{27 Dresses} Dress 2: It’s Still My Birthday


I know, I know, but let me tell you about this amazing place called Burger Jones! Oh wait, you already knew?!? I sure hope so!
Well let me start by showing off my new living room furniture! It took Sam and I a pretty long time to find the pieces we knew we absolutely loved. And we looked almost everywhere there was to look in the Twin Cities. But you know what it all came down to? Macy’s furniture store in Edina!


My mother-in-law came over and we went to Sur la Table at 50th and France, and got the rest of the beautiful silverware set that my in-laws have me for my Birthday!


We also got some frozen yogurts at the Yogurt Lab, and the Chili Chocolate is to die for! So is salted carmel ๐Ÿ™‚ YUM

Now we are getting to Burger Jones ๐Ÿ˜‰ After one “Big Sloppy Kiss”


And this specialty pesto burger


Surprisingly enough I had room for dessert! Which was on the house!


If you are wondering about the dress ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like it, but it has this really awkward length, and the pleats don’t go all the way down, so it looks a bit off if you take a closer look!


And here you have it! A second day of my 27 dress project! Don’t forget to enter my Shabby Apple giveaway!
Happy Tuesday,

I hope you all had a great weekend wherever you are! I shared with my Facebook followers that I have some very exciting news for you! And I will share the first one today! I was invited to the Opening of the new Savers here in the Twin Cities, and I couldn’t be more excited! I get to go in the store 2 days before it actually opens to the public, snap some pictures for you and of course thrift shop! Now I will be shopping for another special even, that I am going to keep SECRET for just a few more days, but it’s even more exciting and I can barely hold it ๐Ÿ™‚

My Vintage Collection – Part 3 – Jewelry and Purses

This is the last post about my vintage collection. Today I’ll show you some jewelry and purses that I acquired, hope you enjoy them!

1. Brooches and Pins. These are all vintage. The one on the bottom right is

missing a stone, I just need to buy one, and glue it in! The one on the top right is a pin I usually wear on my hand-made Italian coat that I got at a garage sale in Murray Hill for $1. The apple pin was a perfect find for me, because I work as a teacher. I wonder when my Grandma got them all?

2. Earrings and Pins. All earrings are gold, which of course makes them even more special.

Now I’m not so certain gem-wise, I need to go get them appraised. Pay attention to the pin on the top right – I love the green of the flower (as one of my fellow vintage lovers noticed – I love florals, and flowers, and basically everything that has to do with them!)

3. Bracelet. I know that this bracelet is definitely from the 80’s, it used to belong to my mom.







4. Purses.












5. Uncategorized

A vintage shirt that makes you want to sing “I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike…”








A beige jacket.








A one size fits all kind of white top with a vintage necklace







And a “paper bag” skirt







Love and Lace Flowers,
