My Latest Retail Adventure: True North

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:

SO.

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.

Stay tuned.

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.

Winning!

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.
