I’m looking forward to continuing this Blast from the Past series for-ev-er….there is so much out there that I miss, and as I age the list of rad things that used-to-be will continue to grow. Ah the memories.

A few games I hope you will remember (and hopefully some you still play!):

Every little girl's favorite game ❤

THE original mystery game.

So fun!... even if I sucked at it.

Survivial of the hungriest!

I STILL play this game religiously.

Set up for this game took longer than playtime, haha.

The 80's will never die.

Ta ta for now.

At the beginning of the month I celebrated my one-year (dating) anniversary with my more than amazing boyfriend, Brad. He had mentioned staying at a unique place in Southern Arizona that he once passed through knowing I would love it for its vintage charm. I was more than thrilled to check it out. We ended up at the most amazing boutique motel Arizona has to offer, The Shady Dell. It was a complete vintage paradise, and such a memorable experience. Every thing about this place, down to every detail and hidden surprise, was incredible. Located in Bisbee, Arizona, The Shady Dell lets you experience the 1950’s in full technicolor. It is a collection of vintage travel trailers, perfectly restored to combine mid-century Americana kitsch with the comforts of home in a way that only the 1950’s were capable of.

We had the opportunity to stay inside the “Tiki Bus”, such a good choice!










Every detail about this place was so perfect. The soundtrack: classic 50’s music and vintage commericals. Plus hidden treasures everywhere. The drawers were filled with vintage photos, vintage games, vintage cookware, vintage records, vintage magazines and even vintage coozies, as seen on my beer to the right:


And we cant forget about my favorite little vintage cup:


We had a ton of fun playing croquet in the courtyard, playing on vintage trucks, AND the little row-boat on the side of the Tiki Bus:



AND we played dolls and got a little ridiculous with our tiki dashboard accessories. She is such a little floozy, showing us her goodies. Hehehe.


Night view of our Tiki Love Bus:



To make this place even MORE wonderful, there is a little vintage diner, Dot’s Diner, located on-site. We had breakfast there…DELISH. And the personalities at Dot’s are amazing. I want our sweet little waitress to serve us breakfast everyday.



Dot’s Lingo was pretty amusing too:


A few more images of vintage heaven that I could not forget to share….




We are thinking of shooting an editorial here for Butter Toast, how unbelievably perfect would it be??

So, I’m a huge hat person. I basically wear one everyday. And lately, it’s been the same one because I’m semi-obsessed with it right now. I HATE to do my hair, and it’s becoming increasingly harder to find the time to do to it anyway….so simple fix: HAT. One of my favorite VINTAGE hat-wearing starlets currently is Sienna Miller. I like her style all around, but her hat obsession is probably my favorite. Enjoy the photos lovelies, xox.








Ciao for now.

I am recently becoming obsessed with birds in fashion. Bird nests, bird cages, bird prints, bird silhouettes…you name it. I came across these images that I thought were so amazing I wanted to share them. I’m thinking we definitely we need to incorporate a bird nest hairstyle in the upcoming fashion show. I’ve also been collecting some great images of antique bird cages…you can look for a blog about those soon :]

I had the most amazing vintage find the other day. Clearly, I stopped in my tracks when I saw the adorable floral pattern- that right there was enough to persuade me to purchase- but the inside held a far greater treasure! A matching thermos! So, what I thought was merely a classic vintage handbag, turned out to be the CUTEST lunch box of all time. It is by far my favorite vintage find lately. It will be for sale at Butter Toast Boutique in a couple days.
