Ringing in the New Year...

I have 1 hour left of my 2011. I have been home ALL DAY and am grunging it up in yoga pants and a football shirt! *lol* Anyhow I wanted my New Years Eve to be special so I called up some friends and invited them over....

The Sparkling Champagne was to die for!!
And then my friends arrived. I made sure to have a few decorations. Some flowers and candle light. They were all pretty impressed and told me this was the best party they have ever attended.

Below is the group shot!

*Woohoo* *yay* *Hooray*

My Christmas Day

Mr. Coco and I

Jersey and I
(We bought him the big fuzzy star pillow for Christmas.)

Jersey seems to love Christmas, he also opens his own presents. Once his were done he tried taking OTHER PEOPLES! *LOL*
(It was quite cute)

I bought these for my Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas.


My Mom bought me footie onesie pj's *LOL* I rather like them.

I was SOOO SURPRISED when I opened this from the Mr. C

He seems to have a short memory and most things I say... "He forgets"


But apparently a couple months back when I mentioned I would like to get the Dior Cherie perfume he put a note in his cell.

I was soooooo Excited when I opened it.

I also got a fleece leopard pj set. I love them immensely and am wearing them as I write this. I went boxing day shopping today, but I will tell you a little more about that next post.

Hope you are all enjoying your Holiday Season!

Merry Christmas to all

It's Christmas eve and Santa will be here within hours. I had a pretty relaxing day. On Christmas eve we have a tradition to have Chinese food since on Christmas there will be plenty of cooking. The two previous years we ordered in, this year we went to the restaurant. I am stuffed to the brim and watching some t.v. with Mr. Coco.

I don't have an amazing amount of vintage Christmas balls. Hopefully by next Christmas I will have a few dozen more. But I love the ones I did find a couple weeks back.

*Hehehe* I could not resist this Gremlin decoration.

What's that green thing on the left?



The manicure I gave myself (which got lots of compliments from random strangers.) *lol*

I went out all decked to the halls in red and green.

Hope you are all enjoying this Holiday Season!

Recentley Thrifted & Happy Holidays

"Can't stop the obsession with the FAUX FUR!!"

I found this one on Sunday whilst visiting dollar tag sale day at one of my local thrifts. I like to pay ten or under for my faux fur coats... but sometimes I am willing to splurge a little more. I paid twenty for this one.

See the yellow gingham curtain in my door window? I found that for $1.99

(It makes me happy)

$1.79 for this Mamselle M brooch

*Woohoo Moconut*

$2.79 for this pineapple necklace

$3.25 for this Thistle Brooch.
(I bought this for one of my Mom's friends who is Scottish)

Found these little rascals this afternoon $0.50 cents each... The little deers were prancing all through the gifts under the tree and getting tangled in tinsel and ribbon. They like to eat candy canes and light bulbs.

Funky Men's clip-on tie $0.99

LOL I dunno but when I saw it ... it was a HAVE to have situation $0.99

$0.50 for this Syrup dispenser... I think this is one of the nicest I have came across so far.

Striking a pose

I bet you didn't know Jersey was at my feet... he thought he was going to be in the pics too. *lol*

I can't leave him out


I picked up these guys for $5 and wrapped them up for Mr. Loo for Christmas. heheh I can't wait till he opens them.

I bought this mirror this afternoon from Salvation Army for $3

I will post more purchases soon. I am getting a little behind. Even thought my blog posting has slowed a little... my thrift shopping has not.

Coconut Giveaway Contest Winner is....

All entries were put inside my super cute & sweet cookie jar

(That might have been my first mistake)

With 15 entries in total, they were then swished around like a whirlwind with my hand!

Then it was Mr.s job to take the photos... and I don't know if he just didn't let the camera adjust properly or is the Christmas tree lights were making everything wonky... but the pics turned out a little blurry.

*With chosen entry in hand*


"WHAT THE HELL does that say?"

Congratulations Vintage Sweetheart!

Of course the cookie jar would have chosen the sweetest entry.

Em please E-mail me your shipping info.

"Next time I will draw from my Kitchen Sink and I bet the winner would be someone named "Dishpan Sally". *hehe

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

You win you win you win

Frock on Friday & Recently thrifted


So this above photo of me sorta looks like I am smoking...

But I can assure you I am only blowing fluffy pieces of whatever the heck the plant is seen behind me... Why?? I dunno I felt the urge too and followed through.

(Maybe I should have just not explained anything at all)


So here is my Frock

It was thrifted last weekend. I paid about $0.60 cents for it.

The inside tag is so faded it is barely readable... but finally I made out that it said Jillian. (It sort of reminds me of a dress Edith would wear)

I have been watching episodes of (All in the family) like a crazy woman. And I am always lusting after Edith Bunkers dresses

(Now they really aren't anything extravagent or amazing... just cute house dresses)

But I still love them. This one is my favorite so far!

(Maybe because it's green and checkered)

*AHHHH it's COLD out here, the water behind me is frozen*

But this post is about the dress... so if I come down with a cold I am blaming all of you.

Now for some recent thrift finds

$0.99 Salvation army

This blanket is made out of wool yarn and its quite heavy.

Anyone know what sort of stitch it is?

My new (to me) sewing basket *SCREAAAM*

That's pretty much what I did when I saw it on the shelf at Salvation Army.

I paid $2.00 for this beauty

I have a small round sewing basket like this that I got for free from a garage sale.

It is not the most pretty and had some issues... This one is twice the size and I will be able to fit SO MUCH MORE in it.

Below are two little flocked cuties I also found the same time as everything else.

*Awwww* Red Mice

Mr. Coco (DID NOT) think they were cute... He wasn't very ecstatic I was purchasing them. So I said "Well Hon I cannot leave two little orphaned mice without a home on Christmas"


$0.50 cents each

Alright see that GIANT gold tinsel ball?? It's about 2 feet across in size.

I am pretty sure it was part of a vintage Christmas Mall display or something.

I paid $1.99 for it. Then didn't know how the heck I was gonna hang it (Because a Tack totally wouldn't cut it) ... So we screwed a lovely hook in the ceiling and VOILA


I find it *ENchanting*

I purchased 2 of these electric window candles for $0.99 cents each.

I have my years where I am not excited about Christmas at all and years where I am absolutely thrilled. This year.....

I am THRILLED! So you all are just gonna have to put up with the bits of Christmas in my posts.

I hope you do not mind.


P.s. My previous post is a Giveaway so if you missed it.. go take a gander and if your interested in participating leave me a comment.

Thank you to all who have followed my weird little blog.
