Cake Papers


I am a little late in reporting on our graduation trip to Vanderbilt.  As you can see, it was absolutely a picture perfect beautiful day.  Luckily, we had some time to kill between graduation and the post parties.  I was able to sneak away and visit Cake Vintage Table & Home.  I had been coveting their papers from the minute I saw them at several shops in the Chicagoland area.  Discovering that their store was one block down from our hotel in Nashville made the day complete.






If you are ever in Nashville, make sure you add Cake Vintage to your list of must see shops.  There is way too much to look at and I had a hard time deciding which set of papers to purchase.  I could have taken them all home and am just happy they have a web-site to visit when I need more.  The shop is light, bright and full of really clever ideas.  I especially loved the re-purposed chandeliers made out of vintage telegraph lights and spoons.  So what did I come home with?  Take a look!






They are cute, interesting, fun and I bought the polka dot candles there as well.  Love them!

Liebster Award

On January 30th, Suzy from At The Farm surprised me with the  Liebster Award.  I was thrilled and honored that someone from Australia not only visited but also read my Blog and found it worthy to pass on.

I have since learned it is given to new Bloggers with less than 200 followers who have a lovely Blog. I was very touched by the gesture and do believe in passing it on.  The following Blogs are fun, interesting and creative.  Each have their own unique voice and reflect some of my personal interests as well.  I hope you will enjoy visiting them!

Erin from Just Grand.  A wonderful creative kitchen designer, blogger and friend. 

Rachel from Two Dog Pond.  Her original jewelry designs have a lovely vintage twist. 

Kristen from Knitionary.   Pearls of wisdom and an accomplished knitter.

Leslie from Abbey Road Designs.  Beautiful photography and  fun mixed media.

Linda from Me To Thee.  My heart still lies in rural Indiana where vintage thrives!

Liebster Award Recipients are asked to acknowledge the Blogger who presented them the award, display the award, pass it on to 5 other Bloggers with more or less than 200 followers who you feel your friends should visit.  Enjoy!

Vintage Card Catalog

I saw this the other day in the basement at Jackson Square in LaGrange, IL.  Now, wouldn’t this be the ultimate recipe holder for the kitchen?  Actually, I would love to have this for my postcard collection.  Just think, I could spend eternity trying to fill it!
