Christmas Birdie

Hello there! Tomorrow my mom and I are going antiquing together in Adamstown, PA, along with her doggy, Heidi. Heidi sleeps on my feet the whole way out and back, and keeps them nice and warm! She's a Sheltie, so she has LOTS of beautiful, warm fur. She's obsessed with my mom, and never wants to leave her side. I'm very excited to go to Adamstown, as it's the BEST place to go antiquing, and I haven't been in six months! I used to hate going there as a child, when my parents dragged my sister and me, and now it's one of my favorite places. Isn't that funny the way things work?? 
Today Bob and I are just staying in, which is nice, after all of the family holiday get togethers as of late. Yesterday I was happily surprised to get out of work really early, at 11:30, and I then I met my mother, sister, and grandparents for lunch, and after that my sister stopped over my apartment. Monday we'll be going to Bob's favorite restaurant for an early dinner, and then out for a drink, and Tuesday we'll be going to his dad's for an early dinner. 
My Christmas was good; I got a lot of great things! The biggest gift was a Heywood Wakefield corner cupboard that my parents gave us. I can't wait to use it in our house, to displays some of antiques on. I have almost no room to display things in our apartment now. 
Since that was such a big gift, my parents just gave me a few small things, like a vintage Christmas rug, vintage Holt Howard Santa salt and pepper shakers, some ornaments, etc. 
Bob really impressed me; he picked everything out on his own, and got me a set of vintage Shiny Brites that I REALLY love. They're pretty colorful, and most of them are indent ornaments, which are my favorites. He didn't even know that, he just lucked out!
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Pinup Girl Clothing Birdie dress. I have one other Birdie, but it's 3/4 sleeve. I love the Birdie style. To me, it's pretty quintessential 50's. 
I wore this outfit on Christmas Eve, when Bob and I went to church, and my aunt and uncle's house. The colors in it are obviously perfect for Christmas. I got it second hand a few months or so ago for a great price, and hadn't worn it out yet.

  1. I LOVE getting to leave early from work - it's the best surprise!! I get so much done with those bonus few extra hours. I wish it happened more often during non-holiday times!
