Jem collection update

30 Apr

Finally getting around to organizing my dream room full of 80’s stuff. It is a work in progress, but thanks to how perfect my new Ikea cabinets are.. some of Jem dolls are ready to be shown off in style! More pics to come as the room evolves into something truly outrageous.

Well, It’s been a while.. I’ve got tons and tons of stuff to blog about, and possibly even a new blog to start! I’ve been gone so long, because I’d been busy planning my wedding.

And now I will share with you a quick snap my cousin took of our lovely cake topper. The new hubby and I wanted to really express ourselves.. so what could be more us than a custom “Han and Leia” cake topper made out of vintage figures?!  Han is sporting a ribbon bow-tie and I made Leia a lace cape.

Movin’ on up

Just thought I’d post a quick update. I know, I know I’ve once again neglected my poor blog.. mostly because I’ve recently become addicted to spending time getting my photos situated on Flickr .  Anyways, I will finally be moving in to my new place relatively soon, and I’ve slowly started to make the transition by taking small amounts of stuff over little by little. Well, except for my adventure hauling a mattress up a flight of stairs.. don’t ask.  Naturally, I was concerned about my collectibles, and what was I  to do? load up the car and carry over the Jem dolls by hand, of course. So yep.. there you have it, whats the first thing I move when I’m finally getting established in my own place? Jem dolls! Neccessities people, come on.   The shelves visible in the photo were already there, so I figured they’d be useful as a good spot for displaying at least a small part of my collection of 80s treasures.  Based on that one simple thought, I’ve pretty much concluded that I will tranform that spare room into an all-out totally 80s lounge area / collectibles room / den. More details to come. Expect lots of Pink.. and at least one massive photo of Molly Ringwald.
