Buying: Vintage Goodies

I have been really into vintage shopping lately and I've found some real treasures!

This is a vintage candy dish I picked up at Consigning Design. I love milk glass and have a very small collection, but I tend to go for the non-traditional pieces. I love the tear-drop trim around the edges.

This is a top I picked up last week from Father and Son. It originally had a handkerchief collar and six too many darts... the bottom was very flouncy. So I took out the darts and removed the collar, then my friend Cydney helped me sew it back together. Thanks Cydney!

This is a cake carrier I bought on Etsy from RetroRubbish. I have lately been somewhat obsessed with the color aqua, so I just had to have this cute carrier and it's kitchy graphics.

Making: 'Architect' Earrings

I spent all Sunday afternoon photographing jewelry for my Etsy shop. These earrings are from my 'Architect' series. More to come...

Living: Short Break

I have wrapped up all the classes I have been taking. I loved attending them, but all that learning is exhausting! For the past 2 months, Monday night was cake night, but tonight I am going to put my feet up and relax. Before too long I will have more to do for Chelsea's wedding, and there's always studying to do for LEED. Until then...

Making: Chelsea + Eric's Invitations

I finally got a chance to finish Chelsea's wedding invitations! This is the sample I printed for her final approval, and if she likes them we will get started on production... 1 down, 99 to go. The tree artwork was privided by my friend (and fellow Etsyan) Kermit. For more of his work, see his blog Drawn Along. (Please forgive the yellow glow. No, I don't live by candlelight - my task lamp has a very yellow bulb.)

Learning: Photography

Last night was the final meeting of my outdoor nature photography class. To close the session we had a photo contest and everyone submitted their best few shots. I didn't win, but I did get very positive feedback from my classmates. Ok, so the last 2 aren't outdoor, or of nature, but I thought they were fun.
