I made out like a thrifting bandit last week in South Dakota. I have piles of glorious fabric, some of it being vintage and way too cool. I also acquired several linen items on the cheap. My favorites are long matronly dresses and skirts. Thrifting linen is one of the best ways to get your hands on it without breaking the bank.

Check out this sheet:

Vintage Sheet

I love how it looks like water color!

I was uploading pictures of my favorite purchases, and several of them were "invalid files" or something. I love this flower one on top:

I also celebrated my second side ponytail Friday afternoon. Sometimes it's the only appropriate hairstyle.

Side Ponytail Friday Afternoon

My mom didn't notice until late in the evening. She then asked me if I knew my ponytail was crooked. It was, and it was on purpose. Feel free to participate next Friday afternoon.

I also thought you might appreciate a funny story. It was not so funny at the time, but it's funny to me now. On our way home on Sunday, Felix and I encountered this spectacle:

Cattle being herded down the road

Do you see what's going on here? I had to drive stop and go for around 30 minutes while a bunch of cowboys (cowpeople?) on horses drove a herd of cows down the road. When we were doing the going (as opposed to the stopping), we discovered that the speed of cow is approximately 5 miles per hour.

I have a question for my blog friends. If I wanted to share some etsy or flickr favorites, how do I go about using the pictures? Do you have to save them and upload them on your own? Do you always ask first?

Your SD thrifting is much better than mine! I can only ever find the "Southwest" style linens.
