Thursday, December 2

I'm 2!



Yesterday was my second anniversary as an Etsy vintage seller, December 1st and the first day of snow. I was in a pretty good mood, so good I thought to pop a giant mustard bow atop my head. I really feel like I have reached a milestone hitting the two year mark. There was a time when I wasn't sure if this vintage selling endeavor would have any longevity, though I had obviously hoped it would, I was skeptical (or maybe that was just me protecting myself in case the whole of Dear Golden crumbled or something). But all that worry is long in the past and I feel wholly optimistic (and grateful) that I'll be immersed vintage for as far as I can see into the future (sort of a silly statement as I cannot see into the future, but you catch my drift). 

I spent the snowy day drinking decadent coffees, eating quiche and a bowl of mashed potatoes, taking a walk in the falling snow, AND going to a new antique mall where I found a little stash of 1940s platform heels in green, black and navy. The rest of day was spent working and I didn't mind a bit because I just LOVE this gig!
