The Schoop Scoop

Hi everyone.I have finally got two special items today.Two 1950's Moss lamps with Heidi Schoop figures on them.I am so in love with these lamps I can't even describe it.One is a radio and the other as you can see is a clock.Both are in prefect working condition.The radio lamp I found at my new favorite antique shop when I purchased my dresser Lilly.I put it on layway almost 2 weeks ago.So today I have been waiting to pay the rest of the amount and pick it up.But first I had to wait for Mr UPS to bring the clock lamp.The clock lamp I found on ebay the day I put the other on layaway.Since it had no shade I thought I would browse Ebay for a shade to go with it.And what a shock to see the clock lamp staring at me,putting me in that buy me now trance.Now this is the lamp I mentioned in the last post about the radio that I had found on ebay but with in a few hurs it had disappeared so I thought someone got it quick.A few days later I was checking ebay again for a shade, and the lamp was back.I imediatley put it on watch.I was determined to have it and have a set of lamps.
Anyway right after I clicked watch I saw local pick up only and it was is california.My heart sank again.I really wanted this lamp so sent the seller a messege that I was really interested in this lamp and if she would consider selling it to me and I knew shipping would be expensive.The lady was very nice about it.She could have said"hey dumb dumb,can't you read?It says local pick up! But she was very nice and we worked it out and she sent it UPS.It arrived today in a ginormous box.filled to the rim with the white peanuts.It was so big I almost fell in.lol.then had dig for the lamp and shade.I am sure my dogs were laughing at me.The lamp was wrapped in loads of bubble wrap and taped up I could almost not unwrap it.Lol.But finally got it all unwraped and put together,So here is the lamp the kind lady sent me.
So pretty.I need to set the clock.lol.
Under the base in a little lightbulb and it lights the base pink.The radio needs a lightbulb so once i get somebulbs I will take pics.
Just love the figures and it looks so pretty with the black.

This is the radio lamp.Just love her dress with the collar.


Here is some history about Mrs Schoop.I found it on yahoo so I hope no one gets mad at me if it's theirs.

Hedi Schoop was born in Switzerland and an accomplished dancer in Germany, married to a well-known composer, Frederick Hollander. In 1933 Schoop and her husband fled Nazi Germany. After settling in Hollywood she began experimenting first in plaster and later in pottery, and soon became one of Califoria's most respected manufacturers of ceramic products.
Almost all the pieces produced at Schoop's North Hollywood factory were personally designed and modeled by Hedi. The most popular lines were the figurines of men and women...European and Asian couples in native attire, Hawaiian hula dancers and American debutantes. Besides the human figures Hedi Schoop produced animal figurines, vases, planters, candlesticks, ashtrays, and more...often these articles formed coordinated sets of items.
Business thrived in the 1950s, but a disastrous fire destroyed her factory in 1958. Schoop chose not to rebuild, instead selling some of her molds to other local manufacturers, and doing some design work for The California Cleminsons. Hedi Schoop retired from the pottery business in the early sixtiesI am really happy to have this little set of lamp.And lilly like keeping them safe.So now just need new shades.Does anyone have any schoop?I would love to see them.

Lipstick Ewwwww

Hi everyone.Thought I would do a little post about Kate Moss's lipsticks.I have been after it a while and found it at walmart.And was super excited until I picked one up and it had been used.Then I noticed that every lipstick had no plastic seal wrapping on them so I kept picking up lipsticks and checking if they were used and almost every one of the tubes had been used.I don't know if this is just how Rimmel packages their Kate lipsticks or if some loser had nothing better to do than to unwarp every lipstick.but it looks as though they come un protected.So I have written Rimmel about this issue.I was upset to see this and not surprised walmart carries it like this.lol.I have heard great reviews about this lipstick but I think I will order it instead of buying in the store if it is sold in this way.The last thing I want on my lips is to share someones cold sores or other fungus.I will keep you posted what I hear back from Rimmel if I hear back.But was wondering if there are any ladies who use this lipstick who knows if this is the norm for it?Kate sure has pretty colors though.

A Day At The Car Show Part 1

Yesterday me and my son Max decided to go to the car show.As much as I love classic cars it wasn't very fun.Of course I was dressed up but the people around here acted as if I was outer space.Making ignorant comments and just being rude.At first I wasn't bothered but by the end of the day I was ready to go cuz I felt like I was going to get into trouble cuz I was finding it hard to hold my tongue.I really don't understand the closed minds of the south sometimes.Anyway enough of the whining about people being mean to me.Here are some pics of me and my son and some kick ass cars.
My son Max wants an SS Comaro one day.He liked this orange one.
I want oneMax found another SS Comaro.lolWhat's so funny about the way I look?Not a damn thing.
This purple car was so prettyMy left eye kept watering the whole time.My eyeliner was getting smeared.
lol.My bra made me look like I have big woobies.
loved this carHee heethose men were back there talking shit.Max loves woody on anything.lol.I squinted in every photo.lol.It was 80 degrees and the sun was very bright.
sooooo pretty.
 I will do a part two to this.I am having trouble posting the photos.Grrrr blogger acting up.
