Fox Hunt


Today was a wonderful crisp autumn day, perfect for a fox hunt sweater vest! I got this vest a while back and have been waiting for a good day to wear it, it has doggies on it!
My yarn from Knit Picks came today! I'm so excited, I'm going to knit this sweater, only shorten in a bit so it will sit at my waist. We'll see how that goes. I'll keep you posted on my knitting joys and woes.
Tonight my mother, friend, and I went to the Portland Greek Festival, something that I look forward to every year. There's folk dancing, and best of all yummy food. Did any Portlanders make it to the festival?

Kendra, this is for you:


Oh! My shop is on the list of Top Five Vintage Shops on Etsy! How cool is that? I kind of feel bad now that my shop is a bit sparse for this time of year, so off to go list some things!

Sweater Vest and hat: Buffalo Exchange

Skirt and blouse: The Urban Eccentric

The woman in the six hundred dollar banana suit is going to dance in Target for you people?! COME ON!

(I love it. You should have bought it and been Gob or George Michael for Halloween. Well, I guess not. Still amazing.)

Lovely outfit! I adore sweaters that have some cuter little pattern in them like the little dogs in your! Great bag as well.
You've made me want to start up some knitting projects myself.
Haha, and I love the banana costume.

I love that hat. It reminds me of one I tried on at a little vintage store the other day. Makes me wish I picked it up!
