Becoming an Etsy seller we’ve also started shopping local and trying to avoid mass produced department stores. Don’t get me wrong, I pretty much live in Gap T-shirts and jeans, but this Christmas we made many of the gifts we gave or gave gift cards for local businesses. We have a winter garden that has given us much of our green lettuce and spinach. The unseasonably warm weather here in Southern California has given us little peas and broccoli this winter, but we are anticipating our summer garden and can’t wait to try growing some new veggies.
Enough about last year – Beyond the standard “Eat healthy, exercise more” resolution, this year we plan on buckling down and finding new creative ideas for our shop. We love vintage and because we both have crafty skills want to take some of the vintage inspiration and create. After visiting our local library we’ve been researching mid century art and design to get our ideas together. Hopefully we will have some new items to share in a month or so.Personally, I’m looking forward to sewing more. I might even try at my first dress. I’ve always loved taking photos of people, dogs, or anything artsy so I’m going to take a class on using all of the functions on my camera. Jeremy is also teaching me to use power tools and we are working on some projects together. If nothing else, I might help get some of his projects done to clear out some space in the garage.
Thank you for following us this last year. We look forward to sharing much more vintage, weekend finds and more. Here's to a great year.
