If at first you don’t succeed…A little cameo and owl earring action

If at first you don't succeed...A little cameo and owl earring action

So if the other day was SOMEWHAT of a thrifting fail…yesterday was a thrifting WIN. And at Salvation Army for a change. I haven’t shopped there much, but the few times I have haven’t yielded much luck.

But did you SEE that cameo ring and beyond adorable owl studs??

Luck.

The ring was a mere $1.99 and the earrings set me back twice that at $3.99…but I couldn’t put those adorable guys back.

I could stare at those owls forever. So cute and relaxed. Unfortunately I won’t be able to. They’ll be on my ears. Physically impossible. But I’ll let other people. And try and remember that that is why someone may or may not be staring at me and try not to get too freaked out. Thems owls is cute.

Now lets talk about the cameo. I’ve been wanting a cameo piece of jewelry for awhile, and how I haven’t found one yet is beyond me, they are so popular, but clearly I hadn’t found one yet cause I didn’t have one! But now I do. And it’s on top of a pretty pink stone. On top of a ring. On my hand. I like. And it will go well with most of my clothing items too. Which is good.

I wore both jewelry items out the door of the store, in addition to the $4 gold bangle I got and $2 purplish pink sunglasses. If I could have drank out of the two earth toned oversized ceramic mugs that I got also, I feel like I probably would have used them too:). They just weren’t serving coffee at the exit of the store that day ;).

I was glad I got a good thrifting trip in while I was still hanging with my Mom. She enjoys good finds as much as I do, and joy loves company just as much as misery does I have found. So her company was appreciated. She bought a dress I liked and said she’d mail it to me after wearing it a few times. We’ll see. It may work as TN stays warmer a little longer than CT does. Now I’ll have a dress share going on as well as the shoe share I am supposed to be doing with my friend in Utah.

Happy thrifting and vacationing and living! I can’t wait to get back to my Nashville home base today, as much as I have enjoyed vacation, it’s always good to go home. And to see my puppy son 🙂
