I've been shooting a lot of pinups lately so I thought I might share a few of my favorites.

Tops Off Barbershop

I have been working on a new venture over the past few months. A vintage, "rat pack" inspired barbershop opened in our city recently and the owner asked me to offer pinup photos to clients in the shop once a month. We are calling it "The Tops Off Pinup Experience". Below are a few links to news stories about it. I'm pretty excited!

Our new look.

We are very excited with the new color. The original was a nice yellow, but it had begun chipping and was SUPER dirty. The door was brown with white plastic designs on it. We went with an era-appropriate taupe, black door and of course kept the original mid century lighting. After adding the floating house numbers we called it a day.

House numbers were a special order through Home Depot and we went with Behr paint/primer in one. It took one full weekend and about $300 for Brent and I to do it all ourselves.

Lots of new goodies!

I am such a slacker. I apologize and beg forgiveness. We have had quite the year. Lots of good and bad happenings, but finally back to the good ol' blog.

So...what's new? Well, we painted the house, hung new floating house numbers, hit some great flea markets all over Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. We have been super busy doing pin up modeling shoots, and we bought lots of new vintage goodies to share with you.

Because we have so many new things to talk about I will spread them out over the next few weeks.


Some of you may or may not know I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 150 pounds. Well, I am going in the day after tomorrow (Sept. 22nd) to have my plastic surgeries to fix all the yucky skin. Blah.

This healing period will leave me with plenty of time to blog for you. Woohoo.

Be gone snow. Be gone!

It is March and I am hoping; neigh, praying that we see the last of this years snow. I am ready to plant some spring flowers, get some fresh air, and just get out of the house in general. Bring on the good weather, flea markets, and estate sales!!!

We took this picture of Brent and I last night at our church's volunteer banquet. Brent and I work the nursery at church and get to take care of all the little babies. FUN!
