yesterday was the most wonderful day. i spent the day shopping with my mom.
for those of you who don't know, my mom is a painter. last year she quit her job as an art teacher to pursue her painting career full time. i am so proud of her. she is doing her first solo show soon! i am so excited! Congratulations, Mom!
I want to start sharing more places from my hometown since blog readers are coming to visit the new shop! First up... My favorite thrift shop, Thrift Haven (located on S. Glenstone). This is a charity based thrift shop (all proceeds support a children's home!). I shop here about once a week and find lots of cute dresses & vintage items to paint. They play gospel music %100 of the time and all of the people who work there are volunteers. I love it so much that if it ever goes out of business, I'm moving.
i love this hunt!
both my grandma's had killer cute style and it thrills me to wear the trends that they used to love.
Oh, and this is what I took home with me from this shopping trip:
this lovelyyy spring blanket. i think it was $3. score!
oh, and right next door to Thrift Haven is the Oriental Market. It's cute and very colorful. My foster sister lovies the cute candy they have....
well, I have a new box of chamomile tea & a deadline to work on this evening.
Happy Sunday! Elsie
