Film Noir Cat

My friend took this picture of her cat this morning. It's adorable and looks like it came straight out of a film noir movie, so I thought I'd post it.

Another 1960s Dress

One of my BFFs is in town, so we went out with a bunch of friends tonight. This was my outfit. I got the dress from etsy (I wish I could remember the seller) and I think the shoes are from Payless.

World's Longest Yardsale

Has everyone here heard about the World's Longest Yard Sale? I love that sort of thing, but I first heard about it two years ago.

What: It's a huge group of yard sales with everything from single families selling stuff to huge parking lots full of serious antique dealers and EVERYTHING in between.

When: It starts the first Thursday of every August and lasts for four days, through Sunday.

Where: All along route 127. It goes from Alabama to Ohio.

Seriously, if you can make it, GO! Here is the official website

I was able to go with a good friend, and her family about two years ago. We started in Alabama and made it part way through Tennessee. My best score was a 1950s hat, with a matching hat box. The little old lady that sold it to me was so happy that a "young gal" like me was interested in a hat like that. I sadly had to pass over tons of vintage furniture. The price was right, but I had no cheap/easy way of getting it home. There was an amazing 1960s (?) station wagon for sale that my heart still longs for. It was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. Go if you can. It's amazing!

1960s Paisley Dress

This was the best full length picture I could get of my outfit with my lack of: space, good lighting, and camera skills. The last two pictures show better detail of the pattern, my newly dyed red hair, and my favorite wiskered accessory
