vintage to wear and to decorate

I just put this new piece up for sale at Junque Revival
I wanted to keep it a bit more modern then my usual look. I combined a vintage drawer-pull plate with an antique victorian button, but kept it light on a simple copper chain.

I have a second shop at Etsy where I have been selling vintage items and destash. I've found some boxes of old treasures in the second story of the barn from the antiquing days. There are finds that I forgot I even had. I've kept a few found-objects for making jewelry, but most I'm cleaning out in hopes they'll find a new home with a new appreciation!

This Goddess wall plaque is ultra shabby-chic

Whenever I look at it I think how fun it would be to have a garden tea-party!


Last fall I found a stray kitty at my bird feeders. It's occured to me that I haven't kept you all posted on our little Bella. Well she's not so little anymore. It didn't take long for the dirty bag-of-bones to clean up! Here she is 9 months later.....

As you can see, she knows a good home when she sees one!

So after writing this post, I'm finding it will definetly take a little getting used to here at Blogger. The one issue I just had, was that the photos went straight to the top when I uploaded them, making it a total freakin' pain! I usually write, add a photo, write some more, add another photo. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but if anyone has some advice, I'd love to hear it! After all these years of blogging with the same service, it might be hard to change my ways!


  1. Jes, I love your new looks great!
    Great new pieces and such a pretty kitty!

  2. Congrats on your new blog, it looks really fresh and inviting! And Bella is bellissima!

  3. Congratulations on your new blog. Love the colors. I just gave my blog a new look with lighter colors too.
    Now the picture at the top issue. I have the same problem. I don't have and answer for you but if you ever find out,I'd like to know.
    Your little Bella is quite the looker.She's gorgeous.


  4. I have the same issues with the pictures and sometimes spacing things. Glad to know I'm not the only one...
