I just love vintage plastic flower things! This is just part of my collection! I occassionally make jewelry out them, but I don't really like to part with the pieces. Crazy me! I think I 'd just prefer to stare at them all day long. HA!

To show off my love for dutch thingys:
I have a lot of vintage dutch linens, so I copied bits and pieces of each one, added my own pizzazz, and there you are!
Today, I found inspiration in one of my mother's head vases. Yes! A head vase! Head vases were popular in the 50's to 70's I think. They're a porcelin head, with a hole for a flower or something.
And here's my painting. I used old old crafty acrylics, and I had no orange paint and about a spot of yellow! Check out the glittery glaze I used for her hair! I changed her eyelashes a bit - I hate painting thin lines with a brush.

(The fabric also reminds me of one of a Ryan McGinness painting. I was so lucky to discover him at the Museum of Modern Art last year. Please look him up!)
Sara also included a coordinating little envelope! Thank you Sara!

I love this handmade ceramic pot thingy. I think I'm going to put pens and pencils and paint brushes and stuff! It's dated 1979 on the bottom.
I bought this rooster from the same person as the pot. They kind of match a little!
I love buying jewelry at flea markets! That Christmas thing in the middle is actually a lens from a pair of glasses. Someone glued an image to the back and added a pin. The red beads are the neatest pop beads I have ever seen - I love the color! Some vintage plastic earrings, Russian Doll pin, charm bracelet and another Christmas pin!A bag full of vintage birdy cake picks. I love old cake directions. There's so many of these- so some of them may end up in my ShoeFlower Etsy store. Let me know if you interested and I can reserve some for you!
This amazing vintage book from 1959 was $1. Woo Hoo! It's French for Children and has two stories: The Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood. Besides the fact that the illustrations are amazing- Each line as three lines of text. One in French, on is the pronunciation, and one is in English. I learned today that Little Red Riding Hood is Chaperon Rouge! Woo Hoo!
Ta ta for now!
