Isn't this the most perfect brooch ever?? It was my first yard-sale find on Saturday. Of course, I took out the pictures of other peoples' children, and plan on replacing them with pictures of Chris and I as children. I wore this thing all weekend.
Oh, and it was only $2 *grin*
I bought this weird make-believe animal fabric (tons of it...probably about 5 or 6 yards), plus the pretty flower stuff and other bits of lace and trim from a really nice lady who does seamstress work at home and also at a bridal shop in State College. She was so sweet, and offered her service whenever I need help or have a question about sewing. She also has a website, So Much Sewing. Check it out here.
I spied this little guy peeking out from behind a bunch of junk, high on the top shelf. He's really a napkin holder, but I don't need one of those, so he's helping me keep my mail organized on my desk for now.
Oh, and this may be my other New Favorite Thing!! Its handmade, and signed on the bottom. I am just in love with it. Its just a catch-all, I suppose. But look at the sweet little ladybug, and the beautiful yellow roses! Oh, I'm in love.
Oooh, and my new shoes! I've been searching high and low for a cute, comfortable pair of Mary Janes. At long last, I have found some! Simple, but stylish. And comfortable! And only $3 (and brand new) at the Goodwill. Oh, yes. And, my other new shoes! Hooray for new shoes! I think these are just fabulous. They're about a half-size too big, but I don't care. I got these at Plato's Closet, a consignment shop just up the street from Chris' apartment.
My favorite part of the Chinese buffet?
