You can get a lot done in two days

 So I finished another dress. It's a 70's apron wrap dress. Reminds me of a Lolita, rockabilly style....polka-dots and white lace. I mixed Nicole's jewelry with my Bakelite buckle umbrella necklace.

More rings made and all one of a kind.

some were cuff links, buttons, pendents that broke, pins. DID I mention I got more of the zodiac cameos. If you want to reserve one just message me on facebook

The Catholic Collection

I still have a hard time parting with my Catholic knick knacks. I have holy cards, Jesus and Mary wall hangings, and charms. I have made some jewelry in the past but it's still so hard to give them up.
Here's some I made in the past that have already sold.

I made this with a broken rosary.

these pendents are in a tin waiting to be made....I just can't let go of them

Some of my artwork. I recently saw the same St.Theresa image in a Curb Your Enthusiasm:season 7, episode. The Jesus head I sold on Etsy, it broke, well that what they said. I have shipped stuff so much and this was the only thing that ever broke! I guess I should have kept it.

These Marys were on my mantel. Now that I moved I have to find a new place for them

Purple Haze

Purple Haze, originally uploaded by PORKCHOP RULES.

Cute Purple Boho dress from the SBCA thrift store only 6 bucks. LION HEAD belt from Sweden, a gift from the ol'man. Ring made by Nicole. Shoes as seen in pervious outfits. I was glad I finally got to wear my lion belt, he gave it to me in December. This outfit is 100% thrifted, even the belt. He said he got at a second hand type store. Oh you can't see it but my bra was thrifted as well.

When I was 16 I went to a thrift store and I became a thriftier. I fell in love with clogs around that time. However as I got older....I changed my style....NOW I have come full circle again and I have come obsessed with clogs again. I love the clunky, chunky, ugly shoes. Here's my clogs, I need more. Even on flickr there are people that have clog fetishes....

I bid on these on eBay, they are made by White Mt.

These were a birthday gift from my lovely partner Nicole of Flaming Hag Folkwear SO amazing and I just adore them, they make lots of noise!!!!

Oh and these!!! So sexy, the details are classic. I blog about these before

I have one more pair that even Nicole got on eBay, they are a tad to big for me but I think if I wear socks they would look OK. They are deadstock, they have a wood heel and maroon colored leather!!!!

shirt-vintage wrangler thrifted
vintage clogs-Pretty Penny Vintage

VINTAGE DRESS made by me

Wow I finally got off my butt and made this. I found this fabric in a ziplock bag, then to my suprise it was dress patteren, already cut and ready to be made. I have had this for two years. All the pieces were there, and there is even a matching handbag! I think this is a seventies pattern, it can be belted or loose. I added the eyelet trim on the bottom and the navy heart dollie. I don't know if I like it or not? The pattern says it's a size 6-8. I feel like I should make more clothes......
