Christmas Caravan is MY FAVORITE christmas album to listen to! The Squirrel Nut Zippers are amazing. I love seeing them and I love this album! I couldn't find it anywhere for years and I finally bought it on iTunes. Though I wanted a physical copy. Oh yes, back to the album. SO My favorite song is either "Winter Weather" or "Gift of the Magi" Overall the whole album is really good and isn't very Jesus-y (which I am a fan of.)
Tennessee Ernie Ford "The Best of Christmas" is really that, the best. It is the perfect thing if you are into classic christmas sound. It is full of great songs that Tennessee does amaingly, as usual. My favorite might be his rendition of "White Christmas" I would say pick this one up if you like him, or like a nice classic christmas sound.No Christmas is complete without Elvis's "White Christmas" This is usually the first album to be put on during the christmas season. I love the man, what can I say? My favorite off the album is "Blue Christmas" his version is my favorite christmas song to listen to! It is classic to say the least!
I also have a Johnny Cash one I like. And the ELF soundtrack rocks real hard! There is some great stuff on there. What are your favorites? I know I missed classics.

In my post yesterday I mentioned getting a shirt and slacks for $25. The shirt was $10 and it is soo nice! I wore it today there isn't anything too wrong with it. I think I stained it in one spot(though I'm not sure if I did. It could have been there.) For some reason when I buy vintage i buy a lot of browns. This is just another one on the pile. I need to fix a couple things on the slacks. There are two little holes I didn't see before I bought it and can fix with some fabric cut off the hem behind it. I don't like that they aren't pleated, which I usually prefer, but ther color is nice. I can't wait to go back to Beck's so we can go shopping there again. But I'm bringing more money so I can buy more stuff. Everything was so affordable and in pretty good condition and if it wasn't it was even cheaper.

Graphic By Beck Rustic
So this weekend I spent my time out tward Boston living with my friend Beck and her asshole cat(who I love) Dolemite. I love spending the weekend there. Her home, is exactly that, Home. I get to sleep in the cowboy room. We always do somthing fun like go shopping or watch good movies. This weekend we watched "CRazy Love" which you need to see if you haven't! But the main event of this weekend was of course The Raging Teen's Holiday Hoedown!
I have wanted to go to a Raging Teens show for so long and I finally had the chance so Beck picked me up at work on Friday night and we headed out to her house for a weekend of 50s style fun in Suburban Wonderland. The first thing we did once in her neck of the woods was head to Sonic, because really what else do Beck and I eat? Nothing(is the answer.) After Sonic, which was delicious, we headed to the house to hang out with Dolemite and watch movies. As I said we watched "Crazy Love" which was amazing but half way through we were so tired we paused it for the night.
The next morning Beck and I finished the craziness that is "Crazy Love" then decided to pick out clothes for the show and then go shopping. I had never been to the Garment DIstrict so Beck decided we had to. Well I am more than happy we went there. They had a great men's vintage section. I got some trousers(with a few fixable flaws) and a nice shirt from the 50s for $25. Ill post pictures of them later. From there we went to Sonic again. We love it there, but we hate their music. We went home and decided we should get ready for that night so I played domestic godess and did all the ironing and picking out of clothes for the night then we watched somee Beyonce music videos and headed out.(Now if you are questioning why We would EVER want to watch Beyonce videos the answer is, we love a good drag show.)
The show was amazing as expected. I met some great people I hope to see aagin in the near future. After the show we trugged our way through the snow to the car(on the top level of the parking garage, unprotected from the elements) and made our way to the nice warm house for more movie watching. "The Girl Can't Help It" was the choice of the evening. Wel got tired and finished the movie in the morning again. And after watching Jayne Mansfield biography we watched "Pillow Talk"(which there was very little actual pillow talk but a lot of Doris Day being a shrew) After that we headed back to Western Mass. Now I sit here in my, not cowboy room not in suburban wonderland, and hate being back in the real world.

So this is one of the lamps. They are green with gold spots. The Fiberglass shades really take the cake. The two of the shades are well worth the $20 so I knew they were worth buying, working or not.
These are my two record scores. My favorite Johnny Cash song "ballad of a Teenage Queen" and from Annette Funicello's Hawaiianette "Pineapple Princess" I got them for ten cents each.
To say the least it was an amazing day of thrifting. We are doing it again in a couple weeks. I hope to find more treasures. Yesterday I got my 1940s wool coat in so I will post about that soon. It is AMAING! I love it! Now I just can't wait for it to get colder!!!

You can see a few of my collected items. Like my 1950s Zenith and blond end table. I love putting together sets for shoots. I couldn't find an alluminum tree to use(one that I could afford that is. They go for about $200 around here) I'll post pictures of the girls I shot(there were 6) but I wanted to intorduce myself a little.
I'm 18. I live in Massachusetts. I've collected vintage and dressed in vintage for about 4 years.(I haven't changed my hair in four years, haha) I have recently jumped into the pinup world, as a photographer (though I know those photos might say "next Big Pinup Model") I'm working on making myself a studio so I can do it on the side to make money, but more to keep me happy.
I've made some great vintage purchases lately I will post a picture once my camera battery isn't dead. SO Tomorrow.
