Ultimate Thrifting Find-Vintage Jewelry

This post may contain affiliate links see disclosure in footer statement.

Good Morning dear readers,  I went on a thrifting hunt last week.  I visited the lovely Trinity thrift a local thrift shop for the church.  I can always find some lovely things in this shop.  Vintage Jewelry is one of my favourite things to find.  Growing up, I would read all kinds of books on vintage jewelry.  So when I saw this brooch in the shop and it was marked.  I knew I had to have it even though I was not familiar with the name.  The name of the designer was Hattie Carnegie. Did a little research when I got home.   Turns out I seem to gravitate to designers from the 1950's.  She was around when Coca Chanel was famous.  She was an immigrant from Austria in the early 1900's.  Started out working at Macy's in the hat department-hence the nickname Hattie.  Eventually opened her own shop and designed suits and all types of accessories for women. Her jewelry was made from plastics to metal.  I always like to refer to the designers of the fifties has making fakes look better then the real stuff of today.  Like to find out more check out the links at the bottom some really good books on the subject. Here's a picture of the brooch. It's so ugly its cute.

Sunday Selfie-Feeling Good

Good Morning my fur buddies,  its a good day and I'm feeling good.  Mom fed me my baby food last night and I had a good night.  There was no upset tummie episodes last night.  I want to thank all of you for all your good thoughts and healing prayers.  My mom is the best she put up with everyone's shenanigans.  Mom's day is coming up and everyone give their mom a furry hug and sloppy kitty kisses.  What are you doing for your mom this year.  I'm letting mom go to the movie place and I get cat sitted by the boys.  Don't know how that's going to go?





Check out the shop mom added this new item from yesterdays art post

Caturday Art-Snowshoe Pyschedelic Kitty

Good Morning dear readers,  We are participating in Athena Cat Goddess cat art hop.  It has been a crazy week.  I finally went back to the vet and it was not fun.  I did get my shots after I terrorized the techs.  Yes I bit someone, but I was scared and they understood that and didn't hold it against me.  I'm too cute to get mad at for very long.  Mom says I need to behave.  We still have a mystery.  I've vomited every Sunday for last 3 weeks and no one knows why?  I have to eat baby food tonight and see if I vomit tomorrow or not cross your fingers.  Mom finally tried a new photo program thanks to kitties blue for suggesting it. It's called dreamscope and its so cool.  So here's this weeks photo.  The first one was done in HDR on Picmonkey.  The second photo was done in dreamscope.






here's a link to my freebie that redbox sent me go get a movie this weekend for free.

National Independent Bookstore Day

Good Morning dear readers,  Saturday is going to be one of my favourite days of the year besides holidays.  It's National Independent Bookstore Day and what does that mean-SALES.  Lots and Lots of lovely books will be available for the taking.  My local independent store (Dimples) is having a B1G1F starting today through Sunday.  But I've been told this is a national event at all Indie stores.  So you need to check your stores to see what they're doing for the event.  Here's some tips to get the most bang for your buck.

1.  Bring trade books and get store credit to help get more books

2.  If they have a frequent buyer card i.e. stamp card when you have 10 stamps get free book up to $10.

3.  If you have swag bucks cash them in for bookstore or visa saves money.


4.  Take recycling in and get cash.

That's it for now enjoy your books.
