Vintage Inspiration Thursday

Love Etsy. Seriously, in a time when we are all taking our environmental duties more seriously, but corporate giants like Walmart are making everything in our lives so generic, Etsy is a sunny patch of lawn that I want to sit in all day.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week:

I've featured this dress before, but it deserves another nod. From TimesVixenVintage.

Killer vintage leather gloves; and only $14.50! From Prairie Antiques.

Pretty Art Nouveau brooch (could be your 'something blue'). From Purple Daisy Jewelry.

This fascinator isn't vintage (it's handmade) but it sure does look it! From Portobello.

Another handmade item! Who doesn't think this bow tie is rad? From MrEatCi9.

Fab cuff links. From U791688.

Back in the day, men wouldn't leave the house without a fedora (which has been usurped by the baseball hat...ugh). From Crafty Crow Vintage.

Old biscuit and tea tins make wonderful vases for flower arrangements. Look for ones from Holland~they have the prettiest patterns.

If you're planning a small get together, think about purchasing your dinnerware as opposed to renting it. Depression glass comes in gorgeous colors and patterns. Scour tag sales and flea markets for bulk lots, too.

I'm hanky-obsessed. Honestly, I have about 35 different uses for them rolling around in my head. They are great for napkins, wrapped around bouquets (have monogram sewn on the ones for yourself and bridesmaids), passed to female guests before the ceremony, tied around the ring pillow, etc. From Sunn Fox.

Be a rock star. Be kind to mother earth. Check out Etsy.
