Thrifty thursday.

These little goodies were thrifted last week and I never got around to sharing them. They are pretty darn cute you have been warned. My little shopping buddy autumn helped me find these. We got bored one day and she kept saying she wanted to
go bye bye. So bye by we went to the nearest thrift store that I hadn't been to in a while. There wasn't a whole lot of finds but the goodies I did find made it worth the trip.

1. Cute little yellow bunt pan for $2 that looked brand new very little scratches on the inside and outside. I don't know if it was vintage or not.
2. The CUTEST pink tea pot I have ever seen. Autumn kept saying " T pot T pot" and it's pink it was a score. I have been looking for a cute one for a while now and we found it.
3. Lastly a cute little glass I can use for flowers. I am always collecting these little guys.

This past weekend my mom, step dad and my myself went to one of my favorite antique malls.
Monticello Their garden section is my favorite. It has all the old beat up furniture. It's where I found my dining room table,chairs and office table. Lately I have been on the hunt for something to go next to my fire place to put my dvd player, cable box and all the ugly wires so it's all inside something pretty and kept away. And I found.

And now I have somewhere to put my records. Im still looking for something to go in my bathroom. There is ZERO storage in there no cabinets (besides the tiny one over the sink) no shelves nothing. But it's a small bathroom so it's going to be hard. I think another trip soon is in order. I snapped a few things while I was looking around.

It is defiantly a must to check out if you live in Portland or just visiting. They even have a cafe upstairs so you can have some tea or coffee while you browse. Well I am off to la la land to get some rest and off to Seattle tomorrow for a much needed mini get away.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Little red pumps: A outfit post.

I got the cutest red pumps at target yesterday and broke them in today, (ouch ouch ouch) But it had to be done. I got a few compliments on them today all from dudes who would of thought guys would notice such things, it was defiantly a first for me.

I have been saving for a while for this and researching between a 50mm and 35mm and after picking my friend's brain who has both I went with the 35. And picked her up today, went around snapping photos. That will be another post so it's not a big overdose of pictures. Well I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

It was one of those days

Goodmorning! how's your morning? mine's going great got some good sleep now I am catching up on American horror story have you heard of it? It's interesting and creepy. I only watch it during the day cause other wise id probably be more creeped out. But anywhoo yesterday was pretty great. It was just one of those busy busy days. I had autumn I took her to school, then my brother to class (cause his car is is in the shot), Then run some errands, pick autumn up from school. By the end of the day I was so wiped out. It was also one of those days where everyone seems extra nice to you. I got a lot of compliments yesterday on my outfit and how fabulous my hair was. I was scoring good deals. And on top of that there were a lot of cute guys out yesterday or maybe I was more aware of them. I snapped a few photos through out my day.

today

Some morning music to get ready to. I forgot all about the xx and then fell in love all over again.

today
I felt very colorful yesterday.

I love the drive to Autumn's school. It's so pretty boring oregon is anything but boring. Yes it's all country and farms. But I love that it's so pretty. I wish my mom and step dad would buy a house out there.

today
Yum right? I was a little disappointed that I didn't taste strawberries or champagne just chocolate which isn't bad I mean its chocolate. After this I had my teeth cleaning I felt bad I didn't have time to brush my teeth before (Yes I am one of those who brush their teeth before a dentist appointment).


Now on to my scores of the day yesterday.
today
So I was looking through linens and I spotted the shabby chic logo from a mile away walked over fast but not to obvious. I couldn't believe it someone donated a brand new never been opened shabby chic quilt. who does that? But thank you.
Originally $99.99 I paid $19.99 I love those 50% off color days.

Ok but this one takes the cake. I went into Nordstrom rack in search of a warm coat but wondered off into shoes and I saw a shoe with a bow which of course I had to try on turns out it was the Jeffrey Campbell situation pump. Which goes for $108 What did I pay you ask $29.99 Yep that's right you heard me. They are so pretty on I can't wait to wear them. I may or may have not worn them to do laundry.
today


After all that deal scoring I came home to a nice bubble bath and wine.

today
This wine only comes out once a year around October and once it's gone it's gone until the next year. It's super yummy if you like wine you should try it and tell me what you think.

Also I've been a little bit obsessed with my pineapple,mango, spinach smoothies in the morning. I thought id be grossed out with spinach in a smoothie but you can't taste at all and your getting you veggies in so win right?

today


I think I am going to try a pumpkin smoothie tomorrow. Yum I hope. Enjoy your day.

A little DIY never hurt anyone.

I love a good DIY project and with this being my first Halloween in my little house I wanted to do some decorating. The other day I was reading a yummy pumpkin cake recipe on Shutterbean's blog And saw her black mason jars she spray painted black. So the next day I had a day off I got myself some spray paint and got some use out of my millions of mason jars. And made a halloween vase and thought some orange roses would go perfect in them. I wish that black roses actually existed I have made them for my birthday one year.
halloweendiy

You'll need a mason jar (or any vase you would like and don't mind spray painting.)
Black spray paint
Flowers of your choosing.

That's it
halloweendiy
Step one: Lay down some newspaper so you don't get paint all over the place.
Step two: Spray one coat on one side. Let dry for about 20 mins or so then spray another layer on the other side.
halloweendiy
Step three: Let dry for a few hours. I like to be safe with flowers going inside it and all.

Now you have a pretty halloween vase.
