I stopped by the Tipsy Tango in Quinlan, TX a few days ago. It's one of my favorite places for vintage finds. Every time I go in there it looks like a completely different store.
This time it was full of vintage mannequins, wedding gowns and other curiosities.
Here's a cool vanity. I'm kind of fond of shabby chic/cottage style decor.
And a dresser.
I did get this wire folding screen. I think I'm going to use it as part of an earring display. It folds completely flat. I swear I can't get one more thing in my car when I'm traveling to shows unless it will fold up really small. That's Pawlie Newman checking it out. Anyone want some rosemary? I have a very overgrown hedge there in the background that I really need to dig up...someday.
I also got these two lamp shade frames. I like them just how they are--it's kind of an industrial look. I think I'm going to get a metal lamp kit and stick an interesting looking bulb in them and use them just like that in my studio. I found the frames in the shop next door to Tipsy Tango and I have unfortunately forgotten their name.
My studio mannequin--I'm still deciding on a name for her--needed a new hand because all her fingers were broken off when I got her. So I got this one.
I would show a picture of her with her new part but she doesn't have any clothes yet, poor girl. Yes, I know, I'm a bad mannequin mother. You can see she's getting a bit testy about the clothing situation.
Oh, don't forget I have a giveaway going for the new book Craft Activism. Post a comment on the post previous to this one for a chance to win. Good luck!
