Sunday Seven!

This week's Sunday Seven is from Mod Cloth! It was difficult for  me to just pick 7! I LOVE their stuff!
These socks are beautiful!

What is with my fascination with umbrellas? This is so adorable & I would SO rock this on my college campus. :)

This is such a cute way to organize your keys! & You get to take the birdie with you! :)

This necklace is amazing!! Not only is it a retro phone, but it has a working clock inside of it!! (Another one of my strange obsessions, clocks in jewelry)

Soooo cute! I love the retro colors!

Pocket Watches! :) I NEED this scarf!

This umbrella is gorgeous. It's perfect for a sunny day with my camera :)

Vacation & Blog Contest!

Shelburne Museum was AMAZING. I took so many beautiful photographs & only wish I could have stayed longer, but I was holding up the rest of my family by stopping to photograph everything :)
Although I took hundreds of photos, it would be insane to show them ALL to you, so here are my select favorites:
The BEAUTIFUL Shelburne Museum :)

This lighthouse is also a museum as well as every building on the property.

One of the museums had old-barber shop exhibit. Sweeney Todd would've gone nuts!

The Dutten House (according to GhostHunters) is supposedly haunted....

...Yet the only thing I found was this drool-worthy dining room!

I took this to show not only the gorgeous paint colors, but the hanging golden tooth in the next gallery. :)

They had a pond! (That I took tons of photos of)

A Beautiful Boat! It felt like we were on the Titanic...before it sank, of course.

Look at the inside!! Marvelous! :) & VERY similar to the Titanic right?

The 50s HOUSE!
This whole house is decorated & furnished just like a home straight guessed it...the 50s!
The best part is, its not a museum! You can sit on the couch, look through the drawers in the kids room, search the kitchen cabinets, literally every drawer & closet is filled like it was a lived in 50s home!
This is a dreamy kitchen, is it not? :)

They had a sewing room! With an authentic 50s Singer Sewing Machine!

How adorable is this? They even stocked the fridge with vintage bottles! :)

*Whew* That was quite a lot of photos! 

We also visited the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. Sooo much fun! Highly recommend if you visit VT, to go! 

SO about this contest...

The Dainty Squid is having an AMAZING contest where you could win something from Ark's Endeavors. (They sell awesome jewelry & plugs on etsy!) All you have to do, is tell Kaylah what your favorite item for sale is, and *ding* you're entered! 
Good Luck!

Vacation! :)

I now have TWO followers! Woooo! :)
Quick Update: I'm currently in the beautiful mountains of Vermont & anxiously waiting for the start of the new school year. I've got some free time, so here's a nice photo-dump of some pictures I've taken while in Vermont the past 2 days.

The condo had a Mr. Potato Head Memory Game! :O  Amazing.
(There was even a little 'Beatle' Potato with a bowl hair cut & guitar)
Ben & Jerry's has the same motto I do :)

I LOVE the Five & Dime Stores around here! 
Aren't these the most adorable dog treats? I'd get them...if I had a dog.
A hot air balloon, seen from the view on our balcony! :)

Cabot Cheese Factory! :)
That's it for today, tomorrow we're heading over to Shelburne Museum, the perfect place for aspiring photographers :) 
& I'm getting (another) new cell phone. I had gotten the Samsung Intensity II on Friday, & it already broke yesterday. (Not my fault!) It won't power on properly, so Verizon is giving me a new phone. *Whew* 
More pictures tomorrow!

Etsy Favorites!

This won't be long, I have LOTS of cleaning to do before the big move to college!!

I LOVE this Vintage Owl Watch Necklace!

This necklace is AMAZING. My favorite actor in an awesome necklace now? What could be better?

I don't know why, but I love salt & pepper shakers.  & I just have to add these to my collection! :)

Well thats all for now. I have a thrifting extravaganza planned for Tuesday, which I hope is a "great success" :)

Animal Shelter!

I haven't posted in a few days. Mostly because I've been spending extra time volunteering before I leave for college. I did make another adorable cookie key chain today for my friend, no time for pictures though, seeing that she snatched it up so fast!

I did, however, take tons of photos of all my adorable friends at the shelter. (Which, if you live locally, you can volunteer, too! If not, you can help by donating! Their information is here.


This little guy looks exactly like my cat Spunky
Doesn't he??

Here's an irresistible kitten with fluffy whiskers :)

Mama & her 2 cute kittens :) They LOVE each other so much!!

& Heres one of our kitties in Main Cat Room. Very friendly!

I also baked over 50 cupcakes on Saturday for the Humane Society bake sale. I was so busy that I didn't have a chance to take any photos. I made Double Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes & a batch of regular vanilla & regular chocolate. The vegan cupcakes were DELICIOUS!! Definitely better than the regular chocolate. I will certainly make them again. My picky younger brother loved them as well.

Tomorrow I'm getting a hair cut & I might stop by Savers to do some thrifting, I'll have to see if I have time!
