I seem to have found a bit of mojo when it comes to stamping. I did lose it for awhile and the thought of bothering with nail art was just too tiresome. We renovated the house, which lasted for 6 months, and my nails became too messed up to worry about. As a result, ideas left my brain and my skills evaporated. But I really am trying to get motivated again and spend more time with my nails.
I did this gradient with Ulta3 Pale Dahlia and Essence Off to Miami. I need a dotting tool as my freehand white dots are terrible! The glitter is Sally Hansen Big Money. Finished with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

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
Shoes: Miss L Fire
Hair Flowers: Dynamite-darling, eBay
Bakelite: Here, there and Everywhere

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 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??
