i spent the afternoon taking pictures of some new clothing going in the shop next week. i also found a metal basket at the thrift store yesterday that i'm going to use to store things in. and my sister found these awesome boots in mint condition. i have a little boot envy. i hope everyone enjoys their halloween weekend!

i got to spend the day with my sister, liz. we went thrift shopping and found tons of great things. we were supposed to buy some pumpkins to carve tonight but everywhere we looked they were sold out. we need to plan these things out a little better. oh well, at least we got to bake some halloween cookies!

right now i'm in the process of figuring out packaging for a project i'm working on. i really want to experiment with some moss. is that weird? maybe so. but i think it might actually turn out kind of cool. we also made some halloween sugar cookies today, i'll post a picture tomorrow, they're too cute. oh and one more thing, my brother sent me this today. sigh.

i wanted to share what i've thrifted in the past month with you guys. i picked up the ww2 ammo box at the antique street faire last month for five bucks, i'm in love with it. the letterpress drawer was my moms and she asked if i wanted it, free stuff is the best. the two swing top beer bottles were a quarter a piece, they still smell like beer. the heavy mold pans in the back were from solvang for two dollars each. and lastly the authentic poncho. i thought it was a rug when i saw it and i knew i wanted to make pillows out of it. just needs to be cleaned before i get to sewing. it was two dollars. so in total everything pictured only cost me $11.50. isn't that amazing? what have you guys picked up at the thrift recently?

although it's fall and rainy outside, i thought i'd show you a small portion of this summers harvest. the zucchini were a plenty, we even froze a few gallon size bags. there wasn't as much yellow squash but they were delicious. i'm guessing we grew about 10 pounds of green beans, next year i'll take better notes. the peas were skimpy, which is a shame because they were so yummy, raw and cooked. and lastly the tomatoes. they were on the smaller side but so, so incredibly tasty. nothing beats a homegrown tomato. we had nothing left to preserve. next year we'll plant many more and different varieties. now i just need to acquire a nice piece of land.

yesterday me and my sister went plant shopping. i was so excited to spot small aloe vera plants in the back corner of the shop. i've been wanting one for so long but just never got around to it. it's sitting on our kitchen windowsill for now, hopefully i won't kill it. what kind of indoor plants do you guys have? i want to fill the house with more. i hope everyone has a great weekend!

my current obsession is with goats. i want goats. i need goats. they're cute and sweet. and they produce goats milk. which makes goats cheese. which makes me one happy girl. these were taken with my pentax in august when we visited solvang for the day. their pen is on the side of an organic produce stand. i miss them. i think i need to pay them a visit soon, maybe even learn their names.

well that's the last of the tomatoes and zucchini! i picked what was left before i pulled the plants up. we want to try out a winter garden so we're getting the soil ready. it's still so warm here in southern california so i'm not too worried about planting late. we'd like to grow some different types of lettuces, broccoli, carrots, and a couple others.
