In the Library...






First I have to talk about the wonderful vintage dress I'm wearing. It comes all the way from Austria. I stumbled upon an ebay store called Bows & Bandits run by two girls named Eva and Sophie. Their store is filled with the most lovely vintage dresses, sweaters, boots, hats, and more. When I saw this dress I was instantly in love! When I received it in the mail it was even better then I'd expected. The dress is like new and fits like a dream! Needless to say I highly recommend checking out Bows & Bandits. Thanks girls!

Today Jonny and I took a Sunday drive. It had been snowing all morning so when we ventured out this afternoon it was a beautiful sight to see. Although it was absolutely freezing! I had hoped to take some pictures outside but couldn't bear the cold. We stopped by the library and I picked up some books that I can't wait to read. All biographies as you can see. I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! :o)

Darling photos - I love the library. I can't wait to go back to uni, the library at my campus smells like old books, I love getting lost in the stacks.

Lovely dress! I love visits to the library :) I'm currently reading Jane Powell's biography.

That's so cool you live in Maine! I love it there, but haven't been in a few years. We used to vacation there a lot when I was younger.

Lovely pictures! My favourite place to think and be in a libary. I like the smell of old books, and while reading I love picturing the woman or man who read it before me, and the day before that, and so on. I like to think of their opinion and thoughts.

These pictures reminds me of how I've always wanted to attend the libary - with a adorable vintage dress. The dress surely is adorable!
