Brain Dump IV | Thriftanista in the City


Brain Dump IV

I'm excited to attend the Passion Test with Janet Bray Attwood this Saturday -- a workshop on leading a passionate and purposeful life. I received a complimentary ticket via Inspiring Social Media. Hey!!

I just "discovered" these pictures in this post. They make me giggle. They were taken when Violet was 2 months old.

I want to get my hands on a bottle of Jam Jar's new moscato. The Sweet Shiraz was my cheap wine of choice all winter.

I have pulled my sewing machine out of the box again. I have so many projects rolling around in my head. I'm going to start slow and work on changing the pant shape and length of my newly thrifted velvet pants.

After an extensive google search, I have found a thrift by the pound spot that isn't too far away! Yay! Who's excited? Just me?

I have been consistently working out 3 times a week for over 3 months now. I need to get a good in home workout established. Winter is sure to send me backsliding. Anyone know of a good in home workout?

Sell my car or not?

My hustling took a hit when I turned Suzy Homemaker. I'm not Superwoman, I can't do it all.

A few weeks ago I did an in store liquor promotion. I loved it. THiS may be my passion!

I have such a dependency to the squiggly line that lets you know you've spelled something wrong. I don't remember the last time I wrote on paper and sounded out words and used a dictionary (the book version).

I miss All My Children. I hope it does have new life online. It would be terrible for them to leave the fans with all of those cliffhangers. I'm ready for One Life to Live to wrap it up though. Are you shocked that I watch soap operas? What else can you do while eating bon bons? :)

Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter clothes have co-existed in my closets and drawers for many years. Now they are both overstuffed. This will be the first time in several years that I will have to put away summer clothes. Are you team co-mingle? or storage?

What's orbiting your brain right now?

I totally co mingle. I always feel like that summer dress can be revamped with a long sleeve shirt under it and some leggings.

These photos of the baby are hilarious!

I think I want a sewing machine. Not really sure what I will do with it, but I think i will stalk one out on Black Friday

I have a walk in closet and on one side is spring/summer and the other fall/winter. Usually I flip them on Columbus day to make fall/winter more accessible. I have to get to that yet, and in the morning it does slow me down.

Thrift by the pound, Hm...Oh, I went to Goodwill to buy clothing for a little girl at school who was growing out of all hers. I spent $48, but out of that mound of stuff, I got some brand new Gap cargos for two dollars. Sigh, they go on the spring side.

@Mimi get a machine. It's fun, practical, and somewhat relaxing..that gentle hum of the machine.

@Ellen Stewart (aka Ellie/El/e/Mrs. Seaman) the spot is $1 per pound. If you like goodwill you probably wouldn't like it. I'm sure there is a lot of digging and griminess. I love it. When I make it back out there, I'll have to check out the goodwill.
