I have been away from my blog for quite a while. I have a bit more time now to devote to adding content. There are quite a few things I have to tell you!
First, I have some rather exciting news! I was contacted by the asst. costume designer for a new television series and they purchased a lot of inventory from me! I was so excited, especially when I found out the name of the series will be “The Astronaut Wive’s Club”. I lived through that part of our American history and can remember where I was when we first landed on the moon. The show will be about the space race starting in late 1950s and ending in the early 70s. The wives had a club, of sorts, that was formed to offer encouragement and support, as they were the only people on earth who were going through the stresses and fears of having a spouse go into space. The series will be based on a book by the same name. Here are a few of the items they have purchased for the show so far…… I can’t wait to see them in action! It is supposed to air next year.
I went to an amazing estate sale this weekend and found several beautiful dresses. This is one of my favorites. I didn’t see the condition issues until I had purchased it and gone outside and looked at it in the sunlight. There are brownish stains or maybe just soil marks on the white stripes. I am going to try and salvage this dress because I think it is amazing and I love it! Wish me luck. I will keep you posted on the outcome.
I had my first photo shoot today with two new models. I decided to try switching all my thumbnail photos in my shop to pictures with models. My son asked a couple of his friends if they would be interested and here they are……Caroline and Jenna. They were fantastic! And, so fast! Here are some of the best shots….I really love the look of my shop now! I will be slowly replacing all of my featured pictures with these lovely girls as soon as I can!
Sweet as candy!

I recently acquired a whole lot of vintage 60s clothing – high end! I was so excited! I love the 60s – so classic, feminine and well made. Here are a few of the items. I will be listing them for sale in my Etsy and Artfire Shops over the next couple of weeks.
I am happy to introduce you to my niece, Kelly. Kelly has had epilepsy since she was 5 years old. About 8 years ago she adopted Abby, a standard poodle, to be an assistant to her. Abby alerts Kelly when a siezure is imminent, helps guide her to a safe place, and helps her recover. Wherever Kelly goes, Abby goes. Kelly and Abby have been a source of inspiration and education in our town. They have been able to spread the word about what dogs are capable of doing. Abby has been a loyal friend and companion to Kelly as well as a safety net. With Abby aging, Kelly felt that it was time to adopt a second dog so Abby could help train a new puppy. Not long ago Charlie entered the family. He is a “Golden Doodle”. Although still a puppy, he is very large, as you can see! He is very rambunctious and smart and well on his way to becoming a fantastic assist dog for Kelly.
I asked Kelly if she would be interested in modeling for Vintage Runway. She is so pretty and has such a fun personality I knew she would be a great model! She was hestitant until I said that it could help bring attention to the Canine Assist organization. She wants to help spread the word about the wonderful relationship assist dogs have with their owners and how invaluable they are. I am going to donate a portion of each sale to the Canine Assist organization. Be looking for that option on my blog in the near future.
