Hey Vicky, It’s Your Birthday!

100_0563100_0334What can I say about my friend, Vicky. She is so hilarious. She can make me laugh more than just about anyone I know. And when I say laugh I mean the kind of laughter that makes your sides hurt, brings tears to your eyes (in a good way), and even makes you pee your pants a little (if you are over 50 you know what I mean!)

Another thing about Vicky is that she is unapologetically herself. And why wouldn’t she be? She is smart, kind, talented, funny, (I could go on and on), and of course she is FABULOUS in the most fabuless way.  I told you she was smart, and she knows she doesn’t have to spend a lot to look her best. Here are some examples of her looking gorgeous in her thrifted outfits.

Oh, and did I tell you she was fierce? Get this lady on the dance floor and watch out!  She owns it. She is also a fiercely loyal friend, wife, mother, grandmother. She loves with all her heart and everyone just has to love her back!

TGIF FUN VINTAGE VALENTINES

Awww, Valentine’s day is here and whether you are spending it with your special sweetheart, your family or your friends, (“Gal”entines or” Pal”entines), we hope that everyone will have FABULOUS day!

Now that we are older of course we celebrate Valentines day differently than we did in our early youth. Many of us now receive flowers, chocolates, jewelry or other gifts as tokens of affection. But who remembers  the days in elementary school when the class party consisted of decorating a shoebox with construction paper, glitter, crepe paper  and heart shaped doilies? Oh the excitement of opening that box and finding it filled with colorful valentines and if you were really lucky  the surprise of  lollipop shaped in a heart!  And perhaps, just perhaps that boy who sat in front of you that you had a crush on since the first day of school, had given you a special card…  Yes those days can bring back sweet memories.

And weren’t the cards back then just the best?  So just for fun we thought we would share some pictures of vintage valentines.   Could it be that these will remind you of some you may have received?  Or maybe you remember giving a similar one to a class mate? Let’s take a look and see…

This is one groovy valentine!

Remember the Do you like me, check yes or no, notes?

This is the one you would send to your special crush!

Love the play on words with this one.

Who wouldn’t want to pick a Cowboy for a Valentine!

For that Valentine who is out of this world.

These are just examples of some of the cards we thought we too adorable not to share.

Just out of curiosity, are any of you card savers? Do you keep birthday cards, friendship cards, valentines, etc. , in an old  box somewhere? If so maybe you should find it and take a look.  There just may be a long forgotten valentine hiding there.

So once again, we wish everyone and happy Valentine’s day and for all you thrifty gals, don’t forget,  those heart shaped boxes of candy will  go on sale on the 15th, and we all know there is nothing better than chocolate, except chocolate that is 1/2 price!half off candy

Till next time be thrifty and stay fabuless.

Love from Teresa valentine5

Motivational Monday

dontwaitHello fabuless fashionistas and welcome to a brand new week. We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and are now ready to take on Monday.

It is hard to believe that January is almost half way over! Time sure flies when you are trying to keep those New Years resolutions, huh? Speaking of resolutions, (and keeping them or not…), today I,  (this is Teresa) saw the above quote and it really resonated with me. I,  like many made some resolutions for 2020 and have been trying to keep my nose to the grindstone and work toward my goals. Have I been perfect at it? Absolutely not, but I am trying to keep the mindset of not giving up completely, just because of a bad day, or even two…

Most goals aren’t achieved in a day, many take time and effort and when results aren’t immediate we can become discouraged and potentially just give up.   But what would happen if we took time to be proud of ourselves along the way for trying. It seems that may help us to keep on track if we acknowledge the steps we have taken even if they are  small.

So don’t wait. Celebrate those steps . Celebrate the fact that you are attempting something that may help change your life for the better. Maybe by honoring the effort we make each day we will find it easier to reach our goals.

Till next time be thrifty and stay fabuless.

Love from Teresa and Vicky cropped-lipprint
