I have driven on bits of Route 66. I even visited the Blue Whale of Catoosa while working in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but I have yet to do a proper road trip along the historic highway. Someday. That does not stop me from sporting this Route 66 print skirt. It is an easy-going, quirky and comfortable little ... Read more

A few weeks ago I found myself thrifting without a bag… I detest those flimsy plastic shopping bags that stores insist you take. When it comes down to it, I really dislike all single use shopping bags, no matter what they are made of. For the past five years I have been bringing my own ... Read more

I picked up these granny shorts at Goodwill some time ago. I am not really sure why they landed in my shopping cart, other than they fit my waist really well and I am a sucker for plaid. I am not crazy about the pleats or the length.  There is not much I can do ... Read more

Miss Sally Stitch has seen better days.  I think she spent many a day in a barn before landing on my doorstep.  Literally, she just showed up one day.  A gift from a relative. Curious about her age I did an internet search, but the only thing I could come up with is that Sally ... Read more

I picked up this vintage metal tin at a thrift store a few months ago.  Isn’t it the sweetest? I’m loving the stylish lady on the lid.  I need a hat like that.  Her dapper beau is equally put together.  They’re a lovely pair.  It makes me want to strap on a pair of skates ... Read more

arlier this summer I took a road trip to Oronoco, Minnesota for their annual Gold Rush Days.  Oronoco is like the mother of all antique fair/flea markets around here.  Other than Warrens, Wisconsin’s Cranfest coming up this weekend, but that’s more craft crap.  I’m more into regular crap, er, junk, I mean thrifted treasure. Oronoco ... Read more
