Value Village vs Faux Pucci

Call me crazy but I love a great find after a marathon hunt. Lovely way to spend an afternoon

When I just think about thrift store shopping the hair on the back of my neck stands up

This is a new segment I will call "Value Village vs ......"

In this case: Pucci

Let me say this dress is not a Pucci....but does it get any closer to the real deal?

You be the judge, $2,000 vs $14.99

thrifted bow tie clutch as well

Summer Leisure

Was on my way out the other night and stopped for a Starbucks. Well, If I didn't come across a fun Farmers Market

I've always wanted to go to one of these....I know you say, "What! you've never been?" My hours of work are not conventional....needless to say I do miss out on weekend activities

The weather was fabulous and I found everyone on what I call Island time, casually milling around, eating, shopping and all in very good moods. Nice to mingle with the community

Fresh Kettle Corn, this guy had a constant lineup

Loved finding Golden Ears Cheese Crafters Ltd. They have a dairy farm and make their own cheese. Bought me some curd, reminded me of summers at the cottage and going to the cheese factory

These jellies made my mouth water thinking of Brie and crackers


Have a great day!

Harmony House "A Night Under The Big Top" an evening to support autism

What fun! Went with a great new friend of mine and her husband to a fundraiser for Harmony House.

The theme of course, a circus.

Trish and John with Bohdanna from Harmony House

This living room area was a nice comfy touch

OK, gotta say, this guy hit it out of the park with the hors d'oeuvres

Edible flowers

What! contains alcohol, yum

While I was pondering what on earth the orange covered bottles were in the basket on the right, I was told the finest champagne, there are two bottles in there!

All the tables had lips and mustaches for the Photo Booth
I think this one is drunk we went

This fella was a hit, snuck up on you and kissed you with these big fake lips, fake or not, I like to get kissed, tee hee
We did a little red carpet

Two happy and supportive Mothers of students at Harmony House

What a great idea for a parting gift, credit card holders with all the sponsor and donor cards inside, way to support them

Lovely way to spend an evening
