I'm Vintage Challenged,....Literally!!

Michelle Mach is having over on her blog
this fall is almost upon us and I’m basically stressing out!

Okay, Okay,...so I'm not really stressing out,...I’m 'twirling'.

(Those of you who physically know me just got a good visual, didn't you?!)

Any hoo, we don’t actually have to create something
‘vintage’ looking with our components, we can do anything; fall, hip, modern, trendy, rustic, boho,…you get the picture!

But I’ve decided, since it IS called the
that I’d make something completely out of my style element and do something “Very Vintage” as the Challenge title suggests.

"Vintaj" Brass, Co.  - Lovely Goodies!

So, I’ve been playing around with a few of these,….trying to put them with some of the things that came in my
and I think I need more inspiration. 

I need some real “vintage” items to actually hold, touch, smell (yes, there’s a vintage smell to jewelry – trust me!)

I’m going to be putting on some Beggie Adair music this week, sitting down and looking over Grandma Mate’s jewelry,
(yep, they gave that to the right little girl, don’t ya know!)
and seeing what these bits of inspiration can manage to
“Muse-Up” from me.

The “Big Reveal Date” is October 4th – Right Here
and of course,…right here!

So stay tuned and I’ll let you know how it goes. 
Wish me luck!!

Until Next Time,

Peace, Love, and Twirling with Vintage Anticipation!


  1. This looks like such a fun challenge!

  2. Well, I just left my pile of vintage on the table and came to the computer for a brain break. I swear, I have picked up that orange drop/oval a hundred times now! Hoping it will spark after suppertime!

  3. Ooh, I would have trouble doing something completely out of the box, too. If it were me, I'd be looking for inspiration everywhere I turn.
    But since it's you, I know it'll be beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do.

  4. Ooooh, that does look challenging. Can't wait to see what you come up with - vintage is not my forte!

  5. Oh there's some yummy goodies up there! Good Luck Cilla knock them out! : )

  6. Thanks for the well wishes - the components are still staring me in the face as of this morning - I truly hope things change by the end of the day in that regard! :)


Thanks for sharing what you have to say - I love hearing your comments!
