One of my favorite finds this summer at a garage sale was this vintage paper mache Easter Egg. It is marked Made in Germany so likely pre-1973. I have always wanted one of these and nearly ordered one this Spring off Etsy where they go for an average of $10-20 pus shipping. I now officially have some Easter decorations (versus just boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations).

I am a bit of a minimalist and collect very few things. One thing I do collect are vintage and antique bottles. I paid a bit more than normal for this old Slingers Wine bottle but loved the cap and it is quite large - $5 at one of my favorite charity thrift stores.

Now onto the clothing purchased in August. My new part-time job is in an office setting but we are an internet based company so no general public comes to our offices. As a result, we can wear what we wish (within limits, my supervisor joked no hootchie bikinis lol). I prefer to wear nice casual tops with non-jean pants, as I don't wear jeans very often and don't feel comfortable wearing them there. In August I went on a mini-thrift store clothing shopping spree. All of the below came to a grand total of $22.37 for four shirts and two pairs of pants. It pays to shop thrift stores!

So those were my finds in August. Now I am going to have a very domestic weekend of cleaning house, cooking, doing some fall decorating with a few small pumpkins and a fall wreath that I have had for several years. Cheers!
