"Style is a simple way of saying complicated things."
-Jean Cocteau

Its incredible to finally live in a place where people don't think you're crazy for dressing in clothes that no one else told you to wear.


Being in a much larger city than before, there are so many more options for thrift and vintage shopping. Its been really hard to list some things on Etsy because now I live in a place that I can wear them for myself without my friends telling me I look weird.

"Rita. You look like an old lady"

"Ha ha! What are you wearing? I kinda like it!"

"Only you could pull that off Rita. Wow."

" Babies are such a nice way to start people."
-Don Harold

I've never really had children in my life, even when I was a child I was by myself. Now that I'm living with three and am constantly around many more, I think I've changed my mind about not wanting my own some day.

I love them!

Even though they can drive you crazy, ruin your things, and just all around ruin your day, children are so loving, forgiving, and always are looking up to you how to be a better person.
I'm going to feature two shops today at both ends of the children's clothing spectrum.
Hart and Sew have an incredible selection of absolutely adorable and preppy vintage childrens clothes that are the kind of things you only wish they made in your size!

Wren Willow's selection is all too different, but equally as stylish, with a laid back, comfy-T, super mall sized shop filled with great screenprints for all ages, but primarily for kids.


The best kids song ever.

" A new day"

Success in anything requires perseverance.
You learn from your failures not to give up so soon the next time 'round.

So, if you didn't know, I used to have another vintage shop called ColourShoppeVintage on Etsy. I took terrible photos and had pretty crappy stuff. But this time around I have a huge city to find awesome vintage goodies and a beautiful little setup to shoot my photos in!

I hope you enjoy the new shop, the new blog, and the new me!


I'm not quite sure how Lark Pottery doesn't have more sales, but their pottery is just incredible!
PLEASE check out all their work, especially the close ups. I am definitely not a pottery person, but their vintage style and attention to detail and color matching makes them a definite favorite of mine.
I hope you enjoy their unique style as much as I do!


Some other wonderful pottery
