Thrifting for the Soul

Yesterday was sooooo good for my soul.  The boy took me on a thrifting date on a whimsy when he was starting to feel better yesterday, and I could not have needed it more!

So here is our day in photos! (camera photos)...

I have been sporting some messy hair lately :)

Enjoyed wearing my vintage leather boots with my floral tights.

I love it when James wears his Skyline Fever shirts, its like they were made just for him....  isnt he the cutest???

I wore my little green dress that I got from Ami's closet... and one of my favorite vintage blue velvet jackets Ive had since I was a teen...

We hit up 4 thrift stores!!!!

saw the open road.  one of my favorite things is to just drive.

listened to some Alkaline Trio...

went to our favorite coffee shop, Spirit Wind Java, and got chai tea ice cream smoothies...

I got the sun on my face!  that hasnt happened in a while :)

I got to sit next to my boy.  love him.

my favorite score of the day was this little doll.  She is the cutest little seniorita ive ever seen.  The way she is made, she appears to be pretty old, but I dont know how old.  I just love her little hand sewn mexican dress.  ahhhhh.... I bought her for my hope chest for our one day little girl, but she is so cute, I think she just might stay out!

and I got lots of cute new fabrics to play with... and as soon as I got home, my sewing bug came back like crazy!!!!!!  Which Im excited about b/c I havent made any clothes since before thanksgiving.  I cant believe its been that long.  Ive just been making jewelry and such.  So I am thrilled.  Between other things I have to do today with work, I will be sewing!!!

I feel renewed because of our little day trip yesterday.  I think it was all I needed.  Thank you James.

AND.... James is getting crazy & spontaneously offered up another sale in his shop!  TODAY & TOMORROW ONLY get 20% anything with a SKELETON KEY on it!!!!  woooooo hoooooo!
