Thrills and Frills






Happy Friday!
I'm going to Austin this weekend for a mini road trip and be back on Sunday. Monday is a holiday for us.
What are your plans for the weekend?


Oh and I've been tagged by LdyLux:


5 Things that make me GRUMPY

1. When I ask my husband to do something a kajillion times, so I get fed up and do it myself and then he says I was Just About to do that, as I'm doing it... ugggghhh, really?! No you weren't!

2. When someone invites themselves to an event your going to, which you did not invite them too.
I just think it's rude.

3. Standing in the post office line when there is one person behind the counter and 15 people in line and 2 other post office workers are just roaming around the lobby.

4. Finding onions in my burger after I told them NO onions.

5. People who run into you and don't say "excuse me" or "I apologize".
    Now I know your mother taught you some manners.

How was your weekend? I got sick Friday night from whatever I ate at lunch, so still not feeling up to par.
But I did make it out to the Praia Urbana party Saturday afternoon, and it was great. Just more people than there usually is, but I managed to snap a picture of a girl whose outfit was pretty cute. Hope to have that posted for you tomorrow. Happy Tuesday!

Friday and tomorrow

Friday, another end of the work week for me.
I work full time in an office and have the weekends off.
I am really contemplating on doing the vintage thing as full time, but have my set backs when I think of it...Do any of you have any advice, tips, good suggestions?
I have even thought of getting a part time job just so I still have some cash flow when it's slow.

Tomorrow there is a day time beach party called Praia Urbana (translates to Urban Beach) here in Houston, where I live. It's an urban beach party, with dj's from Houston, set inside the city and the venue is a small mexican cafe with a huge backyard full of sand and a stage. This party has been going on for 4 years and I have been to every one and its always a great time. It has gotten so popular that they have extended it to a block party for more space. You meet so many nice people and see lots of different styles. My goal is to try to snap a few photos of some ladies and gents to post on my blog next week. Most people will be in bathing suits, shorts and summer dresses because the weather is suppose to be in the 90s.
Let's hope I don't have to many adult beverages and forget to do so!!!HA.
As seen below dancing, in my vintage Sear's fedora.    
Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?

My Vegas Trip in pics

A few pictures from when I visited Vegas at the beginning of the month.
I have to say, I was correct, the Neon Museum was my favorite part of the trip.
So if you ever go to Vegas I highly recommened it. The tour is outside and its about an hour and you get history on some of the signs. It's a bit further up from the strip, but catch a cab and bring your camera, you won't regret it.


These are photos from our first night there when we visited downtown Las Vegas and some in The Bellagio hotel.
For more on my trip to Vegas, read about the Neon Museum and my thrifting adventure.

Not really much of a post today...
I know there are tons of post on Zooey Deschanel, but I couldn't help myself.
When I think of sweet and whimsy, I think of her!

Images published in Lula issue#4

I updated my etsy shop this week and these pieces are some that I could see her in.

Happy Wednesday!

Vanessa Paradis as Edie Sedgwick

Karl Lagerfeld's photoshoot of Vanessa Paradis as Edie Sedgwick in Factory Store.
I had to do a double take...She (Vanessa) looks so similar to her in these photos.
Very spot on Karl. Well at least in my opinion.

Anywho, how was your weekend? Do anything exciting?
I didn't do much this weekend because of the rain in Houston. Saturday my husband and I went antique shopping, it was a great day to do it too...it was gloomy. We went in search for a chair, but no luck, but we purchased an art deco ashtray. Funny thing is we aren't smokers, I guess my mother in law can put it to use when she visits.
I managed to photograph some new pieces that I will be updating the shop with this week.
Unfortunately my model was out of town, so had to use the trusty old mannequin.
 Yesterday made it out for some dancing in the afternoon with some friends.
It was just what I needed to get me out of my funk.


**Oh and I picked the winner for the giveaway!**
I took pictures so you know I picked randomly out of a jar.
CONGRATS ANNA KATRINA!
I will email you shortly for your mailing address.
