This creepy dude stayed in his dusty spot in the antique store. ~shudder~
The Mom and I did a bit of antiquing on Monday in Pueblo and she picked up this super cool Princess rotary phone. She can't technically use it on her land line, but who cares! It's aqua and fabulous! Are you a vintage phone collector? After seeing this beauty, I could totally start a new collection!
We didn't get to spend Mother's Day together, but that's ok. We hung out the next day so I could give her this little ensemble. The tin is in rough shape, but that's what makes it so cool. And the top of the lid says, "to mother, with love." Perfect! Gardening is not my specialty, so hopefully this thing survives more than a few weeks.
This shade of blue is the closest to aqua Pyrex so far. Isn't if cheery and springy? It could be my new favorite color. Ok, it is. I keep looking down at my nails, admiring how pretty they are... I might need more things in my life. : )
Pyrex problems...running out of room!
So this is the bakelite bangle I found in Oklahoma a few weeks ago. It is big and beautiful, but the color was a bit muddy and it was super scratched up so I decided to sand it down and polish it. I could tell before I started that it would have some kind of marbling because you could see it underneath the patina if you looked hard enough. Well I didn't expect this! Two dark stripes and I don't think it is from the way I sanded it. This picture isn't doing it much justice, but I think it came out pretty nice.
Mmmmm...such a great way to start the day. Everything is better in Pyrex.
See that happy smiley guy right there? That's my twin brother standing next to his "new to him" airplane!!! I know, crazy uh? He lives in Alaska and is working on his pilots license. I'm so freaking proud if him! This guy dreams big and always goes for it and I couldn't admire him more.
Are you on Instagram yet? If you aren't, you totally should be! All the cool kids hang out there. Ok, that obviously isn't true if I'm on it... ; )
