My Heart


I’m posting this photo for Anna’s Much Love Monday Project. The heart-shaped platter and its accompanying tea-set were my first ever thrift finds photographed for internet display. They were the first two photos uploaded to my brand new flickr account on Valentines Day 2008 (I started this little blog just days later!).

My first stones cast, so to speak, into this virtual pond where almost two years later I‘ve had the great pleasure of meeting more amazing like-minded ladies than I ever knew existed, while becoming part of a community centered around a love of thrifting in all its forms. It’s a community I have grown to truly love being a part of.


Speaking of things I love! I shot this video on New Year's day as the three of us lazed about, enjoying a rainy day at home. Clover was wearing the most adorable vintage Jessica McClintock prairie skirt thrifted by our friend Laura Jane and given to her the night before at the party. The dress underneath, also a wonderful thrifted hand-me-down (one of many!) from my sister-in-law Isolde.

I love her sweet little voice. I love the way her whole being lights up when she gets excited about things, even little things like taking small slippered steps onto a rainy back porch : )

Such sweetness, like mama like daughter! I think it was fate, Missa, that I found your new blog right when I was starting mine. I've enjoyed it almost every day since!

Violet Folklore said...

How funny that you would post such sentiments Missa, as I have just posted this blog, which mentions you and which is basically saying the same thing!

Oh I can't wait to watch this movie, but I am at a coffee shop and forgot my headphones. Which is also bumming me out because, funny again, I had planned on posting a video of Mycelia on my blog tomorrow and wanted to go through and watch and listen to find the best one! Blog posting synchronicity.

I am so glad to have found a blog by someone who loves thrifting as much as I do and has and adorable little girl too! I have not found many thrift fashion blogs that include toddler styles as I do. I am new to the blogging thing but have started one recently. It is so fun.
