Oh hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. 😀
Last week I was all, “I’m going to a rummage sale” and I did and I did SO WELL but I never showed you what I bought and I know that everyone is wondering.
So, I’ll show you.
Bam! Bam! Bam bam bam!
This is most of the stuff right hur. Starting on the left we have a little formal number I’ll talk about later. Then a jumper which I doubted but, before a week had passed I had already worn it twice. You’ll do, leetle pink hipster jumper made from a wool-blend.
I seriously used to have that same blue shirt, but I wore it out from love. And sweat. Let’s be real, right?
That maroon-and-orange striped shirt seemed cool enough, and then I saw the tag…”rubbish.” I had a “rubbish” sweater once that I LOVED and lost somewhere…and I’ve never forgotten it (’tis better to have loved and lost? anyone?) so I picked this up as well.
The vest I saw and fell solidly into “like.” I had a vest at home at the time, grey with cables. I never really liked it, never really looked good in it…but I loved the fact that it was grey and versatile. Layers, baby. So when I saw this one I decided it would be my new grey vest. Sure enough, that other one is being donated as we speak. Well, type. And read.
I also bought a pair of shoes and some yarn. The shoes have proved handy, even in their hot pinkness. The yarn is gorgeous. The price tag on one says it was an $8 skien…but that didn’t stop me from nabbing it for twenty-five cents! Looks like someone might be getting a lovely scarf this year…maybe even with a new and improved pattern since my mom is handy and knows all the patterns. To teach to me, of course!
And the belts. One I found, navy with a cool buckle that’s really a ring. The other has mice detailing. It buckles when they hold paw-hands! It looks like they’re cuddling!
This dress, again. So you could see that the tags are STILL ON IT. For TWO HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE DOLLAHS. Not 100% my style, but 100% the color of my eyes and 100% only SIXTEEN DOLLARS and the lady asked, “Do you have any formal events” and I replied, “I pretty much go to weddings all the time.”
What I’m saying is, if you want to get married, I have a new dress.
How much do you think I spent total on alla those goods? Well, it was 30% mark-up day at the sale (not kidding).
If you guess $7.22 you are too low. If you guessed $105 you are too high.
Somewhere between $40 and $50. I don’t remember exactamente.
So, that picture above reminded me of this throw-back picture:
And that reminded me of the saints and how I almost scored a second-class relic!
Not really, though. Since he’s not canonized…yet.
Other letters (thanks!)
And this one, from baby Julia! (Full-circle!)
Isn’t that lovely???
XOXOXOXOXOX, happy Wednesday.
You are the besssst and I love you all!
