My Stash" post following the wonderful gift from my mom (who else?) - a woman of incredible foraging and finding abilities evidenced here - who gave me this lovely carved bangle in unusual bright orange bakelite as part of my Christmas gift.

Carmen & Ginger. For my own collection (and to share with you here), however, I discovered this great old Rosen candy card. It is designed to hold a valentine lollypop, so, I added the best one I could find at the moment (although I'd prefer something with a bit more vintage look - red translucent with paper stick at least!). The dogs look like they are licking the pop and there is a cute message below. I especially liked it since it was from the Rosen Candy Company from Providence, RI. This is the same company that made all of those wonderful hard plastic molded candy containers for Christmas and Halloween that are oh-so-collectible these days. For you; belated, but, the sentiment is real.

hipster" listings for Etsy last week. (see links above). I am only halfway through listing, but, have all the pics done. These magazines, however, will provide new "models" for many photoshoots to come. And, I suspect, many blog posts to come as well!
Etsy spokesmodel. She is "Pleasing Herself" in her sexy undies while personally crafting the most awesome 1970's flower power halter dress. Etsy personified!
deco devival" of the 1970's in one of my recent Carmen and Ginger listings but I had never seen these bags before. Amazing! Love the meeting of iconic silent film stars, classic deco metal mesh bags and pop-art!
Before I close this post let me apologize for my recent blogging absence. I thank all those who recently commented on posts; I finally caught up and posted all your comments - thank you for reading and contributing! I am happy to announce that I will be taking a Part Time job beginning this month. I still should have plenty of time to post - no excuses! - and to continue the Etsy shop. Maybe not with the same intensity as before, but, certainly with a bit more freedom as I will also have a paycheck. Thank you all for your support and I will be posting more goodies from these incredible magazines soon!
