i feel like i am in the west bottoms almost every saturday lately. but, there is no way i would miss out on the first saturday of the month here. there is always such a huge selection of vintage shops, food trucks, and flee market outside stands to see and be inspired from! i always feel bad going into a vintage store and not buying anything.. but soaking up their inspiration! i actually ended up not spending a dime today, which is so unlike me (i always find something i want at any vintage store!). the whole time i was in these different shops, i was just thinking about creating my own items at home. i noticed myself, in one vintage store, being in love with a vintage baby nursery section.. which i did not even know it was a nursery section! i just adore pastel colors and cute things, and i just wanted to buy it all for my own place.
i also went to case park, in the quality hill district in kansas city, for a wonderful view of the industrial part of the city. i had completely forgotten about that park, and i have not been there since i was younger. i just went through old pictures i have saved and there is one of me sitting on the ledge as i am doing here. it is so interesting to see how much you have changed over the years.
