Positively Spring like here today. A balmy 75 degrees now. Woke up to this sweet birthday package from Amy in Tuscon. Someone I have never met, but a gal that over the course of this last year has become a happy friend. She sent me this beautiful vintage millinery tulip spray that now adorns a beaded bag along with an amethyst glass bird brooch that arrived from Duff of Jean Jean Vintage.
Speaking of birthdays and vintage. Is there some kind of social description for Pisces that we love vintage? So many vintage gals with B-days this week alone. Make sure to stop and say Happy B-day to these lovely ladies! Feel free to add your name to the list if I missed anyone!
Yesterday- Amy from Wildfell Hall Vintage
Today along with mine, Chelsey from McGregor Girl Vintage
and tomorrow Lauren from Dear Golden vintage
Can I also say in a non-stalking celebrity kind of way that Drew Barrymore and I were practically born in the same breath and that she also loves vintage and if she were to ever meet me, we would be best friends forever. Ok, that is it. I said it.
Happy Birthday ladies!

I Recently purchased Chuck Close's 'Cindy' for my stairwell which is has gotten a coat of bright white paint and new cork floors. Better Wall is a website that offers large and sometimes giant Museum banners from some of the best shows and museums around the world.
The large display banners are almost indestructible, are in excellent condition, ship for free, come with free hanging hardware that "floats" the banner away from the wall and partial proceeds return to the museums for future exhibitions.
Some of my favorites above: Chuck Close- Cindy ~ Greene and Greene- Chair
Martin Puryear (whom I have had the pleasure of hearing speak) ~ Etienne Meneau Carafe No. 5
and if I had an industrial studio space for vintage
I would get one of these:
Fashioning Fashion: Robe à L'anglaise - or - Yves Saint Laurent Feather Dress
The website offers mockups of the banners in a home setting as well
