Wallpaper

Wallpaper doesn’t have to be outdated and boring.  If used properly, wallpaper can add a lot of personality to your home. Use it on an accent wall or in a hallway.   Second Hand Rose has a lot of vintage inspired designs that I love.

Pass the Baton

Pass the Baton has been deemed “the most random recycling shop in Tokyo.”

PASS THE BATON is a personal culture marketplace. By means of a bricks-and-mortar flagship in the center of Tokyo and an online web shop, we offer buyers and sellers a forum for exchange. Items for sale are presented not only through images, but also by a brief profile of the seller and a short anecdote about the item. As a member of PASS THE BATON, people of all backgrounds, from all over the world, can sell as simply as one would at a flea market?but with the added dimension of optioning proceeds to charity.

I went through the shop and found a few fabulous (even vintage!) items to share with you.

Fly Away Fox now has Derby headbands available for sale at Salvo, in downtown Louisville on East Market St.  I wanted to show my interpretation of the big and bold on Derby by creating headbands with large flowers and birds’ nests.

Free Monthly Giveaway

Congrats to Paul for winning the owl giveaway in January! February was a crazy month for me and March has been busy too. Since I fell behind and didn’t do a February giveaway,  I’m doing two giveaways this time!

The giveaways are a cinnamon clove rice pack and two headbands.

The rice pack can be heated in the microwave for 1 minute or placed in the freezer. It’s great for sore muscles and fits around your neck perfectly! It measures about 18 inches long. I love the playful fabric.

The headbands are both handmade. The large one measures 3 inches at the top and features a big kelly green bow on brown Toile fabric.  The smaller headband measures about 1/2 inch and is made with a vintage gray fabric with orange/green flowers.

 

Just comment on this post to be eligible to win! Winners will be announced in early May on the blog.
