Just added new items to my Etsy shop!


I just added a few new items to my Etsy shop!  Check out these great vintage beauties!!  As always, I hope to offer vintage at an affordable price, but feel free to make an offer if you're looking to spend less than I'm asking!

Vintage Sheets

Last week while at the local thrift shop, I found some really neat vintage sheets, but wasn't sure whether or not they should come home with me.  I love the pictures I've seen all over the web lately of quilts made of vintage sheets.  You know the ones I'm talking about...

But, I don't have that kind of patience.  I just don't think quilting is something I will ever attempt... I like quick and painless!!

Wellllllll.........  the sheets came home with us despite this fact.  And, I'm kind of liking the idea of just keeping them as sheets.  Maybe for bedding, but maybe I'll take a page from this lady's book... check out how cute this is! 

"Take a sheet, Grab a seat"!  I love it!!  Maybe I'll collect some great vintage sheets for outdoor movie nights.  We've been mulling over the idea of buying a projector to watch movies against our barn when the weather warms up again- how perfect would this "take a sheet" idea be for inviting over friends and having a relaxing evening on the lawn?
Remember!!  I'm running a sale on some of the most popular items in my etsy shop!  Take a look, and if you see something you like that isn't on sale, just shoot me a message and I'm sure we can work something out :)  Thanks!

Old Disney Movies

A couple days ago, I found a VHS copy of Pollyanna while at our local thrift store.  Score!


Really? you ask.  Really!!  I absolutely love old live action Disney movies from the 50's/60's/70's!  No, I didn't grow up with Hayley Mills- I'm a product of 1987- oh but don't I wish!  Just the same, I grew up watching the old Disney movies- the original Parent Trap, Swiss Family Robinson, The Absent Minded Professor, That Darn Cat!, The Love Bug, The Million Dollar Duck, No Deposit No Return, The Apple Dumpling Gang, Escape to Witch Mountain, etc. 

Does anyone else remember these movies?  Oh what fond memories I have of family movie nights spent on the family room floor, a chocolate malt in one hand, and a homemade dough pretzel in the other!  So, between the $1 price tag, and the overwhelming nostalgia, I just couldn't pass up dear Pollyanna! 

I sat down yesterday and watched Pollyanna during nap time, and it didn't disappoint!!  So sweet, so uplifting, just the kind of movie I want my little one to watch when she's old enough to enjoy movies.  A really beautiful message about the power of positive thinking and how a little bit of sunshine can benefit others. 

And, now I'm on the lookout for more classic live action Disney movies.  How much I'd love to watch more of these classic movies once again!

Hi There!

I've been away from  blogging for quite some time, but I'm back and excited to share some new pet projects.

Since being gone, I've opened an Etsy shop and I'm super excited to share it with you.  I LOVE seeing children dressed in vintage clothes, as you may already know, and am always on the lookout for pieces to add to my daughter's wardrobe.  I'm always running into pieces that won't fit my baby, but I hate leaving them behind, just the same. 

Sooo.... I've begun picking them up and putting them in my shop !  Vintage clothes can get pretty expensive, as I well know, so I'm striving to offer my finds at super reasonable prices. 

Please check out my shop and stay tuned for new finds and other fun stuff!
