About Me

My photo
Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Big Daddy's Antiques

Wow ~ Hello Peeps ~
It's been a while since my last posting, sorry about that. I think this weather
has got me completely off balance. I can't even follow the weather reports
because there 100% WRONG.

Any-Hoot; last week my daughter Samantha and I were 
out in the LA area doing some errands and we finished up relatively early, 
so we decided to locate the antique shop "Big Daddy's Antiques". 
We visited their space at the Rose Bowl Flea Market earlier in the month
and figured it merited a closer look-see.

Called up the 411 in LA and got the address, plugged it into
 the GPS and we were on our way.

This place is too cool.... we went off to explore this huge playground of 
unique antiques & repurpose ideas, on quite the grand scale ~ 





Love these laundry basket lamps

Vintage vaudeville hat

Check out that "ice" 

I got to bring this mannequin home....

Male mannequin torsos 

Great storage...


Gadzooks, this is LA art ~ 

























Had a fun time looking around this huge piece 
of property, the owners are really young and hip, 
and of course have a great sense of style.

If your in the LA or San Francisco area you'll
want to visit "Big Daddy's Antiques"

For me and my treasure finding ~ I'll keep plugging away
at the garage and rummage sales ~ 

Happy Hunting ~ 

Much love to you daily ~
