Ring in the new year...
With the festivities coming to a close, the holiday clean up begins. This is the best time to reflect on everything, and take stock of the season. Make note of the things you loved, and what you would do differently next year. I like to make a list; every time I hear "next year we should..." or "I would love it if..."
It's never too early to plan, and you know that there's no better time to shop for next year, than NOW! And to help you get started, here's a few great shops I know you'll love:

For french vintage, and some beautiful antiques, take a look at CabArtVintage on etsy

And for some atomic era fun, check out the huge collection of mid century treasures from JunkYardBlonde on etsy


Find new passions
The start of a new year is a great time to reflect on the past, as well as look ahead. Whether it's rekindling interest in an old hobby, building on a collection started by your grandma, or taking up a lost art, you can make something old new again! Take a look at what I'm planning this year, and find out how I was inspired by the past to create new heirlooms for the future.


All new DIY!
Small furniture upcycles are my favorite projects to tackle, and now I'm making them even more special with some new (to me) techniques. I've been studying and practicing, and I'm ready to share my results! From Weaving rush seats, to hand painted needlepoint canvas, I've taken on some interesting challenges lately... but get ready, cause 2017 is the year of trying new things!
