I'm not going to miss it this week! *Frock on Friday*

Okay so I missed the last two Fridays.... But look I made it this week. *lol*

Here I am downtown a little up the road is one of the thrifts I frequent and that is where I was headed.

The frock I wore today was being a tad problematic. When I purchased it (Months back in a $5 bag sale) I noticed it missing a button on the wrist cuff. Then once washed and ready to be hung a button popped off the front. (*sigh*) I was too lazy at the time to re-sew it on so I kept it in safe keeping all the way up until today when I finally went to sew it back on.
The buttons are in sad shape.. apparently they are so old they have decided to crack all over the place. "No wonder they are just popping off."
I couldn't even sew the button on the dress with thread so I could wear it. I had to use EMBROIDERY THREAD to keep the darned thing on.
So on the list to buy is 9 good condition vintage buttons to help this lovely frock live many more years to come.
Here I am in the Mall! "Guess what?? Santa is coming TOMORROW!!!"
(No not to your house..... to the Malls in my town!)
I wanted a picture here because of the happy snowman behind me. *lol*
Didn't get no full dress pics while out.... *woops*
Here is some last minute in the house pictures so you can properly see this frock.

Jersey the Boxer says: "Momma has really lost it this time. She's a twirlin FOOL"

I kept warm all day with these grey leggings under my dress.

Did I split my seams dancing???

Jersey is bashful

I suppose you will never know... *heh*

I have had such a great week in the thrifting department.

On Wednesday I found myself a rather FABULOUS faux fur coat "VERY HAIRY" *laugh*

I also found a long vintage petticoat. "In very good condition"

Today I found two Mid Century Fat Lava jugs "That sounds sort of ... dirty doesn't it? I can assure you it's not.

Lastly I scored a vintage *whispers so Nelly can't hear* Wedding dress.

"I am not a wedding dress collector, this will be my first one other than my actual wedding dress I own. But it was included in a bag sale and I probably paid about 50 cents for it. There is NOOOO WAYYY I could have left it there. I will have to show you ladies some pics cause I can't pinpoint what decade it's from.
I will put my mannequin Galaxie in it.
