Yesterday I ventured out of the cabin for the first time in days.
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I put on a cute outfit and headed to a salon in town for a haircut to perk me up.

And pretty much nothing makes this girl feel better than a little thrift shopping.

There are two charity thrift shops in town, both run by little old lady volunteers.  I love chatting with these precious ladies about the items I'm buying.  They ooooohhh and aaaahhh and say what a good deal I got.  I'm SO gonna be a great old lady.  I bought up some really cute and fun random things, and the combined total of all my thrifted items was less than the one round hairbrush I bought at the salon!  

Here's what came home with me:

  • An ankle-length winter coat, nice lean lines, dark gray nubby fabric, black collar, interestingly made in the Ukraine so I'm thinking this is a good sign it will be warm!
  • Two stocking caps that were exactly one buck each.  One is a periwinkle The North Face (!) cap with cute pompom on top, the other hand knit of 100 percent silk yarn using a combination of all my favorite colors
  • And did you notice the hand knit ivory scarf hoodie thingy that Pompeii is wearing in the above photo?  Yep, scored that too.
  • Two more soft warm scarves, one in my most favorite color magenta and the other turquoise
  • A gold (slightly, tastefully sparkly) baby-doll style thin sweater to wear to my holiday events with a chunky statement necklace
  • And this vintage cup and saucer...

Definitely on the road to recovery over here...


  1. wOW.. that was some good thrifting! Your hair looks super cute. I am always amazed at how much better I feel when I get my hair cut. I am so bad about letting it get to what I call my mountain woman look. I think I just hate spending so much money on myself. But wow do I feel better when I do! Hope you continue to feel better.

  2. Thanks Jenny! When we were little and being naughty, my Dad used to say we needed a haircut. He swore that made us wild! I think he was on to something there...
