Occupied.





My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can. -Cary Grant

So very true of my life. Even if I'm doing nothing of meaning, I try to stay as busy as possible. It keeps me from spending too much money (on more crap that I don't need), and it keeps me out of trouble. I just wanted to thank you for all your support on my silly 'busy work' of outfit shots and random day trips and to tell you how incredibly special you are to me and how happy I am to know you. So with that said... THANK YOU!

Vintage Fedora: Estate Sale $8
50's Blouse: Antique Mall $5

T-Straps: A friends

Scarf: Scrap fabric

Hey. I don't leave comments often, but realized I needed to encourage you in that I do read your blog and enjoy your pictures and stories. I love at the end seeing how much things cost. You inspire me!

So awesome Starr! I adore your sash and your shoes.

So strange, but I really want the old rusty truck.

Your look in trousers always makes me want to run out and buy a pair. You always look so good in them.

And to reply to the comment you left on my blog, I use a simple, pocket sized, point-and-shoot Kodak digital camera. Nothing fancy, but it does a darn good job when it wants to.
