A Tulsan's Treasure Trove

With much pleasure, I introduce to you to...


From the moment I first read this young lady's comments in our teams chat threads I knew I had to create a featured post here to share a little more about her.  My problem was, I didn't really know her?  I waited and waited, like a cougar waiting to pounce on it's prey.  To take my first "victim" interviewee in hopes that folks might be inspired by this wonderful gal and her love for all that is vintage.  So, today I pounced and was so relieved she didn't tell me to take a hike, lol.

Liz is the owner and operator of the Etsy vintage goods shop

and the "academy award nominee" film extra in the Hitchcock film...

Liz says....
"I loved dressing up for Halloween!"

Ready to hop on her Harley, here's the rough and tumble "Biker Chick."

I hope her feature will not only entertain you, but keep you spell bound and on the edge of your seat!  Hahaha!  Here's just a little about her, the gal behind the scenes.  Enjoy.

What prompted you to open up a vintage shop on Etsy?

 "I have always loved selling, and I've always loved vintage. I decided to sell on Etsy because it's important to me to have an identifiable brand and my own shop."

Won't you need a mascot for that brand Liz?

I love all that you sell.  Do you have a personal favorite?

"My favorite item is no longer in my shop. It was a darling troll doll that hit me with waves of nostalgia."

He's absolutely adorable and I love his "Einstein" hairdo!

What inspires you about vintage goods?

"What inspires me about vintage is the thrill of the hunt, both in looking for the unique and...

in the research involved in learning about the identity and history of a vintage item."

What is your favorite vintage piece you currently own?

"My favorite piece of vintage that I own would have to be a quilt that my Grandmother made me before she died."

I hope one day you'll share that quilt with us here.

What is your favorite genre of music?

"I don't have a favorite genre.  If I'm working on art, it's 1940's love songs...

If I'm driving around town, it's country music....

Liz captured a shot of this wonderful vintage Caddy that was being sold at an estate sale she attended.

Cleaning house need opera....

A mezzo soprano dusting, I love it!

and when I'm working on Etsy,
has to be quiet so I can concentrate."

Which is your all time favorite big screen movie?

"My favorite big screen movie is an old one...

Gone With The Wind.

With that handsome rogue Clark Gable...

the beautiful..Vivien Leigh...

and here's a picture of Clark and I when we dated."

A dashing couple I say, dashing indeed!  LOL!!

Let's talk chow, what's your all-time favorite food?

"My favorite food is fried chicken, hands down!  I've loved it since I was a little girl"
Yumm Yummy Liz!  To not love fried chicken would be uncivilized!

Is there anything in your life that you've love to do that you haven't done yet?

"Yes, I have never finished or published a novel.  I'd like to do that.
I have three in the works, but there's just not enough time in the day to do all I want to do."

Let's talk pets, do you have a preference, dogs or cats, or other?

"I have no pets now, but have had 16 different pets since I was 1 year old! I think I prefer dogs because they're so needy. I love a critter who unabashedly adores me and doesn't mind being smothered with kisses! However, my favorite was a Manx cat named Stubby. He loved affection."


Who would you choose...
Batman or Superman?

"Neither, I choose Scottish Jamie on Outlander!"

Ladies, can ya blame her?

I hope you'll stop by Liz' marvelous shop...

and have a browse of over 10 pages of wonderful vintage finds.  I just know she'll be happy you did!

To Liz, for your participation, willingness, and most of all, your graciousness in working with me to create this feature, Thank You!

Liz and her Mr. Man

I've Got Just One Thing...

This charm I bring here to you,
In hopes that today will come true,
That your day is filled with much luck
and your pockets be filled with big bucks
But If that's not the case as to be,
Then for you is the next best of things,
That your iphones are filled with Cha-Chings!

Lucky Charm Brooch 1950's

Happy St. Patrick's Day Teamies!!!

March-ing Into Spring

Celebrating March and the coming of spring, lends to the anticipation of so many things.  What is that you look forward to?  I love that March winds blow away Winter's chill and the sound of the songbird does give to mornings fill.

 Sharing with you this week are a few quotes and writings about Spring and the month of March.  Following are some of the wonderful Etsy shops that comprise Team Vintage Vertigo along with some of their lovely vintage goods.  We hope you enjoy the read and browse...

"I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high o'er vales and hills, when all at one I saw a crowd, a host, of golden Daffodils, beside the lake, beneath the trees.  Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."

William Wordsworth

"Then you should say what you mean, the March Hare went on.  "I do", Alice hastily replied, at least, at least I mean what I say-that's the same thing, you know."

                                                           Lewis Carroll


brings to mind the writings of M. Romero LaFlamme...

"The sun is brilliant in the sky but it's warmth does not reach my face.  The breeze stirs the trees, but leaves my hair unmoved.  The cooling rain will feed the grass but will not slake my thirst.  It is all inches away, but further from me than my dreams."

"Each leaf, each blade of grass vies for attention.  Even weeds carry tiny blossoms to astonish us."

Marianne Poloskey   

"The air is like a butterfly with frail blue wings.  The happy earth looks at the sky and sings."

Joyce Kilmer

"St. Patrick's Day will soon be here you see.  We'll pick some Shamrocks, one, two, and three.  We'll count the leaves and look them over, and maybe find a four-leafed clover.  I'll sew green buttons on my vest, green for St. Patrick is the best.  I'll wear a green hat, very high, and dance a jig--at least I'll try!"

"The March wind roars like a lion in the sky, and makes us shiver as he passes by.  When winds are soft and the days are warm and clear, just like a gentle lamb, then spring is here."

"March is a Tomboy with tousled hair, a mischievous smile,

mud on her shoes and a laugh in her voice."
