As noted earlier, Patrick and I finally bought a car! Originally we had plans to take it to the drive-in this weekend, but rain prevented that from happening – maybe next weekend! However we still decided to go out for a nice country drive down Highway 99 to McMinnville (also known as Oregon’s wine country, though I couldn’t care less about wine), stopping at various antique shops and thrift stores along the way.
While I didn’t find much (seriously, I bought a purse, that was it), it was still a successful trip in getting us acquainted with our new car.
These photos have really convinced me I need to add darts to this Scully I thrifted when in Austin last year. I knew it was on the big side when I bought it, but the color was just too marvelous to pass up on, as it is my favorite! Meanwhile I’m finally brave enough (yes, I still struggle with wearing some things) to wear something I’ve wanted to add to my wardrobe for a few years now, string ties. They are wonderfully western, but also elegant in a way, and are an easy way to “dress up” a western outfit. I just got the saddle ring back from the jewelers, and it is one of the few things I bought during our trip to California last month. While it was pricey, I knew I’d be kicking myself if I didn’t buy it, and now it’s one of my favorite things to wear.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
