vintage barwear.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's vintage pitcher and glass set from Robert Henry Vintage. And yet I am!

What a find! Visit InnBrooklyn for great shots of RHV -- one of the most de-cluttered vintage shops I've ever come across.


vintage kicks.

Pink, black, pink, black, pink ...

How do I spend my time? Deliberating.

Today, much brain energy went into deciding between these two pairs of
vintage-style heels from Urban Outfitters.

I ended up with the black, but, really, how could I go wrong?

Black, pink, black, pink, black ...


not so vintage prints.

Sometimes, when I'm feeling azul, I'll "decorate" my future apartment -- at least in my mind. And it lifts my spirits.

This Flowers in May "Baking" print (found via Moa Maria) isn't exactly vintage, but it's cheery all the same. It's currently adorning one wall in my future kitchen -- even though the kitchen (and the future) is not yet within my grasp.

Got a problem with that?


polka dot pumps.

Spring is just around the corner, I'm sure of it! (she says in the midst of a fierce winter storm).

And the optimism continues.

Maybe these polka dot pumps are waterproof?

If only...

vintage teacups.

Please. I want.

vintage candles.

I stole this idea from
Brimfield, one of my favorite new(ish) shops in Andersonville: Mismatched vintage glasses as tea light votives.

Shall we dim the lights?

It's so grandma-chic, I just had to share.


vintage pink.

I went vintage shopping with my mom about a month ago, and she bought me this lovely pink glass dish. It's held many precious items since then, including dark chocolate pretzel bark I made for a dinner party this weekend.

Dark Chocolate Pretzel Bark

+3 bars dark chocolate (the best you can afford)
+1.5 cups pretzels, broken in pieces

Melt chocolate over a double broiler. Stir in half of the pretzels. Spread melted chocolate-pretzel mixture on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Sprinkle remaining pretzel pieces on top. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until chocolate has hardened. Break chocolate into pieces and--this is the most important part--display in darling vintage pink candy dish.

Serve to best friends!
