This is the time of year that I start to really miss my flea markets and yard sales... Yesterday, during my lunch hour, I found a few things at the thrift store ... ...A pretty German hand painted peacock plate... ($2.00)
...a crocheted tablecloth and eight white damask napkins... ($5 for both)
a pretty etched glass jar with a silver topped cork stopper... ($2.00)
...a sweet white vase....love the ruffle top... ($1.00)
Set of books from the 20's....great pictures...maps....etc. ($2.50 for set)
...and I don't have a great picture of the whole garment... ...but this is a closeup of a pullover Italian wool sweater coat with attached hood and scarf... It was $8... a bit funky with 3/4 length sleeves...it goes down to my knees and it fits! (one size fits all) I plan to wear it with boots and a black turtleneck... (Maybe I will have Talulah Rose model it for you...)
Not too bad! At least, not too bad for a January thrifting lunch hour! Wouldn't you say? :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
