lovely lace

When ever I'm at a sale or antique store I am always on the lookout for lace and trims. This past weekend I hit the mother load of vintage lace. At a local vintage craft store they were selling BAGS of pretty lace. And the ones I got were not bits and pieces, they were yards and yards of each. YUM!

Just look at some of my favorites!!

I have a very hard time saying no....

Beautiful whites and colored lace.

I will be adding vintage lace and trim bundles to my Boutique and Etsy store!!

our coco

I want to introduce you all to my little princess. Here and there I've talked about her, but she is a big part of my husband and mine life at home, that I thought I would show you more of our puppy.

Coco at 4 weeks.

We got her when she was 2 months old, so little and cute, we knew she was the one for us. I wanted a cute name for our new girl, after thinking and thinking of a name, I came up with Coco after Coco Chanel, the designer.

Almost two years later she keeps us entertained, going after animals on t.v. and just by cuddling with us. But she still has her puppy energy and puppy characteristics by getting into the garbage among other things. She's only 8 pounds but she can jump about 4 1/2 foot high.

She always cracks us up and we love her so much, so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of her!

Coco Sign

I made this little sign to go above Coco's food and water dishes. The spot above looked a little bare, so I thought to make a little something for a spot where she spends some time at.

I used acrylic paint, puffy paint, German glass glitter, crepe paper and wooden letters.
I think she'll like her little sign, hopefully not too much and eat it! :)

new items

Recently I made a cute little apron. I am hoping to add another category to the Boutique, Aprons & Accessories. I had so much fun making this one, that I have plans to make many more.

Here is my 1st one I made. It is made out of an old vintage sheet. When I saw the pattern, I immediately thought of how cute it would be as an apron.

On the ties I added vintage buttons on each side.

I added a flower and a button to the side.
This will be in the shop. $15

If you haven't already checked out the new items I added to the store, be sure to check them out here!! I also added a category, Estate Sale with SALE items!!

**this handmade pillow is not in the shop yet, but should be by Saturday. $13**

Vintage silver vase $12

hutch makeover


This past friday when the A.C. man was installing our new air conditioner unit, I had the time to re-vamp my hutch. I swtiched out a lot of different things to give it a fresh look for the rest of the summer.

I changed up the dishes, using my flea market finds and my favorite dishes.

I found this cute blue dish at the public market garage sale yesterday. I put some of my diamond broaches on display.

This cute tea cup stand my Mom gave me. These tea cups are Limoges. I found them a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. I found matching desert plates at the same sale.

I had to leave the cute creamer and sugar on display, added a bird's nest with eggs on his head. The small frame has a hand painted rose design done on velvet.
