52 Weeks of Instax: Wk2

Dom and I went to this strange store in our mall. It was like on giant garage sale! I had to talk him out of buying a puzzle, haha.

This picture seems to have a finger print on it, sorry! We went to a local coffee shop and got Butter Beer! Sooo tasty! I always laugh at Dom after I get the picture because he can never keep his eyes open for a flash!

Our day of relaxation consisted of mugs of ice cream (Pictured below), tons of spaghetti, and stumble upon!

52 Weeks of Instax: Wk1

I thought 52 Weeks of Instax was the cutest idea for a post, so I jumped aboard the wagon!

I recently won a giveaway from Andrea, of Paper Sparrow! I won the Caturday Print, from Amy of A is for Ampersand! I am absolutely in love with it. The day it came in the mail, I ran upstairs, put it in a frame, and hung it on my wall next to my camera collection and knickknacks. Thanks again Amy!

Secondhand Scores (4)

Yesterday I went to a few rummage sales and scored some more things I do not necessarily need.

I loved these brass keys from the moment I saw them. They were priced at $2 a piece, but I managed to haggle them down to $3 for both. These will look so lovely on my growing wall collection! I can't wait to hang them up!

 I have been on the hunt for a sun tea jar for my sister. This one was too cool to pass up, and for only $2!
Sorry Gwen, but I am keeping this one! 

 I think I have a slight obsession over mugs. Especially ones with cats on them. I could not resist this pair at 25 cents a piece! I love how on the one the tail goes up onto the handle.

Book Review: The Complete Family Sewing Book

Recently, I rediscovered this book that my step mom had bought for me from a secondhand store. From the looks of the cover, it is an amazing book, but let me tell you, the inside gets even better! (P.S try not to notice the fly-away hair I have going on, thanks.)
The Complete Family Sewing Book was written by Cathi Hunt and was published in 1971. It is basically full of everything you need to know about style (Back then) and sewing! Now, without further ado, here is a sneak peek for everyone!

I want to make all of these dresses!

What's not to love about a girl with a spool of thread as a body and a thimble as a hat?

Look at this suave gentleman. I love a man with a mustache.

I would wear this adorable children's dress myself! I love the peter pan collar!

I love this lady, she has a papasan chair like me! And her kitty is helping, except not really.
