Pretty Things That Make Me Happy

My new obsession for the" L" home...Mercury Glass. Though, it has to be the perfect chippy, mercury look.

Tokyo Friends!

I finally got the picture out of my messages!

The boutique guys from Tokyo mentioned in my last blog....

The cutie pie in the back, with glasses on and the "news cap" was the owner whom was loving our industrial cart and intrigued that I was so obsessed with Hello Kitty!
Love making new friends, especially Japanese friends that give us so much love!

Love her =)

My inspiration of the week. She is industrial yet romantic...I don't think I will ever be able to kick my love for industrial decor.

Not to be bitter or anything dramatic...we HAD the most beautiful warehouse cart from circa 1950's and how did I not take a picture of her!?
She now has a home in Tokyo, Japan where she will be the star of a trendy boutique (I can only guess she will be piled high with vintage Levis and the latest trends of Tokyo). I was staring at the men discuss their vision with deep concentration and hand movement for 15 minutes before they made a decision - so fun!! 
I also have a picture of those Japanese boutique owners which is being held captive on my fancy little phone...picture gods are frowning on me! So sad!

Till the next inspiration...
Hug it out! XOXO

I love moss!

Here is a little patch I found in my backyard! Please do not burst my bubble and tell me its something different =) hee hee, thank you! Ignorance is bliss in this little case!

I'm a huge lover of anything cement...and anything cement that has moss growing on it. One of the dealers we ran across in Alameda had beautiful statuary with moss covering each piece. I was in love! 

My little dogs (Frank and Min Min) and I walk everyday and here are some places I run across that have given me a new breath and inspiration. I love to stop and snap a pic!

Blogging has been a bit hard for me this New Year (I have no clue why) so I am making a vow to myself to be better about sharing beautiful things that I get to experience through Lolo's and my little Glam days. 
I also want to start a separate blog that explores my passions outside of business like my deep passion for fashion, fashion, and more fashion. I am setting very lofty goals here: be more dedicated to my biz blog while starting a new one...we'll see! I'm hopeful! 

Lolo's will be at Rose Bowl this Sunday so please stop by and give a hug!

Thankful for so much!!

Linebarger Horse Stables in Spangle, WA
(outside of Spokane)

Spending Thanksgiving in Spokane, WA with my hubby's family and adjusting to the freezing cold weather! I have never been in weather below 50 degrees F so imagine my shock when we walk out of the airport (me on my cell, of course) in zero degree weather! It hurt my lungs it was so chilly! Though, I will admit the clean, crisp, freezing air was refreshing and new! Happy Thanksgiving in the snow!

The Glam Girls have been hustlin' booty this fall season working on new product and Christmas cheer! Markets have been keeping us busy and creative, alongside searching for new venues to attend and explore. I  will be better about posting our latest greatest adventures this winter!

Today I am thankful for my amazing business partner and little midge, my Mom. It is amazing to me the balance of creativity and business sense we each bring to the table. We constantly remind each other to be true to what we love and create for us. We started this little glam business for the pure excitement of seeing beauty in rust and spending our work days together! I am so thankful for this plan and path!

When I return to warmer weather I will post some pics of new product and the fun we've been having! I am so thankful for this little glam business and the beauty that it brings!

Next weekend we will be shopping Alameda Market and supporting our TATTERED GIRLS who have a booth there! So excited! 

Lots of thankful JuJu! Love this life and my job!

New Month!!

Hong Kong has really messed up my internal clock! No excuses, I need to bust out the camera  and update my little blog!!! 

MeeMa has been gone up north and I have been "crafting" away for our Christmas product. Not being a crafty girl, this has really pushed my metal limits but many good things have come from it and it is only November 1 =) 

Many great things to come for the shabby glam girls =) Getting ready for Lolo's Ventura, Ca, market this Sunday the 7th and also my 1 yr wedding anniversary!! I would have never guessed I would be up to my elbows in rust and burlap a year after marrying the most amazing man in the world!!!

Yeah November =) Love it!!

It's been a minute......

It's been a minute.....
My hubby and I were in Honk Kong on vaca for 9 days then a bright and early day at the Pasadena Rose Bowl for our usual 2nd Sunday of every month. For anyone who was there you know how stinkin' hot it was! 
Though it is always worth it to see our returning fans and the new bright stars like Micheal who walked away with our beloved-chippy wood bowling pins (my personal favorites). Towards the end of the afternoon we were getting goofy from the heat and my husband was giving the on-goers free shade with his golf umbrella! It was a site to see and laugh about! 
If anything, he taught me to loosen-up and have some fun...bust that giv'a damn - who cares!
More fun to come from the Glam Girls...
