New Vintage Shop...

Well, I just have to talk about a new shop that has opened on Etsy.... 
It's called "Romantically Vintage" and if you LOVE things vintage, shabby chic and with whimsical charm, you will LOVE this shop... So many beautiful pieces, some hand sewn, some beaded, but all are put together carefully with well thought design....
Things for your home, things for you to wear and all with a vintage shabby chic feel.... My kind of pretty :) 

Did I mention she's my Mom? lol...

And it's about time she opened up shop on etsy. This lady has impeccable taste, true love for all things vintage, romantic, whimsical and unique and I am so glad that she is finally sharing her talent with everyone else! Am I biased?.... yes, but you will see why :) I know that there isn't anything that she didn't put 100% into. She's been doing this for years and this is definitely her niche. 

Well, she's just opening up shop, and slowly adding things (she has plenty more to come, but with satellite, it makes it hard and a little slower to upload photos)....  So if you like her style, be sure to bookmark her! It would be really awesome for us fellow Etsian's to give her a heart.... remember when we were all starting out and how exciting it was when we saw one! And how about for whoever gives her shop a heart AND let's me know that they did (email me your name, your etsy name, and if you marked an item with a heart, what item it was to will be entered to win a set of Christmas tags?!

Okay, enough with the talking, how about a few photos!!!!!

Okay, There are a few things for you to wear.... All with romantic charm.... How about a few things for your home too?! .....

"such a lovely piece to put anywhere in your home....i painted the seashells a gorgeous metallic lilac color to give it a nice sheen...i painted the shells twice on each side....then i filled up this wonderful jar and displayed an old fashioned romantic velvet spray of flowers...i attached tea stained lace to give it that romantic look...."

And I just LOVE the fact that they're silk velvet.... not the cheap stuff! 

Okay, you'll have to check out the rest of her stuff here:

And for a thank you bonus for stopping by her shop and for taking a look at her beautiful things,
here are two free printable altered mason jars..... 

And Remember.... 
whoever gives her shop or item a heart AND let's me know that they did (email me your name, your etsy name, and if an item to will be entered to win a set of Christmas tags?!

Vintage Halloween Postcard

Have A Jolly Halloween.... An Old Vintage Postcard... I have had this image for a very long time, when I first started collecting things, and I can't remember where I got it from, but I figured now would be a good time to share it and a few different variations as well :)
