Heat Wave Style

I am loving this heat wave. Call me crazy but hot and humid is my favorite kind of weather.
This weekend I'm craving margaritas, ice cream, and some antiquing. 

vintage porcelain plates: 10 o'clock crafting:

Inspiration struck me late this evening and I've been up hand lettering these for the Etsy shop.
They will be up soon! I'm loving the contrast between the letters and the victorian feeling plates.
What do ya think?

mantiques: father's day gift ideas

I am totally guilty of leaving gift giving to the last minute these days, regardless of the holiday or occasion. I swear I will get ahead of the game eventually. This Father's Day I am planning to give my Dad something old and a little bit rustic.

Recently I have heard the term "MANtiques" being thrown around in conversation, and these Etsy finds live up the phrase. Give Dad a piece of nostalgia this holiday.

esty updates

We are always on the hunt for new great pieces for our Etsy Store.
And I love sharing our new findings, the stories behind them and our visions for their use.
Here are some of our lovely new additions.I love how low maintenance air plants are and these little planters make displaying them effortless.

Dream catchers were huge when I was a kid, and they are totally making a comeback. This vintage necklace is the perfect summer accessory.

There's always a running list in my head of pieces I am on the hunt for.
This weekend I am looking for pops of color for my apartment.

What are you all on the hunt for?

antiquing uniform

I'm already on the prowl for outfit inspiration for the weekend. Style and comfort are key when I'm running in and out of my favorite antique spots. The outfits I put together on the weekends are always my favorites. These looks make me want to sip coffee, listen to some Tammy Wynette, and go
on the hunt for some treasures.

Check out my pinterest board for more style inspiration.

the color purple

It happens all the time, I find myself wandering through antique and consignment stores looking for treasures and my eye gets stuck on one color. The past couple of weeks its been purple. I cannot seem to get enough of this hue! I picked up this perfect vintage trinket box over the weekend.

Check out our new tins in the shop.
