the county line













(tote: Two Tickets, everything else is either vintage or thrifted.) 

   I welcomed Labor Day weekend in a very cliche way, with a little once-a-year carnival. I could not pass up stopping by Santa-Cali-Gon Days in the Independence Square, even though it was well over 100 degrees and I was just at a fair last weekend. There were so many hand-made crafts, food tents, antique stores open, and gift shops. I love this festival because it is by far the largest in the Kansas City suburban area, or so I have discovered yet. 
   I was jumping with joy when we discovered a old fashioned soda fountain on the square while browsing craft tents. I ordered a cream soda from Clinton's and it did the trick for the warm weather. My favorite antique store I visited was Serendipity and bought a few vintage photographs, although I really wanted this Victorian top hat, but of course out of my spending range. This afternoon was a wonderful start to my three-day weekend, which I am indeed deserving of needing after all of my back-to-school shenanigans and lack of sleep. Here's to the end of summer, and the few days of relaxation ahead of me.

  12. I skipped through your blog a little and I saw the tattoos of the world/maps outlined on your feet? I assume it was a tattoo so apologies if I'm wrong but it looks really cool. I also love your blog header and you're so cute and quirky! You have an awesome wardrobe.
