Thrift Fun

skinny jeans: Faith21
Top: Forever21 +
shoes: Jessica Simpson via Marshalls
earrings/heart necklace: Forever21
Key Necklace: (made) chain from old necklace, key from antique store.
bangles: re/dress

I picked up this AMAZING purse and bracelet at the thrift store right down the block from us! I paid $2 for both items and I was so excited about the deal that I did a little happy dance as I left the store. 

I've been absolutely and positively addicted to It has led me to believe that I am a crafty person and can do whatever I want to as long as I have a glue gun and glitter in hand! For that reason, I've picked up some other items not pictured in the thrift store:
an old frame (making a jewelry holder)
3 ornate silver platters (making magnetic note holders and maybe a chalkboard)
2 glass milk bottles (might keep as is, or paint)
a mini loaf pan (made the most amazing berry bread thing this morning!)
food scale (i plan on making macarons this weekend and needed one)
those items along with a 2 things my husband wanted
plus the purse and bracelet
we spent  $13

I love spending so little money and getting so much! 
we plan on going back next week and I'm super excited about what we'll find next.
OH! btw, my insanely, wonderful husband decided to surprise me with something I've been LUSTING over for ever! 
I am the now proud owner of beautiful KitchenAid Standing Mixer and am elated with joy! 
I honestly have to refrain from baking everything on my wishlist now!

Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Loaf
(i didn't have 2 cups of blueberries so i mixed it up with 1/2 cup of raspberries, 1/2 cup of black berries and
1 cup blueberries. also, i didn't use lemon zest because i didn't have any on hand!)
