I finally opened an Etsy shop.  Lately I have been thrifting around the Twin Cities.  And, let me just say, if you're ever in the area, I highly recommend you shopping.  I have gotten so much stuff!  So, much, that I pretty much had to open a shop because I have started hoarding housewares and furniture.  The husband is not too happy about it.  Haha, I don't blame him, though.  I see something vintage and I HAVE to buy it.  I feel like the Sarah Mclachlan of the vintage world!  And for that reason I called my shop "Adopt Vintage."  So if you want to check it out, here's the link!

I have not finish listing everything, so check back when you can!  I will have over 30 pieces!  Lots to choose from! Thanks so much!

Wow.  It has been a long time since I have written anything.  A lot of stuff has happened in the past couple of months.  A lot of stuff I can't believe.  Something had to change and it did.  Me as well as everyone involved are better off for it.  We have all turned around with an attitude that is a complete 180 compared to before!  Its really refreshing and feels good to start a new chapter.

As for the things that have been going on lately...  I'm going to be working soon (also will start school in mid January...  ugh).  SCARY!  I haven't worked since I was pregnant with my first daughter.  Over 4 years ago.  I start working security with the airport in a couple of weeks and have an interview with Goodwill as a donation processor tomorrow (first dibs on all the stuff that comes in!).  I am really excited about the Goodwill job.  I have been going to at least one thrift store a day for the past couple of weeks and have found SSSOOO much stuff.  I will hopefully get around to photographing it soon.  To give you a little hint, I have started to hoard Pyrex.  

Hope things have been going great for everyone!  Looking forward to keeping up with all the blogs I used to read!

Panther Tattoo

panther and dagger tattoo by nathan hatfield

This is my new tattoo by my friend who is doing an apprenticeship at Blue Flame Tattoo in Raleigh, NC.  He did an amazing job!  Its right inside my right bicep and near my armpit.  Whew!  That was tender!  You might be wondering why I chose this tattoo as its a little random, but I had seen drawings he had done practicing, and I loved his panthers!  Him and his girlfriend are pretty much my best friends in the entire world, so I figured I get something that reminds me of them, too (there's a picture of something similar hanging in their house).  Plus, a panther with a dagger through it?!  Awesome!  His name is Nathan Hatfield, so look out for his name in the future in tattoo magazines!  He's going places!

Now and Lately Pt. 2

Whoa, its been awhile since I have posted and Blogger changes everything!  This is going to take some getting used to.  I had a batch of pictures I posted awhile ago, and figured I'd do it again.  I haven't had much time to get a post together because my youngest, who is now 7 1/2 months, has been an absolute handful.  But here are a couple of more pictures from what has gone on since the last time I posted.   trip
Got my hair cut

My little girl is getting bigger

I love these tiny little feet

Stayed with my sister and her crazy boxers

Had a playdate with an old friend

Gave myself a new tattoo!

I got a real tattoo recently that I need to post.  Hopefully I'll get to posting regularly again soon.  I miss it.  Isn't that weird?  Hope everyone's spring is going well!  We've been having off and on awesome weather here in Minnesota.  Come on, spring!

Now and Lately Pt. 1

It has been a pretty looong time since I have posted anything.  I have been relaxing, visiting, and taking time for me for the last couple of weeks.  It has been amazing!  I really don't want it to end, but I know I have to go home.  Let's just hope it feels like spring by the time I get back to Minnesota.  Here's a couple of pictures of what's been going on. 

Just so you know, that little bundle of green above is fourteen 4-leaf clovers.  I don't know how, but I'm awesome at finding them!  Wish it would bring me all the luck it should!  But I guess I'm ruining the luck because I'm looking out for them.  
Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive!  I'm soaking up as much down time as I can, because once I get back home its going to be time to move nonstop again!

Vintage Fabric

As I am getting really close to finishing my first piece of clothing I have sewn myself I have been looking around for fabric and dreaming up what I want to sew next.  Its really crazy how easy it is to do when you follow the patterns and directions!  My first piece was a button up shirt, which I will post about when I am through and its photographed, but now I am thinking with all this nice weather and summer around the corner I need to start looking at fabric for a dress.  I just scored some really awesome fabrics from Bingo Vintage and that started my quest to find more pretty vintage fabrics!  Here's a couple I have favorited on Etsy.
vintage 60s fabric blue flowers
vintage red and white fabric
vintage mid century fabric
vintage atomic fabric
vintage 40s fabric flowers
vintage blue atomic starburst fabric
I am so in love with the last print!  Red, black, and blue starburst???  Love it...  I actually think I am going to buy it right now.  I can't pass it up.  

aaannnnnnnnndddddddddd...  done.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!  Its in the 70s in Minnesota and I cannot believe it!  And only one more week until I make the 23 hour drive back home to North Carolina!

Stop Kony 2012

I don't like posting about my political, religious, or social beliefs on my blog.  I like keeping it a positive and argument free place.  I saw this video on Facebook and it is too powerful not to share.  It doesn't matter what you believe in, you will be affected by this video.

Share this video with everyone you know. Pass it on.  Make a difference.
