Kewpie Vacation

 Went on a day trip out of town. I took Kewpie for some documentation of the trip.
 We stopped at McDonald's for breakfast
 Highway shot
 Arrived in the town of our destination and used the bathrooms at The Bay.
 Picture of me downtown, with one of the many painted buildings
 Taken from the window of an antique store (Obviously a antique window too) *heheh*
Baby Carriage
 Awesome chair!
 Kewpie could not have been happier ..... he found some relatives. TOO BAD they were locked up in a glass case in the Salvation Army.
 Stopped in at Value Village
 Kewpie did a little rock climbing!
 I purchased this fringe dress from Value village
 Accessorized with Yellow and white Jewelry
 I just found these last week. They are one of my fave purchases of the year so far right next to Beatrice my carpet bag purse.
 Bought these for a 5'er on Saturday morning at a garage sale. A little more than I would have liked to spend... but I have been trying to not be a total cheapo! *hahaha*
Vaseline glass dish purchased from Salvation Army.
It has been a month since my last post. The reasoning is because of work.
One of stores we clean was supposed to switch over to Spring hours at the beginning of April. And it STILL HAS NOT HAPPENED YET. I was so looking forward to be able to clean a little less and have a bit more time for my hobbies. It can't be much longer before we get the go ahead. I mean Spring did start here on March 20 "WHAT'S THE FREAKIN HOLD UP?"


  1. Oh it does make me happy to see a post from you, Melanie! And I enjoyed going on your trip with you and Kewpie - is he a BOY? I never knew, I assumed all Kewpies were girls. I've learnt something.
    So back to the shopping - cute fringe-y frock, amazing candlesticks, and I can never resist vintage coloured glassware...
    I hope Kewpie was OK with the naked rock climbing (I was going to make some terrible joke here about tackle but I'll refrain).
    And I hope your working hours reduce a wee bit so we can hear from you more often, Mrs Coco - I miss you!
    PS. You look super gorgeous in that first photo! xxxxxx

  2. I liked the little trip. I have a special place in my heart for vaseline glass too. That work stuff getting in the way of blogging. I can relate.
