Sadie, Sadie

Every time I log in to post, I realize how much time I have neglected to write and capture a more personalized post. Why, other than being terrified to bore you all,  because I am usually swamped with photographing new items, etsy, buying and hunting for more vintage, etc... Now I have a really good excuse I swear!! I've been  prepping for a store front, that's right Chicago, I am finally getting the brick & mortar of my dreams! More details to come within the next couple weeks,  but what I can tell you is that it will be with 2 people I love, my fiery ginger bff Merl Kinzie & my mustachioed fiance Mike. Oh did I not mention the other reason I've been so busy?? I GOT ENGAGED!!

Mike surprised me last Wednesday at the beach & proposed to me. It was the most relaxing & gorgeous day. Spent laying in the sun, stuffing our faces with fruit salad, making fun of practically everything [including each other], and BAM! There was an antique ringbox with a gorgeous 1890s Garnet & Sea Pearl ring inside waiting for me. It was a chill, non-dramatic moment with my best friend. So duh, I said yes. I am so excited for the things to come!! And I plan on draggin' ya'll along for the ride:) 

Before the big moment... & then...
The most perfect engagement ring.

I still am in shock that I got the best friend I didn't know I could love so much. 

Okay, okay, enough of mush!! Don't wanna show ya'll my non-robot side too much;) 
ON TO THE VINTAGE!!!

Here's what's new in the ol' shop!

Congratulations! Please say that you'll keep your etsy shop as well! I've bought a fair few things from there and it is one of my favourite etsy shops, especially because you regularly stock xsmall items!
