Let’s just pretend it hasn’t been almost a month since I posted okay? OK!
I’ve been working on a re-design of this space and my personal identity in general, and the ah-ha! moment has yet to happen. Frankly that has left me feeling less than inspired to post. Although, I DID re-design My Portfolio site— I always have an easier time with that than the blog. Anyone else have that problem?
I’m going to try the opposite approach now of pushing through and creating content instead of waiting for the design lightbulb to turn on!
I don’t think i’ve mentioned this but I have been unemployed of a normal full time job since the end of February. Since then, I’ve been luckily up to my eyeballs in freelance work, traveling, playing in roller derby games almost every weekend, and last but not least..thrifting during the day!
One of my favorite shops is a bike ride-able distance from where I live, and is only open early during the day from Tuesdays-Saturday. (I just realized they’re open Saturdays mornings instead of just during the week like I thought!) Now that i’ve been around during the day I get overly excited for ample thrifting time.
I tweeted about the fact that I broke my rule about not buying anymore house ware stuff until I moved–Oops. I just couldn’t say no to a Powerpuff girls plate and vintage mushrooms :)
Here’s the haul I got from the Bellport Methodist Thrift Shop and the local Savers to kick off May. (Long Island, NY)
I will forever love the Powerpuff girls. Buttercup for the win! Sweater shirt is from Forever21.
Okay this is REALLY cool. Vintage mushroom patterned adhesive backing– daydreaming about putting this on top of some stools. Or ya know, everything.
Coffee tin was kind of a splurge since it didn’t come in a set. Awesome set of ceramic mugs from the 60s.
