Top Five Friday

Let me just say that this week has been just lovely! C had a friend in town from Portland and she was one of the best house guests we've ever had. I am sad to see her go, but excited to visit her in Portland! I also went to a great vintage sale this week and saw two friends that I hadn't seen because I am in full-on hibernation mode. Tonight, C and I are having a date night and going to see a movie and go out for dinner. :) I can't wait to get home...

My Top Five Friday is basically my wish list for January. I know it's not Christmas or my birthday, and my bank account in no way can handle or support my vintage addiction, but a girl can dream can't she?

Still have not found a wedding dress, but this one from Bridal Bliss Designs is close to perfection. I am going vintage wedding dress shopping (for the first time!) with one of my girlfriends Saturday - wish me luck!

I just love this poncho from Manhattan Hippie - it's bright and cheery and it is like a sweater and a blanket all in one!

I mean, these shorts from Ginger Root Vintage! Come on...These might have to be mine.

And these pug pillows! Gah! I actually met the owner of this shop at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago and snatched one up! They are really adorable!

Have a great weekend, dearies!




  1. Ooh I hope you find a dress! It would be so exciting! Enjoy your date night at the movies - what are you going to see? I hope to maybe see a movie this weekend too, we will see!

  2. That dress is gorgeous. I cannot wait to see what you end up with for your wedding. Good luck shopping on Saturday.
