Vintage Dress

Pin It Now! My new favorite shop on Etsy, Zooeys Vintage, opened January 1st, 2013. Great way to start the year!

Zooey is selling adorable vintage dresses and I just had to nab up this one!

Vintage 50s Chiffon Scallop Lace Dress

I wanted to share a photo of it on but it's too big. I have to take it in before I can model it.

The dress came nicely wrapped, with a lovely note, and a freebie! An adorable little purse. Please stop by her shop and check out her dresses...her shop is a little gem!

its all a little to good to be true...

I'm a new proud member of the Etsy Vintage Society Street Team

I just today bought a serger, on a I can get some sewing in..wait when is their time to sew?
I have a few creative sewing projects, I would like to complete and sell on my shop.
I'm in the midst of throwing a two year old birthday party for 40+ family members!Train theme, pictures and post to follow :)
Never enough time to read all the books on my wish list.....
No more Everyday food magazine...beyond disappointment. It comes in the mail as my reminder to make new foods, yea pinterest is great, but once I pin something I have the hardest time finding it again?!I like a hard copy me old fashioned!

I feel like I'm starting to get closer to that age old question of "what do you want to be when you grow up" My answer was always an art teacher, and I got pretty darn close to that. Yes, I felt pretty shot down when I was in South Carolina and an advisor said to me.."Don't you want to teach school age children, you know they are doing away with art teachers" what a sad concept. I worked many many years with school age children in before and after school care working on art projects. Learned a lot from those little people and some days miss it. I have my own budding artist now and he gets so proud when I hang his paintings on our wall. Eager to show daddy when he comes home from work our latest mess :)

I truly feel like this is the creative, artistic, fine arts degree background will really show its self...A girl can hope right?

2013 is full of hope and focus.
To work hard, play more and live a life full of love

***Just for randomness I've had somethings on my mind lately
That dress from back to the future that Lea Thompson wears to the Enchantment under the Sea...need to find one like that.
A herkimer diamond, would love to own one.
A backpack stroller
A collection of vintage pill boxes
A glass display box
and heated socks!
