Vintage skirts are perfect for Fall...

I love vintage mid calf skirts for Fall! The weather is perfect for layering with tights & boots!

I am wearing one of my FAVORITE skirts ever!

What I am wearing..vintage skirt from Picture day vintage, my sweater is from the kids clearance rack at Target.. Shh! It's our secret! ;) My boots are from Target & grey sweater tights.. I have had them forever.

Here are a few pretty Fall skirts that I have at my shop.. I love this pumpkin colored pleated skirt!

& wool plaid skirts have been a favorite of mine forever!!

I LOVE this corduroy skirt! Corduroy anything might be one of my favorite things in the whole world!

I also brought in these cute vintage Halloween coasters! They were in the original sealed packages but I pulled them out & repackaged them! They would be soooo cute for any Halloween themed get together! There is 12 in a set!

My shop hours are 11-5 today! I have soooo many new things & I will be bringing in lots of new vintage yet this week or early next.

Have a great day!!

Just a few things.....

My friend Jess just sent some really cute lil' magnets for my shop! I love the vintage toy iron I found to display them on.

Halloween is right around the corner & I have some really cute soaps in like this little ghost! I also have witches, bats, skulls & pumpkins! They make great hostess gifts & would look so festive displayed in a guest bathroom! Misha's soaps are amazing! You have to stop by & grab one before they are gone!!

I also made a few more button hair pins. A few are vintage! They make great gifts!!

The shop is open until 6 today.. don't forget our new Fall hours!

ADORABLE glitter workshop bracelets!

I have had such a busy last couple of weeks! I finally feel like I can catch my breath & that I am somewhat caught up! I even found some time to visit my friend Kim's apple orchard near Poynette! I forgot my camera so I will have to blog about that sometime in the near future.

It is pretty close to Madison so I called up my friend Naomi of the glitter workshop & told her I was on my way! ;) I bribed her with some coffee & she gave me lots of pretty bracelets for the shop!

She even restocked the storybook bracelets! I have lots to choose from but they go fast!

& did you see the NEW shop hours!
