...and I'm a teeny, tiny dress addict.
Yup. I see them and I just can't help myself! Yesterday there was a flea market in downtown Mesa that I wanted to check out, so I hauled my behind out of bed early and headed over there. Bubba stayed home to hang out with his father. Check out this cute little vintage camper that someone had:
I wish I could have seen inside! That short wall right inside the door was wallpapered in vintage Valentine cards, and everything was done in pink and white.
While I was there, I popped in to say hi to my friend Dorie
. They were doing a historic home tour and her house was one of the ones on it. The flea market was also conveniently on the little greenbelt in front of her house.
I know we're not supposed to take these types of photos
at arm's length, but hey! Sometime's a girl has to do what a girl's gotta do.
After I left the flea market I was supposed to go see one of my friends from playgroup. She invited me over to go through the clothes her girls had outgrown, but I wasn't scheduled to be there for another few hours. What to do, what to do?
Check out Goodwill because it was 50% off day, duh! I didn't buy a whole lot. I found a Ralph Lauren dress shirt that was three dollars and a royal blue Ralph Lauren Polo
shirt that was a dollar for Bubba. I also scored another vintage Vera Neumann
scarf for a dollar as well. There were two new little dresses added to my collection:
This one is cute, but mostly I got it because Bubba likes ladybugs.
Another Little Bitty dress. I love the smocking and the eyelet lace on the arm holes.
My big purchase was this:
Oh man. This thing is HUGE, and kind of heavy. I placed a quarter against the glass and it's nice and thick, with beveled edges. The frame is completely intact. There are no nicks or cracks in it. It was marked $39.99, but since it was 50% off day I got to bring it home for a mere $20. I love it! I'll probably leave the frame gold for now, but won't totally discount the idea of painting it in the future.
After my thrifting adventure I went over to my friend's house to look at more baby clothes and hang out and chat a bit. Here's what I brought home from her house:
Another Little Bitty dress.
I love the patchwork on this one. So sweet!
This one is newborn sized. I can't get over how tiny it is. I love the peter pan collar and the teeny bows on the sleeves.
Another Little Bitty dress. I love the scalloped trim with the eyelet lace. Such a nice detail.
This one is more of a cotton like the fabric of polo shirts. It has a matching diaper cover too.
I also got a few more diaper covers, including that white one with the lace ruffles across the bum. I think that is my favorite out of all the ones I've gotten so far! I also got some hats, some mittens, a few elastic headbands, and a pair of ruffly socks. There were also some teeny newborn onesies (seriously, so so freaking tiny) and some newborn footie jammies. Oh! And teeny diapers too.
