Life lately...

Left: Working on an embroidery project, which you will see soon. Right: Doing a few sewing repairs to a 1930s velvet gown.

Top: Photographing beautiful dresses and (bottom) boots and tapestry bags.

I took a couple of vintage hunting road trips and these are a few shots from them. Top: Exploring abandoned buildings in the Texas countryside. Bottom: Sourcing items for the shop.

Road trip treasures. Left: For me a 1930s quilt top and antique fairytale books. Right: A 1950s dress for the shop.

More road trip treasures. Left: A micro pleated bodice on a 1950s evening gown. Right: 1950s circle skirts.

Left: Tooling leather for a project that I will blog about soon. Right: What I wore, a 1930s blue crocheted blouse.

Top: A 1950s beaded silk cocktail dress headed to the shop. Bottom: I found my perfect boyfriend jeans, 1970s broken in Wranglers, and have been wearing them ever since.

Top: A spring hike. Bottom: A lot of Southwestern vintage finds!

Left: I left an estate sale with an instant collection of 20s-40s jazz records. Right: 1960s era spring florals all headed to the shop.

Left and Right: Tooling a custom Bird's Wing bracelet for a customer. If you are interested in this bracelet or any of my leather work, I'm always happy to discuss custom work. Just click the "Contact" button on the blog!
