Okay, forget about all the stuff I curated for the Ethical Summer Wishlist post. THIS is the hottest item of the season: a pink visor that rolls up to be travel friendly. I found this @oschapeleirosdelx in Lisbon, made by the family that runs it. Apparently is it 100% paper, and it velcroes on in the back. I've been wearing it on sunny days, and friends are only making fun of me a little bit! 😂 #menocore
Speaking of shopping local, I'm almost done compiling a list of Canadian brands and retailers we Canucks can buy online to avoid crazy duty fees. Anybody have more recommendations for Canadian jewelry, activewear, swim/lingerie, and shoe brands? I'm light in those categories.
I received happy mail today from the beautiful @cabenfever 😊 In with my goodies was this absolutely stunning candle. I was going to put it away and wait till the Christmas holidays, but I couldn't resist. I love it! It reminds me of my childhood. 😊✨🌈🌸💜 #retrohome#retro#vintage#vintagehome#grannychic
one project down, on to the next one! this blanket is big enough for one person but could easily squeeze two, it's not as big as I would have liked it to be, but it did use up a lot of yarn, so I'm not complaining too much 😊 #crochet#colorful#grannychic#blanket
Today I’m grateful for finding the most awesomest vintage shirt ever and this sweet not-actually-vintage-but-sort-of-looks-it belt. The previous owner of this Sears Western Wear embroidered chambray shirt clearly loved it as much as I do. It’s so perfectly worn and broken in - making it that much more special. I picture someone like my husband’s 95 year old Grandma, a hard working, simple, frugal, contented farmer’s wife wearing this shirt day in and day out, year after year while she picks strawberries and asparagus in the little front-yard garden. And y’all - there’s mushrooms and a little family of turtles embroidered on the back. And, I paid 75 cents for both of them! 💕🐢🍄 #everydaygratitude
My aesthetic is eclectic economy 😂. Everything pictured is inherited, the table, the quilt, the clock...and I love them all. I'm finally pulling rooms together after nearly 2 years in this house. My library is almost done, a rug and coffee table are arriving next week. My family room gets painted finally in the next 2 weeks...the paint samples have only been on the walls for a year now, whatevs. It will still be a work in progress until I can afford some new furniture. 🤷♀️. My actual aesthetic is what I call modern gothic Victorian. Plus a little pop culture reference thrown in here and there. I'm decorating this house using no ones expeditions but my own, and it's fun. 😊. What's your aesthetic?? .
@nils.reviewsit tagged me to #spellyournamewithbooks . So a bookstack finally! Tagging some others to join in.. if ya want. This also works for today's #grimdragon prompt, I haven't read half of these. #sorrynotsorry
Summer time pink 💕 Picked up these pink roses @michaelsstores. They are moving all the summer stuff out & making room for pumpkins 😳 Seems pumpkins & Christmas trees creep in earlier and earlier every year!!!! But for now, I'm enjoying the whole house summer time feel with flowers everywhere & since tomorrow is the official start to SUMMER it was perfect timing for a redo 😜 I think it's fun to keep all my favorite pieces out & change the look up by swapping out the greenery during the year !!! It's my way of being thrifty 😜 Happy halfway to Friday day ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~#vintagepinkhutch#1950spink#vintagechina#grannychic#shabbychic#thriftstorefinds#fleamarketstyle#junk#treasures#summertimepink
