...'politically incorrect' post.

How time flies, when you have absolutely N.O.T.H.I.N.G. to write about.
So, as the rest of the world is warming up, and we're NOT...
SWEET,SWEET Train Case & Vintage Coral/Pink Smoke-Infinity scarf found at the last day of an Estate Sale for a whopping total of $2.25!  LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! this scarf!!!!!!
 J & I have been going to a few hit or miss (mostly BIG misses!) estate sales.  I Finally attended my first rummage sale of the season on Saturday morning ~ talk about a MOB scene!!!
 Picked up a few odds-n-ends for repurposing...

 Picked up a few Mid-Century & Retro pieces for resale

 and then I found this little .50¢ guy that made me SOO happy!!  My Grandmother started me on an 'old-fashioned' Sterling charm bracelet when I was about 12.  I have made it into a 'journey bracelet' - only adding souvenir charms.  Well, with the popularity of the 'Italian' charm bracelet and 'Pandora' charm bracelet, etc..., etc... - you can't buy the cheap, cheezy little charms on every street corner anymore!!  Needless to say, I've been to Disney twice and didn't have a charm from there - NOW I DO! 
 It looked like the same person was getting rid of there entire charm bracelet 'collection' - (each bracelet complete w/ charms only .50¢  and all sterling) - so I grabbed them - who knows, I may need South Dakota or Alaska someday ;-)

(MY BRACELET...and YES- there is LOTS of room left!!!!)

VERA2014#1 $1

The other morning I met up with a friend for breakfast. I showed up wearing my 'newest' favorite scarf.  While chatting she asked if it was one of 'those' infinity scarves....  I said not really because it is vintage, so technically it is a SMOKE RING scarf - but that is too Politically Incorrect for them to be called now.  I told her that I had a few of the 'originals' at home and promise I would do a CLOSET COLLECTION post on them so here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure....

FAYS!!?! I remember them!!

Not sure why you need all of these complicated instructions, when all you have to do is pull it on over your head!!?!

VERA did a few of these - check it out here

Thanks to 'Ms. Tabatha Katt' for being such a Wonderful model ;-)

I never tire of your Vera collection!! I love my old charm bracelet and would grab any I saw for 50 cents? REALLY?? Score!

I die that you found those charm bracelets for pennies! The little globe charm alone is killer. I have a silver charm bracelet too that was started when I was a baby and I always look for charms for it when I travel! My mom has one and I started one for my daughter as well. Love that tradition!
