we are having the most out of the ordinary, super snow-filled winter in central virginia. breaking records for most days with snow on the ground and having to call in extra plows from nearby states. (at least, i overheard that... Continue reading

i am going to pretend that i'm somewhere sunny. with the sound of sea birds in the air. where i can go for leisurely walks in my salt water sandals. and let the ocean breeze move across my slightly sunburned... Continue reading

alex- i was going to say the same thing. i love how diplomatic matty was with his little offering. and yes, the fact that he didn't recognize any of those famous faces. HA! that's my feller!

time for me to cut my shaggy head of hair. so the question is: go short with a cute bob? definitely a more polished look- probably more maintenance than i think? my hair isn't naturally straight, after all. but short... Continue reading

fork union! how funny! glad you found me. so basically- i hit up tons of spots in the charlottesville/harrisonburg/ruckersville/waynesboro/staunton/stuarts draft vicinity. i don't know if i have any real secret spots- mostly i just go A WHOLE LOT. about 5 days a week... that's probably why i have such good luck? charlottesville has a couple goodwills that are ok- i actually think they are a little bit on the overpicked side and messy. but that doesn't mean i haven't found some gems! of course there are loads of non-thrift but more vintage shop places too... if you just WANT something great and don't have the time + energy to put into the hunt... antics which is downtown, and gladrags would be two places that i'd highly recommend for a SURE SPOT to find something super cute- gladrags is all clothing + Accessories, antics has LOADS of clothing but also tons and tons of housewares... happy thrifting!

isn't that funny! i love how it just sort of *happens* that way... i never go looking for anything in a specific color family, that's for sure... there are certain items that i collect that i'm always on the hunt for- but not just cause they're pink or red or green! i like the way everything looks though, when it's all in a similar color story. like it's meant to be together or something!! and yes, the little owl is a bank!
