Happy Monday, folks! Make sure to check out the shop for some new items that were added this weekend. How was your weekend? :)

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I took a trip to New Hope, PA. It's a fun little town with lots of shops and restaurants. If you live nearby and have never been to New Hope, I suggest you check it out as soon as possible.

A view of the Delaware from the bridge.



An ice cream shop with a "Don't Tread on Me" flag. Awesome.



Here I am--walking across the bridge, feasting on ice cream, wearing a new vintage shirt that I had to buy from Love Saves the Day because I was SO HOT in my original shirt. What a dope. Also, what a sticky mess.



We bought hot sauces from a specialty store, then went home and cooked up some wings. We stuffed our faces and washed it down with some cool Red Stripe. Great day.

133. promotion/sale and update 8/27!

Image
I'm running a new promotion at my shop. I need to clear out some inventory because (since I still live in my parents' house) I'm running out of space! :O

I really don't want all that great vintage sitting in boxes under my bed anymore. It needs to breathe and feel the sun and be loved by it's new owner! So from now until an undetermined date--Buy two items, get a third (least expensive) item free PLUS free shipping! Refund via Pay Pal. Convo me for more details.

Vintage DAY AT THE RACE…

132. the cutest thing you will see today, maybe all week.

Sorry for another adorable video post, but--actually I'm not sorry. This video ("Marcel the Shell") is so freakin' cute I could just die. Jenny Slate--be my best friend!

131. "Baby stuck behinde couch!"

This kid is so cute, I could eat him up. I can't wait to have kids and make videos of them doing ridiculous things. I probably should never be a parent.

As I mentioned in my last post, I took off from work yesterday to go adventuring with my boyfriend. He just got a job in Riegelsville, Pennsylvania (right across the NJ border), so we took a drive to check out the area. The day started out with some Dunkin coffee and sunny skies. We stopped at a post office to ship out some items from my shop, then found a cool area by the river to take some shots.







I'm wearing a the Vintage CLUELESS Floral Grunge Dress from my shop, leather shoes that I got brand new at a yard sale earlier this summer, a purse that I got at a yard sale last summer, some old shades I found in my closet, and the TINY CUBE necklace from Jean Jean Vintage.















After exploring the riverside, we drove to Bethlehem, PA to drop some clothes off at The Attic and eat lunch at Brew Works. We shared the beer sampler, which included Biere De Pharaoh:
Biere De Pharaoh has an amazing 13.8% A.B.V.! The strongest beer ever at the Brew Works. Biere de Pharaoh is only available at the Be…

129. vintage disney posters.

I decided to call out of work tomorrow and go on an excursion with my boyfriend. That means today is an extra-lazy Sunday filled with coffee, Etsy shop-updating, and watching "Mary Poppins." While researching the movie on Wikipedia, I learned that the author (of the books which the film is based on) was a woman, Pamela Lyndon Travers, and she wasn't a big fan of how Disney adapted her story. I also found out that "Feed the Birds," which is my favorite song from the film (and one of the prettiest and most sad songs ever, in my opinion) happened to have been one of Walt Disney's favorite songs as well. Interesting stuff.

I also came across some vintage Disney movie posters, which are so much cooler than the art that was on the VHS boxes when I was a kid.

128. today's soundtrack.

I recently got the Droid 2 and I am obsessed with it. I downloaded the Pandora app, and now all I do at work is stream and create amazing stations. Today's playlist is based on "The Girl from Ipanema" by the lovely Ms. Astrud Gilberto.


How fly is she?

Also, remember that my Etsy-versary sale ends tomorrow! Buy one, get one half off all items in my shop. Just mention "SIXMONTHS" in the note to seller, and you'll be refunded via Pay Pal.
