Hoarder in the Making

From Left to Right: Made in Belgium, from Buffalo Exchange, $12 // Made in Turkey, from Unique Thrift Store, $5 // (My newest addition) Made in the USA, from Unique Thrift Store, $5

Just a short post to show off a new addition to my carpet bag collection! I didn't really need it, but you can't taunt me with details like that and a $5 price tag. It's too cruel! I don't want to be a hoarder or anything, so I may have to eventually sell or trade one of these in the near future. For now, I'll just study the insane amount of detail that goes into the production of this style bag. It's intriguing!

Happy Labor Day!

So long bare-armed sun-filled days in the park with a good book, my lover (though he looks super grumps in this photo!), and our favorite summer mixes.

Well guys, it's Labor Day and you know what that means. It's (un)officially the end of summer! I'm a little sad that it's over, not going to lie! I enjoyed my summer, and though it wasn't always easy (financially), good things are on their way this upcoming season. Ryan has been unemployed for the past 6 months and I'm so excited that he finally got a great job lined up this past week! It's kind of funny, he actually has to work today on Labor Day but neither of us are complaining. Anyway - I try not to get too into my personal life on my blog, but that has been a major turning point this year for us. So happy that we're back on the right track!
