So hows your summer going? Mine is busy,busy,busy!....and thus I took a little unexpected bloggy break!
Crooked Halo is playing Bagheera ,in Disney's The Jungle Book,shown here with King Louis.It was quite exciting because my oldest baby had one of the leads,and quite a bit of dialogue. She was in a word ,GRRRRRRREAT!
Naturally, I designed the make-up and acted as make-up artist/theatre vampire all week.I love how Shere Khans tiger makeup turned out. Shown here,celebrating after the show,you may click to enlarge any pic.
Have I shared my latest e-bay obsession with you? I have been snapping up vintage Seventeen magazines from the 70's lately. Sure the 60's had better design,but there is just something about these mid-70's tomes,that is completely capturing my imagination .
Perhaps its their anybody can wear this "Look what we found " feature found in every issue.This is a special little section,where the editors find funky fabulous goodies. Maybe its a Woolworth shopping spree,or perhaps its....
a visit to wonderfully quirky New York City boutique!Just look at these skirts!
Embellished denim? Makes my heart pitter-pat,and how about those shoes.
Look what JDP found! The same shoes! This time by Dollhouse and snapped up for less than fifteen dolllars at Ross!
I am loving the clever styling for these skirts(click,enlarge and read). These skirts are giving me such inspiration.
Do you know what my secret fantasy ambition is?
To be a childrens clothing designer!
So during my bloggy break I set about to make it happen.
Introducing.... my ETSY shop Jungle Dream Pagoda!
I call this little girls skirt "Hattie".
The back has wonderful vintage fabric.
The front has a vintage apron worked into recycled jeans.
This is "Amaryllis".
The back has the same vintage baby blue lace as the patch.
Shes made from recycled jeans thrifted lace appliques a vintage apron and...
...a crocheted doily.
"Delilah" is a baby girl jumper,made from a rough and already tumbled in denim ,a vintage hankie ,and vintage embroidery.
I will also feature childrens vintage. This little boys 70's jacket will certainly make that casual but hip statement we moms love.
Right now ,I want to focus on a childrens shop,including fun vintage toys and decor. Although,from time to time I just might throw something in for the big kids.
Any special requests of things you would like to see in my ETSY shop?
