apron collage

i always feel a bit funny posting about myself, ha!  but, i just finished my latest batch of aprons, and i’m too excited not to share them with you!  they are all reversible and full of spring goodness.  i just love the color palette of them all together.

i had tons of fun making them, i love picking out the fabrics and deciding what to put on each of them.  this time, i was racing against the sunset to get my photos taken.  at 4:45 both of my cameras had died, and yes, somehow i couldn’t find either charger! what?!  so, i ran to my mom’s house, grabbed her camera and got the last of them taken, just before it got too dark.  ah!

oh, and here’s a valentine’s day apron that i just couldn’t fit into the collage!


on a slightly different note, have i mentioned how much i love to go antiquing? i couldn’t think of anything more fun to do on a day off! but, i usually come across these lovely finds and never know what to do with them.  so, in addition to my vintage frames at old renewed, i’ve decided to add vintage finds as well!

this little guy came to me this week, and i thought he was perfect for valentines day! he’s a little mouse-y bank! i’ll be adding more vintage finds as i can, so stay tuned if your a vintage junkie like me!

i hope you enjoy! xoxo, bonnie

i *love vintage holiday greetings.  the sayings on them just make me fall deeper in love with the holidays.  nu vue studio offers affordable reproduction prints ($13 for 8 cards) which makes giving vintage holiday cards a little easier!

i’m totally loving this vintage find.  5gardenias is a collector of everything lovely in my eyes- and she brings such an soft beauty to all of her items.  i get lost just looking at all the photos!

faded prairie

1 :: faded farm pillows 2 :: vintage metal locker 3 :: top hand dairy bottles 4 :: antique spool 5 :: antique barn lantern

this small town girl loves to talk shop, farm life, and inspiration… and how apparent that is in her beautiful shop! faded prairie is where you can see her passion for all things faded, worn & rusted- and where she so whimsically shares her passion for the past and a simpler way of life.

sadie olive vintage shop

left to right :: vintage french clock :: dutch chocolate molds :: vintage rolling pins :: painters brushes :: little red hand mixer :: sugar sacks ::

lately, i’ve been obsessed with everything that is sadie olive. sara duckett is a photographer, graphic designer, boutique owner and most recently- an etsy shop owner.  though her shop’s  motto is ‘one of a kind finds’, sadie olive is in itself- a one of a kind find.  stunning images, beautiful vintage finds, and a blog to die for- have fun roaming around her universe today, you’ll get lost in it all…
