Well, I never make or buy outfits for my dog because he absolutely hates it. But, I came up with this idea and decided I just had to do it.
The hat came out kind of funky, but well,here is a couple of pics of my dog in his Napoleon-Admiral style outfit, epaulettes and all.
You may start laughing now! …

Those of us that adore vintage items have reasons for it. Some of us are fond of the designs, or the patterns and fabrics used. Some of us enjoy having something with imaginable rich histories. Personally I have several reasons for preferring vintage pieces to the modern day mass marketed threads.
I support the “reuse, reduce, recycle” campaign whole heartedly. Even to the point that I, a city dweller, have free ranging chickens in the backyard. Yep. I asked my hubby one day to build me a… Continue

I noticed groups from Etsy, Ecrater, Ruby Lane, etc., does no one sell on Bonanzle. If they do why is there not a group for Bonanzle?

adj. pertaining to gradual evolution from one type of organism to another
So.....take an animal or any non-human, inanimate object.......throw in a… Continue

Last week’s installment discussed the creation of your makeup canvas, and this week we’ll take a look at the next layer of color: Blush and contouring!
I’ll start with a little history on the concept of contouring. This method uses light and dark to shade the planes of the face, adding depth to bring out the various features of one’s face. It is this subtle depth that prevents your makeup from looking flat. The famous Westmores invented the concept of contouring; this family team of… Continue

For years I have collected jars of buttons from estate sales. Going through the jars of buttons is like digging for treasure! When I was a child my mom had a large tin filled with buttons. My sisters and friends would spend rainy days sorting them and stringing them into beautiful necklaces and bracelets. Wonderful memories created from simple objects. That is why I cannot pass by a jar or bag of buttons, without wanting to spill them out and look them over. I have posted a few pictures of our… Continue

Please see the feed from my wordpress blog. My Mom's dying & I still won't be around much - but I'll try to keep giving updates. I've given up on much new selling for this holiday season. Somethings are just more important. Leslye

And now you’re mine….at least for the duration of this blog that is.
Here we are, one week out from the magical holiday known as Halloween. Since the first of October my kids have been asking, “Is it time yet? Is it Halloween yet?”. While I do share in their excitement, I think there is a certain anticipation and joy surrounding holidays that only children possess. I can’t help but relate to Halloween thru music. I am a huge music buff, and my all time favorite genre is Blues.… Continue

We love to go vintage shopping and the best part, for us, is the research! When we find something and have a gut feeling about it, we purchase it. The fun part is finding out what it is and how it was used. When we research items we are amazed at the creative spirit that is imbedded in the object! Cal’s favorites are Milk Glass, Pressed glass and Fire King glassware. I love the jewelry, books, kitchen stuff, holiday, paper items and “I can’t believe you bought that”! I love to see the creative… Continue

Well I do not feel the need to introduce myself since Alley Kat did such a great job! But here is a bit about me, my name is Crystal and I am the women behind The House Of Hearts. I started selling vintage clothing after some encouragement from my boyfriend Paul and not feeling full satisfied working full time P.R. for a web development company. So The House of Hearts was created!
I do a weekly blog called Vintage Fashion Friday’s where I pick a theme that has inspired me through out… Continue

One of our favorite times of the year is Halloween. There is something magical about the imagination surrounded by the children frequently seen parading the streets. Personally I have run the gamut of possible costumes..ranging from Cinderella to a Pirate Queen. Now that I have my own children the holiday has taken on a new meaning.
At our house we tend to have certain seasonal rituals. Before the start of school we make entirely too large pots of chocolate pudding. During the… Continue

It's about my love for silhouettes
. I can't say it's an educational post because I really don't include anything about the history of silhouettes. I'm just showing examples of different… Continue

The high today is a mere 50 degrees. Warmer than some areas, cooler than others. For us, it is the typical Fall weather. A colorful assortment of reds, yellows and oranges blossoming in their own rite in every direction. I am a gardener by hobby and like others thoroughly enjoy the Spring season and all it’s offering of home grown bounty. But, unlike some I know, I enjoy the blossoms of Fall just as much and perhaps even more so. I realize that the assortment of shapes and sizes admired in… Continue

Most people that know me, know that I am NOT a technology person. While I like what I like..that being Apple computers and iPods, I am new to the constant online chatter. I am not a Facebook, Twitter, Myspace or Chat junkie..although given the right topic could probably be easily converted..say gardening, vintage shopping, or McDreamy and you are certain to get my attention.
Luckily for me, I have a friend that is a guru when it comes to all things graphic. Not only can she make… Continue

We have all heard it. “In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue”. It is engrained in our minds from a very early age. And rather catchy I must add. It certainly comes to me easier than geometry equations. I never was one for math. With the upcoming holiday I thought I would do a little research on Columbus Day and find out why it is that only banks get the day off.
What is the deal with that? So apparently Columbus and his discovery is important enough to have his very own dedicated… Continue

It’s official. Even I, myself and me have bounderies. Of course I have always had personal bounderies..I am talking about shopping bounderies. I am a pro shopper. I know what I want and can scan a room faster than most people can walk in and walk out. What can I say, I have been doing it for a long time. I have acquired personal favorite stores that I stop in and check weekly, and others that are only on the once a month list. In my neck of the woods (yes, I did just say neck of the woods.) I… Continue
