out of the dark.

^ a little blurry :) oops.
vest, dress, shoes - vintage thrifted

tights - thrifted
skirt - cut up from a dress i had when i was younger
doily necklace - made by me

i've been away from the blog for a few days.
enjoying family and friends and doing lots of garage saling.
but i'm back! can't wait to share my new finds with you!

my brother took these photos for me in an old building where he rents storage space.
the lighting was awesome, but the building was pretty creepy once you got away from the windows.
or when you got on the ancient elevator.
but we survived! and got some of his stuff moved back into his apartment. success!

happy monday! hope your week is off to a great start!

one saturday morning.

did any of you guys watch one saturday morning when you were younger?
i loved it! and this has nothing to do with all those sweet shows,
but this was my saturday morning this past weekend...

picked up the three little munchkins and met up with some of our sweet cousins
{after stopping at a few garage sales ;) }
and we headed over to the play ground.

then we had a nice little picnic. {love those baby hands.}

went to springdale farms to check out all the animals.
our first stop was to feed the mean and slightly terrifying geese.

stopped to watch the cute piglets snuggle.

said hi to mr. peacock that didn't seem to like us very much.

fed the ponies. malacai was the only one of the boys that was brave enough to try.

then we stopped by mcdonald's for some ice cream before dropping them back off at dad's.

i got myself a delicious smoothie. that ended up having to be shared with all three of the little moochers.

that evening i went out on a date night with my big brother.
we went to the movies, out to dinner, and then did some thrifting.

it was such a great saturday.
i hope yours was just as grand!
