Paper Net Garland DIY

by Kathleen Ballos

Aren’t vintage craft books the best? Some of the projects can be a bit outdated but you can find some real gems as well! This garland was inspired by Christmas tree decorations in an old Girl Scout craft book that I was thrilled to get my hands on. They’re so easy to whip up and you likely already have all the supplies.

A 40th Birthday Party

by Casey Baudoin

Celebrate your better half’s birthday in style with a modern, 1940′s theme, jazz music, cocktails, and cigar boxes filled with treats! Have guests select  their own 1940′s fashion to wear.  The statement piece will be the 40 big black balloons, which friends and family can write birthday wishes on.

I got this sweet little whale top on Etsy. When you have two small children, thrift store shopping seems like a world away.

Baby Hank Vintage

My sister in law Liz is the queen of combing flea markets and thrift stores, plus she has excellent taste. She just opened an etsy shop where she is selling super cute baby clothes for very cheap. This is good news for me because I can buy cute cheap baby clothes but I don’t have to leave my house.

Open letter of apology to Paul,

I’m sorry I bought lots of millinery supplies from this ebay shop. I’m not sure why I did it or what I will use them for. It was a force more powerful than me. Please forgive me.
