Zootsuitmama was my shopname, but I closed it a while back. Now I have entered a magic timemachine and live in a time warp of vintage and retro ... Join me.

Just Pink!

For lack of new stuff or pix, I just thought I'd post some perky pink!

Boudoir change, desk as vanity...etc.

Then, there's the plastic rain cape, the sweater guard and the strap holder. Ahhh, the days when a bra strap wasn't supposed to be visible ...Thanks, Madonna!

One time I did a blog on what women seemed to always carry in their purses in the fifties and early sixties when I was little. I remember my Grandma always having the plastic rain bonnet, the pill cup that was collapsable and a package of Beeman's gum.

Grandma called it her "pocketbook". Anyway, hope you enjoyed my little remembrances. A lady simply must have a dressing table in the boudoir!

I found this  I found this gray and maroon panther lamp in the basement  after about 10 years and while the metal where the lightbulb goes in is rusty, the rest is fine! I'm surprised that it didn't get broken.
One of my black panther collection. I have several of the TV lamps, too!
I know the panther thing is pretty cliche' when it comes to fifties collectibles, but I still like them!
Do you have any? What about TV lamps in general?
