   May is just around the corner & also happens to be my birthday month! I kind of love my birthday & I don't really know why.. I always have!  I think this will be my new motto for everyday....


 I love having a spring birthday! I pretty sure this would be the perfect skirt for my birthday celebrations!

I am pretty sure the cake with the deer on it would be the BEST birthday cake ever.. not too mention the cutest! I do have a small vintage deer collection so of course I fell in love with it right away!
(I am not sure of the original photo credit)

  I was on the salt water sandals band wagon waaay before they started popping up all over the blogging world! ;) They are soo cute, comfy & come in such fun colors (I already have tan & navy). I have bought myself a new pair for the last few years for my birthday.. this year it is YELLOW! :)

What I am wearing.... how to mix vintage & handmade!

Happy Friday everyone! Here is a cute little outfit I put together that is available at my shop right now! ;) I am wearing a cute blue vintage cardigan.. a sundress handmade by Brilliant Stranger made of vintage fabric, a floral belt borrowed from another vintage dress in my shop & a felt flower hair clip handmade by me! All photos were taken by Laurie Marie Photography !

The A line sundress can be made more flattering simply by adding a fun belt, I borrowed a cute vintage floral belt off of another dress that is for sale in my shop! I like to mix patterns! :)

I am wearing this dress with tights.. but it would be super cute in warmer weather with some fun sandals! This entire look can be purchased for around $50. (not including the belt)

I have been sooo busy sewing up a storm.. there are now 8 wrap skirts at my shop & lots of new spring accessories! Stop by the shop & see what is new!

Shop hours are 10-6 today! xoxo!

Spring wrap skirts are here!

I have been busy sewing up new spring skirts when I can. :) I have sooo many new fabrics to play with as well as vintage fabrics which make each skirt unique! I love the lemon yellow vintage fabric I used for the waist band on this skirt!
I love the vintage/modern feel of this skirt made up of reproduction prints!
This skirt screams spring/summer picnic to me.. with its cute orange gingham waist band & floral print.
All of my wrap skirts are one of a kind, one size fits most as well as all fabrics are prewashed & dried. (no patterns used,they are my own design) Shop hours are 10-6 today! I have been busy making up lots of new spring accessories, adding lots of new vintage & getting ready to put out some really cute vintage sandals at the shop. Have a great day! xo!

What I am wearing ... vintage nerdy chic!

Happy good Friday & Easter weekend! My good friend Laurie of Laurie Marie Photography has been kind enough to photograph my weekly wears! I am excited about my new blog feature.. the new weekly wears posts will be made up mostly of clothing/accessories that are available for purchase at my shop.

The idea behind this new feature is to show you how to wear vintage & handmade! I know alot of people struggle with making vintage look current & not like a costume! ;)

This picture makes me laugh.. my son who is almost 9 makes this face all the time! Hmmm.. I wonder where he gets that from!

I love this photo of the pink vintage typewriter at my shop! I couldn't leave it out!

What I am wearing.. Vintage men's nerd glasses, vintage pink top, vintage red wrap skirt, handmade (crochet) headband by Tizzy dee & black vintage shoes! The complete outfit including shoes, headband & glasses is under $100.00!

I hope you enjoyed the new feature! P.S. Craft Saturday is tomorrow from 10-4! Come & make spring wreaths with us or rosette headbands! (first come, first serve & while supplies last)

Happy Easter weekend!! xo!
