Roses are red, the weekends are to short....

Hubby surprised me this morning with a big bouquet of roses. Today we are having our first wedding anniversery. :) And we are still happy together. ;)
I've stolen his facebook-profile photo. It is an old one. Made by The Pixeleye. It was at I believe Saints and Sinners in Belgium. Best part was that Ruud, a good friend of Marcel, who is normaly living in Canada sent Marcel a mail with the question if we were at a hotrod-show. We made the Hotrod-Rebelz magazine in America/Canada. :D  Don't we look cute. ;)
This weekend is way to short. So many things to do, so little time. I really go work harder to find another job, which gives me some more time to spent on other things.
On friday, hubby picked me up from my work and we went to a trift-store close to my job. I found some nice bowls and cookingbooks and I started to go to the cash desk when hubby called me back to the clothes....
There was an extreme creepy bag lying in one of the display-cabinets. I was afraid to touch it. But it was very old. Maybe 30ties.... or 20ties..... But I collect them and this was a one time chance for a very cheap price.... Meet my little crocodile-bag..... It still got his teeth and is now standing in our cabinet. :)
And yes I know it isn't nice to make a bag out of an animal, but this was a 1 time chance..... So please forgive me. I'm a big animal lover!
 That same day, hubbie showed me a photo of a hairdressers table. From the 40ties. It was standing on a sale-site in Belgium. Hubbie had made an offer long time ago and already forgot about it, when he recieved a mail from the guy. It was oke and we could pick it up. So yesterday we went to pick it up. We had to drive 2 time's because it did't fit in the car. Photo is from hubbie's facebook. I was standing in the back holding the above thingy on the table. This baby will come in our new bedroom someday..... I hope.....
Now we are going to enjoy our afternoon with sweetiepie's Kirsten and Walter. We didn't see them in a long time. (But thanks to facebook we kept in contact) We are going to have some home-made veggie canneloni and creme brulee. Yum. But your really have to check out Kirsten's page. She is really one of the most sweetest people I've ever met and she sells beautifull jewelery.
Silly Charms
Hope you will enjoy it.
Hugs and Kissis and a wonderfull day for everybody! xx

It's my party and I cry if I want to, cry if I want to...

No need to cry! I've had a lovely birthday!
The week started with snow! A lot of snow, to much snow. It was awfull to drive. It took us two and a half hour to get home from work. And we already don't have a lot of time in the evening because of our long working-days.... I was glad when it was thursday. It was my birthday! I had to work that day, and I really have some amazing colleague's. They made me a little crown and I didn't take it off till we got home. Hubby was a bit ashamed sitting next to me in the car. :) I didn't care. I was happy with my crown. 
It is not my real age..... but what doesn't know, doesn't care..... ;)
Hubby got me some real sweet presents. I love to cook and I got already some great cookbooks from him, but now I finally got A Vintage Tea Party. Such a lovely book. And he got some more fun cookbooks for me. 
I am big collecter and user of vintage photocamera's. And hubby found a lovely old tin can and sign from Agfa. It will fit perfectly in my collection. I love them. 
And I may pick some great pink plastic flamingo's for our the garden. There were to many differend kinds of flamingo's so we are going to choose together.
Because of the snow overhere I've bought myself a nice warm pair of vintage goat-hair boots. Already got a pair of black boots, but these were white and I could get them for a fair price.... So this was a nice present for myself. :) And so warm in the snow!
The party is in the summer, when we can have a lovely garden party with a bbq. Now only some good friends and family showed up saturday and it was lovely. 
On friday we went to Belgium to a guy who sells secondhand stuff. Hubby found a strange medical cabinet and I found some little girl dresses, who I couldn't leave behind..... How cute are they.....
And for now, I am going to enjoy our fire place in the living-room. It is cold and snowing outside and it feels like I am having the flu or so. But first a lovely photo of me and the doggie's this morning. Lola loves the snow and is running like hell in the snow. Flos hates it and rather stayed inside in front of the fire place, just like me. :)
Hugs and kissis!

Pink is the color of passion....

Yeah, I collored my hair and it went wrong....again....... It was red in the book and I had hubby to check it for me as he bought them for me in the city were he works. When I put it on it had a funny color already, but it could have been te light.... When I washed i,t it was dark-pink. On the photo is doesn't look that terrible, but when I step out in the bright day-light. Yeah.
Bad photo of me and my new hair. Not good in taking photo's of myself and with hubby walking the dog....
I will survive it. :)
This week was very hectic. The big pick-up broke down and we had to get it back to the garage. It all turned out oke, but I didn't get enough sleep this week. It was work, pick up, work, garage, bleh.
On friday we had a day off. Hubby's parents were married for 50 years and we went out to an open air museum to celebrate it. They break down old houses and build them up again at the park, so you can see how the people lived years ago. It was lovely. In the main building was a place with and old candy-store, barber and more. Only thing I was interested in was a gorgeous dress....
They put it behind glass...... It was so lovely....
 Other good thing was that I tested my new and some old bracelets yesterday and last week I bought my first bakalite bracelet for 50cents! We did the smelling test. Hold them under hot water and smell..... It was a yuk chemical smell.... I am so happy.
It is one lying in the front. They others are galalite and plastic. :)
Yeah a short one today. I going to have diner and walk the doggie's. Have a wonderfull week for all of you!
Hughs and kissis,

Happy New Year!

To all my beloved readers, Happy New Year and may all your dreams come true! xx
My newyear started pretty good. I've had an appointment with my dentist. There was a very little brown spot on one of my front teeth.... It was a very little hole. So I've got a new filling this morning. :D
We are having 2 weeks off from work and a week and a half are already gone by. When we have days off it feels like we are more busy then we are working. We did a lot off fun things. Got sweet visitors over and I did something that will stay with me for my whole live. (My facebookfriends already seen it) I will show you when I have a good photo off it. ;) Last week we went on a few secondhand trips. We visited a lot of secondhand/triftstores and I found way to much nice stuff. But first one off the x-mas presents I've got from my hubby. I collect vintage camera's. Not everything, only the funny one's and Russian and former DDR cam's. He got me (next to a great vest, beautifull book about vintage shoes, bags and stuff and a Le Creuset cooking pot) a "new" in box 3D camera. Still have to try it. Maybe I will take this afternoon with me on our trip....
In the little stores we found way to much nice stuff. Old panty's that I never will wear, but loved for the image on the bags.
A lovely set of glasses with a jar, and some sweet little teaglasses. The blue light is from my x-mas deco. :)
 I've found the most amazing dresses and a beautifull raincoat, and one shop was selling a complete shoestore with new shoes, for only 10 euro a pair. I loved the ones with the retro-look and 4 pair came home with me.
Sorry for bad quality of the photo's.
I have 2 best finds this time. Found this great partydress that was maybe worn once. It is to long for me, but with one of my new platform shoes.... :) I am so in love with it.....
In one store I found a dress from my favorite designer, Guy Laroche. And only for 3,25 euro! I was freaking out! Normaly they are way to expensive for me. I found a 2 piece suit in France 2 years ago for only 10 euro's. It is to small for me but maybe it will fit one day..... The black dress is the one I just found... <3 The 2 piece is hanging next to it and on the other side my new raincoat. 
Also found a never worn (tickets are still hanging on it) 80ties C&A dress who I love to wear to a carmeeting. It has this lovely 50ties look.
And a home-made dress that was so cute. It is a very old one, and got some perspiration stains below the armpits, but I loved it.
And a lovely photo off me after a day shopping. My hair is a mess but I don't mind! (It is now also red again)
Funny thing is that the dress I was wearing that day, comes from the same shop as the photo was taken.
Now I am going to say goodbey to you all and I will pop by! I am going to enjoy my afternoon with some more shopping, looking for another car, and going to visit my beloved Dodge who still isn't at home.....
Hugs and Kissis!
