It was a fun day of shopping in my "home county" of Tuolumne on Tuesday. I came up with some fun and lovely stuff. Vintage patterns, all cute! And one is a western shirt with fun cuffs!
Vintage Sewing box in a most covetable color.
Hmmm, not usually a label girl, but I am able to make exceptions...
And a cookbook that was likely bought for the red cover with black dots...
Because it sure wasn't for the delicious looking color plates that dwelled within.
It was very theraputic to make a fun thrift haul because my last retail therapy was buying a great new pair of jeans. I got lucky and found a pair that fit, were flattering, had those cute pocket flaps, and were relatively cheap. I got them up near my sister's house which is an hour and a half away. I left them in my car, and left my car unlocked in front of my house... and somebody stole them! So frustrating! Did the thief know they were getting a one in a million purchase? Could they possibly understand what a good pair of jeans can mean to a woman of 40 who just put back on all the weight she lost last spring? I knew better than to leave the car unlocked, and as for replacing the jeans, I know that will not be so easy. Jeans and bathing suits... they make the dressing room a battleground. All that therapy... straight down the toilet.
Oh well. At least there was good thrift. And one of the patterns has sailor pants.
