Gabbi you always remind me of the side of LA that I forget about. Love it, and need to explore more. I love the vintage postcards!!! The necklace is darling!

Leah said...

You amazed with your vintage finds... and those pendants are so lovely.

Literally - everything on sale there is up my retro-alley Gabbi. If you ever hit London, you'll have to get yourself to Spitalfields Mkt and Brick Lane - tons of vintage and new shops side by side. And some great curry houses too.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. And wasn't Elizabeth Taylor such a looker?
I used to play the organ at church, and I got the genius idea to add beats to the hymns... let's just say that didn't go over so well with the Mormons. = )
