Lately, I’ve been working like a BEE!
10 + 12 hour work days, in fact!
(I didn’t know I could still pull those off!)
Anyway, here’s why:
I’m joining this awesome co-op happiness
+ will soon have another retail space for
RedBird Vintage Home!

I have been having the time of my life,
seeking out vintage stuff to repurpose.
Here are some photo ops of a few of my ‘finds’:
We’ve not yet decided what to do with this great metal desk.
Wouldn’t it be cool in my 9-year-old grandlad’s room . . .
. . . paired with this equally cool vintage rolling stool (in progress)?
Our plans include reupholstering the stool’s seat,
using vintage ticking stripe fabric.
Meanwhile, here’s more chippy, yellow metal:
Did we all get the memo that the color yellow is trending now?
I think it’s as cheerful as all get-out!

Of course, I’ve been sewing like the wind, too.
What do you think of this letterpress-style pillow?
I’ve always had good luck with city ‘merch’.
Fingers crossed these will sell like hotcakes!
And now . . . a few close ups!
I love the texture of the canvas!
I purposefully stencil with a light touch,
as I think it makes my pillows look more vintage.
Speaking of vintage, I always use old buttons for my pillows’ closures.
