She Thrifted (and other skills)

option-deux

This is my friend Emily from Tomorrow Never Knows. She thrifted, well, pretty much everything except for the old F21 tank top. I can respect Emily, she gets up early on Saturdays and goes to church sales. That's dedication. Church sales are where the good vintage and the old ladies hang out, and both are pretty cool, if you ask me. 
And while I think Emily's thrift skills are admirable, it is her photography I like the most. I am always going to like peaking at wedding photography;  to check out what the bride is wearing and rate the groom on how uncomfortable he looks, but what I love most are the little snap shots of scenes we pass by everyday. I think I have looked at this NYC post of hers (also featured on FreshlyPressed! Whoa!!!) about 6 times and each time, I am amazed at her skill. Pictures like that make me want to be a photographer... but I already have enough hobbies. I've said it before, cat herding takes a lot of time and effort.

Awww I adore Emily! Nice seeing her featured! And, I, too, admire her photos...and her impossibly adorable mussed hair. Seriously, how can one be so cute all the time?

Yes, Emily is pretty awesome. Her photos are some of my fave. And the church sale items she finds are pretty sweet too!

Her photos are amazing!!!! I love the Chicago shots and to know that we were there like 2 years or so ago. She's awesome!!! I go to a church rummage sale as well and pretty much that is where I shop. Not only it is in our town, but all the prices are really cheap. Like cheap, cheap! :) I just went to one yesterday Friday and got up before 7 just so I could be there early and take my time sorting through racks without other people. Thrifting's awesome!!!!!
