Item of the day

Available at my etsy site...
An awesome pair of 80's pumps (Size 8) with a quite innovative heel for that time. I know we see teacups and guns and lightbulbs used for heels these days, but for the 80's I'd say that this was a pretty unique choice finish. I'll have them listed later tonight if your interested.

Oh my goodness! I love so many things about this post....My Girl and My Girl 2 are seriously some of my all time favorite movies! I loved them growing up, and I STILL love them to this day! Also, so random, but I saw the same Jim Beams collectors bottle in one my my patient's homes the other day, and thought it was awesome!

I cannot believe you found all of that for $8! Was it all at a thrift shop?

I was just about to say the exact things like Kristin had said above! Everything is wonderful - the recalling memory of My Girl (I was so little when I saw this movie but it still sticking on my mind till forever!), the new gems finds (for $8! you're killing me!), your sweet little dress and new shoes. Sooo adorable! The saddest thing is there are not so many antique or thrift store around here, so it's hard to find great stuff like that in such affordable price :((

Kristin- I know, "My Girl" seriously melts my heart and this trailer takes me back to those days. I'm definitely gonna have to watch the movie now. :)

I can't believe you saw the EXACT same bottle! I did some research and found that Jim Beam has a lot of different series of collectors bottles, but to have seen the same one?? Crazy!

I found all that stuff at the same thrift store. It's got a lot of junk so you really have to dig but they do have some treasures. That etching that I love so much had a tag that said $8 but I knew they wouldn't charge me that, it's weird...they usually only want 5 bucks. Again...crazy, huh?!

Clara-
I hate that you don't have many cheap thrift stores in your town, I couldn't live without them.
Glad you got your internet working though, let me know when you get your letter! :)
