Princess in Training

Hi Everyone,

Hope that everyone is doing well and planning to have a wonderful Holiday weekend.   I will be busy getting my "Charm" on, preparing for the Amish Auction on September 8th. 

I wanted to pop in and share with you this cute glass block.    It would be  really cute in a little girls room to use as a night light or just for decorations.   The picture really doesn't do it justice, it is soooo.... cute!  Love the sparkle of the tiara and wand nestled among the feathers of the boa. 

I will be linking up with Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.  Drop by for a visit and get inspired with all the Pink listings. 

Stay Charmed!

Memory Pillow

Memory Pocket Pillow

Today's post is short and sweet.  I have been busy getting ready for shows that I have signed up to participate as a vendor.  It seems as if things are coming together slowly and I am starting to panic, as the first one is only a few weeks away.  I know it will all be okay and I really should just quit stressing.

I thought I would share this  memory pocket pillow that I have made using a vintage doily.   This would be a lovely pillow to hold memories of cherished loved ones.  What you could put in the pockets are endless.  I bought this picture during one of my visits to an antique shop.  The postcard was made from graphics from the Graphic Fairy and then I just tucked in a vintage handkerchief.  I think I will make up a few of these for my booths. 

Hope you are having a wonderful week.  I am linking up with White Wednesday at Faded Charm.

Stay Charmed,

Chip off the Ol' Block?

I gave my Scarecrow block a new twist this year.  He now has a smiling friendly face on burlap and a crow has decided to take up residence on his head.  He is really CuTe!!! 

So let me know do you think he is a chip off of the ol' block?  You can see last years block here

Stay Charmed,

Rock N Roll Onesie


Hi Everybody,

Hope you are having a great week, luckily Friday is  just around the corner. I thought I would pop in and share a custom order that I made this week.  This customer was wanting one of my onesies, but wanted it with a little bit of Rock n Roll.  Hopefully, I pulled it off.  Love the trim that I found from Paper Mart.  It has that metal look but is soft and flexible for little ones.  Of course, it was hard for a pink lover to do a black and silver onesie, but I love the way that it turned out. 

I will be making more in a few more colors.  At the moment I am taking custom orders on this style of onesie.  So feel free to contact me if you are interested.  

Stay "Charmed",

Fleur De Lis

Repurposed From Vintage Ceiling Tile

Fleur de lis 

My newest design to go with the crosses and wings made out of the vintage ceiling tiles.  Really love the way this turned out.  This fleur de lis has been painted with pale Blue then a shaded with Key West.  Taupe and Terra Cotta was added to give it a rusty and aged effect.

Hope that everyone has a wonderful week.

Stay Charmed,

Mixing It Up

MIXing It UP

I have taken a big step up with Shell's Vintage Charm, last night I moved into a vendor booth space at The Mix in Ada, Oklahoma.   It is a really awesome store and I hope that I do well!  It is exciting and frightening at the same time.  I will continue to sell items on Etsy and I am booked for craft shows until December.   I am going to be very busy!!!

I really must thank Angela and Victoria for helping me arrange and set up my space and for putting up with me and encouraging me along the way.  Thank you both!!! 

Here are some of the pictures from my space.

This is old antique dresser belonged to my great aunt.  It was in pretty bad shape, so I decided to paint it with a coat of white paint and use it as a display piece.

Ms. Shabby has joined me on adventure. 

Antique ceiling tile crosses and wings. 

Hope you have enjoyed the tour of my little booth.  As you can see I have plenty of room to grow and  I will be adding new items regularly. I am looking forward to this new adventure and hope you will continue to join me along the way.   I have made such wonderful customers and new friends since I have started Shell's Vintage Charm. 

I will be linking up this week at White Wednesday at Fade Charm Cottage and Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound, be sure to go by and visit for all the lovely inspiration. 

Stay Charmed,
