I never tire of showcasing the beautiful clothing that my grandmother saved in such great condition. This is another one of her amazing coats. I believe it is from the 1960's (which I seem to be particularly enamored with as of late). It has a lovely one button closure with large cuffs on the sleeves. Not to mention the nubby material and in such a perfect shade of sage! I wore this for church and to hang out with my family last Sunday when I was home. Tomorrow it's off to Sean's hometown. I need to get packing for the five day weekend! Sometimes, I am so thankful I am on a teacher's schedule.
This bag is that amazing vintage find I raved about in my last post. I saw it buried under stacks of mediocre, cheap purses placed on a high shelf. I pulled it out, looked at my mom (whom I was thrifting with) and just gasped. It has got to be the oldest, most well made item I have found at a thrift store. It is all leather with such a beautiful design. The lock is especially unique- you turn the charm on the front one way to lock it, and then flip it around to unlock it! I thought it was so neat. It is pretty small, so it will be one of those 'special occasion' purses, but so worth it in my eyes. I'm interested to know what era it is from. If you think you have an idea please let me know! I would love to find out some history behind this baby.

This was one of my favorite things to wear. Of all time. I found this little vintage dress at my favorite thrift spot a couple of weeks ago and have already come up with about a zillion ways I want to wear it. I can't wait to wear it as a blouse, a skirt, and just by itself as a cute little summer dress too. What a find! I loved the collar, the stripes, the faux buttons down the front and the tent shape. It makes it super versatile.
Have a very blessed week all :) Be sure to smile a lot, ok?
But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life.
