last week my boss and i went prop shopping. we were on a mission to find a few new/old props for her photography studio. things that would look great in photos. do you have occasional shops where you live? if not, i'd highly recommend you consider a move to mpls mn -asap!!! : ) these sales are popping up everywhere, in many of the darling little towns around here. there's never just one either. they make it all about "destination shopping". mama likey! they say one man's junk is another man's treasure and whoever said that was one smart fella. these shops are open only one weekend a month. that gives the owners another 27 days to go find a whole bunch of fabulousness, clean it all up, and arrange it in such a cute manner that chicks like me CAN NOT RESIST A FEW ITEMS! (they sell it all cheapo too-what a great perk)!
don't get me wrong-i love to buy new things. new things are clean, attractive and....well new----but, what they are often lacking in my opinion is c-h-a-r-a-c-t-e-r. they have no history, no patina, no reputation. girlfriend likes a bit of a tarnished reputation, (as long as it's not my own). hahahahaha
annie found a few darling things for her studio and i found some fabulouso junk for our cabin (we're still two weeks from the closing-in case you're wondering). here's my loot~
* boy scouts of america * on it. (it made my heart flutter- the hubs was a proud boy scout in his day). wish we still had his old neck scarf-wouldn't that be a hoot?
it's the weekend-and what could be sweeter?
