Making Jewellery, Bakelite, Flowers and Trashy Diva


I made this necklace!  I had a handful of old Bakelite blobs, dice, blocks and shapes I got with an auction lot a long time ago.  I had plans of making them into a chunky bracelet so I drilled holes through the lot.  After making a bracelet, it really didn't look fabulous so I took it apart, wired them onto headpins and made a 40's style cha-cha necklace instead.  Much nicer, yes?


It matched nicely with my Trashy Diva Walk in the Park dress.  I added platform Miss L Fire shoes, warm tights, a cardi and lots of flowers.



Isn't Bakelite divine?
 
Dress: Trashy Diva
Cardi: Modcloth

The Flash! Nails with Dead Set Babes Decals


The first episode of the new series of The Flash was on TV a couple of weeks ago!  Altho not a huge Comic book fan, Flash Gordon and The Flash are my favourites.  So when Dead Set Babes started selling Lightning decals.....I knew I had to purchase them immediately.


The base is Color Club Almost Famous, Red is OPI's Over and Over a-Gwen, ring finger is Dead Set Babes Zap Bang Pow glitter and middle finger glitter is Sally Hansen's Cha Ching.

A Long Weekend Snagging Thrifty Bargains!

 
Recently we holiday'd at the beach....beach in Winter makes for lots of vintage hunting...cause you can't go to the beach.  So we found some goodies!


A plethora of kitschy crap!  Including puppies on leashes, Cat biscuit barrels, creepy clown shakers and squirrels!


1930's Japan ugly face tea set, minus a few pieces.


A massive West German pottery floor vase in gorgeous drip glaze colors.  I am so in love with German 60's pottery, especially the bold color pieces.


A job lot of 50's Nally Ware harlequin canisters I purchased to sell on....as I have enough of my own.


And this may just look like a pink bowl, but it's a 1940's Sunbeam mixer bowl for the pink mixer.  These bowls sell for big money with one recently going for $140 on eBay.  I snagged this one for $10 in an Op Shop.

What bargains have you guys snagged??
