San Tropez, anyone?

My finds at the thrift store yesterday had me wanting to pack my lovely new bag, throw on some big cateye  shades, tie my silk scarf around my head and head for some sunny foreign port, like San Tropez.  I must have the slushy, middle-of-winter doldrums.

My lovely leather suitcase below and silk scarf, which I believe I will put on Etsy...my vacation plans will have to wait. *sigh*
A closer look at the scarf.
And a very cool looking paper cut design by a Polish designer called Sztuka Lowicka... I think.  All the pages I find my computer will not translate due to an error.  Grrr.  It's beautifully coloured and very slightly damaged, so it will likely find a home on my wall.
Happy thrifting!

Really Late Thrift Share!

Oops, so perhaps the best way to drum up business and gain some followers on a new website is not to take a couple of months off...point taken!

I found some great scarves and boots and things over the last couple of months, and most are in my Etsy shop now.  So, I will stick to what I just found this week and have just spent the morning putting in my shop.  Takes awhile, eh?!  And I only put in 4 or 5 items.

So here we go.

Two silk Vera scarves.  I've found these are pretty popular and sell well.  I love her designs, just don't wear alot of scarves.

Some vintage Pyrex called Crazy Quilt.  Very cute and mod.  I'm really trying to remove things from my house and not add more, so into the shop it goes!
And last but not least, my beloved box of notecards that I've had in my desk for years.  I really do love them, but, you know, I procrastinate returning emails sometimes.  Paper notes just aren't in my future ;)
Keep on thrifting!  And updating your blogs!!
