Is that not the cutest mug you ever did see? I saw it in All Things Possible, and it had to come home with me. It's adorable and it has owls on it, and owls are my favorite...as are puns. This mug is just perfect.
Speaking of perfect, I bought my first actual 1950's dress the other day from the sweetest lady at this antique shop in Downtown Murfreesboro. I saw it 2 weeks before I bought it, but had no money, and I thought it would be gone by the time I came back. Sure enough it was still hanging on the rack exactly as it was the first time I visited, and I quickly snatched it up. The lady who owns the antique shop said the woman who it used to belong to grew up riding horses and was very well off. She said she drove a Porsche to high school if that gives you a margin on just how well off. I love the quality and color of the fabric, and it hits me so perfectly above the knee. I made sure to wear my vintage slip underneath that was given to me by my grandmother, and I also adorned the dress with one of her mother's old broaches. The only thing that isn't 50's or 50's inspired is my hair. I've been running around, and it was much too hot in my apartment for rollers, so I just put it up in a bun and went on with my day. I will have to pin curl my hair another day and do a tutorial when I have more time. People love tutorials.
