Yeah, the lack of picture posting has sort of killed my "reveal each day from Kansas Mood..." Im at my sisters place using her computer so we can have pictures.
I got several things,
the first 2 seasons of I love Lucy,
Im also Sooooo thrilled that for 2010 my house is "IN" 100% just look at Targets spring/ summer color pallet!
Can I pick em' or what?! AND i'll have you know I picked my colors 4 years ago. Target you may thank me at any time, haha.
A few days later I learned "Good things come to those who, take freezing walks to off the road antique stores."
Way down the road from where I was staying was this old antique shop. Being on the hunt for a Starburst Clock, vowing to scower all of Kansas to find this clock I thought it was worth a shot... I go and and the proprietress informs me that she does not have such a clock, that she specializes in "Victorian and Early American pieces". However after the FREEZING walk I was not going away empty handed... 2 rows over I spot these beauties in ALL there 1950's Glory!
Yup a whole set of 8 with the gold carrier! Just like the 2 from Joyland, I tried VERY hard not to let my eyes pop out of socket and asked how much? The Lady says $28 I said "How about $25?" and Just like that they were mine!
In other news,
Carmen Miranda has Found her Place High atop Radio City....well my radio console anyway. Haha!
And Today I hit the MOTHER LOAD of 45' records!
In the basement of an antique store, There was a dusty Rubbermaid bucket FULL of 45's My friend that was looking around Whit me kept looking but I sat on the floor and started going through them, in the first pile I found the 8 that I bought!!!
Here's What I found.
"Hello Mary Lou"/"Travelin' Man" -Ricky Nelson
"Waitn' in school"/ "Stood Up"- Ricky Nelson
"Teenage Idol"/"I've got my eyes on you"-Ricky Nelson
"Runaway"/Jody" - Del Shannon
"The Battle of New Orleans"/"All for the love of a girl"-Johnny Horton
"Short Shorts" / "Planet Rock"-Royal Teens
"A White Sport Coat" / "Grown Up tears"
"When I get through with you" / "Imagine That"- Patsy Cline
Picking these out I was thinking 'this guys gonna charge me an arm and a leg', I get up to the counter and (I must admit I play dirty... I put the B-sides up)
and he charges me a WHOLE $5.00 for all 8!!!! It was my lucky day!
Well in the near future There will be a big reveal about the Den and bedroom, were almost finished! Until I get my lap top and this 'picture' problem figured out i'll have to keep bribing my sister.
