found objects

This week, while tiding up and rearranging I decided to get rid of a vase of dried flowers I'd had in the house for ages. When I pitched the flowers in the compost out came a pair of my glasses I had been missing for about TWO years (at first I thought it was only one year, but it has actually been two!). I was so so excited, I had searched for them so many times. How they ended up in a vase (along with a measuring tape) I'll never know. The timing is pretty funny though as I recently ordered a new pair of glasses and they are due to arrive today. 

I also found a bin of my own summer clothes in the basement and in it was this super comfy dress. I'm so happy the house is coughing up things I have once loved and can love again!

I love the dress! It's pretty much the perfect dress for summer.

This is one of those mysteries that you'll probably wonder about for years to come. "Remember when I found my glasses in a vase of flowers?" Perhaps a child was playing hide and go seek? Love your striped dress!

Great dress and B/W or navy is back in style big time.

Maybe someone was using your glasses to read the tape measure and stashed both when they thought they were going to get caught?

I lurve this dress- I think I've been trying to buy a version of it for years at thrift stores!

I lost my glasses in January and only found them 3 months later IN THE EXACT PLACE I'D BEEN LOOKING for 3 moths...weird.
