No matter how you get there, you are sure to feel warmth as you enter from the lovely chandelier hanging in the small entry of the quaint 1920's house, not to mention the grand architectural iron gate.
Each time I get to visit Vintage Sisters, it is always a visual treat, come along and see just a few of the treasures.
Raise you hand if...these are actually old rubber glove molds, up close you can see the indentions that make up the grippy part of the glove. Just as they stand, they create a modern visual impact, but could also play double-duty as jewelry holders-draping necklaces or sliding rings.
That is pretty much what my hubby's six-pack looks like, but even better *wink*. I love the old-world masculine feeling created here with the typewriter, globe and books.
A more feminine side.

We just used your classic Easter egg decorating kit, but if you are up to amping your Easter egg decorating skills check out this tutorial for silk dyed eggs. They are pretty awesome.

1. Paper cut to 8" x 8" square
Position your 8" x 8" paper like a diamond, as shown above. Measure and mark with a pencil, 3 inches from the top point on each side; do the same to the bottom point. Indicated as here.
Next, using the marks you made above, fold the two side corner in along those marks. You can now erase those pencil marks.
Once your two side corners are folded in, fold down the top corner, placing the point approx. where the two sides form a triangle, in this case a white triangle.
Do the same to the bottom corner, but first raise the top fold up so you will know where to place your point and make your fold.
Add ribbon and a sweet message.

These Betty Blues earrings were my first jewelry purchase on Etsy. They were lovingly handmade by lilybird designs. I think it was partly the color combo and the tiny red crystals that enticed me...find more enticing jewels at lilybird designs.
