Summer so far…in pictures

Summer so far…in pictures

I had really hoped to be back up and running way before now, but since I last stopped by here, quite a bit has happened. I’ve continued to split my time between my home here in the Huntsville area, and my family’s home in Mississippi.

So far in 2017….

So far in 2017….

A new year is upon us – and I have already made my first thrifted vintage purchase: I had never heard of Guelph Coffee before. But doesn’t it sound delicious?

And I guess this is as good a late night day as any to launch a new category, “None Left Behind”. It’s not as serious or philanthropic as it sounds, though. It’s just that as a vintage collector AND reseller, there are some things that I grab whenever I see them, no matter how many…

I didn’t think it was possible for me to be this exhausted.

I didn’t think it was possible for me to be this exhausted.

Note: Yes, today is a two-for-one, because this post was typed last night after my little day-trip to Franklin, Tennessee. But since I was so, so, so tired from this week, I forgot to finish the post after a small distraction. That distraction led to a break, which led to me sitting on the sofa to watch this week’s Project Runway, which led to me waking up on the sofa well after midnight this morning. Today was the day for…
