Thrift Shop Haul

beaded bag 1

On Tuesday I took two big bags of stuff to the Value Village. And I came back with these three things. First, this red corduroy purse studded with plastic beads that have been fused to the fabric. I remember having a small change purse equivalent when I was a wee girl. This bag is big and the design is stunning. And I immediately listed it on Etsy because I felt so guilty for shopping when I got home.

Virginia johnson scarf

I also found this Virginia Johnson scarf. I have always wanted one but could never afford it. Now I can be like the other Covet Garden ladies, scarf-wise.

architectural digest

And finally, I found this copy of Celebrity Homes: Architectural Digest Presents the Private Worlds of Thirty International Personalities. The book is from the 1970s. It turns out that I’ve been secretly trying to recreate Dinah Shore’s house (pictured above) all this time.
