Today, lets celebrate the small…because tiny things can pack a big punch!
This shop is so cool. Pass miniature sweets and yummy treats on handcrafted, marble plates and platters from Marblellous at your next dinner party.
Balancing organic and geometric design, Michelle Starbuck makes some really interesting and unique jewelry. I want that tassel necklace…
Browse screen printed pillowcases, kitchen towels, market totes, prints, and brooches at Urban Bird & Co. I really like the new totes and pouches for back to school.

How will you celebrate small things today?
Daria Vintage is after my heart, combining two things I adore: vintage + polka dots. Check these out…
Of course there are other styles too – like this 70s print dress, which is my absolute favorite. I think I would just get it hemmed a little shorter.
That’s the key to buying vintage (at least for me) – getting vintage clothes altered to fit your body perfectly will turn a dated dress into something totally new again!
Over the weekend, I started organizing my office and realized I desperately need to decorate.
For some reason my studio is the only room of our apartment that we haven’t really done anything to. We did hang a couple of posters, but that hardly counts.
So I am thinking about what I want the room to be…I am picturing another art cluster (similar to the one I did in our old house) and a big shelf to house some of my favorite little trinkets. Which, of couse, led me to start looking for more little treasures to put in this (still un-purchased) trinket shelf. What is wrong with me?
So anyway, that leads me to today’s shop of the day: Jolly Time One, a vintage shop full of bit and bobbins for the home. Love these horseshoes. Totally want ‘em – and can picture them on my imaginary trinket shelf right now.
Visiting Sandy’s shop is kind of like walking into an antique shop meets online thrift store, with more than 300 items ranging from quirky odds and ends to functional storage to craft supplies. A little bit of everything.
You’ll just have to see for yourself.
Popping in to share a little vintage + handmade shop before I give you a sneak peek of my closet later today. If you’re looking for a new vintage shop to follow for clothes, accessories, and jewelry, check out Banjo and Bone. I like the jewelry especially, which is a mix of untouched vintage items and new handmade pieces with a vintage feel.
I chose a few of my favorites, and I snuck in that pair of pants at the top left because they are awesome! Wish I could pull off an outfit like that.
Visit Banjo and Bone on Etsy to view more vintage wearables and more.
After a long couple of weeks, I am ready to put my feet up and just relax this weekend. Too bad we still have no furniture in our apartment (movers are apparently coming Monday with all of our stuff).
P.S. Last call for the new exhibition is tonight at 10pm EST. Submit your work here if you’re interested.
Hope you have an amazing weekend.
