HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MUG?

Obsessed...R. Carman vintage mug.  If you see this mug get it for me and I will pay you. 
Hi darling readers, it's Tuesday and I don't usually post this day but today you are lucky...ha!  I have been totally obsessed with looking for the mate to the thrifted, vintage, mushroom mug from France that I bought at Goodwill for .49cents.  I'm like Rain Man. ( I really do get all of my underwear from Kmart too, Joe Boxer, if you must know)   When I get an idea, it's all over.  Everything else has to wait until I get it out of my system.  Have you seen my mug?  Not my face, the coffee mug?  I posted it on Instagram.  I found another one on Ebay that I am going to bid on but in the meantime I went to 4 thrift stores in the last 2 days scouring for a mate, can't just have one.  What if I  break it or worse, what if Rob breaks it?  Is anybody else like this, I doubt it.  What's that you say?  I have too much time on my hands, not enough time, I'd say. 
 
 
I don't iron...this dress would probably look good if I did.  Eileen Fisher/Goodwill/$5.99 over the Summer, I like the wrinkled look.  Things can't be too perfect when you look like the farmer's wife. 

Went thrifting in this outfit but not luck on the mug. 
Working game night with the Seniors tonight...I'll bet you they had a set of these mugs...dawn xo

I love this outfit! It's so perfectly layered; you look great.

I will look for this mug next time I'm out. And I will also look for a sweater like my Lord Jeff classic for you. Just let me know what size you wear and I'll keep my eyes peeled!

Be patient, Dawn, and the gods of thrifting will provide! I am sure there is another mug just waiting for you to find it in a thrift store or at a garage sale, just when you least expect it!
You look snuggly in your cosy knit and wrinkly dress, haha! Gorgeous photos, as always. xxxx

The farmer's wife, I love that we're both two country bumpkins at heart! Love the rumpled look (ironing, what's that?) and I hope your quest for that adorable mushroom mug is successful!
