It is the evening of the day...

My favorite time of all is the weekend, after everything is done and the sun begins to set on Zootsuit bungalow. The light comes through the bamboo shades and illuminates my vintage goodies, making them look all the more mysterious and romantic.This look in old movies is, I think, what hooked me on the retro vintage style. I'm trying to make things more tropical for Spring and Summer, the weather has been so nice! I forget it is only the end of February.
My doggies are all happy to have me home, they are content~

Well, don't have much else to tell...other than my car pooped out last week, and I have been busy finding another...not vintage like I would love to have, but practical...
Have a great week, and check out my latest addition to my Etsy shop, a pink and grey Pendelton jacket!!

Barkcloth and vintage fabrics

Vintage fabrics and barkcloth are what tie together all the other
decor in my home.  I could never imagine passing up any barkcloth, especially when the price is right at the thrift stores, and it is getting harder and harder to find...at least the tablecloths with cool and interesting pattens still seem to be out there!
I would love to see all of your vintage drapes, fabric, tablecloths etc..and how you use it in your homes!

guest room

This was the weekend my BFF was to come up to visit, but alas, she was down with the flu last week. Anyway, here is what she missed. The guest room with floral curtains, chenille cuddly bedspreads, and all the lovely fineries a lady could want waiting on the desk/dresser. I really like the feel of the room, so I slept in it! It didn't go to waste after all! LOL! Hope all you blogger chickadees have a great week!

blue room

I found these curtains the other day, and loved the brightness of them! I had them on my etsy for a while, but no one seemed that crazy about them, so I'll keep 'em! It brightens up the room so much, which we need around these parts - Winter finally started. I have been spoiled for the most part with good weather. Now, it's only about 15 degrees, and they are calling for snow Monday! Hope everyone is good, I need to check out all of your blogs today... so behind from moving my Mom, etc!
