It's coming along!!!

Here it is! My new comforter on my guest bed. I also picked up some cute vintage pillow cases at a thrift store for $.50 each. YESSSS! Now I just need to paint the walls, buy some sheets, curtains, and wall hangings, paint my vintage dresser, and add some accessories. Shoo. Still so much to do, but I love doing it!

We are going on vacation to Florida next week, so hopefully I will be able to find some vintage stuff down there. So when I get back that will be my project. TO GET THAT ROOM DONE!

huh...Used bedding is ok!

I used to be against buying used bedding, but vintage bedding is so much cuter and cheaper than the new ones you find in the stores. Of course the quality for the price is better too. I figured, I buy used clothes... I wash them and they are as good as new. So why not used bedding... I will definitely wash my bedding in HOT water, just for peace of mind.

So I am redecorating my guest room, and I always start off with picking out the bedding first. I let it be my inspiration. I found this adorable vintage chenille bedspread on Etsy for only $48 with shipping. It is unique and ADORABLE! Now I just need to go to the thrift store and buy some cute floral pillow cases and sheets. Mix and match, Girls, mix and match! I can't wait to show you my new guest room. It might be a few months, though.

This is the chenille bedspread I got on Etsy,
but this is not my bed or room.

A Classic Look

Lately, I have been watching a ton of Mad Men. I started with the first season, and have been watching episodes everyday. The CLOTHES! Ohhh I looove the clothes. And the decor! uhh. Gorgeous! Anyways, I love the classic feminine look of 60's dresses. So I went to a few thrift stores and I found a couple of adorable dresses. One is a pink and red rose print on a white background, straight and sleeveless. I just need a red or pink belt to go with it. And I got it for $5! YAY! The other one is a blue floral print, full at the waist. It was $5 too! I can't wait to wear them!

Top-notch Flea Market

This is one of the great flea markets I love going to in West Virginia. It is held at a drive-in movie theatre. That morning we got up at 6am. We are NOT morning people, but for the love of vintage we got up early. We stopped at a gas station to get breakfast on the way. Yay! Gas station breakfast! JK Yuck! But I do love Honey Buns! Anyways, when we got there the sellers weren't even all set up yet. We walked around the place once, and then we went and sat in the car until all the sellers were up and ready. Of course, there were sellers who thought their stuff was worth gold, and others who thought their stuff was worth dirt and I thought it was gold. lol The joys of hunting. It was more like a huge yard sale, considering the prices and all. And this flea market wasn't one of those Chinese merch ones. Thank God! I'm telling you, the North is the place to go to find good old stuff. The backwoods North to be exact!
