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.

Hola my name is Crazy! Welcome to the Calypso Carnival!

Ok, so...I find this sheetmusic last night. That set me off on changing the back/dining room to my "mexican" themed room...At 3 am, I had transferred Fiesta and all to the back room, and made the kitchen have a cleaner, less cluttered look. Some may say, "Why Zoot, why are you so loco?" I don't know! But here are the results~
Not a whole lot different, just less stuff on the counters, more mixture of primary colors and pastelsThe cabinets show the colors with the dishesThis is my new curtain over the sink window, it's my hankies.
D for Deb, that's my real name.


More thrift store finds this weekend...Bunny bank, a sixties oriental girl...Suzy Kwan.

Well, I feel better, until the next decorating bug hits me. I'm headed for the basement. Who knows what I'll find while I'm cleaning! Adios Amigos and Amigas. If youre into mid century I might even say Aoembas'.
