little nap and I woke up to Alice throwing this little house dress on my head. I think this is the best way to wake up from a nap and I CAN'T wait to wear this dress all by itself come warm days. I love antique malls in New Hampshire, and I love Alice.

This is one of the walls of our extra room which acts as my closet/work room .. it's totally unorganized but I've been working on the walls as a means to clear up clutter. I just put the clutter on the walls instead of finding a normal spot for it! I recently purchased that hat at Artifaktori and I can't wait until beach weather to wear it with red lips and big sunglasses. The top of my windowsill is also acting as a temporary home for my newly acquired wooden thread spool collection - also found in my gram's attic.

We found this set of wooden drawers at our favorite flea market. It used to hold little tools, now it holds all my shipping needs. And it's a nice place for my glass bottles and other silly junk.

My room, and all sorts of dresses piled atop each other.

I know I've already posted a photo of these suitcases but I don't think I've ever shown off the box in the middle. I found that when Sarah came to visit. It was purchased at the same flea market we got the drawers at and it's one of my favorite things! It's an old turn of the century tea box!

And then there's me, amidst more clutter and borrowing a camera from a friend since I dropped mine and now it DOESN'T work anymore. Luckily I have some very kind friends who'll let me borrow theirs for the time being - but, every penny I make at Mass Market is going to go to the New Camera fund.

So, there are a few exciting things coming up in the very near future. First - the Bazaar Bizarre on Sunday December 7th. I won't be selling anything but my bffffff Alice of Forest Bound will be selling a whole lot of really wonderful things and I'll be her little assistant for the day! Every time she finishes something new I tell her she can't sell it because I'm going to buy it - so, trust me - it's going to be amazing!

This morning she updated her etsy shop with really wonderful limited edition crystal necklaces (I helped model!!) they won't be for sale at the market - so you all should scoop one up now!! (Alice also has the best packaging for her things as well, so that's even more of an incentive to hop on over to her shop!)

And then the following Sunday is Mass Market at Mass Art! I'll be sharing a table with Alice and my friend Katharine who'll be baking cupcakes. Vintage clothing and cupcakes, how could one table get any better???

The cold weather is here and it's not budging. I made a promise to myself not to turn into a 100% anti-social lazy hermit this winter. Things were looking grim for a while, but I'm hoping to shake the lazy chatter bones once and for all! (Of course I haven't figured out how, except for making a pinky promise to myself that I'll be good and stay out of bed!)
