Is it spring yet? I feel like it’s been winter forever and it just won’t let up. After a brief tease of mild weather, Boomdee’s toes were left itching for flip-flop weather this week.
Is it hard on your eyes? I think it’s called ‘snow blindness’. Your welcome 😀 So, blah, blah, blah, cold. Yadda, yadda, winter. No worries, I can always hibernate in the Boom Room. Unlike a bear, I’ve been crafting like a maniac, preparing for a Bridal Shower. There was a banner, a garland and a pretty wreath, all made from paper by yours truly.
I’m not smitten by every little thing I make, but I must tell you, the wreath was purty cute. It’s laden with 3D tea-cups, roses, doilies, a teapot and butterflies on a base covered with glittered tulle and white crepe paper.
Sounds like a lot right? A true case of when ‘more’ is just ‘more lovely’.
The girls wanted to celebrate at a vintage tea party. Naturally, they came to the right place 😀 I do have a swell collection of vintage teacups and loved the opportunity to bring them out into the sunshine.
Some are from garage sales, some from antique malls and some from family. I think they’re like mini works of art.
Do you collect any teacups yourself? How do you display them? Want to start a gang? LOL, just kidding 😀 These three might be my favourite.
Did you know there are Pinterest boards dedicated to old Photo Booth pictures? Do you remember them? Cramming a bunch of friend inside to make funny faces?
I think many of the photo’s are from the 40’s and 50’s. I can spend hours looking through them to see what they were wearing and how they’ve done their hair. Well now, that guy on the bottom is just the cutest 😉
I’m really drawn to fashion, cars, music and decor from the 40’s. Things just seemed a little more polished back then don’t you think? Hats and gloves were part of your wardrobe. I wish they were still part of my day, everyday. Who could part with these beautiful gloves? A mere $6.00 at the antique mall !
I thought it’d be fun to have our very own vintage Photo Booth at the Shower. Not surprisingly, most of it is my own vintage baubles. A few things I hunted for at the antique mall. Everything was popped into a cute little vintage suitcase.
Of course there were hats and gloves, bangles and pearls but I also included vintage books, an old camera, vintage glamour magazine and a few other surprises for guests to pose with.
The grown ups and young alike enjoyed playing dress-up.
The ‘booth’ was a simple a chenille bedspread, adorned with vintage crocheted pot holders (yep, I collected those for a while too, LOL). I hung the chenille spread on an expandable shower rod. So I didn’t have to buy a thing and there wasn’t anything to recycle. It’s surprising what you have around the house when you start looking.
Gads, so thats a lot to catch up on, thank you so much for coming by for a peak. With the shower a done deal, I’m now in holiday mode. I leave Monday for Washington for our “WordPress Blogging Buddy Spring Palooza” (not the official title, I just made that up. Can you tell? LOL) Bridal Showers, crafting, tea parties and travel, geez I suppose it’s true, “girls do just wanna have fun”!
