Panchita Plays Lotteria

The Happy Homemaker Tag Along Swap is into the third month and it’ posting day…Here at Riverside Studios  Panchita is all dressed up with no place to go…yet…I’m a bit behind on my tags this month and so I’ll post later, but here’s a hint:Panchita will be all decked out in a traditional sequined falda and sombrero…but poor thing, she’s got to wait until I can get to embellishing and staging the tag. She is such a good sport as she holds the pose with a big sonrisa on her face until I get back to her.

She plans an evening of Mexican Bingo called Lotteria with her friends….It’s played with picture cards that are very colorful…Sorry for the delay, but life got in the way this week.

I am sure Panchetta is a patient lady and will wait gracefully. Eager to see who wins lotteria.

The suspense is killing me! I wait for your tags with baited breath! I love your theme, and so enjoy each month's tag. Thank you for hanging in there with me! Elizabeth

Your tags are definitely worth waiting for. It seems like a lot of people were running behind this month, including me. Let's blame February for having only 28 days! I'll be back...

Well I'm sure you'll come up with the rest of the tag soon. I was in fact making mine the day before and feel I just wasn't into it this time and I'm not happy with my tag.

Hi dear!
I think Panchita es muy chulita!! I remember playing loteria with my grandparents. He always hid the cards with the topless mermaid!

Hugs,
Deanna :D

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Milk Glass Collection
Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

Mexicana Dishes
My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.

I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

Vintage Kitchen Hutch
When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

Nancy made me save the vine
The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
