The Last lazy days of summer and falling for seafoam green!

So much fun was had in the last lazy days of summer. Bubble blowing,watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer,buckwheat pancake feasts,poolside(but sitting in the shade) vintage seventeen mag reading whilst sipping iced diet Redbull ,and watching my oldest teach my littlest to swim(I'm not so much for full body pool immersion)!
Making cream soda icecream floats,using my new fave thrifted vintage glasses,would ya look at that sea-foam accent color on those cutey-cute carousel creatures!
....and to my utterly delighted amazement......
Look what came in the mail for me!!A vintage seafoam satin dress!Sweet and thoughtful Heidi of Vacuming in High Heels and Pearls sent me an extraordinary little package. For ABSOLUTELY no reason at all!...but how did she know I was developing a thing for seafoam green?Sometimes I think we all get on this eerie ,bloggy ,prescient wavelength with eachother.Oh and Heidi I am thrilled to report this double trained (the trains are almost like little bustles)stunner fits!!!
She added this amazing vintage card with the image of a pagoda.More pagoda yumminess! An embroidered tea-towel,oh the possibilities!
There were several of these adorable tiny Kokeshi doll cards,that she designed herself!
...and look at this vintage wrapping paper!This kind of adorable-ness absolutely twitterpates my heart!
Hair inspired "summer of love" wrapping paper! The GA-ROOVIEST!
Just like Heidi,thank you again,please do go and visit her and check out her wonderful new banner!

Back to my seafoam,celery,mint green current color infatuation.I decided to create a little fashion game to amuse myself,I think I'll call it:
Fantasy Google Image Fashion Stylist
Heres how you play,go to google image and type in adjectives to describe an article of clothing.

I started with "vintage mint green dress"....
...and then typed in "doll pendant".
Alright so I cheated and visited my favorite wacky and unusual shoe site Irregular Choice,where I found these beauties in their archives.
Which then lead me to type in "orange purse"....and
....Voila! A completed collection of ensemble pieces that will likely never appear on the same body at the same time....but thats half the fun!Oh,the endless internet possibilities ! I think I will play again soon! Won't you join me and play too?

To cap off my mint,celery,sea foam,celendon(hey came up with a new one!)obsession,you will find this new creation in my ETSY,I call her Celeste!
Be back on Friday with My Own Vintage Clothing Fashion Magazine !

Well holy mints! Those are some "rad" things, "dude!" (heh heh)
I am totally stuck in the '80s mood this week for some reason. And omg, those shoes! And that purse! Omg, I want shoes like that!!! Do you think I can fake it and throw some lace and a flower on a pair of mine?

That Heidi sends the best "just because" gifts. She told me she had something for you, I knew it would be something perfect.

Okay and the Flatsy doll is cracking me up. :)
