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!
Hello, friends! I have scanned a few of my vintage Thanksgiving postcards for you. I love to put these out in flower frogs or hang them from my shutters during the holiday. I hope you can find a good use for them. Maybe a card or tag for a hostess gift? Just right click, save image to your computer and then you will be able to print and use. These are best if printed on cardstock.
I posted these last year too. These are my favorites and I enjoy digging them out each year. I enjoy them almost as much as my mom's stuffing and my mother in law's sweet potatoes.
I hope that each of you has a blessed Thanksgiving and safe travels too. So good to be back in touch. Thank you for your inspiration, your comments and your follows. xoxo
The holiday open houses are starting around town. This one was right down the street at Hidden Treasures. I LOVE this old wooden box. I picture it next to the tree filled with presents.
This little wagon would look great by the front door or on the patio with a tree inside. I've resisted so far. By the way, pictures tonight via the Iphone...not so bad!
Love this lantern! I tried to pick her up for a closer look but she was nice and heavy. My hands were already full. I bet she went home with someone tonight.....I sound catty and jealous don't I?
It is not a holiday open house unless someone breaks a glass ornament, right?! lol There were some really fun ones here and oh so pretty. Fortunately, nothing broken during our visit.
These were hilarious. I can't believe I have not seen these before. Pink flamingos all decked out for Xmas.
And finally, contrary to popular blogger belief...not EVERYTHINGlooks good painted white. I could see those whiskers a mile away! This guy was a hot mess. lol I have seem some really cute ones on Pinterest with glitter and bling. This one looks like the guy at the office Xmas party you try to avoid. Sorry, my "deer."
I'll share my purchases with you soon. Until next time! xoxo
Hello,old friends. I hope we can just pick up where we left off. I've missed you terribly, and I am really looking forward to catching up with you. All is well. My absence has really just been due to a very busy life as a mom, wife, business owner and cheerleader for my kids' sports teams. We go at it seven days a week right now. I've had very little time this year to create and to think artistically. That is okay though. I like being needed. I like living with purpose, and I will look back on my kids teenage years and be glad I invested the time and effort. I may be exhausted at times, like I'm sure you are too, but I'm happy.
Kara and I found ourselves with a Saturday morning free this past weekend. We picked up my mom and headed to Adjectives Vintage Market. This place is a real treat. The owners have a vision to make sure that the vendors are true vintage stylists and artists. Take a look at their dealer list here.
I've been on the lookout for so long for a nice vintage crucifix. I found this perfectly chippy frame too and decided to layer them. I'm loving it so far. Trying to decide if it needs a background? What do you think? Maybe a piece of canvas covered in old sheet music? I have an old hymnal I could use. I would love your thoughts.
I have to admit that it was my trip the store that really convinced me that I needed to get back to my blog. I'm sure many of you have seen pics of the store on other Central Florida bloggers sites. If you haven't, stay tuned. I'll take you on a tour. My creative juices were flowing when I left. Now, I just need to find the time and energy! I have picked up a few fun things recently and will share with you over the next few weeks. I love to share my holidays with you too, so add me to your reading list again. Let's reconnect! Hope all is well. XOXO
