It's Just a Perfect Day!

Yesterday was a great day. I went shopping with my brothers and got four awesome things.

This was me
 
First up:

A few days ago I saw this post on vintage postcards of movie stars homes and I thought, that would be cool to collect! I went to an antique store by my house yesterday, noticed a postcard carousel, and immediately found this cool postcard featuring Bob Hope and his house! He's one of my favorite actors too!


As we were about to leave, my brother spotted something on the back wall of the store. It was a 1962 Barbie Dream House for only $45!!!! And it's only missing three records and a drawer!! If it would have been the Barbie Campus or Little Theatre I would have had a heart attack, but this was awesome too!!

Then we stopped at my friend's coffee shop. I was looking at some books they had on a shelf and they told me they were free. Suddenly I spotted this book:


I snatched it up quick!

The last great find of the day was when we swung by Walmart on our way home. I walked down the shoe aisle, which I never do, and spotted a pair of...

RUBY SLIPPERS!!!!
It was the last pair, they were on sale for $3, regular $14, and they were in my size!!!! (True, it was a girls size 5 but I wear an adult size 6 so it was perfect.) And they actually look like the ones in The Wizard of Oz. I've wanted a pair ever since I was little!! Judy Garland was to me what Elsa from Frozen is to the girls nowadays. I collect Wizard of Oz memorabilia (lunch boxes, posters, ornaments, etc) - I even have a stuffed animal of Toto!!

So yeah... it was a pretty epic day :)
