New Arrivals At Etsy

Here are some new ribbon packets that I added to Etsy. So go check them out, and I am off to go work on my Tiara. I finished the first one and decided I so didn't llike it, so this morning I am starting new. Wish me luck!

This pack is awesome, I think it is some of my favorite ribbon yet. It has these lace like edges and it is so delicate and pretty. Check out the detail below, the pictures don't do it any justice, it is just adorable, almost plastic like.

This next one is just a cute pack of fabric ribbon with cool vintage patterns on it.

Happy Tuesday My Friends

Oh today was one of those mornings that I could have just slept in. I had my golf lessons again last night and I am slightly sore. We got to learn our L-Swing which I was totally excited about, so we were supposed to practice the swing first, next practice with a T and then move onto the ball. Well, I was the bad seed and thought I had it down so I was the first one to add a ball, and boy did it feel good to hit that sucker. Anyway so everyone else in class decided they were going to do the ball too, oops well apparently we all still needed to learn just the swing better, tell you the truth it is a somewhat odd way to move your body and not as much fun as I thought, although I love the sound it makes when i wack the ball.

In other news here are the goodies that I sent my ParTea swap buddy Joyce. Joyce look away I know you haven't received this yet and it should so be a surprise.

So anyways Joyce is Down under and I know she likes to scrapbook so I kind of cheated and added in some pretty papers with her package, although who doesn't like to sip Tea and scrapbook so I think it still qualifies. She has some little cuties so I figured they needed their own set so her teacup was safe. So you get the point some goodies for Joyce down under.
Well I am off to work on some well work, doesn't it sound thrilling, all I can think about is Mary Ann relaxing on her summer break I wonder what she is up to today.

Isn't this just the loveliest tiara that you have ever seen? I am so lucky that Karla was my partner. Plus mine came and I am still putting hers together, a little bit of glitter and a little bit of glue. Well anyways, I just wanted to show off this beauty that Karla made, I feel like such a queen I will be wearing this now when I clean.

In other blogging news I finally won on some one's blog, yeah for me, and thanks to Mary Ann, I won some pages from her collection to collage with, right now though I am pouring over them trying to merge them into my brain. Way to much fun, plus did I tell you that I won! so head on over and check out her blog she is hilarious and is currently on summer break. Oh and I will add a picture tomorrow, it's golf night again ladies!

Last not here is some new fun stuff that is in the good old Etsy Store so please check it out, I have been busy trying to make some fun new craft packs, and clearing out some of my antiques, I really need to stop collecting dishes. Either that or get a bigger kitchen! Now that sounds like a plan.

Happy Father's Day

I am one lucky girl, I have the best dad in the world. I was blessed with this guy as a dad and not only for his good looks! He is constantly encouraging me with all of my artistic endeavors, helping me in any way that he can. When I first started with Vintage Recretions, my dad surprised me with an Easy Up Tent. That is just the kind of guy he is, I offered to pay him back for it and he told me it was his way of investing in my business. Even when we found out that the tent doesn't fit in my little car, it's a two door, he has showed up and helped me every show I have, transporting my tent and anything else I can't fit in my car. No matter how early in the morning set up is. Plus he is such a gentleman by helping thers with their tents. He always puts his kids first and has always been there for me, when I am upset, with a flat tire, or any crisis i have. I know I can always count on him to be there even with a sarcastic comment and a smile.

I just want to give a thanks to my dad. Dad you are the greatest and I am so lucky to have you and thank you for everything I wouldn't be the women I am today without you. I can't even thank you enough, geesh I am getting teary eyed, your the best, and I hope I tell you that enough. I love you and thanks for being the best dad, I am so truly blessed to have you in my life!

Goody Bag

I am so excited about this item, i have been working on it for awhile now. I call it the Adult Goodie Bag it was just added to my Etsy store so please head on over and check it out.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's Day! Until next time.

Bad Blogger

So I am finding that I am a terrible blogger. Always forgetting my camera, hence the photo less week this week. Forgetting to post, sometimes I just get so wrapped up reading everyone else's great blogs. Anyways I just wanted to thank a couple of nice ladies out there that sent some wonderful Good Mail. Which I will add photos to this blog I promise before the weekend is over! But I want to so thank you to Catherine for a really cool GM tag, it is super cute, you are so creative!
Also thank you to Amber she sent me the Orbit which is really good, I normally don't chew gum but this stuff is great. She also sent me that adorable little card with sparkles all around the flower. i love sparkles!
Too fun everyone has got to love Good Mail!

Other than that it has been a quiet week for me the golf lessons went well, although I had a hard time just practicing what I was supposed to! I really want to wack the ball, so I had to ask the instructor, Deb, who is the best by the way, so umm when do we get to wack the ball? "Pretty soon", she said, I am thinking the last class, although this women must know me well, because at the end of class she was telling me that I was doing really well. I am just like a little kid, my eyes lit up, yeah for me, now I will practice my y swing, even though I really just want to do the fun L-swing. Here is to me for following instructions and actually listening to stuff I should, although I am going to the driving range this weekend and I am so gonna wack that ball. It just makes me feel so good!

Golfing Diva

Well guys today is the day, I start my golfing lessons! I am so excited I can't wait, my OH, that's other half for those of you who don't know my wacky terminolgy, got me the coolest periwinkle blue drivers and lessons for Christmas. It was actaully a whole set but the only pretty colored ones are the drivers. So they are my favorite, out of the whole bag of them. So I will let you know tommorow how it goes tommorow.
I was going to the driving range and doing really well, and then the last time I went I almost hit a couple of people with the ball, let's just say I was slicing the ball so hard it was coming at other people up on the driving range. Oops! Although the one guy I almost hit was stairing at my chest before I almost nailed him, so personally I think he deserved it. Personally thinking back, I find it hilarous, although OH might never go to the driving range and stand next to me again.
Until Later, wish me luck I feel like I am going to need it tonight!

Here we have a sampling of vintage lace, these are so pretty and delicate.

Last but not least we have the Vintage Rhinestone Cluster Ring. I know I really need to become way more creative with names, but I think it works!
Well head on over to good old Etsy to check them out. Until later!

Happy Monday an OxyMoron

Hoped I spelled that right, and that everyone had a fabulous weekend. I had a very busy weekend but found some cool stuff here and there at garage sales this weekend. So I will have to take some photos and share.

Well I told you all that I got promoted but I never mentioned to where, drum role please, I am moving into the marketing department. I actually have a degree in Communication Design, so this is actually in my field. So I am super excited plus everyone in that department is already just the coolest.

Other than that I have been busy sending out applications for art shows for the Fall and Christmas season. I am glad to announce that if your in the twin cities this November 29 stop on by the Landmark Center for their Holiday Bazaar, and stop by and say hi to me, I just got the letter and I am so in. Yippy, so I really need to start hammering out some more jewelry, and promotional stuff for the upcoming shows.

Hope this isn't the worlds most boring post, I am just feeling like what to write what to write and somewhat in a sleepy stupor still, counting down until I move out of my current very not so much fun stare at the wall job. It's the final countdown, sorry had to add that in, well until later!

On a super happy note, I got promoted at work, yeah so I am now moving up to the marketing department. So now I will actually be doing something that I went to school for. Super excited at this point so wish me luck. Also I would like to thank everyone for the great comments, I appologize I have been a glass half empty kind of girl lately and I am so not sure why. So thanks so much for bearing with me. Hope you all have a splendid weekend and may the Thrift Gods be with you! Until then!

The Thrifty Gods Are No Where Around

So I finally got to go Estate saling last weekend and there were actually a few sales in town. So I was so excited and driving all the way across the fricken state to find barely anything! What, the heck! It seems that the sales were all really well picked over for the sale day, usually I always find some awesome stuff but this time, I just kept driving and driving. Finally on my last sale I found the stuff in the photo.
I did come upon some cool vintage pinking shears in the original box for 2 bucks and some old flowers, and a tin. I sweat though I spent at least 15 bucks on the gas driving all over the place. Oh well!

So unfortunately I have a Baptism this Sunday, so the Thrift Gods won't be looking out for me this weekend either. This is so bad I feel like an addict waiting for my next fix. So thank you to everyone else that is posting pics of your finds, at least I can share in the joy of your great finds! Until Then!
