    Ok. Now there are no excuses. I am off to my local flea market (or just market as we call them here in Sydney) to add to my collection. Inspired now.

  • merry jennifer Says:

    The blue wig and the green shower cap are great — you could put together some great costumes with those. Great finds!

  • Lisa Says:

    Wow! I’m so jealous. You totally scored.

  • Lisa Milton Says:

    Great finds, even better pictures. I love the one of you in the blue cap – you look so pretty.

  • Meegan Says:

    I am LUSTING over that blue feather wig. Love. It The photo of the pin-up girl’s shapely derriere is nice too. Would look great in my boudoir. Wish I could follow you around one of those flea markets. I always seem to get lost in the sea of crap.

  • Marisa Says:

    I have that Dansk baking dish in brown. It ranks among my top five favorite kitchen items. Excellent score!

    Well, I guess I know what I’m doing on Friday.

  • andee Says:

    The picture of you shooting yourself in the blue wig should be in a magazine. you look amazing and the picture is lovely.

  • Elise Says:

    HA! Love the blue wig as well. You look like you should be modeling jello molds in Sears, circa 1959. :D

  • Ms. Karen Says:

    I. Need. A. Blue. Feather. Wig.


  • mai Says:

    i *heart* both your feather hat and swim cap. i’ve been swimming like mad lately, so i’m particularly partial to that one.

  • Gigi Says:

    How did you get in my mother’s attic?

  • Evolving Revolver Says:

    Okay, you and me baby: we need to bring back HATS. You look GREAT in them, and women just DO NOT wear hats enough anymore. …Ball Caps and Sun Flops DO NOT COUNT.

  • andrea_frets Says:

    I’m so jealous! The feather hat is ten ways of awesome! We don’t have that type of flea market around here. I’m afraid I would only find Elvis paintings, ammunition, and tons of Amish goods (which could be cool).

  • amanda Says:

    Hmm, are those seersucker overalls going to spark another apology to Hank from Bryan?

  • Matthew Says:

    Those glasses can’t be antiques. I still wear that exact pair of glasses. Yep. I’m cool with the ladies.

  • Renee N. Crocker Says:

    Once again I am floored for your photography. Yea….ok, can I be your groupie? /grin

  • Rebecca Says:

    Is “Alameda Antiques Fair” a new snazzy name for the old Alameda flea market? ‘Cause my dad dragged us to that thing every damn weekend. I never once got a Sunday morning to myself and the Shirley Temple movies on Channel 2.

  • Guy Says:

    The shades are very 80’s terminator.

  • superblondgirl Says:

    Why does my local flea market suck? Because I’m jealous and want me some cool new (old) stuff. The flea market here is dusty and filthy and smells of dirty old men and cat piss, and only sells hideous overpriced ceramics and bad homemade candles. It’s actually quite a depressing way to spend a Sunday.

    You have fantastic skin. I hope you understand that my poisonous envy of you is just adherence to policy and nothing personal.
