Vintage Cosmetic Set

Vintage Cosmetic Set

  One of the things I love about shopping thrift and or vintage shops is the ideas I get from just looking around. I tend to think of things in a display mindset. What could I do with this? What do I already have that I could pair with this? More often then not I can come up with something. I gathered some of my cute vintage items and created The Vintage Cosmetic Set that includes nail polish, lipstick, bobby pins, tortoise shell plastic hair forks, costume daisy necklace, and a hand crocheted pink doily.

My Crochet Story

Grandma taught me how to crochet when I was little. Although I could not crochet, nor had the patience at a young age, I managed to master the single crochet stitch and made countless chains of “snakes”. Today, I love my “I” hook and pass the evenings away crocheting something or trying out new stitches I found online. It’s been many years since Grandma taught me to make those snakes and I think of her often when I am crocheting for my littles. Probably why grandma crocheted too. I wish I could ask her what her favorite hook size

Recently I was in a Facebook group someone posted a question that seemed a little odd at first. “Where does everyone get their wood stain?

There are probably a lot of people that may not know the answer to that question. I wanted to take a few moments and talk about where I buy wood stains and what colors are available. Where do you buy

Our Old Building-Good Vibes To New Owners

Many of you know we closed our little store in Ogden a couple of years ago. Recently we decided to clean it out and list it for sale. It sold within 3 days!! We are so excited to finally close that chapter! We wish the new owners all the best and hope they love the old building as much as we did!

Shopping Events & Store Changes

Remember my recent blog post “Where’s Mary”? In quick summary I’m still here and still running around like crazy. I am quickly realizing that if you try to do to much you end up doing nothing well and I’m going to have to find a new way of doing things. So, I’m making time for more junking, creating, and our little shop! I’m pretty excited to end our weekly store hours and start once a month and occasional shopping at Twice the Story. Visit our home page, event page, or Facebook page for dates and times when we will
