|Please let me keep them!!|
|If this is environmentally-unsafe, knock me out cold.|
My favorite kind of being green is what I engaged in all morning. Now, I used to joke that the greenest thing I did was shop vintage. After watching a TED Talk (our newest way to waste away the day--if you haven't seen one, Netflix them. We're believers!) about reusable fashion as a environmentally conscious choice, I knew exactly how I'd be spending my Saturday morning. As if she read my mind, my friend Belva called to see if I wanted to hit up some yard sales this morning. Once I got past the shock of the 6am wake up call, I threw on some clothes and headed out the door, $100 cash in hand. After four hours of intense scouring, this is the damage.

Not too shabby. It looks like I'm well on my way to being the Green Goddess I want to be. Now, if I can just ignore that nagging voice telling me to jump in the car and run to Target...
