Hey folks! I hope everyone is having a lovely, relaxing weekend! I thought I’d pop in and share a few things I’ve found this week while wandering around the web.

First up are these adorable deer found on SheWalksSoftly and made by Violetpie.

I discovered this darling book jewelry on Reading is Fashionable. Earrings, pins, necklaces, and hair accessories can all be found at BookEarrings.

Have you heard of the Vintagemobile. This old school bus travels around the Dallas area selling vintage clothing. I so want to visit this bus! I found the Vintagemobile on a recently discovered treasure of a blog, Gypsy Dust Vintage. You really should check it out!

Speaking of Gypsy Dust Vintage, it was there that I discovered the lovely illustrations of Inslee.

I am also excited to learn about the collaboration between milliner Albert Swanepoel and Target. Can’t wait for these to hit the shelves!

Ever wondered if you are a 21st Century Romantic?  Take this fun quiz on a bloomsbury life to find out.  While you are there check out the rest of her blog.  I think you’ll like it.

That’s all for now. I have more goodies I can’t wait to share, so see ya later.

Fifi Flowers Paintings

Fifi Flowers paints the most beautiful, whimsical pictures. They are just darling.

I couldn’t resist a little Holly Golightly. Isn’t Fifi’s work just delightful! Looking at all her paintings makes me smile. Do visit her Etsy shop and her blog!

The amazing art of Christopher Stott found on 79 Ideas.

An awesome blog highlighting the style and wisdom of those older than myself.

And finally this lovely cupcake stand made using old records. I am truly excited because it does no harm to the records themselves. This cute idea was found on Oh Happy Day!

What exciting notions are you finding around the web?

I love red, white, and blue for summer and as of late have been enamored of all things sailor. In honor of the 4th of July Weekend, here are some sailor goodies found on Etsy.

1. I just adore these sailor totes from bayanhippo!
2. This throw pillow from Mazizmuse is so cute!
3. These earrings from Schmoo1515 are definitely on my wishlist!
4. If only I had the money, this vintage dress from CreatedandCollected would be mine!
5. This Nautical Bunting art print from TheJoyofColor is so pretty!
6. FablesbyBarrie has the cutest sailor swimsuit, don’t you think?
7. I love it when my husband picks up his Bay Rum or Old Spice aftershaves. This mariner soap by swanmountainsoaps contains sandlewood, bay rum, and spice. It sounds absolutely divine to me.
8. The anchor cameo and stripes make this hair bow from KoffinKitten near perfect!
9. I would love to write a letter on this 1930’s era stationary from Monday Pie. I wouldn’t receiving a letter written on it either!

I want to go to Ohio and stay in this lovely castle I discovered at Vintage Indie. It is called Ravenwood Castle and sounds like such fun!

I love this art by Joël Penkman which I found via Hello My Dear. He uses paint pigments and egg yolks to make egg tempera. My favorite painting is this one of candy sticks.

This little Pentax has everything in a tiny package. I’d love to have one, but I’d have to fight my husband for it. Click here to learn more.

A Vintage Poster has a collection of pretty, delightful, fun posters. They come in a variety of colors and the price is right too.

Have you ever seen or heard of A Cameo Creation?  I discovered them sometime ago and fell in love.  They are the prettiest cameo portraits in lovely frames.  They will usually have a sticker on the back that says “A Cameo Creation.”  They were made in the 1940’s through 1960’s.  They can be found in thrift stores, flea markets, and antique shops and are inexpensive.  I fell in love immediately and began my own little collection.  We spent the weekend rearranging a few pieces of furniture which led to moving pictures as well.  I hung a bit of my collection here in the living room.  They are know on my mind so I thought I’d see what Etsy had to offer.  I found some lovely pieces!

And now a couple of shots of my collection!
