I’m SUPER excited to share this with you! Check out the Fall 2015 issue of Vintage Holiday Magazine! It’s a special issue from the editors of Cottages and Bungalows on newsstands NOW through Nov 10! It features my vintage holiday collection, an interview, tips, quotes, and I was even the photographer for this one!!! PLUS don’t forget I’ll be stocking up the holiday section of my vintage shop with TONS of vintage holiday from now through Christmas, so check back often as I list amazing treasures, no doubt even some from my own collection! A HUGE thanks to editor Jacqueline deMontravel who was awesome to work with on this project! On the cover you’ll see some of my little deer saying hello in the first circle, then flip to page 16 for 4 pages of vintage holiday magic! Check it out below along with some extra shots and if you’d like to see more flip through my past Dec blog posts, or click on over to my flickr holiday page for a few more shots starting with its humble beginnings! One last thing!  You just might need some artgoodies holiday products to go along with your vintage holiday collection, say a NEW knee hugger elf or all over elf tea towel?

color of the month September 2015!

September! That means Labor Day Weekend, which means we’re inching closer to fall. I’m a little more at ease with it this year for some reason…at least for now. I think this month, with a lot of ivy in the mix, I was subconsciously inspired by the bittersweet vine that grows on the fence in my side yard. It grows SO fast sometimes I feel like if I stand there long enough it will grab ahold of me! So here it is, color of the month September 2015! Green and glorious and full of vining ivy!
