As you may know, certain American Vintage candles scents are made only during certain times of the year. This means that we order early because they do sell out. We received a shipment today, so this is what we currently have in stock:
~ Jingle Bells
~ Ginger & Fig
~ Evergreen Citrus ~ Lemon Parsley ~ Lemon Custard ~ Pomegranate Apple
When I was a kid I loved playing board games (and Barbie dolls) with my friends. Nope, we didn’t have computers, video games and television sets in every room of the house. These were also the days when my mom MADE me play outside until supper time.
We just got a load of board games here at the shoppe (see pictures below) that I know you all are dying to play … with cocktails, of course. All of the games have all of the pieces and some have never been opened. List is as follows:
We had a great time (as usual) at the annual Fishtown “Meet the Neighbors“. Got to hang out with my friends and fellow small businesses, along with a bunch of people that live and love Fishtown.
Yep, I won another auction raffle – a basket donated by The Pickled Heron which I have never been to, but have been meaning to visit for a while now. My buddies Leo and Nancy from Fishtown Lawyers (this is who I run to with all my legal stuff) and Beth and Andy from Beth Blinebury Design (this is who you need for web/marketing/branding) won stuff, too. Great night and lots of fun (aka heavy drinking) had by all! Great job to Fishtown Neighbors Association for planning and hosting this great event!!
Mother’s day is coming up this weekend and what better way to say “I Love You, Mom” than one of our delicious Americana Vintage candles? Supply is tight because they are going fast, so pop on in and get yours!!
It’s amazing what a little bit of paint can do. Here is a table that I picked up at a yard sale for a few dollars. Super sturdy, but not very pretty. With just a little bit of paint and imagination, look at what you can do to upgrade and make it pretty. I took off the old handle and replaced it with the stylish knob. This only took me a day to complete. Come visit us at Keys to the Attic to see other pieces that we finished and we’ll teach you how to do the same thing!
Collection of McCoy, Hull and USA pottery at Keys to the Attic
Beautiful table setting using planters
Something that I’ve been collecting for years is McCoy, Hull and USA planters. I especially tend to gravitate toward the green colors. The funny thing is that I don’t think I have ever used any of them as a planter. I’ve decided to thin out a little from my collection to make room for other things, therefore have a nice little stash of these planters for sale at the shoppe.
Just to give you some ideas, here’s some of the things that I’ve either used or plan to use the planters for. So many of these ideas are so classy and take the place of using tacky plastic.
Containers for soaps, cotton balls & q-tips
Containers for pens, post-its and other office stuff
Dining and entertaining settings (see above)
Hold bedside table stuff
Dog or cat food dish (I admit I’ve never done this)
