Most recent bib necklace order...

I really love how this one turned out! Wanted to share it with you. The first Dark Lovely was a special order. She requested the colors black, green, brown, and purple. Sometimes I need some color inspiration. What other colors can I use to make a pretty Silver Screen Star bib necklace?

Pied Piper Photograghy....

Lindsay of Pied Piper Photography is so talented at designing fun photo shoots, this is one of my favorites, "Little Miss Muffet" also found here on her blog. I remember my Kindergarten teacher reading this to the class and I would imagine Little Miss Muffet sitting on a Billowy, ruffled, pretty pillow. Isn't that what a tuffet is? LOL.
Lindsay was so kind to ask me to help with her next set of photo shoots. It is so fun to create new designs around a theme, this is so exciting!

A must have for all seasons! KnockKnocking...

Agnes creates these wonderful and whimsical wreaths made from yarns, felt,
vintage figurines, cute little birds, and much more. I own a lovely KnockKnocking yarn wreath with a vintage bobble head fox in middle chilling next to a mushroom, it makes me smile whenever he bobbles his head.

Painted Pretty!

I would like to share with you my oh so special blue/teal cupboard painted by me. (This was very hard at the time since I was 8 months prego, but I was very determined to get it done!) this cupboard is very special because I grew up with it, opening the door as a child and looking at all my dads nick knacks, (my dad is a collector of vintage Ephemera and books) and putting things back very carefully so he could not tell they had been touched.

My mother was going to get rid of it and I said "hell NO!", then I took it home and painted it up pretty. I do need help with decorating it better, any ideas? It did have avery nice handmade teal and blue plate on a stand on the top, but I bumped it ...... :(

You may notice the nice bird flower pot, and owl picture purchased on Etsy on the top, among the many vintage things inside I also purchased on Etsy.

Get in the Bath!

What kid or adult would not love these soaps! I have a hard time getting my 4 year old boy to take a bath, he loves to play in the dirt and put dirt in his hair not soap, maybe if he could wash himself with an ice cream cone? Or maybe he would like the snails, LOL. I am redoing my kids bathroom in an retro ice cream theme, well really just the colors of ice cream. light brown, pink and cream. To find more of these cute, well made soaps and body butters, check out LoveLeeSoaps on Etsy.

Where did the name Flora Bond come from?

I get asked where I came up with the name Flora Bond all the time, so here is the story.

Picked up a vintage 1920 yearbook at the thrift store a few years ago. I love looking at the vintage photos and reading the messages. Came across a very small signature in the front, signed simply "Flora Bond" as seen in the photo above. I did not find a photo of her in it though.

What do you think she looked like?
