A day spent at the local thrift and antique stores and a quick trip to the flea mall. I love window shopping in antique stores, mostly because I can't really afford anything. My favorite section to look at is usually jewelry but as I'm getting older and thinking about having my own place I'm really enjoying looking at vintage furniture. I feel that they don't make furniture or even clothes that holds up as well as they used to. Today at Second-go-Round and Salvation Army I found these lovely bags:
black carpet-esque dooney and bourke vintage embroidered clutch
And I realize I said I was going to stop shopping, but bags don't count..right? Yesterday my mom came home with a lovely surprise for me. A friend of hers at work, who knows my love for elephants found an antique powder jar for me. Complete with glass elephant on top. I'll probably use it to keep my jewelry in.
When I got home from today's shopping excursion I made dinner with my mom and sister, who is home for the weekend. We made pasta with four cheese Alfredo and mixed seafood. For dessert I had been wanting to try this new recipe that I found here. Its a toasted marshmallow milkshake. While it is a complete sugar overload it is also completely delicious. I recommend anyone with a sweet tooth to try making it, all you need is a blender, vanilla ice cream, yogurt, milk, and of course marshmallows.
