Mother’s Day was spend taking a little road trip to the coast, antiquing along the way. I found a cute depression era apron that belonged to a lady with the last name Girabaldi, the name of the town I was in. I passed up a jadite and deco patterned graniteware small laundry canisters with German writing on them, with a stand made to hang on the wall. I wanted it but I can’t screw things into the basement walls. I found a couple items for my shop. After we stopped near Cannon Beach and played in the sand. Damien, my three year old son was climbing up cliffs of sand with ease, making mommy nervous. It was a beautiful sunny day. I feel fortunate to have a husband who went along with whatever I wanted to do.
I wore some vintage side button shorts just bought on ebay paired up with a linen Anthropologie top with large bow. Top is ingenious. It looks odd off a person, like a crop top with elastic at the bottom. It’s made for high waisted bottoms so there is no tuck in bulge. Being that I’m collecting many high waisted pants, shorts and skirts it’s perfect! Linen is one of those fabrics that just lasts and lasts too. I’m never hesitant to pay a high price if I know my garment will last. Also, check out my fav 1930’s sunglasses.
