Saturday Flea Market Finds

Yesterday hubby and I went to a different flea market.I had planned on antiquing but For some reason I got lazy and kind of didn't feel like doing anything.So we ended up just going to the one flea market and this is what I got.They didn't have very much like the one I normally go to.This one was people selling crappy junk that they probably got from somewhere unknown.There was an older couple toward the back with nice things but nothing that really caught my attention.So I bought 3 things from the $1.00 table and that was it.I think my hubby was in shock I didn't feel like buying.Lol.Anyway here is what I grabbed.
A little entertaining cook book.This one was written in Florence Sc.Which is about an hour from me.I love the real southern family recipes.Especially the deserts.lol.
No explanation.Just Yummmm.lol.The deserts in this one are a must for me to try.Especially for the holidays.
My little black bag.Just one dollar.Gonna have to find a better place to take photos.the lighting in every room sucks.
A look inside.I think this was my favorite out of the 3.lol.But everythig was a dollar.Can't beat that.Maybe next weekend I will be in a better shopping mood.Anyone ever have days like that?Just don't know what you want to look for?

Party Time

Today has been a very stressful day.Full of family drama.And having that bull pucky around me when I am PMsing is the worst for the people around me.Being italian and a leo my eyes probably go red like a bull with steam coming out my ears.lol.So tonight to shake the shit off me I am having a PMS party for myself.Here is what I hogged at Walmart.
Yep Party time.
I love the name of this wine.They must have had the idea just for days like this when we have them. I am mad at hubby for gigging all weekend and his phone battery died .And I am a worrier so I was flipping till he called.Lucky my mam in law called and we had a nice chat.It's funny he seems to get gigs when I PMS.Hmmm coincidence?lol.
To start the party wine with coconut cake.Pepperidge farms is the best damn cake.You can tell i'm moody I cursed alot tonight.lol.So what are your comfort foods during PMS?
Enjoyed watching An American in Paris at my party.With Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron.I love her dancing.Dancing is a great stress reliever it's the one thing you can do where you don't have to talk to people.Hope your all having a nice saturday.

Red Hair Envy

I am still trying to get my hair the perfect red.It's a giant pain in my backside.I had the perfect shade years ago when loreal made smoldering red.I got it at sallys and it was perfect and lasted forever and never faded.Thats almost impossible with red hair color.It fades quickly and you have to contantly refresh.Then they discontinued it once the high lift colors came out.Ughh the shades I have gone through to get this shade.Anyway the point of this post is I got to enjoy watching State Fair with Vivian Blaine and Dick Haymes.She has the perfect red hair in this movie and I was drooling.I wouldn't be surprised if it was smoldering red.Makes me wish I could go back in time and ask her.lol.Vivian was a strawberry blonde so I guess this is the technocolor of strawberry blonde or I don't know.There are all sorts of terms for the blonde shades.A red head is a red head.lol.
Looks dark in this pic but still gorgeous.
This is how I see blonde.lol.She is so adorable.Look at her shoes.drool.
Vivian as Miss Adelaide from Guys and Dolls.
Ok enough Vivian eye candy.Here is a scene from the movie.This is the haircolor that made me screetch.It is what I live for.Vivians hair color here looks exactly like Smoldering red That I used to use.Why oh why did loreal discontinue it?I use a new one from loreal but it fades in a week,unlike when they made the smoldering red it never faded.I will get it one day.Have a nice day everyone.

Loafing Around Sunday

Today my Sunday has been spent loafing around,playing Sims,Zombie Lane and Bullshitting with Dora on Facebook.Dora has me saying bullshitting now.lol.Also had to drag ass to Walmart to take Max's halloween costume back.He got this gorilla costume and when we got home it looked nothing like the photo on the package and only covered the face.He wanted one that covers the whole head.The main reason I returned it is because it smelled really strong like spray paint or some kind of plastic maybe from the stuff it's made of.Cheap shit.So got my money back and he got  this.And some halloween make up.
ha ha you can see my chin and lips.I dont know how he can breathe.I couldn't
Damn forgot to grab another bag of candy corn in walmart.This is all thats left from Fridays bag.
See loafing Sunday no make up on ad my hair a mess.lol.I think I have enough candy corn to go round.Who wants some?
A great start to my Sunday was Audrey Hepburn in Love In The Afternoon.I watched this before going to Walmart*hell*
Watched this when I got back.Turner Classic movie channel is the best.I live on this channel.Now I am watching Beach Blanket Bingo.What did you do for your Sunday?

So Excited

Well it's friday and pay day.So since I was off I decided to go to my favorite antique store.This is the one I found my vanity in.So I decided I would check to see if it was still there.I have been obsessing over this vanity for over 3 months.I know it's crazy but I really wanted it.It's from 1920 and it's not one of those giant bulky ones .Now I like the bulky ones but I dont have the room but this one is small with beautiful detail on it and the mirror is amazing.When I first found it it was $375.00.with 20% off tag.So I kind of sulked a while.and hoped it would always be there for later.Well today I decided to check and maybe just by myself something cuz it's been a while.I went upstairs and my heart started racing.I was hoping it was there.And they had moved everything around again and I didnt see it and went nto panic and dissapointment mode that I didn't get it.So I saw this green 50's table with matching chairs and got excited cuz I had the same exact table but no chairs.I turned around to leave and ask about just buying the chairs and there it was.My vanity was still there,I felt like the grinch when his heart grew big when he got the christmas spirit.Ad then saw that they reduced it to $200.00.Now the guy who works there knows how much I loved this vanity so I told him I wanted it and I went and cashed my pay check.On my way back to the antique store i was having the quilty thoughts cuz I was about to give 200 away and thats all I had and I knew i would be in trouble.So when I got there I asked if there was a way I could put a deposit down and pay the rest next friday cuz I get payed again from job #2.He said that was fine.so I put a 100 dollar deposit on it and  am excited to annonce that next friday I will be the new owner of that 1920 vanity.They are going to deliver it but I will stop by and tae pics of her beauty.I am so excited I can't think.So now off to do my fashtitute frock friday pics.Hope everyone is having a nice friday.What has been your must have obsession antique item?
This one is very similar to mine but mine has a more detailed mirror.

Frankie My Dears

Here are my pics of my Frankenstien nails.I thought it was so cute me and Dora thought of the same thing.lol.Guess we had a twin moment.She is my mexi sister and we do that every once in a while.lol.Sorry these pics are horrible.Nikon cameras are supposed to be good but I don't know how to set it for close ups.Will have to have hubby fix it eventually.
Polishes: Strong adhesion clear base coat.Cha Cha Cha by china glaze.*green*.Glacier by china glaze *sparkly* sally girl black for the hair and stitch and webs.White stripe rite for eyes and webs.Red stripe rite for stitch.

First I used my clear coat.

During my excitment of doing Mr Frankie,I forgot to take pics of the cha cha cha green and each process.So I will write each step.After the green dried I used the black and painted the tip of my nail and then used a toothpick and dabbed some from the brush and scribbled the hair.lol.Then I used the white stripe rite to do eyes and then small dab of black in the midle.Then again used the tooth pick to make his stitch mouth.Then the red stripe right to high light his stich mouth.While Mr Frankie is cute I think he looks like a pickle with hair.hee hee.

After doing Mr.Frankie/Pickle.I went over the other green nails with Glacier by china glaze.This is a very pretty glittery polish.Looks so pretty by itself too.When that dried I took the toothpick and dipped it in black and make my black webs.Then took the white stripe rite and highlighted the web.
On my right hand I did Mrs.Frankie/Pickle.lol.It sure is hard trying to use the camera with my left hand.Wish it was clearer so you can see her stripes in her hair.Mr.Frankie and Mrs.Frankie Pickle say hello to Doras Frankies.We want to break out the margaritas and salsa and chips and have a party.xx
Here is a much clearer pic of Mr Frankie
And one of Mrs.Frankie who looks like she has a red nose and mustache.lol.Thanks Vain Glory Sinner for the camera tips it has helped..xx
