1970s Bohemian Crafting Inspiration

11 09 2010

This is my first Vintage Craft Book Review. I have a collection of vintage crafting books which range from DIY furniture, knitting, sewing, quilting and more. I never do these crafts, they are more eye-candy then anything.

Todays Book review : The Stitchery Idea Book by Beverly Rush Copyright 1974

This is actually my favorite book of all of them being that I lean towards 1970s crafts as my ideal.

I have included a few pictures of this 176 Page book which are an example of the tremendous amount of inspiration on a variety of crafts it gives. The book is an idea book not a ‘how-to’ that will inspire you in your crafting ventures.





Sneak Peek and Fresh and Easy Review

10 12 2009

Just finished a shopping spree in Pomona which left me so excited I had to post a Preview of what is to come!

So, after being convinced that I was going to be mugged in the parking lot of the Salvation Army I got my treasures to the car, jumped in and then hauled my booty out of the parking lot. I only venture there rarely as they don’t always carry much good vintage. It’s sad but true… I still heart the Salvation Army Thrift Stores.

Here’s a few peices… I would have added more, but the photos came out pretty bad.

I have about 6 tops, 1 leather jacket and a dress waiting for me to pick up tomorrow… Maybe I’ll do a quick posts so you can see the fruits of my labor.

Part 2: Fresh and Easy Review.

LOVE IT! Why? A few simple reasons: Great packaging of products, they look so appealing to me, They carry Pesto, they clearance out their bread super cheap! I am talking RoseMary Rolls for 65 cents!

Issue: The check out, I was asked 3 times if I needed help working the self-check out scanner so I must really look like a dunce or something. But I did enjoy grouping together the different foods in the bags.

Part 3: Hair Cut on Saturday:

Either

Woo!





Everything is so Black and White

11 10 2008

I tend to see the word in black and white and tend to rely on my logical deduction a little too heavily. It’s not all bad though! Like, I believe that for a person to not notice flowers while walking past them or a variety of colors of leaves on the ground is missing out. Flat out. Or if a person doesn’t look for patterns in the clouds at least once a week or whenever they get to see them if in Southern California…. their life is void of imagination.  One more: No women looks good in spandex. I am not discriminating against the heavier women because I probably have more cellulite then most women out there…. but all women just shouldn’t wear it! Nothing good comes from wearing it!

My New Blog

9 09 2008

This is my new blog. I have started this to keep my clients up to date on upcoming events, sales and also random bits of my life.

Me:

I’m 27

I’m Married (to my HighSchool Sweetie)

I’m addicted to the thrill of the hunt that is vintage shopping

I’m 5’10”

I’m obsessed with cookie dough

I’m in love the tingle of Burts Bees Chapstick and the light freshness that I get from Dove Shampoos

I think that’s enough to get us aquainted.

Please see included photo of what my fantasy life would include…

I wish I was doing this
