Thrift-store Shopping...

This has been a great week for me so far! I invited my boss and co-workers over for a little lunch before work on Monday, and somehow I got that night off! I was ecstatic! I had a really rough and long night on Sunday that I didn't even think I could've work through another night at the restaurant. So the surprise day-off was a godsend! On top of that, I found out accidentally that one of my tags were among the features for one of the Storque articles! I was definitely pleasantly surprised and confused because it took me a couple of days to figure out which one it was. It was an article about the latest trends and things to look for, I'm very honored that my tags are part of this, click here for the article and to view the wonderful collection!

Anyway, my boyfriend and I went to the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse today in Oakland to see what they have right now, and we found some useful stuff. He wants to make some wind chimes with apothecary bottles that they have there, and I found an old-school trivet. So we both left happy! :)

(So cool! It stretches out!)

Nostalgic Moments...

Even though these couple of days have been my day offs, they have been kind of blah. I should be happy and out doing things, especially since the weather has been amazing here, but I just feel exhausted and listless. I have also started to reminisce the good ol' days, when life was simpler...

Anyway, while I was in this mood, I curated another treasury which I've named, A Little Bit of Nostalgia. I hope you enjoy it, and don't forget to leave a comment for these wonderful artists! :)

Let's hope the days get better...

Corals and Greys...

Since it's my day off today, I didn't really bother with dress up or nice. My agenda today was to run some errands, cook some food, clean the house, and maybe work a little. So after I put on whatever that was sitting on top of my dresser, I looked down and realized that I really like the color combination of coral and grey! I don't feel like it's been too overdone, so after I got home from my errands, I decided to make a treasury based on these colors. I'm quite happy with the results and would like to share with you!

I've named the collection, Corally Girly, and you'll see why. Please check it out here and don't forget to leave a comment for these amazing artists! :)

Have a wonderful day!

New Products!

Ever since the new year began, I've been thinking about expanding my shop to beyond just gift tags. After experimenting with many different items, I think I've found something that would fit into my shop - decorated wooden clothespin. (And no...not the cheesy kind!) Like all my tags, they are created with the vintage aesthetics in mind, and are multipurpose. I'm also experimenting with a new material, shrinky dinks, which is very fun to play with! I love that every one of them shrink slightly different from each other, thus consistent with the rest of my shop!

Anyway, I hope you can stop by my shop,check out the two newest listings, and let me know what you think! Thanks and have a wonderful day! :)
