Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! The Rose Bowl and Tournament of Roses Parade are one of my favorite NY traditions, particularly because they’re local, my love of football, and I used to decorate floats for a number of years. The Junior Rose Bowl is a thing of history now, but Miss JRB sure looks adorable.
A very big thank you to everyone who’s commented, liked, followed, or quietly read this site during the year. I immensely appreciate it. Cheers to 2013!
This month’s Rose Bowl Flea finds:
Row 1// Oversize MLB posters// Baseball board game
Row 2// Vintage UCLA cap for a small fan// “Nike” rings, anyone?
Row 3// Vintage ice skates & strap-on skates// A serious archery set. Those arrows were no joke.
Row 4// The ultimate OJ Simpson fan collection// LA Rams signage
+ Stocking up. + Family cookie painting.
+ Celebrating Independence with s’mores. + Getty architecture.
+ Purging old magazines. + A morning message.
+ I made an afternoon trip to the Getty Museum to see a few of the latest exhibits and for general inspiration. Some of those images will be shared later in the week.
+ At one point, I owned nearly every single issue of Teen Vogue. I’m still in the process of recycling them (going through 2005-2006 issues currently), and it’s such a kick to see how much has changed in less than a decade.
+ Visited the Rose Bowl Flea, again, yesterday. Darn hot out there!
+ Anyone watch Wimbledon? Stoked with the singles’ outcome.

+ Spent a good portion of Sunday at the Rose Bowl Flea. I didn’t make any purchases, but did take some photos of sports-related items that I’ll share later this week.
+ The NFL is taking a high fashion approach to up female viewership. WWD reports here.
+ Anyone catch the Mad Men finale? What do you think?
