This little gem was found at my all time favorite vintage shop EVER, Miss Ruth’s Time Bomb in Carlisle, PA. If you live in the area, hit it up. I have found some awesome pieces here. This belt was $6. From the geometric shape of it, it looks to be from the eighties.

White leather ankle boots. Slouchy and cute. I found this at my nearest Goodwill. They were $6.95, which admittedly is a little expensive for thrifting, but I find good shoes so rarely, I just had to.

Wild West velvet waistcoat. I can’t say no to velvet vests or jackets. $3.95 at Goodwill.

Long-sleeve button-up blouse with black cording detail. It is repeated on the cuffs as well. It’s a little Grandma-ish but I like that. I am still questing for the perfect white button-up blouse, and this one is pretty awesome, but I am looking for one that’s silkier and has pockets. The quest continues! $3 at the animal shelter thrift store.

This bag is what thrifting dreams are made of. It’s a 50s/60s era snap-closure handbag. Just awesome. The outside is like those heavy velvety curtains your Grandma had. $4, local thrift store.

My Halloween Christmas Tree

I just got my laptop back from being repaired after being broken for ever two weeks, which is a long time to be cut off from the internet and thus the world, in my case. Anyhow, here’s my little Christmas tree. It’s Halloween themed, just like I have always wanted. (The boyfriend actually approves– and he’s pretty grinchy.) This is our first year doing it, so the ornaments are kinda skimpy, but we plan to buy more next Halloween.

Some of the ornaments were recycled halloween bric-a-brac, a few were thrifted, and the lights and other ornarments were collected over the past few months on sale at The Christmas Tree Shoppe and KMart.

Enjoy your holiday, everyone!

P.S. You’ll be pleased to know that our two cats have been knocking it down and stealing the ornaments non-stop. Ugh.
