macro thrift trip

Some shots from last Saturday's thrift trip, which was filled with early spring produce from the farmers market, a fantastic lunch of celery soup and goat cheese tart, and some great thrifting finds.

Here I am, in a 1940s print crepe blouse, ever-present mustard J. Crew cardigan (seriously, I wear it all the time), jeans, and 1950s lady cop oxfords.

Close-up of the print on the blouse, which buttons up the back with the cutest clear blue plastic buttons with flowers on them.

The most ridiculous print I have ever seen on a western shirt.

Gratuitous dog shot. Well, not entirely gratuitous. We celebrate Lucy's birthday every Cinco de Mayo, so please join us in wishing her happy birthday. She's about 77 in dog years, but can still run circles around me. When she's not napping. We celebrated with a trip to the pet supply store where she was allowed to sniff the various rawhide items to her heart's content, and where I learned of the existence of cherry-flavored pigs' ears. Like plain pigs' ears aren't disgusting enough. There will be a nice walk in the woods once the weather improves, and special treats. No pigs' ears--just chicken jerky.
