I'm leaving in a Trailblazer...

All day I have had the lyrics "I'm leaving on a jet plane..." humming along long long in my brain as I prepare to skip town with my sweetie. Of course I am leaving in a Trailblazer, but that is just a minor detail...

Things have been a roller coaster around here today- trying to get the car serviced, the kids packed and delivered, work done/prepped/planned, bills paid, Nathan to the doctor so he can get some good drugs and be well on this trip etc etc... And now it is 3PM and I still have to go by the accountants get my sales tax form to mail, get 2 custom banners packed and mailed, 2 Storia VINTAGE orders packed and mailed, myself packed and mailed... Oh, wait I just have to pack me. No mailing needed... Just packed and loaded. Sigh...
But even though things are frantic, things also have been good. Nathan did get all kinds of good drugs and should be healed up by tomorrow, Jeanetta came over and helped me with several projects and saved my bacon, and for that I am super appreciative of!

So to Iowa we are headed... We are going to push as far through Missouri as we can tonight. Then we will stop, rest and get up and drive to Centerville for sound check tomorrow at 10AM. Did I not mention that Nathan has a gig? Yes, that is the whole catalyst for this trip. My sweet man has a gig with this fella tomorrow night in Iowa, so we turned it into an excuse for us to take a birthday trip (his is today, mine is Saturday) through next Wednesday. So we are off in about 4 hours and there is still plenty to do to get ready... But I keep telling myself that I can sleep, and rest and slooooooow dooooowwn when we get there....Oh, sweet, sweet vacation.

These pics are of the kind of outfit I wished I was wearing on this fall adventure. I don't think it will get cold enough for the velvet scarf, but I will absolutely have my jean jacket on hand, plus some cute aprons!

I made the leaf brooch using a pre-cut out leaf and some vintage buttons. I think it is super cute and plan on putting some in the shoppes when I return...

I guess the time has come to bid you adieu for now my sweet Internet pals, and hopefully when I return I will have lots of great pictures and treasures to show you, and I know I will have lots of reading to do to catch up with all of you!

Till then,

Many Happy Returns,


  1. Have a wonderful time.
    Can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. Happy, Happy birthday, happy, happy holiday and I love the costume, the brooch and the red bag! Blessings xo

  7. Hope you're having a wonderful time Jerusalem. Can't wait to hear all about the "gig" and your impressions of our fair state!


  8. Hope you are having the Time of Your Life. Miss your posts but will be so excited to hear all about it and see your pictures. We are leaving tommorow for the coast and a little R&R. It will be the first vacation we've had this year. I am so excited I am afraid I won't be able to go to sleep tonight

  9. Love, love, love your jean jacket...mind telling me the brand name? I have been forever looking for a new one and I love the cut of yours!

  10. Hi Pam!
    Hope you get this - you didn't leave me any contact info... Anyway the jean jacket is a size L and is the brand AMI. It is a few years old. I have 2 others that I wear a lot more, so if you think it would fit you let me know!

    I always visit your site, but this is my first comment. I LOVE THAT OUTFIT! It is so cute, the way everything is put together. That's just the style I'm going for, but don't think I *hit* very often, you know? Too cute! Thank you for the inspiration, not only the outfit, but everything on your blog!


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
