Enid Collins Bags from my Mommy!

Does it count as a thrift-venture if you choose to treasure hunt at your Mom's house?
Well you see at my Mamas place.... "It Grows On Trees" .......vintage delectables* that is.

Her closets overflow with both Enid and Lucite bags.
Ah ....yes....I come by my collecting tendencies honestly.

"Driftwood" ...perfect for the Fall.... and quite an unusual Enid shoulder bag!

Hard to think of Fall with so many 100+ days strung together here.....(my poor lawn)....but school has finally begun and while my littlest was craving getting back on a schedule(she would never express it that way but her actions did!)my oldest opens Romeo and Juliet on Thursday and the late nights/early morns are already a bit of an issue.
Please think positive thoughts for us as we navigate our unusual and challenging schedule!
P.S. Ruby just called to let us know she got in AP Music Theory!!...not bad for a sophomore who has only been playing the piano for a few months!

* Did I just make that word up?
Delectables: (noun) A cross between a group of things that is both collectable and delectable.

Littlest Hipster Tee How To!!!

Hipster Little Sis Tee !
Easy-peasy instructions:
Obtain thrifted tee (make sure the fit is correct ..but long enough to fringe)
Begin to clip a small fringe as even or uneven all around the shirt as you wish!
Carefully tear your individual fringe strands up to the waist!
Repeat all the way around until the tee is completely fringed!
You could also add beads to the fringe...but our littlest hipster was a bit impatient to try it on!
This simple restyle has cycled from my midriff days all the way to my sweet girls.....yeesh!
