something for everyone

One of my favorite things about Christmas is being able to wrap all those lovely presents. I know, I am such a nerd. But I love and appreciate every¬† little detail that goes into some of my more personal gifts. This year, my friends and I are doing Secret Santa, but I’ve been picking up a few vintage pieces here and there for the last couple of months that I will be giving away as […]

Spent my Saturday running “errands,” but ended up shopping. [¬† I’m hiding my credit card tomorrow. ] I couldn’t resist this beautiful beaded purse from Retropolis to add to my collection of “old lady” handbags. Vintage Dior and Bally quilted purse were gifts. Also picked up some awesome goodies from Half Price. The Cabinet of Natural Wonders and two John James Audubon books all with watercolor illustrations and colored plates. There are some really creepy […]

The place is always packed, especially early in the morning on Saturdays, but there’s always so many things to rummage through and possibly take home. So far, we’ve collected a vintage Coca Cola pitcher, a glass cake stand, some amber jars, and […]

A gooood Saturday well spent through the vintage shops. Some neat finds, all under $20. You can’t tell but this Cheshire cat ring is almost the size of a belt buckle. I love love love it! It reminds me of my fat cat Maggie. And another owl ring for the collection. I like the art deco-ness of this design. (I don’t know why I opted for the Georgi O’Keefe theme for the photo. Guess I […]
