So we’ve had a couple of what feels like balmy days here in MI, and by that I mean 40 something. The snow has greatly melted, yeah yeah, I know it’s a teaser and there’s more winter on the way but I’m totally falling for it! I’m dying to get outside and start gardening, stat! So with that in mind this month is all about green! I can’t wait to see my little green planty friends poking through the ground, oh how I’ve missed you! Want to get your hands on some vintage green goodies? Go to my shop and search the word “green” and you’ll find some of the things below! www.vintagegoodies.etsy.com. Then head on over to artgoodies for your own nest towel! www.artgoodies.etsy.com
Okay, so this is just too good and too strange not to share. A few months back I was complaining to my dad about the water marks and scratches left on the top of my vintage console radio. Some of them had been there for years, and some of them new from a plant whose leaves had dripped! UGH! My dad, clever as ever, remembered a trick they used to use in college. Wait for it….mayo! Really? MAYO- as in would you like some mayo on your sandwich? YES! Really? I had to see this for myself!! The other night I was looking at my vintage hutch and though yes, the perfect opportunity to test it out again. Below you will find the before and after. There are different instructions online but I simply wiped the mayo on and rubbed a second and voila! It works, and it is amazing! I still can’t believe it. I’ve used it on my coffee table, and even a bad scratch in my wood floor! It’s a vintage miracle! Can I get an AMEN!
At times like these I am ever so thankful to be safely snuggled up in my nice cozy warm house. And for having a snow removal service, seriously. The wind was howling and the snow was coming down fast and furious, I awoke to the sound of shovels and snowblowers. Again, so thankful that my work was here at home a short trip down the steps.
Finally some time to work on some new things! Now available in shop the NEW all over cupcake and heart towels and sham pillows! A perfectly sweet treat for anyone on your list of loves.
