they have a friendship that is unlike all others.
they see each other through life in the best and worst and whiniest days.
they learn everything about life, side by side.
and they will effect each other's lives for the rest of life.
these two have something so special, it can't be explained.
clearly, they are two of a kind.


the oldest dress i own {and equally as ancient teacups}

i found a few items hidden away today.

i couldn't help pulling this one out...

we had a the worst wedding photos of all time.
posed. uncreative. stiff and boring. i disliked them so much that i never had any printed outside of our proofs. looking back, i'd love to have a few...but being that they were shot on 35mm, (yes, 35mm, it was that long ago), i have no access to them. i'm sure the photographer has undoubtedly long since thrown them away.
oh how i wish to go back in time and at least have a few pinterest-ish shots of our special day together.

it's old and getting yellow...but the way i felt with it swirling around me...with a sparkling new wedding band and a sparkling new husband...it's a day i'll always cherish...even if we don't have beautiful photos to remember it by.
(since i never had it "preserved", i'm going to try vacuum sealing in one of these...has anyone done this to a wedding dress before?)

i also found these in my favorite vintage shop.

i have a strange obsession with these little tin tea cups. these are from the 1930's and while the pattern isn't my favorite, for some reason, anything on a tin cup looks lovely.

emery has a set already, so these will soon be gifted to a friend's baby girl. tiny teacups might be my favorite all time little girl gift.

and then there are these...
per usual, i ran out of time last month and never peeked on my camera to see if there were any gems amidst the daily snapshots. 

these capture her so well and make me smile when i see her scrunched up nose, clearly upset about something :)

i also found documentation of a blossoming friendship and caught the tale end of a moment with these two standing together. arms around, content to be together. just standing still. highly unusual.
they are learning to treat each other sweeter and irritate each other less. big news around here.

and then there is this one. big brother washing mud off of her shoes.

good heavens. 
the cuteness.


scantily clad lady {who i adore}

there is something so endearing about this sassy lady.
though she's short on clothes, she's full of vintage style and demure years of well worn fabrics.
i found her years ago at a yard sale, and then she landed in storage when we sold our house 2 years ago.
i unearthed her this weekend while cleaning out our many items still in storage. i'm prepping for a giant barn sale to rid ourselves of said storage...but she is one of the items i just can't quite part with.
poor gal. she seriously needs a few limbs and a place to live.
but i can't do it.
i can't let her go.
so my scantily clad lady and i are sticking together.

anyone out there have one of these? any creative suggestions of ways to use her in order to convince my husband she shouldn't be a sad patron of the barn sale?
