Thrifting the day away

Yesterday was the most fun day I've had in a while! I spent the entire day with one of my BEST friends, Shelby Ballou of Moment of Clarity! We went thrifting, visited a pet store where I almost got killed by a macaw, ate at Pho, and took some pictures for my shop! (Please take a second to check it out! I'm really very proud.. it's become my baby!) Thanks for being such a great model, Shelby!
We also stopped by the local antique mall and I was drooling over all of the old books.  I seriously could spend a whole day at this particular vendor's space.  There was an amazing scrapbook from the 1940s, following a family on one of their vacations! I seriously need to start buying antique books so I can fill my dream bookcase one day!
I'm obsessed with my new purse.  I thrifted it yesterday and it's BEAUTIFUL! Handmade in Italy, genuine leather! Eeeek!
Today there's nothing too excited going on.  I just got home from thrifting, and found two pairs of vintage shoes for the shop that I will be adding soon! I have to FORCE myself to start this paper I told myself would be DONE by today and I haven't even started..!!! Work later, then I get to spend the night with Patrick!
Thanks for the amazing photos, Shelby! See Shelby's take on the day here!
