Photo Shoot at Mindfull Books and Ephemera

After waking up this morning to freezing rain I said THAT'S IT!  
I'm going to go to the most interesting warm and cozy place I know and I will take my Mountain Girl pics inside...
Luckily the most interesting place i know is less then a 10 minute drive from my house...well...15 if you count the Volvo trudging behind many plows through the mucky mess in the roads..
I went to Mindfull Books and Ephemera  and the owner John(he runs it with his amazing wife Martha) was wonderful and allowed us to do our shoot there...with some really tasty coffee!
My beautiful friend Heather Miller created this hand painted sign and has many more amazing paintings inside as well!
You can see some more of her work here at Heady Art Works 
Mindfull Books and Ephemera is a community shop with a cozy bohemian atmosphere(perfect for Mountain Girl!), where you can sip a cup of java(or tea if that's your thing) surrounded by used and vintage books, paper, art, collectibles, music and gorgeous bright colors adorning the walls!
PS. even the toilet seat cover is multicolor in pink tones, I almost died when I first saw it and have been searching high and low for my own since
sigh...I have no life. 

Here are some pictures we took this morning(items to be posted this afternoon!):

If you are local (around the Southern  NH Area) sure to check out Mindfull's frequent Psychic Fairs including tea leaf readings and hand readings...I love it!

Perfectly Paired Outfit Monday

Hello!  I am so in love with many shops on Etsy but I do have a few all time favorites..I decided it would be fun to combine them all by picking an item from each to create this Monday's "Perfecrtly Paired Outfit"....
Lets start from the ground up:
 Vintage 70s Floral Gingham Patchwork Moccasins..
I love these and Im tempted to buy then
They are from ViralThreads 
and thes amazing leggings by ComaAndCotton: 
and for some extra warmth I'd have to wear a pair of MGC legwarmers 
I had a little trouble picking out a top for this outfit but I KNEW I found it when I browsed through HerbanDevi's handmade clothing! ...yes please!
 last but not least I would wear it all topped off with this amazing necklace from VioletBella and this hat from SwakDesigns..

Post a link to a piece that you would put with this outfit..I want to know!

Here is my new banner to celebrate the NEW spring clothing I have coming!
Do you like it? Let me know please...
Also....Im happy to let everyone know about a 20% off ENTIRE purchase sale going on at Mountain Girl right now! There are some great new dresses and tops in the shop.
This sale is for all my customers who can't wait to burst out of their winter blues shell!
It was 60 degrees today in NH and I really wanted to spread that warmth to everyone else!

I'm having one of those days where I am a bit ashamed of going to get my hair done...has anyone else ever felt like that? 
I KNOW I needed it trimmed(OKAY and highlighted)..but part of me wanted to call and cancel the appointment so I could save the's still so hard to spend money on MYSELF, is that just part of being a woman...does it ever go away?
...does anyone else ever feel that way? mom sent me this video and it cheered me up from my post salon hangover guilt fest.
This is probably the BEST and funniest video I've seen in a long time....Sangria anyone?

Buffalo Wings, A Beer and Listing New Items!

I am happy to report that I am listening to music, happily eating a few buffalo wings AND I have also opened up a Long Trail beer to sip on intermittently while I list all these NEW gorgeous fun items today...check out the pictures below....

I've been thinking about Mountain Girl and my life goals A LOT bad thoughts..just more hopes and dreams sifting through my mind...
I sometimes wish I had my "insert bad word here" more together.  
But I know this is all a long but lovely learning process. Learning how to manage money, supplies, shipping, and taking care of getting my creations out there are all part of this big process.
I appreciate you all for sticking by while I learn, sometimes the hard way, on my  own =)

I didn't always know that this would be how I made my living but I am so happy it is.
I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend...for those of you in the cold...stay warm! And for those of you in the warm weather.....well..I'm just jealous!
