Man, I’ve missed blogging, but here’s why I’ve been absent.
I’ve been bizzily making “stuff” like this,
using old wood salvaged from our Dutch colonial!
It’s reversible! 2 X’s the fun!
It’s also currently for sale in my brick-and-mortar space, or store:
I call my biz REDBIRD Vintage Home,
+ I really couldn’t love anything more.
I share my space with 12 other vendors in this new-ish cool store:
Let’s have another look-see at REDBIRD.
Here I am, at left, inside my space,
with 2 of my high school classmates who visited last week!
Guess the name of our high school.
I’ve been making + selling pillows for several years.
I have an etsy shop for them, plus 2 galleries sell them for me —
1 in Jackson Hole, WY + 1 in Los Angeles.
Lately, I’ve focused more on signs + furniture + other “stuff”.
By “other stuff”, I mean measuring sticks.
Here is a close-up of a couple:
Wow, all that old chippy paint — I love it!
I like to think of these as the world’s hippest growth charts
or just a cool, industrial accent.

My plans are to combine my work
with other “merch” that I order for the store,
like these glove molds from NYC:
. . . and this fabulous-ness from New Hampshire:
Meanwhile, it’s time to view a few more of my projects!
I love the word “HOME” + opted to stencil it on this old, wooden step ladder:
Next up, I stenciled a faded Frenchie stripe on some off-white canvas,
+ G.O. used it to reupholster this old, red metal mechanic’s stool:
This cute table was tricked out in a Swedish kind of way:
Check out how I lined those drawers.
It’s old Mary Emmerling wallpaper from a recent past bathroom of ours!
A pub table turned a little British with its stylized Union Jack top:
. . . and a couple more vintage items received their RedBird crosses:

So. What’s going on over at the Dutch colonial? — you ask?
THE SIDING IS DONE!
Next up (soon!): tricking out THAT PORCH!
