All better and feeling goofy. Felt well enough yesterday to hit a couple of charity shops. Today, is windy, stormy, and gloomy

My new winter coat. It's 100% wool, from Jones of New York: $10
I love the pattern on this blouse. 100% silk: $1. It's a size 10, but I could use the fabric and make something new out of it.

Roxie's modeling a lovely straw hat:  $2. I'll have to add some loops to get this hat to stay on.

Here she is wearing a Help Me Helga hat. $2. This hat is so small it looks like a topknot on my head. But it jumped off the shelve into my cart, how could I not buy it? All this for just under $17, I know it adds up to $15, there's tax.

This cute dervish dancing person is from the second store

Yet another heart-shaped box. Plus 2 more weird dolls. All for under $6.


  1. Wonderful coat. I'd like to see you wear it with either of those fantastic new hats! The fabric on the blouse is definitely worth reworking into something. I'm glad you're better!!

  2. Love the patterned silk shirt - very Pucci! And a bargain at a dollar! And I agree - you couldn't have left that Help me Helga hat behind - it's lovely!

  3. Love that psychedelic blouse and that turban hat - I was admiring a very similar one in a vintage shop recently for £25! The scarf is gorgeous and the coat looks very posh!
    Hoorah to feeling human again. Sounds like we're sharing weather. x

  4. Great bargains, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  5. the coat looks rather classy. The blouse is gorgeous and I'm admiring both the hats

  6. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Good treasure hunting, those hats and the blouse are gorgeous. I don't know why anyone buys winter coats new, you can find such fabulous coats secondhand, excellent quality and a fraction of the retail price. xxxx
