My morning routine is simple: wipe the sleep out of eyes/brush teeth/maybe comb hair a little ("Beauty" done. There's a reason I don't do fashion posts. For now.), feed the incessant and begging Yuko, drink four glasses of water, a little coffee (usually a fruit smoothie but I'm so tired these days), edit or finish blog post for the day, publish. Since starting the #100happydays (read more) project I find myself wanting to take a picture of my computer every morning and type about how much I love writing and editing while stimulants flow through my system give a creative rush.
My work gives me anxiety. (Thought stream: Where are the sales? Need more merchandise? I have too much now. Gotta clean. I want my posts and photos to be better. AAAAH! Never caught up!), sometimes I think of quitting, but I have a deep, abiding love for it- especially writing, staging/editing photos and getting lost to the work flow for hours. I'm still on a thrifting break but damn, turns out I still love my job even when I "hate" it. (Let's work it out, work, baby. We can make it work.) I went to a couple of thrifts this week and couldn't put back the goodies in today's post:
A vintage seller can always use a well-priced globe in their inventory. Not sure if this guy is vintage but it does look like the ones I remember from school. It will be going to my Southern Crossing booth for $25.00- unless you'd like it? Let me know. (E-mail.)
Don't mind the blurry Yuko-head. My mom found this beautiful retro clutch at the Goodwill pound store and bought it over to me. I don't sell these well, not apparel to stage purses with perhaps? It will go to Etsy soon, but make me an offer!
I picked up and put down this adorable Calico kitten big eye art piece so many times and decided it had to join my inventory. It'll go to Etsy and the Antique Mall booth soon.
The face on this thing is just too precious! And I not-so-secretly want a Calico of my own someday. She has big olive eyes just like...
The Yuko. This is her "hurry, hurry, feed me now" face, she's lingering around her food bowl. She never speaks unless she wants food or is telling a stranger to back off. Blurry, sorry, she wouldn't hold still.
I've been lucky finding silver storage baskets, they're usually expensive when I encounter them but this guys was as cheap as the last. Going to use it to organize some things in my pantry for now. The typewriter was my moms, one of our very scant family heirlooms. Not for sale.
My mom also found this guy at the Goodwill by-the-pound store, it's perfect! Surprised to find the old gal in such great shape, you really can find good, unbroken mod things at the "pound store" level with persistence and a hand from Lady Serendipity.
Mom also gave me these fans, she bought a lot of these Philippines souvenirs from the Goodwill store. They are gorgeous, I'll be putting them in Southern Crossing soon.
She's going to take her lot with her on her upcoming trip to Puerto Rico to pass out to family members as gifts.
For any who wonder where The Yuko hides in shots these days, she's usually perched high somewhere watching me work, biding her time until her next feed.
Buy It. You Know You Want it.... All of these items will be listed online (or ebay or Etsy) soon (will update with links) if you'd like to buy anything you see PLEASE do e-mail me! Get it all away from me! Halp!
