one happy junkhunter!

Two estate sales in one day make for a very happy junkhuntergirl!!!
What is in there, you might ask????

Well, there are some funky patterns, neato wooden clothes hangers, some darn cute aprons, a bag of millinery feathers and lots of other little odds and ends. A good haul and a happy girl!

Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight!

Today's Halloween fashion tidbit is DISCO!!! Now some of us have already done this era so consider it costume-y, while to others it is a whole new discovery of wonderful fashion goodness!! Whatever your take on the days of disco, here are a few of my faves!

Maybe a bit more Dynasty, but this one is soooo over the top, I love it!

Golden goodness, so sexy and slinky!

Can't forget about the guys!! Stained glass print poly disco shirt!

Getting Ready for Halloween??

In our house Halloween is a big deal! We already are shopping for all the finishing touches for our costumes, most is homemade and not a "costume in a bag" deal.

I have also started listing on ebay lots of clothing just perfect for making a memorable Halloween costume.

First stop are Fun Flapper Girls and Sassy Saloon Girls!!

Cutest wig with attached feather headpiece.

1980s goes Flapper stylewith tons of beads and sequins!!

Homemade nice larger size Saloon Girl dress in hot pink and black.

We found two of these great fringed dresses for those that like to cover up a bit! One in M/L, 2nd in L/XL. So cute with that loooonnng bottom fringe.

Another... of my Victorian cuff bracelets. This one in pretty pink and burgundy with touches of trim, lace and bling of course!!

Did you know that there are ONLY 12 weeks until Christmas?!?!?! A good time to start your shopping and squirrel away those gifts way ahead of time. Then you can enjoy the delightful parts of the season instead of battling it out at the mall!!

I am starting my shopping this week at my favorite local independently owned stores and on etsy!!
