Last fall, Maikeni blogi-part of me nominated me for this sunshine award.
VI. Name three of your best thrifted finds.
|1. Dark brown thrifted boots|
I've owned these for more than a year.
These cost $1.00.

Middle and right photo: brown skirt and blouse were thrifted
I like these brown boots. They are comfortable, and perfect for winter weather. I don't have to worry about my feet getting wet in them, or slipping and falling. Because yes, I'm clumsy like that.
|2. Thrifted pointy toe black boots|
I just got these in the fall of 2012.
These were about $2.00.
|Left photo: black, grey, and cream skirt is thrifted.|
Middle photo: purse is thrifted.
|3. Thrifted tan suede wrap around ankle booties|
I think I got these in the late summer of 2012.
I think I paid around $2.00.
|Left photo: brown lace blouse and brown skirt were thrifted.|
Middle photo: belt was thrifted
I know Maiken only asked for my 3 best, but I'm going to show more. That way, I can pretend I'm some rebellious rule breaker or something.
|4. Thrifted mulberry corduroy pants|
I got these in early fall of 2012.
These were probably $2.00.
|Left photo: tie dye t-shirt was thrifted|
Right photo: black embroidered blouse with cream sleeves was thrifted
| 6. Thrifted Lace Blouse|
I've also had this blouse for more than 6 years.
It might have cost $2.00.
|Right Photo: pink blouse and denim skirt were thrifted.|
|7. Thrifted fringed cream cardigan|
I've had this for more than 5 years.
It was about $2.00.
|Both left and right photo skirts were thrifted.|
|8. Thrifted lace skirt|
I've had this for more than 2 years.
I paid $1.00.
|Top right photo: My red wine colored ankle boots were thrifted.|
How did I determine best? I based it on comfort, how I feel when I wear them, how often I wear them, or how long I've had them.
|Speaking of things I've had for a long time.|
At the beginning of this week, I rediscovered this old art journal, from fall of 2008. I used watercolor, oil pastels, and collage
This book is the journey,
a dedication of my moments.
This journal was sitting there, in a stack of journals, unfilled and forgotten. Does that mean my moments were unfilled and forgotten? ;)
I've been listening to this song a lot on repeat.
I go through these periods where I just can't get enough of it. Sigh.
