Weekend Thrifting

Summer is a great time to get out and hit the weekend garage and tag sales, or peruse the antique and second hand shops in your area. Personally, I sometimes find it easier to check out etsy's vintage shops! Have a look...

We Could All Use a Little Indulgence

...and Elegant Rose Boutique is just the place to find some.  You could detox with some bath bombs,

restore some of the moisture that our summer heat has depleted,

or heal your senses with some aromatherapy.

Need a special gift for that special someone? Melissa can fix you up with specialty soaps  and gift sets for him or her.

Find all of this and more at Elegant Rose Boutique.

Hello Summer!

In Oregon, we say that summer doesn't begin until after the 4th of July, and that rings true just about every year. So, hello summer!

Step out into your summer day feeling fine in something sweet from melanie grace designs.  "Easy to wear, fun to pair. With loads of flair and savoir faire. Your new favorite outfit awaits you here!" 

And of course, you'll want some fun summer jewelry to go with that new melanie grace design...

A pair of fun, polkadot earrings from happyment, perhaps, or a porcelain ring from Niu Taller?

Don't forget the bag! Here's a nifty one from marbled.

You'll certainly want to be prepared for cool evenings, and this felted lace scarf from aurelia T will fit nicely in that roomy bag...

So what are you waiting for? Get out there!
