On Friday, my wonderful husband took a day off work to drive us around and my momma watched the kid so Daffny and I could shop all day. Pj didn't think he would enjoy playing chauffer but he and Daffny really enjoyed talking about New York, beer and how much fun he would have with her husband. Although Pj isn't into vintage, I have a sneaking suspicion that he even enjoyed the shopping aspect.
|Breakfast at Steak n Shake!|
We began shopping at Brenda Sue's in Warrenton, Missouri. Brenda Sue's is one of my favorite vintage shops and I knew she would have exactly what Daffny was looking for. I found a red purse, which has been on my list for two years as well as a pair of mustard gloves. Pj found a pair of goggles for his Dr. Horrible halloween costume.
For lunch, we went to Chick-fil-A which is like...the best fast food place ever!! Daffny doesn't have one near her house so we had to make a stop while she was in town.
We ventured out to the St Charles antique mall and shopped till the store closed. Here are some of my goodies....
|new brooches. The "Mother" brooch is a locket with 6 spaces for pics of my family. The lucite artist palette reminded me of my momma, who is an artist|
|new brown hat, black vintage rain boots and black peeptoe pumps|
|much desired mustard gloves and sweet pale blue gloves from Brenda Sue's. The palm brush is a vintage scrubby brush for cleaning up messy little boys|
We picked up the kids from mom's house and did a little shoot in the yard. We were losing light quickly so we did the best we could do with little sunlight. I adore this picture of her!
