Vintage pillow case to basket liner tutorial…

11 Oct

I did a little guest tutorial over at my Tumblr friend, Annie’s blog, Wattlebird for this cute vintage pillow case turned basket liner…It is a super quick and easy whip-up project and can utilize any fabric to match any decor…Enjoy!

The tutorial can be found here!
If you came over from Annie’s blog, I hope you join me over on my new blog…(I confess, I am a bit unable to commit to one blogging platform!)

I am sharing a little shop update with y’all this morning: for the month of October, vintage beer coasters have free shipping in both my Etsy and Big Cartel stores. Drink up and shop on!

What is to come for June this week? She is opening up her little craft room soon so the stores will be sporting some lovely vintage patterns, linens, and vintage craft supplies! {This addition to the shops is really my “vision” for where June Vintage will shine- fabulous kitchen goods and a great source of vintage craft resources…I can’t wait!} Here is a little sneak peak:

Happy Monday and happy October! {and isn’t fall lovely? I am just in love with it so far!}

How high is the water, momma?

3 Oct

Living on the water has its bonus points, for sure. But after 4 days straight of rain and 23 inches of rain accumulation, we felt like Johnny Cash in his song “Five feet high and Risin‘”: looking for an escape route! This is what our week has looked like:

droplets on the screenrain storm
marooned boat in the backyard

but when we woke up yesterday…we were blessed to be able to walk outside our door and enjoy this:
beach lovin'

dogs on the beach...

It was pure sunshine and happiness!

{On a side note: I am a newbie and novice to photography in almost every way but it was very helpful to me when I started taking the camera setting off auto to know what manual settings people used…So, FYI, I usually record what manual camera settings I use in flickr…}

What are you doing this weekend? Enjoy!

Friday Favorites: Pinterest Edition

1 Oct

If you are anything like me, you discover so many amazing things while browsing through blogs, websites, flickr and Facebook links. My bookmarked favorites were a little out of control- everything from sewing tutorials, inspirational articles, and kiddie crafts to do with my son. Then, I discovered Pinterest… It is like a web-based inspiration board that you can categorize into things that you care about. And, if you chose, you can swap and share with others. Here is a little round-up of my favorite discoveries on Pinterest this week:
