More Pinstriping!

Pinstriping is another love of mine.  I would be happy with pinstripes on just about everything- from my car to my shoes, to my furniture.  I keep tethering between painting my 1957 Savoy black satin, with a red top, and shiny red and black pin stripes (I especially love red spider web pinstripes on flat/satin black!)… or pink.  I think I have decided on going pink for this car because it is my first classic and I want it to be a total “SHE” ride!!  BUT, since I plan on having more classics in the future, I will absolutely have one painted black satin with pinstripes.  I am lucky enough to have a good friend that is a pinstriper and fellow Kustom Kulture, Rockabilly lover- Bear, of Nukesville Kustoms.  I get to see his work often and I love it!  To see more Nukesville Kustoms pinstriping you can check out my previous post   https://rockabellebombshell.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/nukesville-kustoms-pinstriping/ ‎  or find him on Facebook- Nukesville Kustoms by Bear

Oldfashioned Summer Fun!

  Carnivals & The Drive-in

The Drive-in

The excitement and nostalgia of going to a Drive-in or a Carnival makes for the perfect Rockabilly summer fun!  It’s been a few years since I had been to a movie at the Drive-in, so Trevor and I packed up the kids and took them to see the new Batman movie at the Drive-in closest to us in San Luis Obispo, California (about 30 min from our house).  We took Big Red (our truck) and instead of sitting inside the truck, we made a big bed in the back of the truck and watched from the warmth and comfort of our pillows and blankets!

The Carnival

The California Mid-State Fair is held in our city, Paso Robles, and except for the extreme temperatures that come with fair time (95-110+ degrees), it is great family fun! This year we went with one of my sisters and her daughter, my mom, Trevor’s brother, his wife, their two little red head’s, His sister, and her 2 sons!  The kids had hours of fun on the rides, and I had fun winning the cocky cowboy and his wife at the water pistol game!  Many Carnival rides and games stay the same or similar over the years, which is why they create such a happy, nostalgic atmosphere!

Sparkly Vinyl- Rockabilly Nostalgia

HOLDFAST   Rockabilly Handbags

There is something wonderfully nostalgic about sparkly vinyl, whether it’s because it reminds us of 50’s diners or classic cars, it has a way of making us feel connected to the fabulous 50’s (even those of us too young to have enjoyed it)!   HOLDFAST purses and handbags are the perfect daily representation of Rockabilly style and the fabulous 50’s.  Miss Randi, who has an education and background in fashion design and merchandising, created the line when the purse she had started falling apart. She decided to make her own, better contsructed, purse in the style and materials she loves.  Miss Randi loved the result so much she decided to make a few more. The purses where a quick success and the Rockabilly handbag line HOLDFAST was created!  HOLDFAST handbags can also be custom ordered in the colors you want, as well as designs for Psychobilly lovers.

Vintage Wanderlust!

Travel Retro Style!

I love vintage/retro trailers! I’ve been searching and waiting for the perfect retro trailer to come my way.  Retro trailers are the perfect accessory for the Rockabilly Kulture and lifestyle,  and there are so many I would love to have- I will probably end up with a collection, but my FAVORITE has to be the 1963 Shasta!  Shasta’s have the little retro wings on the back, which makes them extra appealing and extra retro.  The first time I saw an old vintage trailer with the retro paint job and the rounded back end- my eyes bugged out of my head and I gasped with excitement, it was love at first site!  Of coarse pink is my favorite, but red comes in close 2nd, and I like the pastel blues…. so like I said- I will probably end up with a large collection.  I personally prefer to have buy a retro trailer that needs to be restored on the inside because I have to have it furnished and decorated “my retro way”, and when I find that special one that is “meant to be” my FIRST I will post the pictures and share all the before and after pictures.  I can’t wait to have my little vintage, retro decorated trailer and join one of the vintage trailer groups (like “Sisters on the Fly”)  and go on group campouts and travel to the annual vintage trailer rally’s- so fun!  For those of you interested in buying on of these retro gems, some of the sites I go to (besides Craigslist) are:   tincantourists.com vintagetrailercrazy.com,  americanclassicsint.com tininntraveltrailers.com,  fletcherstrailersales.com airstreamclassifieds.com,  timelesstraveltrailers.com (does restorations also),  ynotcamperrestoration.com (does restorations also).  Here are a few links to groups of vintage trailer loving people with serious wanderlust, vintage trailer associations and traveling/camping events and info:   vintagetrailercamp.com  swvca.com (Southwest Vintage Camper Association),   trailerettes.com (women’s group, Northern California),   tincantourists.com  vintageairstreamclub.com, &   sistersonthefly.com.
