Hello there! I'm loving this long weekend; I actually have a four day weekend, which is even better! So far it's been a good one. Friday I cleaned and did laundry, took a walk, and just stayed in at night and watched a movie. Saturday I went to Adamstown by myself (my mom was going to come, but ended up going out to Ohio with my dad instead), and last night Bob and I went out to dinner, and then stopped at a bar for a drink. Tomorrow we're going to his family's bbq.
I usually go to Adamstown twice a year, and I don't always find much, but it's still fun to go and look. It's about an hour & 45 minutes from me, but it's worth it. It's know as the antique capital of the U.S., because of how many antique malls and shops there are there. My parents have been going there for about thirty years now. I didn't spend too much money yesterday, but still got a few items I really like, which is the perfect combination! I got a Lustroware cookie cansister (plastic) that had wanted for awhile, and will look great in our red and turquoise kitchen in our house, an ice cream carton with Bing Crosby on it, a drinking glass with atomic stars on it, and some vintage postcards.
By the way, we closed on our construction loan for our house on Friday, FINALLY!!!! It's taken such an unbelievably long time, and the process has been fraught with frustration for us, but especially for Bob, who has been the one dealing with the bank and contractors. He works in the construction industry, which is the main reason why he is dealing with the contractors himself.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new to me vintage dress that I got from Etsy. I haven't been buying many dresses lately, but this one really spoke to me. It has a zip front!!! I LOVE zip fronts; they're so much easier than a back or side zip, and buttons usually mean gaping, which I hate. Front zips on vintage dresses seem to be rare, too. When I saw the measurement sfor the dress, I crossed my fingers it'd fit me, since my measurements are an inch or two bigger than the dress, but it fits like a glove. I just adore that beautiful floral print, and I really love pink and turquoise together.
