Last week Grady and I accidentally* went to the thrift store, and had a pretty successful time. I’m in love with the colors of this print. There were two more similar to it — different bouquets in red and yellow — but they were $5 each which is a little too steep for me. This will go on the purple wall as soon as I find my stud-finder.
I also found these incredible flats, which I am mostly too afraid to wear. They are white lace in pristine condition, even though they’re vintage. I’m notoriously mean to my shoes, so the one time I wore these I had to be extra careful. I guess
if when I ruin them I can just dye them another color.
I love this adorable dress I found for Grady. It won’t fit her until she’s at least four, but I had to get it because she looks so great in green.
But my favorite finds of the day were books. This is the one book I chose for Grady; it’s an addition to our Great Illustrated Classics collection. But what I love most about it are the ridiculous doodles. Yes, that hangman game does say “boys are really hot.” And yes, on the other side it says “I hate dylan but I still (heart) him.” And I totally used to make lists of my friends like that.
Grady picked most of her own books for the first time, and let me just say: She has awesome taste. She picked about ten gorgeous new and vintage picture books with amazing illustrations. This one is my favorite.
*No, really, it was an accident. I fully intended to go to the craft store to get a couple supplies for the shop, but the thrift store is just right next to the craft store and I guess I got a little confused by the heat. I only realized I was in the wrong place once I’d put Grady in the cart, so I might as well peruse a little.
The final Shoe Week giveaway on Sometimes Sweet is a pick-your-own! I’m getting kind of desperate in my need for these:
