Our new *old* very old typewriter!

Look at this fun antique typewriter we got. I was at my friend Tammy's house on Friday night hand picking furniture for the shop & she had this old typewriter in her dining room. Tammy runs back porch gatherings and finds cute vintage, shabby chic flea market type fun fun stuff... mostly furniture. I will be selling her amazing finds at my new shop and the cool thing is they will double as display furniture! Her house is like a magazine. I was seriously in heaven! Well back to the typewriter.. Jada saw the typewriter and asked about it. I really didn't think too much of it until we got home and realized it is just like her American girl doll Kit's Typewriter (no wonder she wanted it) so I called up Tammy and being the awesome person she is, it was waiting at my backdoor when I got home this afternoon. It needs a good cleaning and doesn't work to great, but the kids are having a BLAST playing with it! :)

New pics of the shop coming soon! I was sooo busy cleaning up and putting shelves together I ran out of time to take pics! I hear I have created a buzz and people are really excited that I have decided to re-open! Plus the shop looks ADORABLE just the way I have been imagining it!

I am dying.....

Slips of course! (LOL!) for the new shop. I have always liked slips, but not the colors and as I get older I have been feeling the need to wear them under certain clothing items! I looove the one in the pic. It is hot pink! Yay for hot pink! I also did some in tangerine and a pretty green!

I am sooo trying to stay busy until I can get into the new shop.. the suspense and waiting is driving me a little crazy! I am waiting on a call from my Landlord and hopefully will be able to get in there next week.

I also did a little more thrifting today (for the shop!)! I looove the wood grain book ends! Soo neat.. I have sooo much more, but I can't show you everything! :)

Have a great weekend!

Vintage finds... and a few new purses!

I had a pretty rough start to my week and was not feeling to great. I am feeling much better today *Thank goodness!* I just posted two new purses in my etsy shop. They both would make such great gifts for valentine's day! The best part is I am offering FREE SHIPPING for the entire month of February on all skirts and purses!
I also thought I would play catch up with the blog here and post some of my vintage finds... from Monday! These are all for the new store! :)

I wanted to share some cute Valentine's I just bought on Etsy, from a! I just love them and they come as a PDF file so you can print as many as needed! (Picture credits belong to littlebrownpen.)
