Henry Ford Museum & John Simmons BB show

My father is a professional bodybuilder and was guest posing last week at a bodybuilding show in Dearborn Michigan.  We decided to make a day trip out of it and went to the Henry Ford Museum before the show.  Have you been there before?  We were shocked on the diversity of items that are there!  Much more than just Ford cars!

The chair in which President Abraham Lincoln sat when
John Wilkes Booth shot him.

Could not imagine being a woman during those times!

A beautiful vintage townhouse doll house

The Rosa Parks bus

If only I could time travel to the 30's-70's that would be amazing

Vintage bra & makeup


My Dad & I after he guest posed.  Ill spare you those photos!

If you haven't been to the Henry Ford Museum I highly suggest it!  The price is affordable & there is plenty to do!  Starting this week a Titanic exhibit will be there until September!

nautical stripes & bright shoes

Dress, pin & gold bracelets: Vintage, White Bracelets: F21, Shoes: Target, Purse: The Limited, Earrings: c/o Poor Sparrow

This dress was meant for you.  Well not you specifically but for someone to buy out of my etsy shop.  Tuesday after work I tried on 7 dresses to model for the shop this beauty and another are staying with me.  The good thing is the others weren't my size or they would be staying as well.  The dangers of owning a small vintage clothing store: hoarding all of the items for yourself.  I found this dress and many other wonderful items at a estate sale last month.  This lady had 2 floors and a basement full of things.  By full I mean I had to climb under the clothes rack then push it forward to rescue this beauty because there were too many things.  I made 3 rounds through that house.  Left with 8 bags. 

What else is new?
My lovely friend & coworker has started to make shoe clips and I am selling them on my shop.  They are $12 and currently running a deal for free shipping.  They are super cute and made with love. Come back on Monday for shoe clip giveaway!!

Tomorrow I will be back for a post just for the return of Mad Men.

Jumping joy for 75 degree weather in March! Thank you Jesus! Jo thought she had to be seen in all of the photos! What a diva!

Cant wait for June!

pretty in pink

Tank: Old Navy, Skirt: F21, Chambray top, Shoes & Necklace: Target, Sunglasses: Dollar Tree

This outfit makes me feel beautiful.  And yes I have been living in those flats! Totally worth the $14 I paid for them!  I think I may need to add a few more maxi skirts to my closet.  They can be worn so many ways and can be dressed up or down. I hope you had a great Monday!
