1 for me, 1 for you

Today the hubs and I went to the dentist and both got bad news...that's what we get for not going for 5 years. I need two crowns and the hubs needs crowns and 2 root canals...ugh...so look for a sale soon. To cheer myself up I did some 2nd hand shopping. I found 1 thing I've been looking for and something for the shop too.
A large jewelry box that I've been looking for, for a reasonable price and a beautiful cherry blossom vase for the shop. So gorgeous!

YAY very excited for my new jewelry box...and that vase...I almost kept it.

"Springtime picnic" little girl's smocked gingham dress

70s winnie the pooh nautical spring/summer jacket
