Thrift Store Therapy---Gnome Purse

Holy cats, look at the purse I found at the cat benefit thrift store!

Is it just me, or does that gnome look a little...psychotic?

Ha ha!!!!

Thrift Store Therapy---Carousel Brooch

I collect brooches and I was ecstatic to find this rather intricate carousel pin at a local thrift:

A unicorn! This pin has reminded me that the wonderous carousel in Albany, Oregon has been finished, after years in the making, and is ready for people to ride its truly unique set of carousel animals, including everything from classic horses to salmon, cats, giraffes, peacocks, foxes, and a slew of mythical creatures. Volunteers carved the whole thing and each animal was sponsored by a patron who donated the money asked for a certain creature to be carved. I think this carousel will go down in history as one of the greats. If you ever find yourself near Albany, Oregon, it's a must see!

Wear Wacky Socks!!

I am delighted at the kaleidoscope of crazy printed socks out there these days.

I do wear mine under my pants and leggings---but I also feel like such great socks should be shown off, so I wear them with skirts as well. Life is short, the world is grim...wear the dang socks :) Wear them so people can see them. Wear them even though you might be "old". If you like socks with cats on them or badgers at a birthday party or mushrooms or unicorns pooping rainbows (all socks I have seen) then wear them proudly.

Wear some goshdarned squirrel slippers too, while you are at it.

These were a gift from a friend. Love 'em!
