A Keepsake for a Friend

My friend Karen loves all things vintage like me so naturally she wanted an heirloom necklace too. She sent me this amazing picture of her parents from way back in the day and I created her a one of a kind keepsake she'll always treasure. These are on sale in my Etsy shop:

I love vintage photos. They are full of history and a life once full of hope and love. When I see pictures at a thrift store or flea market I always wonder about the stories behind the pictures. If  a photo "speaks" to me then I adopt it and they become one of my many ancestors! My family thinks I'm crazy for hanging strangers pictures on my wall, but once I adopt them I create a life and memories for them.

Latest Additions to the Shop

The week after Christmas is the saddest time of the year for me, all the hype of the season is over and I'm always sad. I took all the Christmas stuff home that didnt sell and decided to give the shop a new look.

Love this wine bottle! The wine was yummy too! (Stella Rosa) 

A New Year

So I go to bed at 3AM New Year's Day, fully intending to sleep in, but I was up at 8:00?? Who does that? So I put my insomnia to good use and got crafty! Everything will be in the shop tomorrow!
