It's not all about you. For reals.

In my spare time, ha, not really but when I like to distract myself with stuff--I have been going to estate sales, yard sales, and thrift stores. I have managed to find some really good stuff. Due to the overwhelming amount of cute stuff out there--I decided to post vintage items to my Etsy shop, for fun. Here are a couple of things that I have bought:


Last weekend we went to St. Helens and went to some thrift stores and a swap meet. For a small town we found a few things. We were actually on our way to Means Nursery and Joy Creek too but were distracted by signs that said, "Swap meet on the waterfront in St. Helens." Yeah, you can't really pass that up. Turned out that it actually hadn't started yet. Dang. Still so much fun though!

Here we are today: after yard work, yummy breakfast and lunch, some cleaning--we are watching the end of season 4 of 'The Wire'. And can I just say...OMG.

kev got sucked into the wire. i watched a few episodes, but he could never wait to watch the next one with me and i never had the urge to watch them by myself.

i just got done with a little yard work myself. hey, if you're not already, save your empty wine bottles for me. fun garden bed project and we need all the bottles we can get (438 to be exact).

Did I tell you it was actually asphalt making the fire smell? Not the wood at all! Crazy, there was asphalt on one of the concrete slabs lining the pit. Woops! Got rid of that..........
