spies like us

It occurred to me just the other day that this blog, Come Spy With Me, has lingered here without an update or proper wrap up in well over a year. What a shame. We sure do get a ton of daily traffic and lots of reposting on pinterest. I suppose I am not really one to leave things hanging so today I thought I would put up a proper last post since the truth of the matter is that it is highly unlikely that anymore of our fun and fabulous updates will be taking place here. Though you should never say never! After closing up our shop it has taken us grasshopper girls a good couple of years to recover and re-find ourselves and yes, we have moved on to better things.
This past year has found me happily traveling quite a bit starting with a visit to San Francisco in February, a jaunt to Estonia in June, two weeks in Italy in July, a long summer weekend in Long Beach Island, NJ and a recent journey to New York City to visit my dear gal, Miss Tracy. Amidst the to and fro I have been penning The Peregrine Papers and stocking a handmade and vintage shop Forged and Found.

Spring 2013 found Tracy leaving Philadelphia behind for a second time in her life. This time landing in Brooklyn with her two tiny dogs and boyfriend in tow and carving out a new life with many new adventures. She is feathering her stellar new nest, finding new friends and busy with work. October was an opportunity for the two of us to get get together and finally reconnect. Having NYC  and Brooklyn as our backdrop was so much fun. I can't wait to get back there.

Signing off for now friends!
Thanks for following and enjoying all of our curating.
It's been a blast...

adventures in thrifting

Yesterday Miss Tracy & I crossed the old Delaware in search of vintage goods and a decent lunch. Our mission lead us to the New Jersey superstore Village Thrift conveniently located across the road from the infamous Pub restaurant. Sadly the store was crammed with mostly finds from the 90's up to more recently and the prices weren't exactly dirt cheap. But Monday appeared to be deal day and not only were most of the goods we purchased half off, but lunch was too! Turns out, Mondays at the Pub you can dine for 1/2 the price when you sit at the bar. So that we did and in the end we had ourselves a cheap and successful shopping day.

all in or nothing

This month I am in the midst of a challenge! Inspired by my friend and fellow blogger, Gillian, I have taken on the task of photo-documenting my outfit each day in February. For most bloggers out there this is a normal everyday occurrence but for me it honestly feels a bit strangely self indulgent and time consuming. Gillian's reason for doing the challenge was to force herself to utilize her wardrobe and stay creative even when feeling cold & lazy during the dregs of winter. Those are reasons I can get behind! And since starting this I have also noticed my dressing room is way more tidy and organized. Bonus! I plan on posting my entire challenge here on Come Spy With Me at some point by the end of this month. For now I will give you my first five days. If you would like to follow the both of us on this fashion journey you can do that here, at ALL IN. I am also working on a simultaneous photography challenge to this month that you can peek at on my other blog, The Peregrine Papers. Wish me luck!

ringing in the season

Yes folks, it's that time of year again... the annual 700 Club awards! Also known as the first holiday party of the year. Miss Tracy even snagged herself an statue for the "Bright Eyes Award", acknowledging her capability of always brightening up a room.
