Friday Finds

This week I've added some really cute stuff to the shop...Well, at least I think so anyways. So, let's take a peek at some of the new goodies.
A gorgeous vintage 1950's wedding dress. This dress was made by Arden of Campus Bridal, which at the time, was a famous designer.
Darling taupe Swarovski crystal earrings...too cute.

Vintage playing card tags.

A beautiful pair of italian lamps.

And...just in from France...vintage french house numbers.

That was just a short list...there's more goodies still available in the shop. Being it's friday, don't forget to stop off at Make Mine Pinks, Pink Friday and Friday Flea Market too...there's always great stuff to find.
Have a wonderful weekend....Andrea

Cute Craft


Here's a cute craft project that I found while perusing Martha's site.

I gathered the few supplies needed to make this project and my little guy and I went to work. This is such a cute project to do with your little ones because it doesn't require a lot of time and only a little cutting and glue.
Then we typed up some cute Valentine sayings and stuffed them in the cookies. If your looking for some holiday sayings or famous quotes you can visit here to find some. Cute huh?

I also wanted to thank Zita from Mlle Magpie, for this wonderful award...Thanks Zita!

Wintery Whites

I thought since we're in a blizzard watch here...with 50 mile an hour winds...I'd share some of the goodies I found while antiquing last week...seems how this week may not look so good for shopping. The photos all have a beautiful creamy, wintery white look to them that I just love.


Actually, some of these items are going to be available in the shop soon. So, if you see something you like...stay tuned.
Have a beautiful wintery day...Andrea
