I went thrifting/antiquing earlier this week with Lauren of Dear Golden Vintage. We packed some sandwiches, piled in the car and set off to do some heart-pounding, small-town shopping. By the end of the day I was almost cross-eyed and had a terrible headache - the result of hours of focusing intently on tiny things behind glass. But no matter - it's is a small, small price to pay for these beauties.

Beautiful finds--that sterling and chrysoprase necklace is my favorite! I am glad you are out there saving the good little things behind the glass.
