That moment when you walk into a room at an estate sale and see a toy you loved as a child that you had completely forgotten about.
I found the most awful shirt the other day at the thrift store. A combination that was so bad – MOCK TURTLENECK & SHORT SLEEVED. But it was on the cutest jersey covered with bunnies and Easter eggs…just not something a grown adult should EVER wear. So I rescued this shirt for 80 cents and transformed it into some adorable spring leggings for Della in just 20 minutes! Here’s how you can do this quick DIY for your kids too:
I’ve kept a number of glass milk jars we’ve gotten over the years from the grocery store. I love the look of them, and think they make cute vases around the house in the summer. But I wanted to fancy one up a bit for spring, so I tried etching for the first time, and love the results!
She’s nearly a year, and I can’t believe it. How did this happen, and so quickly? Each month seems to pass quicker than the month before.

I’ve been in a bit (ok, a lot) of a 90s revival here. Dandy Warhols, School of Fish, REM’s Out of Time, and the Lemonheads have all been in rotation. Also, Nancy Sinatra. And A Flock of Seagulls (yep, seriously).
Shopping and Drooling Over:
I just discovered Bait Footwear and now I need to wear something other than Converse and Dr Martens every day.
O Darling Handmade has got the cutest baby leggings. THE CUTEST.
And other stuff I’ve been loving lately:
Reware Vintage was included in this Metro Detroit vintage shopping round-up on the Chevy Detroit blog. I’m really excited to be included with some of my favorite brick and mortars in this post, and to be the only online shop featured!
What I’ve thrifted lately that found a home with our family:
March is National Craft Month, and so why not learn a new craft to celebrate? My friend Amy and I took a one-evening class on making silhouettes at The Community House in Birmingham, Michigan and had a lot of fun.
The craft was a pretty comfortable project (especially with a glass of wine) and our teacher was very helpful. I’d totally recommend taking a class there if you live in Metro Detroit, and I’m sure I’ll be back again.
LOTS of new vintage T shirts in the shop this week! Some are from Michigan, Kentucky, Arkansas, Florida, Tennnessee and even Germany… my favorites are the two Rollins Band T shirts from the early 90s. Come on over to the shop to check them all out!
