Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- April 21st

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! My sister was in town yesterday, and we took the dogs to the dog park. Beau loves to play with his sister Sadie! I have always been a total animal lover! Up until we got Beau, however, I leaned more towards cats as a favorite. Now, dogs are leading by just a hair, no pun intended. I love all breeds, and the dog park is becoming one of our favorite places to go, not just for Beau to socialize, but for us too. So, this week I thought I would share a little collection of vintage dogs from the wonderful world of Etsy’s vintage shops. Here are just a few of my favorites:

DIY Easter Egg Vases

09 DSC 0150 DIY Easter Egg VasesEaster is this weekend and I wanted to make a fun centerpiece for the table for our Easter dinner. I have been inspired by the adorable egg vases I have seen floating around on Pinterest like this one, this one, this one, and this one. I thought I would try my hand at making my own egg vases. This was a super easy and fast DIY, and I think it is going to be perfect for our Easter table!

Here’s What You Need:

*Fake Dyeable Easter Eggs (I bought mine at Walmart)

*Dye (I used Procion Dyes that I had from fabric dying)

*Mini Spray Bottles

*Protective gloves

*Belt Sander or Dremel fitted with a sanding disk

*Paint (optional)

Instructions:

11 photo 1 DIY Easter Egg Vases

13 photo 2 DIY Easter Egg Vases

15 photo 3 DIY Easter Egg Vases

17 photo 4 DIY Easter Egg Vases

The first thing you need to do is sand holes into your eggs. Set up your dremmel or your sander. Run the tip of the egg over the sander or sanding disk and grind down the tip of the egg until you have a hole in the top the size you like.

12 photo 2 2 DIY Easter Egg Vases

14 photo 3 2 DIY Easter Egg Vases

Next, you are ready to dye your eggs. You can use a dye kit, or you can spray on dyes like I did. Open up your mini spray bottle and add a tiny bit of dye into it. You only need a pinch. Fill the bottle with warm water and screw the lid back on. Shake it up.

16 photo 4 2 DIY Easter Egg Vases

18 photo 5 2 DIY Easter Egg Vases

Put on your gloves. Grab an egg and spay the egg all over with the dye you mixed up. Make sure you spray your eggs over a sink or tub, and rinse the dye out of the sink as you go. Once your egg is saturated with dye, set it aside to dry using the little paper rings that come with the egg kit. Repeat with your other eggs.

While your eggs dry, you can paint the egg carton if you like. Once the eggs are dry, load them into the egg carton and add your flowers, filling each egg with a little water.

There are a lot of sweet egg vases and planters on pinterest to inspire you. Definitely give this DIY a try! You’ll love it! I’ll be back next week with another fun project. Until then…

For all my local readers out there, Let’s Shop Local is an organization dedicated to showcasing and supporting local artists in the Triangle area of North Carolina.

Easy DIY Ten Minute Floral Headband

diy headband Easy DIY Ten Minute Floral Headband

diy easter headband Easy DIY Ten Minute Floral Headband

Easter is going to be here before we know it! For all of you ladies that want an accessory a little more subdued than a fancy Easter bonnet, give this easy floral headband a try! This faux floral headband is really fast to whip up, and it is easy as pie!

Here’s What You Need:

*Skinny Metal Headbands

*Wire Floral Picks (I bought mine at Michael’s)

*Wire Cutters

*Glue(optional)

Instructions:

This diy is so simple! The first thing you need to do is separate the floral pieces in your floral pick. You can usually just pull branches off of the main stem. Once you have your floral pieces separated you are ready to add them to your headband. Take one of your wire floral pieces. You can trim the tail off to about an inch or so below where the floral piece starts. Take the end of the wire on the floral piece and wrap it around your headband. Wrap the floral piece around the headband a couple of times until it is wrapped all the way around and lies on the top side of the headband. Take a second piece of floral pick and wrap it around your headband just above where your first pick is wrapped. Continue on wrapping your floral wires around until you have as much as you like on your headband. I used one full floral pick on my headband, and I shifted the bunch to more of the side of the headband. If you wrap your wires well around your headband, you should not need to glue it in place, but you can add a few drops of glue to the ends if you like.

I love this little floral headband! It really adds a little spring sweetness to an outfit. You can wear it with your Easter dress, or jeans and your favorite soft tee. I love the simplicity of it, and how customizable it is! You can change the look simply by using different floral picks. I hope you guys will give this one a try! You’ll want one in every color! I will be back next week with another fun spring DIY. Until then…

I Heart Etsy Fridays- The Art of Peter Emmerich

A few weeks ago I was browsing through Etsy, and I let out a gasp. You know, one of those gasps that women do so well, that can either be from fear or extreme excitement. My husband refers to it as sucking all the air out of the room. In this case, I was crazy excited!I had somehow serendipitously come across a portrait of Coco Channel by Peter Emmerich, and when I entered his Etsy shop, I fell in love with every single piece there! It was a yes moment. So, today I am over the moon to share with you my newest favorite Etsy shop, The Art of Peter Emmerich! Peter is an amazing artist and illustrator! He has quite a fantastic resume, including design work for the Walt Disney Company. You can read more about Peter’s artsy accolades in his bio Here. His work is whimsical, and just so happy! Every piece will make you smile. The thing I love the most about Peter’s work is his mid-century style, vintage fashion references, and the quirkiness in his characters. He really gives so much personality to his art! His subject matter is also really awesome! There are illustrated portraits ranging from amazing old hollywood legends like Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball, to the ever fabulous Diana Ross and Ella Fitzgerald, to even modern favorites Adele and Harry Potter. I also love Peter’s story book characters! One of my favorites is an illustration of a circus bear that looks like it was inspired by one of my favorite vintage children’s books, which features learning your abc’s at the circus! They are all just wonderful! Here are a few of my absolute favorites:

Aren’t they all so adorable! I can’t decide on which one to get, I love them all! I know I will be getting Marcie one of Coco Channel for Christmas. She took a trip to Paris last year and the ladies at the Channel flagship shop liked her so much, they took her back and gave her a little tour of Coco’s studio. I was quite jealous. I know she’d get a kick out of the print of Madame Coco! To see more of Peter’s amazing work, visit his Etsy shop, The Art of Peter Emmerich, Here. You can also follow his awesome blog Here. I’ll be back next week with another lovely artist. Until then…
