Vintage Here and There

Hi everyone!

Just a little bit of everything here:

Rice Babies is hosting a vintage swap which looks to be fun. It's not a crafty swap so if you love vintage and would like to swap some vintage awesomeness with someone else be sure to sign up! Click the button below for more info:


I FINALLY found some groovy vintage frames and was lucky enough to find an optician in my area that would actually come within 20 yards of them and put my prescription in them. He said they looked to be from around 1954 and had never had lenses in them, excellent shape!

I got them from Ally Scura and FYI if you're looking for frames: This was a great shopping experience AND I paid about 1/3 of what someone else was charging for the same frames on Etsy. Score! I also got a cut and color so I feel much better. LOL

Right now I'm wrestling with the red lipstick I bought the other day. I finally found a shade that actually looks red on me now I just have to get it applied where I don't look like a 5 year old messing in Mommy's make up. LOL

Not much else to report on my end...what are you up to? Any thrilling vintage finds lately???

  3. You look so cute! (I've been there and done that with cat eye glasses from the early 60's, and don't want to do it again. You young girls have at it. grins)

  8. Love your glasses! Allyn Scura is the best. Marty and I have been wearing their vintage glasses for years now. We always get loads of compliments. Their customer service is fantastic. You can take their frames to 'most any optician - I’ve taken mine to a local one here, Marty to Lenscrafters.
