          what a week it has been!  we've had so much fun putting together these looks & shooting them around the lovely town of Windom.  morgan and i share so much of the same passion for not only vintage & thrifted clothing, but more importantly... the unlimited potential and sparkle found right here in small town america.  she and i both reside in the minneapolis / st. paul area during the school year and we've spent hours discussing the fact that the more we're in the city, the more our passion for small towns ignites itself.  it's so often that we look past the very thing that's right before our eyes in hopes of reaching higher, seeing something better, when all along, the thing that was there from the beginning is just what we need.

         one of our goals in this week long challenge was to explore the bountiful, and dare i say, cool/artsy/funky, resources found right here in our hometown.  this little town of ours has so much to offer our own community and the surrounding areas.  it's when we choose to take action and responsibility that the possibilities truly become unlimited.  we hope to have inspired you in some way or another this week.  your support has certainly done just that that for us!

         huge thanks to the Carpenter's Cupboard of Windom for letting us use their store as our closet for the week.  we had so much fun rummaging through all the goodness to be found in there! something to look forward to... the Carpenter's Cupboard & Antiques 86 are planning their second annual vintage fashion show scheduled for November 2nd at the BARC in Windom, MN.  last year was an absolute hoot and morgan and i will most definitely be making an appearance this year.  check out the Carpenter's Cupboard facebook page for more infomration.  { the Carpenter's Cupboard recently redid their facebook page and consequently, lost all their likes, etc.  so, please, stop on by the new and improved facebook page here and give it a like! } muchas gracias.

until next time (we're planning that next time as i type this), 

check out morgan's last post of the week over at Miss Morgan Leeshe's more adorable than ever...

ps, thanks for letting me borrow your hat, morg!
