Lead East!

Yesterday it was off to Lead East, the huge car show in Parsippany. We had a great time cruising the car through the show, wandering around and having a brew.


Friend Mike and daughter Madison came up to stroll around with us for awhile and we ran into Professor Ouch as well! Lot's of other folks Skeetie grew up with were at the show and we found my Dad's friend Don's wicked chopped Merc but couldn't find Don anywhere!


There were so many unique cars! Lots of Rats, too, our very faves. It was brutally hot & humid after having been so perfect for so long. It had actually poured through the night so we were relieved that Saturday turned out to be clear.


I found some awesome stuff including a great vintage dress by 'It's Martini Time' and a wicked hat from Evil Brand Clothing.

After melting in the sun for hours we headed over to Arthur's in Morris Plains for a wonderful dinner.


As we pulled into the driveway the skies opened up one last time and we dried off the car and then just dropped from exhaustion.

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone! Love, tink xoxo

A CHILL in the air!

It is SO autumn like already in the mornings! These are the days you hate to get out from under the covers. Turtlenecks (unfortunately) are back in order! The weekend was a true fall-like one! Brisk & clear I went to the GoodGuys East Coast Nationals car show on Sunday up in Rhinebeck. It was a perfect weather day and was the largest show I've seen! That was also the first I hit the autumn farm stands! The mums were glorious! The sweet Jersey corn was amazing and all the homemade jarred goods. yum. Rat Fink Ink is in the peeling stage but feels fabulous and will be all healed by the weekend, I think.




Have a perfect day~ hugs out~ Tink

Summer Weekend Magic!

Oh what a perfect Summer weekend! It was HOT but not unbearably humid and Friday I had a half a day and went over to see my bud Ox at Jinx Proof Tattoo in Montclair! He worked another splendid piece on me and I just love it!



Yesterday Skeetie & I went to the Whiskey Cafe car show and walked around for a couple of hours taking in all the fabulous cars and chatting with the owners. Then headed over to Cheeseburger in Paradise for dinner. It was another perfect night and we just had a magical time.
Today whilst Skeet worked in the basement, I was off on a shopping venture stopping first at a great little car show up at Demarest Farms picking up some of their Pecan Raisin bread then on to Christmas Tree Shops up on Rt 59 where I bought a bunch of fun stuff including a new leather journal, pirate pencils (lol, for designing future tattoos), a fun new flag for the house and a vintage tin sign for Skeet's garage. From there we headed to the Yankee Candle shop where all the awesome new autumn scents were out. I grabbed a jar of Fall Festival, some Autumn Woods tea lights and Purr-chouli votives (very sweet, with a black cat on the label).



After that we headed to Piermont on the Hudson River and shopped the little boutiques over there. I was able to grab a pair of Cydwoq handmade sandals for 140 bucks! That is like 1/2 of what they go for. I was thrilled. They were 40% off and I just love the fit & feel of Cydwoqs. There is nothing like them! From there we hit Boondocks, the Environmental Boutique where I got some Pine Tar soap and Indian incense including my fave Nag Champa along with Geet Govind. I also picked up a great "Wheel O' Wisdom" from another little odd boutique there.



After Piermont we went to Nyack to the River Club for a fabulous lunch on the river. Skeet stopped his endless work on the garage/basement for long enough to go over to a car show in Whippany and I was happy for him to have a break after working non stop all this past week.

Now I am having a Magic Hat Hocus Pocus brew and getting ready to look at the Sturgis Live-cam to see if I can spot some of our friends that are out there for the bike event.

Such a magical weekend. I hate for it to end!! Hope yours was as magical~ Peace~Tink
