Hey folks!

I thought I would let you all know, for those of you who are interested, that I have started a new blog called Thrifty Alterations. Who can't use a little knowledge on thrifting and how to change those maybe not so great clothes into something Anthropologie worthy.

Anyway, come on over if you are interested!

Hey Everyone,

I have done some thinking, and I am not sure I can continue this blog. I haven't received the number of followers I was hoping to by this point, and I think maybe what I have may not be relevant. For this reason, I am done writing for good.

Thank you to all the readers that were supportive and left comments, you guys kept me going this long.

As for the TWO people that put in for the Hint of Vintage Giveaway, Because there were only TWO of you, I will just give you both $15.00 gift cards for Hint of Vintage. If you just email me at, I can give you the code for the online gift card. And thanks for actually entering for the giveaway  :)

AHOY Mateys

I know... with a title like that I should be posting something like a sailor outfit, or something sea worthy. I wish it was something as jolly as that.

I have been so stressed between being a mother, a wife, a Young Women's leader, a medical transcriptionist, formatting files as an independent contractor, cleaning house for a one very special Mr. Wiltse, and of course keeping up with Hint of Vintage.

It is for this reason, that I am going to have to put blogging on hold for a little while. I might add the occasional outfit on here randomly, if I have some down time.

Mostly I am going to get ready for The Girlie Show in OKC, in case I am accepted (please please please), and stock up on awesome vintage goodies to alter and sell. If not, my Hint of Vintage shop will fill up real quick :)

After this crazy summer with weddings, vacations, boutiques, and all the other stuff I listed off on top of that, I might have time again to blog and enjoy doing it.

Thank you to all those who read, and comment. I really appreciated every comment and follower because I felt like I might actually have given someone inspiration with their wardrobe :) I may not know you, but all those comments meant a lot to me.

I will hopefully see you seen.

Recognize the background? Yep, bet you missed the same old backyard in every picture. Well lucky for you I am back home and you will get to see lots....and lots...and...well, let's just say my photographer is free as long as he doesn't have to go anywhere else :)

{shorts: made them, shirt: target, shoes: thrifted}

This is my happy face, because I am so excited to be with my man again. 3 weeks was way too long to be away from him, even though it did seem to go by really fast with all the fun activities at my parent's house. Lucky I get to see them again in a couple of weeks for the wedding, but this time Matti gets to come too so I won't have to be missing him :) Happy Friday everyone!!

{Thrifty Thursday} Share Your Treasure!!

I have to say, I was a little jealous of this Thrifty treasure that Fern and Dandy shared last Thursday. Isn't that the BEST blazer ever? Yeah, gray and beige might be my favorite right now. They are much softer than the harsh black :)

So, now it is time to share your treasures again!

Remember to put the "Thrifty Chica button on the SIDE SCROLL of your blog so that your image is not deleted!

Picnic type days

I love really nice, sunny but cool days. The kind I can only find here in Utah, because Oklahoma does NOT get this cool during the summer :)  (but you can't beat the warm winters, that's for sure!).

And, apparently, I also love wearing blue shirts with these pants, because I think this is about the hundredth time I have paired a blue shirt with these pants. Aw well, when you find something that works, go with it!

{shirt: Walmart, Pants: thrifted F21, shoes: Hancock's, cami: F21, purse: thrifted}

I apparently also love swinging with Link, much more than he likes it :)
