Wednesday

salvation army finds of today!

I was delighted to find these records today for 75 cents each!
West Side Story is one of my most favorite movies! I LOVE musicals and they give me chills! (especially older ones). Have you seen it?
No, My Fair Lady is not my favorite movie by Audrey Hepburn (I have the Breakfast At Tiffany's Soundtrack on vinyl, too!!) but I thought I'd buy it, anyway :) What do you think about My Fair Lady? Yay or nay? (I believe she only sang like.. two of the songs in the movie)
Super excited about this! A great find! I'm getting ready to spin it right nao!
This movie is a classic. Love it.♥
Here is a peek at the letters I sent to my pen pals!
I would love to acquire more pen pals! You can just e-mail me with your address and we'll swap!
Well, I was looking forward to staying in tonight and making some new buttons.. but my cousin called and is having a get together tonight at his house.. this only happens once in a blue moon so... I am off in a flash!
love, polly

Monday

trial and error

you should leave me some funny comments to help me get through! I love you all!
Joao & soy milk 
(nah, he didn't take to it)
maybe if it were what I actually asked for at the store... which is rice milk.. he'd like it? What do you think?
love, polly 

Friday

Linda Zimmers House Tour!

this is her little collection of little vintage pitchers.. aren't they cute?
in love with this doily pillow and little puppet!
this is her junk trellis.. instead of flowers, she likes using things she would otherwise throw away. Clever idea, huh? :)
this is a collection of vintage medicine bottles and toiletries in her bathroom! This was my favorite feature in her house!
she decapauged this mirror with old advertisements from magazines! Such a creative idea!
these are vintage string holders she collects in her kitchen.. when someone would need string in the 50's they'd keep the ball of string behind the doll (it's hollow) and pull it out through the mouth! She stopped collecting them, though.. because they've gone up in price. About 50-100 dollars or so now!
this is also her kitchen. See the vintage colored bowls? So awesome :)
she made this little cat and mouse out of wood!
theses are vintage perfume bottles in another bathroom of hers. She collects SO many things!
love, polly

Wednesday

Suitcases and such

I went thrifting today...
I bought this vintage make-up carrying case today! (I already have a green one that I'm in love with)
I found my first blue suitcase! bought for $1.50.
I snatched these adorable size 7.5 leather cut out slip ons from Great Value Thrift! SOLD.
love, polly

Tuesday

A PRESENT! (is it xmas, 
again, already!?!)
I can be like Malibu Barbie! (haha)
these were both presents from my lovely drawing 1 teacher in Fall 2009 at Lincoln Land Community College. I loved it there :D
(leslie with her broken duck- yes, in slings)
Dear Leslie, you are awesome.. I'm glad I was the only one who laughed at you in class. Maybe I was one of the only ones who appreciated your humor. Thanks for being yourself and having fun doing it!
love, polly

Saturday

A peek at my room!

Keeping my room clean and decorated is something I need (for myself) to stay inspired from day to day and adding new things to my wall gives me a new incentive to be creative and find new inspirations.. here is a peek at my room..
this is my dad's record player from the 70's! It plays 8 tracks
 (can't find them ANYWHERE) ..can you?
this is my drawing table and some paints next to it. I love to paint! In fact, I just bought TWO new canvases at Hobby Lobby (excited!)
love, polly
