Vintage, Baby

I've always had a thing for old stuff, you could say I'm a bit of an old soul, so I love the whole vintage movement that's happening with decor. After finding this great vintage-inspired baby shower invitation on, inspired me to create a vintage baby shower board.

My head was whirling with all kinds of fun ideas, but here are a couple of pics I found that represent what I envision as a retro/vintage baby shower for a girl. I think the vintage tin containers are adorable for centerpiece decorations, and you could keep the theme going with vintage toys on the tables, etc. The poms over the dining table are great too - I've been seeing these a lot on party planning websites and you can buy them at Michaels.

For additional decor I thought a vintage candy-shop bar/buffet could be lots of fun, and guests could fill up little bags of the candy to take as favors. The hostesses can all wear vintage aprons (love them!) to add another level to the theme. As another fun additional to the vintage theme, old wive's tales could be posted around the room, or read before the mother opens her gifts.



  1. oh girl! I have been brainstorming about what to do for Macy's 10th birthday party...I could totally use something like this. Thank you! XOXO

  2. I found three websites that give 10 FREE Cards, FREE Shipping and have lots of unique baby showers invitation, personalized Baby Shower Invitations and custom baby shower invitations cards at:

    I have ordered from all three for my pregnancy, baby shower and birth announcements and been very pleased. Take a look and see what you think.

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from. has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards.

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
