Leading off the day's post with an image from the 1959 Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Cook Book. I have an interview on St. Paddy's Day with a State agency with some cachet. I'll be wearing the green! Thrift Shop happenings amounted to one visit for a little less than $28, that included a pair of sunny yellow clip-on earrings. A pot shelf/book shelf, some hardcover books and a Disney wine glass. A travel print tote with makeup bag and replacement lid for a small crock pot. A runner rug (badly snagged) that I will trim up and launder. A pair of Lucky Brand jeans and a purple Charter Club V-neck pullover. This pair of West Pac Japanese ceramic hand painted roosters were something to crow about! They are in great condition except for a little red paint loss. No chips and with a sand pebbly surface.

We are experiencing some wonderful March weather in Northern California. Just for kicks and giggles, I am linking up with Judith at The Style Crone for Hat-Attack-20 . Beyond the crook of my arm is my flower garden I have been preparing and you get a glimpse of Zipper, my dog. Linking with Patti at Notdeadyetstyle for Visible Monday. It must be the height of thrift shop season because I have found some OMG items that are keepers. This boho chic look is topped off with a San Diego Hat Co. wide-brimmed hat (retail), a Nancy K New York flare sleeve shirt and a blue velveteen Impressions maxi skirt. I splurged on these retail discounted L'Artiste slip-on sandals. The balance of my thrift shop finds were the lavendar NWT top, a Diane Von Furstenberg Silk Assets coat length jacket, a Hilo Hattie dress and a Coldwater Creek long sleeved shirt. After I have the coat dry cleaned, it will be featured with another thrift shop find of a Jones New York skirt.
