What a steal at $120! I go get her tomorrow!
My 50's kitchen vision is coming together!
I CANNOT WAIT to bring her home!

And look at my new prezzie!

A beautiful colourful coffee table book! It's pure 50's goodness!

I'll keep you posted!

Lincoln Beautyware

My WONDERFUL friend Ms. Cupcake, gifted me these
vintage kitchen canisters from Lincoln Beautyware. (circa 1950)

We originally found them on Craigslist
(an absolute must for the vintage, retro, antique lover)
& KNEW they must come home to me as a part of my vintage
50's kitchen re-do!  They are in MINT condition!

Ms. Cupcake was kind enough to go get them and gift them to me! SO sweet!

Oh do they ever look pretty all polished up (thanks to Mr. Cupcake) and next to my new pale lemon walls!

Take a peek! (pics courtesy of Ms. Cupcake)

Pics in their new home soon to come! Thank you Ms. Cupcake!

Take a look at the two dinette's I have my eye on...
love love love the formica & chrome!

I love this set! I love the table but I wonder if it's too much blue??

I also love the 2nd set, I like that it's not all so blue, the white table adds a bit of contrast...

What do you think??? Say tuned!

Hello Sunshine!

Well, the master bedroom re-do may start earlier than anticipated!

I FINALLY got my long sought after bedding...I promised myself I could buy it once I received my tax return...I went to check every few days to make sure it was there! And yesterday was the day!

It's called Hello Sunshine! Here's a sneak peak!

I think it will look just dreamy with my dark brown antique dressers!  Now to pick paint colours! And a headboard of some sort! SHRIEK!

Rocketgirl is alive and well!

Well, it certainly has been a long time since I posted. OOPSY DAISY!

We had a little..ok, we had a MASSIVE upheaval in our life...I think that we have come out on the other side...and I think we will be ok.

It's been a very busy month.  We've moved into a lovely new home that has absolutely NO CHARACTER whatsoever but oodles & oodles of potential.  So I'm pretty excited to get started on it's transformation. 

I'm going totally & utterly retro. Because I can! Gathering ideas, pictures & taking in all the advice from my personal design consultant ;) Ms Cupcake.  I really want a bight cheerful yellow and blue kitchen...circa 1950...can you picture it???

Stay tuned...

Or packed at the very least. 
I hate moving.  Hate packing. 
 Hate packing something I thought I didn't need...
only to have to unpack, and then repack!
Less than 20 days til the big move!

Back in Business!

Well, we weren't OUT of business...just on a lovey little hiatus!

Most of you know that I have a partner in crime, Ms. Cupcake.  Her & I have a sweet little side business called TLC, Tasty Little Confections.

Click the link, check out our TLC blog and see what we got up to this weekend! We had a wedding to do...I think it was my personal fave...of all the orders we have ever much fun!

Gah! I think I just broke my back tooth.  On a carrot.  That's what you get for eating healthy.  A trip to the dentist.  (I need to go anyway...)

It's the middle of the night again.  I'm at work.  All of my patients are asleep.
Truth be told, it's quite peaceful here tonight.  A rarity lately.

SIGH.  I just can't get back into blogging.  The life of Rocketgirl has been turned upside down more times than she can count in the past 4 months. (Why I reverted to the 3rd person there...I simply cannot explain)

I do pop in to follow you all in Blogland.  I would like to make it a regular habit again...blogging used to bring me so much joy! Then again, so did alot of things.  Seems I need to re-learn, re-teach & re-allow myself to enjoy those things again. 

One day at a time. Be well.
