Sunday again!

Seems like the only time I get in here to write is on the weekends.
I'm having a hard time enjoying it, because it doesn't come out the way I'd like. I think I need some major tutoring. The blogs I enjoy are so colorful and I can't even seem to arrange the pages the way I want. Oh well, I'll keep trying!
I did the "dining room" that I created off the living room...last night. The black and white checks look really good with my retro green formica table. Pictures to follow!!

New Pix

Howdy all! New photos!! I love my new bedroom. Check out the "corner Vanity". Does anybody know what that kind of metal with the holes in it from the fifties and sixties is called? I'm crazy about it. Next blog post, I will feature all my stuff made outta that! A black trashcan, magazine racks, vanity w/formica top, lots of shelves, wall sconces for candles, a wall pocket letter holder, etc.. It's MOD! Later, Zootsuit

Friday is Payday!

Check out Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks song "Payday Blues" on YouTube. If you've never heard him, he was big in the '70's, and beyond, for swingin' music that is funny, hot and awesome. No self-respecting swingin' cats and kitties should be without his collections!
Have a Happy Payday and "don't spend it all in one place"!

Monday Monday

sy! Anybody out there? I couldn't sleep well, so I got up and got with it! Does anyone else ever just wanna stay home and bake, decorate, clean and work on things? No-didn't think so. Well, after being a "liberated" housewife and out in the ratrace for a while, I would LOVE to! Not that I am no longer liberated, but nowadays, liberated means choosing to stay home or work, and baby, when it's cold outside, I definitely get the nesting instinct. One thing I wanted to do this weekend was to watch "Three Wishes". It's a movie that came out in the 90's with Patrick Swayze. It is set in the late 50's, in a time when women were misfits in the workplace, or if they were single moms. The woman in the movie has an AWESOME mod house, decorated to the hilt with everything from the era, from the kitchen to the bedroom. But that aside, it's a great movie too. I won't give it away - but there is some magic goin' on involving a dog that may or may not be a "genie". I'm gonna make that my goal tonight. Watching it always fires me up to get back my regular retro vintage look after taking down the Christmas. Heck, I haven't had the house non holiday since Sept. when I decorated for Halloween! Have a non-manic Monday, chicks, and more tonight. Deb, aka Zootsuitmama
