Some random photos


Today Twila Jean and I went thrifting in Portland at the crack of dawn (ok, ok. 8:30.) and of course found a vast collection of ugly sweaters and above all, this creepy, creepy doll. She's made from a liqueur bottle! As we made our way around the store she kept popping up behind us with her arms open, staring at us, but we never saw anyone move her. At one point we turned around and there she was, headless!

Afterward we went to Twilas house and sorted through our treasure (including some wool navy fabric for skirts! Oh gosh, we'll have to not wear them on the same day...) and reading books with baby M. I wanted to pinch her cheeks all day, but she would definitely give me a piece of her sassy little mind.

The last picture...well...Sam and I stopped by Nordstroms to get a fresh pair of stockings (three for $22.50 right now!). I have not seen the movies, but the fact that there were these cardboard cutouts of Twilight guys randomly among the racks of clothing made me giggle, and not taking a picture was not an option. He gives Zoolander a run for his money. Blue Steel!

That doll is REALLY creepy...ick! I bet it lived in a house with shag carpet before it was banished to the thrift store.

That Twilight cutout is hilarious... I agree, very Zoolander!

How fun! I wish I had a friend who loved thrifting (and shopping in general) as much as I do.

I found twilight, amusing and was impressed how faithful they were to the book, really the character Bella is so unlikeable, even in the book, I know people like her and I ignore them frenemies.
