Musical Monday: Beach Blanket Bingo

Musical Mondays are back! I have done Beach Blanket Bingo before, but it is one of my favorite movies, and it's perfect timing for summer. Here are some more musical clips, since I couldn't include all of them before.

The Thrift Store Gods Were On My Side Today

I usually do most of my shopping at thrift stores, but finding actual vintage is pretty rare. Today I found a great pill box hat, and my favorite style of old lady earrings! There was also a great 1950s style dress that was my size! Plus it was teal, which is probably one of the best colors ever. I seem to find the best stuff when I decide to go thrifting on a whim. Isn't that how it always works though?

I'm being haunted by teacups that come in threes

All the cute teacup "sets" I've found recently have come in threes. I'm pretty OCD, so from now on I'm going to have to only buy them in threes just to keep things "even."

Interesting tip for doing victory rolls...

Apparently when my Grandma did her hair in victory rolls, her and her friends rolled their hair up with tampons, and just pinned them in with the rest of their hair. I have not tried doing my hair in victory rolls in the first place, let alone with tampons, so I can't give any pointers more specific than that, but it sounds logical to me.

Busy Busy Busy

My poor neglected blog! I've been super busy with work and going out, so I haven't had much time to post about anything! These are thrift store/vintage store finds that I have bought recently:

1940s/50s shirt. I LOVE the color, pattern, and the buttons:

A modern sweater with a vintage look:

An old makeup compact. I don't wear makeup, but I cleaned it out and use it as hand mirror:
