Kitchen Gadget

My brother and husband love Think Geek. I always thought it was a nerdy guy website but they have proved me wrong.  For my birthday I received this amazing little gadget! This DIY Citrus Spritzer is perfect for adding fresh fruit juice to any dish. You insert the spritzer head directly into the fruit and then you can spray the fruit juice. It sure beats all of the extra leg work involved in slicing fruit, removing the seeds, and then juicing.

Unique Thrift Store

I love Louisville’s Unique Thrift Stores. Located on Preston Highway and the Portland Neighborhood (22nd Street) these stores offer 25% off every Monday and if you sign up for a free VIP card you get 25% off every Thursday! I always find something amazing when I shop there. Always. Last week, my mom and I went and found a five-piece vintage glass set for only $6!

Aaron Marshall, a Louisville designer and computer programmer, recently developed a new iPhone app! Over allows you to add a variety of typography to your photos. The app is synched with other social media programs including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It’s a lot of fun and only costs $0.99!

 

Buttons, Bows and Britches

Fly Away Fox items can now be found at Buttons, Bows and Britches in Louisville! This lovely children’s consignment store is located at the corner of Frankfort Avenue and Cannons Lane in the Crescent Hill Neighborhood.

I will be selling beautiful handmade items for little girls. I have a variety of headbands and hair clips on display and my signature aprons as well.  The little red apron has pockets in the front with a cherry patterned fabric. The other apron is one of my favorites. The fabric features two little children hugging. They look like Japanese anime characters dressed in vintage clothes.  Fly Away Fox aprons are all one-of-a-kind and made with vintage and re-purposed material and each one comes with a removable brooch.

All of my headbands are made with vintage and re-purposed material and my hair clips are all made with eco-felt. I have felt flower clips, felt peacock feather clips and a variety of headbands in all colors.

Buttons, Bows, and Britches is located at 111 Cannons Lane.  They are open Monday-Friday 10AM-6PM.

Tickled Pink

I decided to visit Tickled Pink last week because I have heard so many good things about it. After I arrived and looked around, I thought to myself, “How have I never been here before? This place is amazing!” It was truly amazing. Tickled Pink is a vintage mecca!

Matryoshka Dolls

My parents are constantly traveling around the world and recently my father came back from Russia with gifts! I received a gift of Russian chocolates, tea, coffee and of course… Matryoshka dolls! Matryoshka or Russian Nesting Dolls refer to a set of wooden figures of decreasing size placed one inside the other. They’re beautiful and a fun way to add some color to your home.

Embroidery Hoops

I love Pinterest and one thing I keep pinning is embroidery hoop artwork.  Check out some of my favorite ones and hopefully you’ll get inspired to make some artwork of your own!

Poppytalk Handmade

Poppytalk Handmade is an online curated marketplace offering some of the best designs worldwide.  Exhibitions change each month consistently offering fresh new designs. Any artist may submit their work to be included and it’s worth the try because Poppytalk receives traffic of approximately 1 million pageloads a month!

Poppytalk Handmade promotes each chosen artist on the front page and also offers them a separate page where they may include a biography and photographs of their work. Poppytalk sends consumers directly to the artist’s online shop so that the sellers may buy directly from the artist.

The new exhibition launches on June 4 so hurry up and check out these current items before they disappear! Here are a few of my favorites.

Grandma’s House

Lately my Grandma has started giving me and my sister vintage goodies every time we visit.  Most of the items no one else appreciates so it’s great for us! The other day we hit the jackpot! I received a vintage teapot my Grandmother’s friend made in 1957, a milk glass pitcher, a vintage plate another one of my Grandmother’s friends made, and a vintage French glass canister.

The plate is a mosaic with ceramic leaves. Both it and the teapot have gold accents (the plate is gold underneath and the teapot has a gold handle)

 

The French canister has “Le Parfait” engraved in the glass and the pitcher has images of grapes and fruit. The milk glass belonged to my great-grandmother.
