Shiny Brites

Hello there! Today after work I ran to the same antique mall I went to last Friday, which is about 15 minutes from my job. I went there because I had time to kill before the board meeting tonight, which starts at 5:30. I also knew I had seen a enamel flower brooch in a display case last time that caught my eye, so I wanted to take a look at it outside of the case. The price was right (only $10), so I got it, and of course, while walking around, I spotted more items I wanted. I am seriously very impressed with this antique mall! It has a great selection, and great prices. I picked up a vintage cold cream jar (to display on my vintage vanity I'll be getting for our bedroom in our house), a vintage dessert tin to display, and a small vintage Christmas tablecloth.
I don't have much else going on the rest of the week yet, but Sunday I'll be going to church in the evening, and then going to my aunt and uncle's for dinner. I'm not sure yet if I'll be sleeping over my parents' that night, or staying at the apartment. I've been waiting on Bob to give me an answer on what he wants to do that night, himself.
In the pictures beow I'm wearing my new Pinup Girl Clothing ornament skirt, that I love oh so much! It arrived a week ago, and I've worn it four(!) times already! I wore it to work twice, to my work party last Saturday, and to a family dinner. I CAN'T STOP!! Previously my Oblong Box Shop reindeer skirt was my favorite Christmasy item of clothing, but this definitely rivals it for my #1 spot. I have gotten endless compliments on this beauty. I love how colorful the skirt is, and also that the ornaments are mid century ones! I do love Shiny Brites very much. I only have a few so far, and a couple of tree toppers, but can't wait to get more for when we get our vintage aluminum Christmas tree for next Christmas.

  1. Haha I don't blame you for wearing it multiple times - I do the same with my holiday items so they get the most wear before the holiday comes and goes. I still wear my winter outfits past Christmas if they're just snowy scenes - if we get stuck with snow through April, I am sure as heck gonna keep wearing my snowy outfits!!!

  2. Wow such an awesome Christmas inspired pinup outfit...I love the skirt! Merry Christmas to you and your family Bristol! xo
