A little bit of history.

You know what I love about...well, everthing? It's story. Everything has a story a compliment can bring out. When you walking down the stree and somebody compliments your dress and you tell them everthing. Maybe you bought it at your favorite thrift store, or it was on sale for a few dollars at a store that is usually too expensive for you. You tell them how you wore it to your first school dance, or maybe to a dinner party with your friends. But no matter what it is, it all has history. I love this shirt though its always confused me. Why have a thick short sleeved shirt? Thats like mixing two seasons. Too hot for the summer, too cool for winter. I can't remember where I got this, but I suspect it was a hand-me down. I used to wear it a lot more.

Ew my camera did a funky little yellow thing. When my Aunt Kim went to french lick on vacation with her family she bought me this pretty little butterfly. I remember it came in a tiny green box that I gave to my little sister. She cut a hole in it and stuck her finger up in it. Then she used some fake blood, trying to make it look like a finger was just cut off and placed in the box. The first time I wore this butterfly was around easter, when I went to my cousins house.
When my Mom was in the airforce she found this charming clock pin that is hard to photograph. She was stationed over seas when she bought it. I stumbled apon it when I was raiding her jewelry box, which is really just the top shelf of her dresser, filled with tiny treasures.

The day I found this pin I was searching through my Grandma's attic, ready to find some vintage wonders. I remember that when I went up I grabed a weapon, its always scary up there a lone. I think my Aunt B. was in town then-shes actually in twon now, were gonna go thrifting a couple of hours.

There used to be another little angel to this set. It was a birthday present from people who used to be our familys close family friend. We used to see eachother all the time, I don't even know where they are know.
I found this at one of my favorite consignment shops and the lady said I had good taste.
Anyway, see what I mean? Everything has at least one little thing you could say about it, if not more.
Also the winner of the hair clips is Miss Caitlin S. Thank you to everyone who entered my very first giveaway!


  1. oh that little had with the spoon pin is just gorgeous!

  2. It's so true, a closet contain many stories of how certain things were acquired or worn. I saw a play call "Love, Loss and What I Wore" off broadway a few months ago and ever since then, I've thought about my clothes in a slightly different light.
