turquoise belts at the pretty new thrift shop

while on my quest for something turquoise for today's true colors meme, I remembered the
turquoise monkey I photographed at the st. vincent de paul thrift shop last november. this prompted me to check out the pretty new thrift shop in farmingdale, where I found these very unique belts. note to self, thrift shops are great places to find the color turquoise!
and while we're on the subject, not too long after I posted those monkeys last november, much to my surprise, I happened upon
here where you can see one of my favorite supremely talented bakers who also happened to be inspired by those thrift shop monkeys as well. I thought you might enjoy checking it out, especially if you like cookies and the color turquoise.
and please, do go here as well for other turquoise inspirations thanks to blue over at true colors.

The belts were a great find.
I'm a real fan of charity shops as we call your thrift venues.

Followed the links and had to LOL @ the Turquoise monkey & the cookies - TY for including them.

Lily, I never wear belts. Maybe if I did, my waistline would be significantly smaller...? Thanks for the mention! I knew the instant I saw those monkeys here a while back, they would become cookies.
