I am resurrecting an old post for my double header of Thrifty Thursday and Vintage Thingies Thursday because I'm just out of time and creativity to do a new one.
It's all OK though, because I AM the vintage "thingie" and the outfit I'm wearing was very thrifty, only costing a few dollars at our local Pamida.
You may think whatever I paid for it was WAY too much - - - but I loved it, "back in the day."
And let me just tell you - - - what you wear today will always look foolish tomorrow. Mark it down. It is a truism.
I originally ran this post on August 6, 2008.

I don't "do" facebook, but when I heard this photo of me had surfaced there, I stole it.
Yep that camp chick in the hat and shades is me "back in the day" when I was 40ish.
I was THIN.
And before you LAUGH at the hat - - - wearing that one, and others like it, is why my face doesn't look old and wrinkled today.
