3 ways to wear Vintage scarves!

I love wearing vintage scarves! I thought it would be fun to share some vintage DIY's with you on my blog. Here is one that I have shared before. I Love vintage scarves, not only are they super pretty.. I have yet to ever find two alike & they are usually very affordable.

I have several for sale at my shop AT ONLY $6 ea. Did you know that we carry hand selected vintage clothing & accessories! It is one of my FAVORITE things about my new shop. I love vintage as much as I love handmade.

I am wearing a vintage scarf in my hair today, just tie it in a not on the top of your head & tuck in the sides.. super easy & very stylish. It looks great with short hair, long hair or great for when you are growing your hair out like me!

I have a few longer scarves that would be so cute for the upcoming Fall season tied around your neck like an ascot tie or layer a few like shown below...

& if you can find one that fits your body right try wearing one as a belt over a vintage dress. Soooo cute!

I have lots of pretty scarves available in my shop! My shop hours today are 11-5! I have sooo many new things.. stop on by! :)

p.s. there is a giveaway below! Don't forget to leave your comments for a chance to win a pretty vintage clutch filled with handmade goodness!

Have a great day! xo!

a little bit of this & that...

Well I had a different type of blog post for today.. but um blogger doesn't want to upload anymore pics I guess!

I had a busy..busy weekend, first the Appleton market (Appleton was spared the rain on saturday morning & it turned out to be a beautiful morning) then I was at the Summer Craftacular in Madison selling my wares. Thank you to everyone for showing dainty daisies so much LOVE this weekend!

I stayed at my parents house Sunday night in Sauk Prairie where I grew up & I got to do a little thrifting the next day with my older sister.

I got this ADORABLE owl clock.. which YES is hanging in my dining room right now!

& this vinyl.. actually I bought quite a few, Blondie, the BEST of zz top, Elton John, & a few others! My gosh how did I live without this??? I could listen to Stevie Wonder all day.. well actually I have been! ;) I think the best part is it was $4. & it is like new!

I also bought lots of vintage clothing, some vintage shoes, dishes & a vintage typewriter that will be heading to my shop soon!

I will have some sneek peaks when blogger decides to cooperate! ;)

Have a great day! xo!

Happy 1st Birthday Dexter!!!

Happy Birthday Dexter! We got Dexter in October as a surprise for my daughter's 11th birthday! He is a pug/Mi-ki mix!

He is quite naughty.. he likes to chew on my 1950's vintage chair.. flip flops & small objects! It is sometimes like having a baby all over again!

This pic. is from the day we brought him home...

He was eyeing up the tree at my old shop! Lol! I do have one of him chewing on it too!

They really are best friends! Buster is my 8 yr old yellow lab! They snuggle all the time!! It is the cutest thing ever! Dexter also gets Buster running around & playing by biting at Busters tail then running away.. it is so funny & cute!

Dexter loves to snuggle.. whines when I go down stairs (he won't go down stairs) eats really fast.. loves to chew & his new things is he LOOOOVES walks.. he also will go outside just to get a treat (not go potty, just go outside)! I can't imagine life without my little smushy face.. aka mushy.. aka mush mush! Lol! We do call him all those names & he does answer to mushy! :)

Happy Birthday Dexter!! xoxo!
