Spring Dreaming

Hello there! We are nearly alfway through January, which makes me happy. Bob and I are just staying in today. Yesterday I cleaned and did laundry (fun!), went to an antique mall where I got a Bakelite bangle for $11(!) and a gorgeous Shiny Brite indent ornament, and Friday evening Bob and I went out to dinner and ran an errand. 
We don't have much going on in the next couple of months; I'm going to one antique show with my mom at the end of February, and going antiquing with my mom in the middle of March in Pennsylvania. This is definitely the slow time of the year for weekend activities.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my very first true vintage dress, which I bought almost two years ago, at a vintage shop in Nashville. Best $40 I ever spent! The colors are so bright and happy, and though the dress is big at the waist, the matching belt hides that. It's impossible not to have my spirits lifted when I'm wearing this outfit. The outfit is obviously perfect for spring, but that doesn't stop me for wearing it year round, ha.
My newest Enid bag matches the dress, as does my new Pyrex piece! The Pyrex bowl isn't vintage; Pyrex is still being released currently. I got this bowl and another bigger one for only $19, including tax and shipping, from the Pyrex website. They were having a buy one, get one 50% off sale. Target sells some of their bowls, too.

Bangles and brooch: Etsy (BrighterBakelite and VirginiaRetro)

  1. I love that the dress matches your pyrex and purse! It's SUCH a cute dress! And staying in sounds lovely. I always fail to appreciate relaxing do-nothing days until they're past!
