Vintage Nouveau

Posted May 21st, 2012 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

This Monday morning I’m finding peace in the simple. A mostly white interior seems to hit that sweet spot, so that’s what I’m going with.

I have such a love for European decor and their ability to mix antiques and modern furnishings beautifully. Although this house tour appears Parisian at first glance, it’s actually swedish. Beautiful, none the less.

A beautiful mix of old and new. Happy Monday!

Another Sale…

Posted May 17th, 2012 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

This time we’re putting stuff out on the sidewalk! It’s the Taste of Glen Ellyn this weekend and the weather is forecasted to be unbelievable, so come out to see what we’re putting on sale (hint: there will be loads of purses and bags).

If you’ve never been to our store and wonder what sorts of odds and ends we sell, this picture pretty much sums it up. I came across it here and couldn’t believe how familiar it felt. A few books, pottery and general randomness…yup, that’s us.

Makes me want to cozy up on the couch with a book and a nice cup of tea. And…back to reality.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.

An Ode to Color…Green

Posted May 9th, 2012 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

With all of the rain we’ve had, everything outdoors is the most glorious shade of green.  First thing I do when I wake up is look out my bedroom window that faces the front of the house, and I love looking out to such greenness.  So this is an ode to green…

Scarf Pillows

Posted May 8th, 2012 by admin and filed in Uncategorized

For all of you adventurous DIY folks, I wanted to share this fun scarf pillow tutorial. I love finding untraditional uses for traditional everyday items.

I’ve shared this idea before but never a tutorial. With all the beautiful scarves we have in the store, I’m always trying to think up ways to incorporate them into my home. Now that I finally know how to use my sewing machine, maybe I’ll actually try this out myself.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
