Junk Hunt

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend; we sure did! I'm starting this Monday morning off with a junk hunt post. I got the coolest painting this weekend. I thought for sure that Tyrone would have flipped his lid over it but he just gave me his usually look and actually said it was "cool". I was a bit surprised. But he did ask me if we were going to have one of those houses. Whatever that question means? I just told him "probably".

I also got this vintage shirt which I plan on doing a simple makeover to and posting that later on. I can't forget to mention the shoes either  - they are these brown Docs that I could not pass up. They are in pretty good condition and will be perfect for fall with some cute colorful socks and tights.

As soon as I got home Friday I rearranged this wall to include my new Mexican velvet painting before Tyrone got home. I'm such a sneaky brat. This painting had a mate that I chose to turn down. It was cute but the blue on this donkey matches our bedroom better. I'm all about bright and out of the ordinary. I want people to be some-what entertained when they come to our house and ask questions. I do not plan on having a house with all taupe walls and over priced decor that you see every where.

I think he's adorable!
A few weeks back I also picked up this vintage mumu and I was so happy to find it. The embroidery on it is beautiful. It is huge though. So I plan on chopping it up! I think I'll make a shirt and a skirt out of it. My wheels are turning!!

Hope you all have a great week!

Giveaway starts tomorrow morning! Don't forget to check back! And good luck to all of the mommy's sending little ones back to school next week and the following weeks to come.

I didn't think that I was a fan of the painting, but it works on your wall! It's actually kind of fun :)

I had a dream about this muumuu!

Oh do tell about this dream...? Did you dream I made something kick-ass in it? Or were you drapped in it naked while drinking your Pepsi?

wow! I wish it THAT cool of a dream. I just dreamed that I saw it at a thrift store and I was like "now Bray and I can be twins"
I really love it! Cant wait to see what you make out of it!
