creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

domestic vintage

I love everything about being domestic…keeper of my home.

truth be told, most days I really stink @ it, but I still ♥♥♥ it…I never lose hope that I’ll get better  😉

vintage ironing board…and surely you know that I really, really love all things vintage ~ so, to combine the two makes my heart soar…

Just look @ this ironing board.  It’s so old and has been well-loved.

vintage ironing boardThere is layer upon layer…the original still intact…and the original red paint looks like new!

Oh my!  How did these get here?

They are in my shopping cart as I write and they are giving me fits (not kidding, my stomach is twirling)!!!!  Should I or Shouldn’t I????  I’ve been holding onto my birthday $ since August for the perfect pair.  I may have found them.

  4. I love the boots. I haven’t been on here in weeks, life is crazy. Really like the pics of Chaps (I think that was the name). It looks like a fun place for lunch and the owner sounds like a wonderful woman. Lizzie looked great and loved the boot with the dress.

    I hope you have a great week.
