She's A Brick...House.

This is an amazing screenprint! I love the orangey / pink sunset. And the detail of the brick house is stellar. More awesomeness in Bree, Ree's Etsy shop.

New Upcycled Coasters!

It took me a while to get these finished, but I think they're quite cool. I definitely learned that decoupaging takes patience (and wrist stamina).

Ladies, I ask you, what's not to like about these minute, geometric earrings? The hand-drawn chevron pattern and 4 distinctive shades of blue make them a must-have accessory--especially for all you shape-lovers out there.

Rebirth Of Slick.

Vintage Eagle oil can, from Maude and Lola.

There's a fundamental rule in regards to most vintage items: metal is greater than plastic. I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to...

A Pretty Pair.

Vintage glass cream and sugar set, from Wise Apple.

Vintage pairs make me giddy. It's like having two treasures in one! And if you're a picky coffee drinker like me, you can't have your cream without your sugar. And that makes this lovely set perfect!

If you're a fan of pairs, you may also appreciate these mid-century modern salt and pepper shakers, from Tom Laurus Vintage.

Billed, Paid, Shipped, Received.

Vintage rubber stamps, from Treasure Darling.

I love, love, love vintage office equipment and supplies. Everything was made with such purpose back then--much different from their plastic counterparts in today's world.

Faux Bois Beauty.

Vintage GE toaster, from Found Beauty Studio.

I love vintage. And I love vintage toasters. What's not to love about a little faux bois action coupled with a dose of shinny chrome!? And it works too!
