Consignment Awesomeness

As for the title, just wanted to call it like it is...I love garage sales, consignment galleries, thrift stores, 2nd hand shops, antique malls, etc.  (as mentioned here). Unfortunately for me, the options in the Manchester area are limited but I happened to stop by Sharon Ann's Consignment Gallery in Hooksett yesterday and absolutely fell in love with this beauty:

Upon first glance it may not look like much...but if you look closer you'll see that it's miniature!  Not as in doll house but as in perfect-for-32 inch-Genevieve size.  It's the most adorable thing.  ever.  I want it.  I need it.  I have to have it.  BUT there's this stupid budget thing that both Joe and Dave Ramsey keep ramming down my throat so I can't have it right now.  But as God is my witness I plan to stalk that consignment store until I can work $99 into the budget OR until it's marked down ($99 is a bit steep if you ask me!).  Whichever comes first.  Hopefully my patience will pay off like it did this time...because this cute little desk is just dying to be painted pink or bright red or stark white or sunny yellow and screaming for some anthropolgie-esqe knobs.  And I am so the one to give it what it wants. 

Ok, now that that's off my chest...

TomKat Giveaway

You all know how I love party planning inspiration...and pretty things.  Well The TomKat Studio has oodles of both.  Every Friday they do giveaways and I wanted to share this one because A) It's awesome B) There is a coupon code to go along with it (so everyone's a winner!) and C) it's just in time for Easter!! (But hurry because it ends at midnight tomorrow!).

TomKat is giving away $100 shopping credit for Banner Boutique on etsy.  If you don't know about Banner Boutique, what's wrong with you?  Ok, just kidding.  But if you have a little girl (or if you are one), you will love the beautiful floral headbands Banner Boutique offers.  And what better way to accessorize that adorable Easter dress you're planning to don her in?!  While there are tons of headbands on etsy, I have to say, Banner Boutique's are so beautiful, made with such quality, and come in such adorable packaging (what can I say? I'm a sucker for marketing), that they typically are head and shoulders above the rest.  or should I say headband and shoulders above the rest.  Oh my gosh.  I kill me.  Anyway, head over to TomKat for the details and coupon code and take a look-ie at Banner here.  Here are some of my faves! and by the way, you can see the adorable Gracie wearing one in this post.

Marc. Marc Jacobs, that is.

So remember my swimsuit dilemma I posted about here. And the AH-mazing swimsuit my bff scored for $40 at TJ Maxx that evoked a deep sense of envy?! Well (drum roll please), my patience and persistence paid off just like mama said it would. Guess who scored this beauty for less than $50 on a little thing I like to call eBay?!

Just had to share my oh-so-happy and delicious news.
Now I just have to book that vacation...
