I've been inspired... Kinfolk ♥

There is a magazine out called Kinfolk .

I must say I'm definitely obsessed!

I love the whole Idea of what they are all about!

Very inspired!

I found them through a post over at Prairie Seed a very sweet blog I must say!
With a lovely little Etsy shop.

This is their Manifesto....


MANIFESTO

Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love.
Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
I'm in love with all the little films they have, they are  all so beautifully done!

They also have a facebook page that has even more wonderfulness!

As the post from Prairie Seed said ..........A little beauty for the soul!

So if you haven't already discovered the magazine it's definitely worth a see!

Thriftin' Fun

 One thing I thought would be fun this new year was to spend a little more time thrifting
& putting together some fun outfits.
 First outing & I'm already hooked.
 I love that you can find some really pretty things and you are
saving loads on the budget & above all leading a more sustainable life style.
I have such a mixed style & I love so many looks from classic to romantic. I thought it would be fun to
find some of the looks that I like and search for a similar look.
Double-breasted Ivy blazer
Adorably cute J Crew style.
My first find!~ a classic look.....
 thrifted  Chaps Jacket...  3.00
 thrifted Merona shirt... 3.00

I found a wonderful little blog called Parsimonia  she is all about second hand shopping & lot's of pretty style, she also has an adorable little shop with  all her wonderful vintage finds.

Definitely worth a see!

May you have a wonderful day!

A little breather....
I hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start!
I'm loving these two little dishes I found at Ross.
Full of vintage fun!
Here's to new beginnings...
My mom got me this pretty little journal for Christmas to write down all my dreams, ideas, & passions in.
   A perfect start to this New Year!

For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await 
another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"
