Another Trip to Brays

I mentioned last weekend that my mom came to town for the flea market, but it was closed. Well, besides getting some stellar BBQ, we drove to the outskirts of town to one of my favorite stores: Brays Furniture (and antiques).  Miranda and I went there not long ago (here), and I bought my lovely buffet for my dining room. This trip was more just a "lookin' around" trip, but I got some great milk glass pieces. I haven't decided where to put them, but I love them!

Here are some interesting things I came across
LOVE THE ICE CREAM CUTOUTS! I also love that the seller decided to frame them on that gorgeous green/blue paper. 

Paige sort of gets lost in all the stuff, and this room takes a little patience.

There's a whole wall of these "taxidermy" animals...I have a feeling some of them aren't real animals

And here's what I wore for the nice, breezy Saturday out. It's not that great of an outfit, but boy was it comfy! Those little shoes have gotten WORN OUT over the past few months. The dress is one I got before I started college (4 years ago!) at Forever 21. It was only $5, and I still wear it. I ordinarily don't put much stock in the quality of F21 garments, but this little beast of a dress has really stood the test of time.

Dress: F21
Leggings: can't remember :(
Bow, shoes: Urban Outfitters
Tank: Express

I am floored that a F21 piece has lasted that long!
I would not know where to begin in that place - it is ca-razy but would be so fun!

You are just too cute! Love all the oldies, but goodies. I love old sewing machines. My grandmother had one that used a pedal. I really wanted it, but someone else got there first. So cool!
