Hoarding.

      Hey lovelies! Right now I am stuck in a boring-storm! I blame it on my lovely boyfriend because he's working in Vancouver and I don't get to see him until mid-next week! Augh!
      Anyways, other than working and school and staring at my Tumblr dashboard into the wee hours of the morn, I haven't done much. Other than go thrifting! I think I have a problem. This is what I took home last time:
Actually, that's kind of a lie- the holster and the fold-out camera came from my oh-so-generous uncle! But the other stuff, clockwise from upper right, is: an old-school photography book, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and Think Pink on cassette (I saw a cool tutorial on how to turn cassettes into coin purses! I can't wait to try!), FernGully, a Kodak Ektralite 500, a vintage leather gun holster (needs some work, oh well! Still badass!), um a piece of my camera strap in the bottom corner, a really cute Garfield keychain, a very moldy Neil Young guitar songbook, and an Agfa Ventura 69! I don't know why, but I really adore old cameras.
Oh, I also picked up this framed poster:
     I think it's really neat! Apparently when my mom was a teenager in the 1970's she was a Greenpeace member. I am so jealous- I wish I could have grown up in the late 60's to early 70's!
     I also finally found the antiques store in my town. Oh. My. God. I think I experienced a thriftgasm. I was determined to not leave empty handed so I got this weird (yet cute) hat, apparently from the early 1950's:
      I totally dig the veil. It makes me feel mysterious. Unfortunately whenever I wear it my mom calls me "Aunt Lil" because apparently it is something that my great-aunt Lilian would have an interest in. My mom says that Aunt Lil was a bitch; I think she had great taste in hats.
      My cat seems rather unimpressed that there's loot all over her spot. Silly cat!
      Anyways, that's about all I can think about sharing for now. Actually, maybe I'll give you a couple songs to listen to today! I'm on a soft-rock bender right now, and ack! I just found out that Tom Petty is playing in Vancouver this summer- and we couldn't get tickets! My bff and her family did though. So jealous!
Pearl Jam - Harvest Moon
Tom Petty - Yer So Bad
Neil Young - Old Man
Counting Crows - Mr. Jones (AHAHA THE SINGER CAN NOT DANCE!)

  2. Haha I tried to stick it in there, but it doesn't really fit. I was thinking of sticking something like bubbles in the holster... or maybe air freshener, because it smells like a basement!
