Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Isn't she sweet? Found her at the sidewalk sale a few weekends ago hidden in a box. Don't be afraid to ask your local stores and dealers if they have broken or damaged items. This dress has several tears and a few stains, as you would expect with its age. She is perfect for those of us who find tears and stains just add more character!
I picked up some lace and trim too. I love the white lace with the red embroidery on the right. Won't that be great for Christmas?
Here is that new lace and trim going through the Rusty Rooster Vintage distressing process. If you like earth tones (you know muddy, slobbery browns) then this process or tool is ideal for you. What you will need: one curious Basset hound, anything new that she hasn't smelled yet, a good sense of humor and willingness to share. Here's how you do it...Buy anything new. Set it down for one second. Basset steals it and exits through doggy door in backyard where she 1) rolls on it 2) chews on it 3) tosses in the air. You then bribe her with a treat to return your newly distressed item. You may want to wash and let air dry. Story of my life...xoxo
