My New Antique

I would like everyone to meet my new dresser to go with my vanity.I have been waiting a month to get it and on my way to pick it up worried that I would get there and it would be gone.This antique store is ginormous and even has layaway.How cool is that.I have put a lamp on layaway and keeping that post a secret.Cuz thats going to be a special post.lol.Anyway I named my dresser Lilly.Yes I name them.lol.And Rose seems to like her.They are almost twins.I polished her up but still need to wipe the drawers on the inside before putting my things in it.I am so excited to have it.I was so gutted when the dresser that went with Rose got sold the day I went to buy it so finding Lilly  that was amost an exact match has made me feel there must have been a lucky penny in my change purse.I am now broke again but it was worth it and I have my bedroom almost finished furniture wise.Now on the prowl for a double or king size canopy or four post bed to match them and a long dresser to go with it.Hubby is going to need a place for his clothes now.lol.Here are some photos of Lilly and Rose.Enjoy.
Too much glare but here is Lilly all polished up.Even an orb popped bye.lol.
Top drawer and part of the middle drawer.The markings are similar to Rose.
Poor thing has a chip.Not sure how to fix that.
The top
The bottom.She is missing her wheels.Thats ok.
Close up of her detail.
Couldn't leave Rose out.She likes her piture Taken too.lol.
Rose's detail.Even has the same drawer handles.I don't know how this happened but I am very excited.

60 Years Strong

I have been in love with England since I was a little girl and I still am to this day.I always thought  it's the most beautiful place in the world and I was super excited when my mother told me that England  had a Queen.I think I was 8 years old.And so my obsession with England began.My family and alot of people for that matter think I am crazy I want to live there so bad.And my friends and family will tell you it's all I talk about.And my poor husband never hears the end of my whining and nagging for him to move me there.lol.I am very proud I have an English husband and a wonderful English family who love how much I love England.Though my husband just thinks i'm mental and laughs.And I will never give up on wanting to live there.But anyway I just wanted to wish Queen Elizabeth a happy Anniversay for 60 years of her reign as Queen of England and if I was allowed to give her a big hug I would.Hee hee.

My Hair Color Video

Hi everyone.Sorry I am absent all the time.I have been in a moody funk since my husband went back to England So Today I colored my hair like Lucy in the pic above.And also did a little show off video of the color.I have just started doing videos and have a little youtube channel.It's been a while so I was nervous in this one.You can tell cuz I kept forgetting what I wanted to say.I talked with my hands and trying to catch my breath.lol.Don't know why that happens.lol.Anyway hope you all like the video and the color.I still need to edit the hair cut one.I haven't done it cuz I am worried I will do it wrong and mess the whole video up.Oh and the clicking in the video is the fan on my comp.I need to clean it or something.Enjoy .xx
