THURSDAY'S THRIFT..secret graveyard....


Today's thrift is an H&M, colorful, lightweight, dress that I found at Goodwill. My cost $5.99.  

I paired this dress with a matching turquoise color bracelet and necklace that were found on separate occasions, the necklace from Plato's Closet for $8.00 and the matching bracelet at the flea market for less than $5.00.  The blue plastic cuff was a gift from a friend.


I decided to wear beaded flip flops since it has been so hot lately.  Anything above 78 degrees is too hot for me. They were also a gift.  It was raining on and off today so I decided to go thrifting plus, I needed to get out of the house.  I spent most of yesterday sobbing over my little kittens leaving me next week. I find solace at the thrift and I also found some great stuff that I will post next Thursday.  I want to thank everyone who supported me yesterday by commenting on my kitten photos.  It is so good to know that there are so many animal lovers out there.  Thank you darlings, so much.  I found this great location today on the way home from the thrift....it is a secret graveyard, lush with beautiful trees and paved roads that lead into a thick wooded area...so pretty and peaceful...until this guy came out of nowhere with 3 dogs.  Who lets their dog do his business on someones grave?  Weird...but he must have thought the same thing about me.  Who takes photos of themselves in a graveyard in the middle of the afternoon?  Answer: Bloggers who don't want people staring at them during a photo shoot.    Have a sweet Friday and thank you for visiting.  Lots of love, Dawn xo

Those kittens are adorable. I sincerely don't think I've ever seen sweeter kitten photos. They each have their own little personality and it shows in their faces. Sort of remarkable. About today's post, that dress was a great thrift and the colors look great on you. That was a beautiful place where you did your photography. I've got to get back outside myself. You have a good weekend, too. Debbie
