Gifts Galore

I've been working on my Etsy store - revampsarahtacoma - trying to organize all my stuff and get it listed. I can't resist buying vintage children's toys/books and came up with the idea to organize them by theme and then sell them as gift sets. It's been really fun seeing what themes I can come with using the merchandise I already had.

Here's a few sets I came up with:

Happy Valentine's Day!

I asked Quinn if he wanted to draw his own Valentine cards this year. He was excited about it and came up with this awesome Heart Dragon!

DIY shelf Display with vintage trinkets

So I am pretty excited today! I just bought a fantastic antique couch at the thrift store (and because I'm chatty all the time with the people that work there - she knocked off $50 for me). The upholstery is just amazing - but unfortunately doesn't match our color scheme so I am headed downtown to the fabric district next week to pick out something darker, moodier and in the "bordeaux red" family. But in anticipation for our new living room centerpiece -  I've been playing around with some of the other decorative display items in the room.

This 40s beauty has a few nicks - but I loved her anyway  -- so I took her home, added a fun little silver pom pom sparkler into the vase part and encased her in a glass dome.

I love deer. It's a recurring theme in my art and home decor so I was thrilled when I found this vintage red flocked deer at Goodwill. But alas her tail was broken off - so I replaced it with a gold ostrich feather plume.

Couch make-over photos coming soon!
