modern is vintage.

a good friend gave me a gift card to the online retailer www.modcloth.com and i have found myself wanting the entire inventory. vintage and retro accessories, clothing, and decor. reminds me a little of urban outfitters. i also enjoy the names of the products such as the "Try This on for Siz-zle Dress" or "some bunny to love" the creativeness of it makes me smile.
the style reminds me to utilize thrift stores more. the gift of recycling is truly great. i have a few items that i am constantly asked where they came from and i am always proud to say the thrift store. purchases from thrift stores are like treasures. just takes a little hunting to find the treasures.
im not a saver especially with gift cards as they seem to be forgotten if not used immediately however i have yet to pick the winning number for the gift card purchase but i have a feeling it will have to be a dress:)

i do not have an agenda or theme for this blog. mostly because i don't follow any blogs (yet) and am not sure i could even pick a theme as there are far too many different and interesting things in life to only focus on one. but i thought i'd try it on for size. i am a very expressive person so i might find it to be the perfect place for some of my thoughts.

i just finished the prototype for my beautiful sisters baby shower. i may have made too much work for myself which is why i am so thankful for the friends in my life:) here is a pic
