A Winter Rose

Hello Lovelies,
     I finally got a chance to take a few outfit photos yesterday while it was still light out! I have been looking for the perfect pleated skirt for awhile now in my thrift store adventures, and finally found it! I don't think I am going to be able to part with this one and sell it.  I love the light peachy pink color, but it was slightly hard to make it look wintry enough!  Another great find recently was this pink Nine West tweed coat! I am not usually a pink person, unless its a very light pink, but this was hanging right outside the fitting room so I had to try it on! Of course it was my exact size too.  The only problem was it was missing two of the main buttons.  It was marked at $14.99, which is pretty pricey for this particular Salvation Army store, so I asked the lady upfront if they would be willing to take any more off because of the missing buttons.  She marked it down to THREE NINETY NINE!!!!! I was having a kind of crappy day until that point, so I was super thankful and excited that she did that.  It just goes to show that it really never hurts to ask!  I also found out that on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, a volunteer comes in to alter or hem any item that you buy there for free! Until I get a sewing machine, this is such an awesome service to know about!

    I am sure this is going to be a busy and exciting week for everyone with family coming and going and travel plans.  I myself am staying in Colorado instead of going home to New Jersey.  I will be eating and celebrating with my boyfriends family, so it should be quiet and relaxing.  Quite the change to my usual thanksgiving at home, where I never exactly know who will be there and there always at least a few people I do not know that well thrown in.  But, I may miss the silly family games we play and my dad's wild rice stuffing! He uses Wild Rice from Minnesota, baked apples, raisins, and walnuts.  Oh and lots of butter! Maybe he can mail me a little bit! What is everyone's favorite dish at thanksgiving? I think my favorites are the candied marshmallow sweet potatoes, and regular mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy. I am excited to see what is going to be cooked this year! I think I am just going to go early and help cook whatever they are making instead of attempting my own dish this time. 
    Alright, well I hope everyone has a good Monday! I am going to try to do another Best of Etsy feature later in the week, so stay tuned!  Also, new items are going up in my shop this week, and I am thinking about doing a little Black Friday sale of my own! Make sure to stop by!
