Well friends, we got some bad news about Andrew's knee this week. He has a fully torn ACL and will be going in for surgery in a few weeks which means 6 weeks on crutches, no driving for a month, 2 months of physical therapy 3x/week, and no sports for 9 months... I felt like such a baby, I burst into tears after the doctor told us! UGH I know, it could be WAY WORSE, I don't know why I felt so bummed out... I think that if winter would just end already, I think my spirits would instantly seems to be really dragging on this year doesn't it? 

It's my 25th birthday this oh my..mid twenties...I'm sure Andrew will make it simply wonderful..

congrats alison and vince!!

Over the weekend we attended the wedding of one of my very oldest friends (kindergarten!). Alison and Vince met at Desale's University and so it was only appropriate that they should get married there! She had the perfect day and she was a perfectly beautiful bride. Ironically, I have no photos of her because I was filming the wedding as my gift to her, and therefore I took very few photos. I did snap a few at the end of the night (I apologize for the graininess). My brother Evan will edit all the footage I took and I will definitely share the highlights video with you when it's all finished. I have never filmed anything before so I'm super excited to see the finished product!

take the chill off.

While I know that I should really stop buying items such as sweaters and coats and focus on my Spring collection, it is now easier at the end of the season to find such beautiful vintage pieces like this! And considering that we woke up this morning to a few inches of snow, I figured it's not really too late..

Check out these items here in the shop, perfect for chilly Spring days..

tapas and tini's

Over the weekend we had a classy fun bachelorette party for our friend Debbie! 

We took her to Liquid, a tapas and martini bar that recently opened. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is actually forget that you're in Stroudsburg! It was a fun girl's night out, and if you're local, I highly recommend Liquid for a hot date!

travel in style.

I found these beautiful travel bags over the weekend thrift shopping in South Jersey. They would be perfect for an overnight bag, or even for school books. It's funny how often I find really awesome things in pairs or groups. I had just about given up on finding anything special when I came across these bag hanging on a rack practically all in a row. That 4th bag is calling my name..I hope someone buys it quickly, before I change my mind!

I'm off to Lancaster overnight to visit an old friend from college and of course, to do some thrifting...

sheer pink.

I find myself being drawn to fashion inspired by the 1970's more and more lately. If only I were brave enough to middle part my hair...but alas, I really can't rock that look..

I'm feeling pretty great today since as of last night our taxes are out of our hands and are being done by a capable professional. Owning my own small business and being self employed made it too overwhelming this year to tackle on our own! I'm off to list some new items, teach a class this afternoon, and then meet my girlfriend Meredith for dinner and shopping! I'm in the market for some new shoes..
I just listed this sheer pink mini in the shop yesterday if you want to check it out!

bits from my weekend.

Friday we attended Andrew's cousin Molly's beautiful wedding..
Andrew's immediate family..all 9 siblings and parents plus Maria, Lindsay and me! it just keeps growing!
On Saturday we visited the Amish farmer's market where we picked up donuts and other delicious brunch items since we were  celebrating Andrew's parents 30th wedding anniversary this weekend!
Lots of fun, food and family time, followed by a wonderful service on Sunday led by Andrew and his youth group.

I think that I'll be breaking out some of my Spring wardrobe just to mix and match them with my winter pieces during this transitional season...
Just listed this fabulous sweater in the shop!

1970's lace babydoll

As I have mentioned before, working from home allows me to get away with working in my softest, most comfortable clothing and then occasionally spend hours playing dress up for a photoshoot. I brew a pot of coffee, put on some good music, do my hair & make up and then bribe Andrew into taking some photos for me on a lovely overcast day like today.

I am currently in love with this 1970's vintage lace babydoll dress that I just listed in the shop and wish it was my size!

what's new in the shop!

I will be listing some new "upcycled" vintage clutches in the shop this week. This past weekend I set up a stand to sell some of my vintage goodies at a handmade and vintage market a women's conference down at Tuscarora. So I was busy last week making bags and here are a few of the finished products!
