★newest finds!★

Like a good thrifter, I got my time at the local shops in :)
Here is some of what I found this week:

This is my most favorite recent find--
a vintage Lanz dress.
The color is so pretty in person, a sort of

I love the button details on it, such as at the sleeves...

and a little row at the shoulder.

Super cute.

I also found this dress.
It's sort of Wednesday Addams, but I like it! 

A vintage baby blanket.
I will never tire of cute little baby blankets
with all their homemade details :)

Lastly, these vintage paintings, both of the same woman.

There is no writing on the backs,
and only one is signed.

As always, I have to wonder--
who was the subject, why were they painted,
who held onto this piece for so long?
What was their life like?

I shall never tire of vintage paintings, either :)

Yay, Halloween is almost here!
My daughter is going to be a detective.
This is a picture of us from today.
The local aquarium was having a special Halloween event.
We are standing by a mad scientist laboratory, lol.

Knowing me, I probably won't post again before then--
hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!

And if you're in the mood for a "spook,"
take a look at my earlier post where I share some e.v.p's 
my husband and I captured.
I'd love to know what you make of them!

Don't forget to visit all the fun thrift finds here!:

I wonder about the stories behind many things that I find at the thrift store. Interesting paintings.

Lovely finds. The Wednesday Addams dress is wonderful - it looks like something from modcloth!
