owl in the oak tree

   Hello perfect spring weather, and (an almost) hello to the end of finals for this semester. Student life has been occupying all of my time, with the copious amount of studying and my odd final schedules. I couldn't be happier that this Saturday, I really didn't do ever much during the day. I was honestly exhausted. After the mid-week, I will be completely finished with finals and ready for my mini-summer break (before starting summer courses).  
   Since last weekend I found such steals from garage sales, I couldn't pass up the signs I am seeing all over my area for yard sales. I snatched up many Nancy Drew books and almost bought a rocking chair (it didn't fit in my tiny Kia though!). I could imagine myself rocking in that chair with a good read on my front porch for hours, but there are still many months left of lovely weather to find one...with riding in the right sized vehicle.


  1. I have that same purse but it was either advertised as a fox or maybe a baby deer? It definitely doesn't look like an owl in my opinion.

    1. oh, it does kind of look like a fox too! but, i got it from here and it was labeled as "owl"!

  2. Your bag is adorable!


  3. I saw that bag featured in one of SprinkleOfGlitter's videos and I'm in love with it - so adorable!
    Also, your dress is really nice!

  4. Such a cute bag! Really like your printed top and skirt too - thought it was a dress at first until I read your notes under the photos :)

  5. I love your little owl bag :) it's very sweet x

  6. The owl bag is so adorable. And I really like the floral print on that dress. And I have to agree garage sales are the best!
