Family Resemblance

When visiting my father the other day, we started reminiscing about the past, and dad pulled out an old photo album he had. I took some photos of the photos with my iphone, and I thought I'd share. A rare glimpse into my father's side of the family. 

This is my dad's mother (not Grandma June - that's my mom's side of the family).
She died when my dad was 10 years old. Do you think I look like her?
My father as a little boy.
My dad was a bit of a bad ass when he was a teenager.
My dad as a teenager, slyly giving the middle finger. When I was 13, he taught me how to play the guitar.
Here I am! Even then, I loved being the center of attention and having my picture taken.
Hamming it up!
I defined the phrase "daddy's little girl". 
There was a period of time in the 80s where my
dad had a reeeeeally crazy mustache.
Love this one!
My dad has had this picture of us in the heart frame for forever. We decided to recreate it - the 2012 version.


Do you think my father and I look alike?

The Top Five of Past and Present

I've been thinking a lot about my favorite vintage pieces that I have acquired over the years, and I thought I'd post a quick recap of my favorites sold and currently for sale. I try to live by the motto of no regrets, but man oh man, I definitely second guess myself for giving these ones up! 



If you just can't live without one of those pieces that are still up for grabs, click on the individual links above the photos, or just go to my etsy site here and find them.

I'll be posting some new items soon (starting tonight - and including that amazing eagle sweater from my last post - I ended up deciding to part with it!) so keep an eye out for some great new wares. xo!

A Real Doozy of a Piece

Damn, I hate it when this happens. I have one of the most amazing vintage pieces (probably in my top 10 most amazing pieces I've ever come across - I'll make a top 10 list of my favorites in the next post!), and I just don't know if I can part with it. 

Tell me what I should do!
