How I do my hair!

Hello everyone!
Since it has been a while since I've done a post about my personal vintage style, I thought I should do another post on my hair and how I set it. Especially because it is a bit different from the last hair post I did; my hair is longer than it was and I am using 1¼" pink rollers, rather than 1" black ones.
I didn't use any products other than Pantene shampoo & conditioner and Tresemme hairspray.

I rolled them all backward.

If you have an idea of how you want your hair to look, keep in mind it may have ideas of it's own. If it's being temperamental, just let it do what it wants and work with it.
When I like the way a wave or curl is moving, I hold it with a clip and spray.
Then I remove the clip when the hairspray is dry or when I'm finished styling.
And done!
Happy rolling!


Dalton Flea Market

This past weekend my family and I went to the Dalton Flea & Farmer's Market in Dalton, WI!

This was the second time we've been to this particular event 
and we always bring home some great finds.

I think it was a rather large turnout compared to earlier this year, which meant more great stuff to see and new people to meet!

They had great music, featuring a fabulous singer wearing 
a scarf in her hair with rockabilly bumper bangs!

Here is what we bought:

Calico Fruit pattern bowl

Book of Tennyson's poems

Vintage Watkins Ginger tin

Basket and miscellaneous clothes

Tiny white basket and violet bunch pin

French plate by Haviland & Co.

Little toy trucks my brother got

We also bought some old photos, metal cookie cutters, 
rubber stamps, a brooch and a stone french bulldog statue.
It was a great day in Dalton!
