Scarf and milk glass teacup from evelynsvintage.com

Once again, I have been a bit neglectful of this space, but trust me, I have a pretty good reason for my absence.  Over the past few months I have been developing my own online vintage shop, Evelyn’s Vintage and Fine Handcrafts.  The site officially launches tonight at midnight (East coast, USA time, depending on where you are in the world) at evelynsvintage.com.  I would love it if you stopped by to check it out!

I am so thankful to every one who has read, followed, liked, commented, or even just browsed this blog, in many ways it led me to launching Evelyn’s.  I am definitely not saying this is the end of this blog.  You may even see something similar to it on the Evelyn’s site in the near future.

So don’t be a stranger, stop by the shop, evelynsvintage.com, anytime.

Or catch us on facebook.com/evelynsvintage or follow us @Evelyns_Vintage

Much love and good (vintage) shoes,

Well it was certainly an unplanned hiatus from the ol’ blog, but a busy one at that.  One of the projects I took on in my absence was a break room makeover.  It played out like a show on HGTV: “two days!  Two hundred dollars!”  And only falling slightly over budget—$17 dollars to be exact—I would say the makeover was a success.

Now for the obligatory Before and After shots:

If you would like to purchase some of the items seen in the revised break room for your own abode, I have included links and prices: faux leather futon, $129 (it was on sale for $117 when I got it–sorry!); floral rug, $19.99; floral pin board fabric, $7.99/yard; leopard and geometric pin board fabrics, $8.99/yard (only one available on the website.)  Everything else was either donated and/or re-purposed (except for the paint, of course.)

Now, with the fashion weeks being in full swing, do not expect another hiatus anytime soon!

Much love and good shoes,

e
