Southwest Lindyfest, videos

Here’s a video of mine and Kevin’s teacher performance.

It’s under 2 minutes, but that was the best I was able to muster after Bronchitis. The steroids and inhaler I was using really, really helped. Thanks doc!!!

I recently found Etsy and fell in love with the site. I spent HOURS on it my first night and now regularly check to see what’s new in the world of handmade goods. It’s ridiculous what you can find there.

Recently I’ve been geeking out on fascinator. Ok fine, longer than just recently, more like since I started hanging out with Sharon Davis who is a burlesque star, business woman extraordinaire, website creator, photoshop wiz, lindy hopper, and a bonafide Aussie. Oh yeah, and a style icon. So she has some rad looking head gear and I wanted a piece of the action! After hours of perusing the world wide web, I found some mad-pretty things on Etsy.

VintageBox1947, otherwise known as Nina (but not that Nina), creates feather and flower fascinators. Her stuff is absolutely gorgeous!!! Here are some of my personal favorites:

black-feathered-swag cream-swag-fascinator hot-rod-fascinator FLAPPER GIRL HEADBAND WITH PEACOCK FEATHERS Teal Feather Fascinator with black and diamond glass stones Pure White two sided faux pearl head dress with Swarovski Crystals

Lots more stuff on her Etsy site so go take a look. They are very reasonably priced and they ship super quickly. I reccent received the beautiful fascinator and I absolutely love it! If you’ve ever thought about buying one, you should buy one from Nina. Great service, fast shipping, and a great gal to boot!! These badboys will run you between $20-$45.
