A couple of weeks ago I went to a small town museum sale where i got a few things. I got an old curvfit women’s razor the advertisement caught my eye! When I opened it up and saw more ads I knew it was coming home with me. The next item I found was a perfume bottle I later found out my great-grandmother who’s nickname was Tootie used the exact perfume that I bought! So it will stay on my shelf in memory of her even though I did not meet her I here a lot of stories from my family and now whenever I look at it will be a reminder of those conversations.
Razor is for sale here
Well apparently Sailor Moon is now vintage. So it is safe to blog about it here, but I would have done it anyway. Sailor Moons was a 90′s anime cartoon they made so many things, toys, plushies, video games, toys, even a garbage can just look on Ebay! The sailor moon universe consists of manga which are Japanese comic books, anime which has 5 seasons one never dubbed which means wasn’t brought over here. Including 3 hour long movies. Then there’s live action episodes and musicals. They just started to bring sailor moon back they started with the manga which is now finished.We are all hoping for the anime to come back but they keep pushing back the date sadly. There is also a whole fandom for sailor moon. Fan fiction in which people can right their own story with the original characters as well and fan made characters called OC’s I even have a few! here is an example below.
Here is some of my Sailor Moon collection! I have more but its all packed away sadly.
I learned a new term in sewing this week. I had bought a piece of lingerie and thought they where just ruffles but it is called ruching it’s a way of bunching fabric.To achieve this effect you gather fabric in repeated fashion to form pleats. It adds style to a piece. It is a very tedious technique that has been used throughout history.
Here is an example of beautiful ruching:

For more one the subject, how to’s, and history.
So this one is all about musicals I have many of them as I am a collector. I pick them up from thrift stores and garage sales. Some of the art on the sleeves are amazing!
In fact they usually catch my eye like this one I bought the other day. The cover wacked me over the head with the graphics.
The other reason for collecting is if it has a personal connection with me like this one.
My dad found it for me at a self owned thrift store. I have a connection with this particular record because it was one of the musicals I was a part of on high school it holds a big part of my school memories.
Then there’s just collecting for the heck of it. Whatever it is that you want to collect.
I found this beauty at a thrift store awhile ago it struck me instantly.
Maybe it’s because of the rusty charm or the artsy quality but either way I swooped it up.
I love the fact that this lovely windchime is a rainbow just like a certain trout. Now it hangs right by my window for me to see everyday.
So this past weekend my parents and I drove to Wisconsin to help my grandparents with the Elkhorn flea market On the first day was Saturday we set up right around one 1:00 pm., After helping with that I decided to look around for a bit and saw I few things that I loved but couldn’t afford on both days of the flea. Lots of people wouldn’t let me take photos of any of their stuff which is understandable. One of the items I loved was an art deco table shown below:
art deco table
i loved this table art deco mixed with naked ladies done. But sadly my pockets weren’t big enough.
dress-form with newspaper print
This beautiful dress-form covered with newsprint fabric caught my eye and then the tag lead them away. All of them that where there where in my opinion, overpriced .
fire extinguisher lamp
I thought this was so cool! An old fire extinguisher turned into a lamp.it takes a very creative mind to combine these two.
