i have always loved vintage things. when i was a lil girl (and even now really) the dream was/is to move into an old house, rummage around a fully stocked attic, and find that one treasure that i have always been looking for.
when i was in highschool, i was all about the 70's (hell, who am i kidding, i still i am) my room was decked out in all the orange and pea green stuff that i could find at the thrift store (think the brady bunch kitchen). i wish i still had that stuff, unfortunately, i no longer have that stuff. but thats okay. it makes room for all the stuff that i am buying now.
whenever i find the cutest lil vintage item, i swoon instantly and *have* to have it. i mean its vintage and more than likely there are not a bunch of them around. i can't wait till our new house is built and i can fill it with all sorts of goodies that had a history that i can only dream about.
cute, red straw like sandals that have the cutest flowers on top. they *kill* my feet, but i still wear them. i think they just need to be broken in a lil bit. i bought these at the "yellow jacket" in milwaukee. if anyone reading lives in or around milwaukee and you want more information, lemme know. i should still have the biz card.
flapper tin i bought at an estate sale. i love the flappers and the colors.
aloha!! a dress i bought at tip top atomic shop in milwaukee. this dress is the best for a luau. the bodice is a stretchy material so really, it does fit me ;) the straps fall low on the shoulders. i still haven't found the perfect thing to wear this to..lol.
i have used this purse so much and carried so much stuff in it, that its starting to fall apart (wahhhh!) the outside is like a plastic/oil cloth. the inside has a zipped up pocket that goes from one side to the other and is in the middle. i *love* this. i bought this also at the "yellow jacket".
