I LOVE Cambridge Antiques Market

Easily one of the best places I know (not just in Cambridge, but anywhere), the Cambridge Antiques Market is 4 floors of vintage goodness. Last week I saw the sunniest yellow vintage canister set and it was love at first sight. You know that feeling when you walk away from something in a store, and its calling your name? I did it and thought about those canisters all week. I had already purchased my new (old industrial chair) and this beautiful peacock tray 


so, when I got a gift certificate for the market that same day, I knew I had to go back. After a little soap and hot water (they were already in perfect condition) I filled them and put them to work.  

They're where my IKEA jars used to be (those will find a new home in the pantry or on my craft shelf), just below this great free poster I got on re-nest

Three new additions to the kitchen for virtually no money!

1st sales on etsy and new supplies...

So many exciting developments - I made my first 2 sales on this week and I'm hoping to keep the momentum going. Turning my sales into supply purchases this week has been fun. I love shopping and now I can turn some beautiful feathers (pictures this weekend) into new creations. Since my visit home to NYC, I've been building up my millinery supplies and my new project is organizing a functional craft space. So now the space is carved out, a new (vintage) industrial chair has been purchased (picture to come), but the perfect desk has yet to be found. For now, the dining table will remain command central.

Happy New Year!

Jessie M. from Boston recently bought a fascinator to wear out for New Year's Eve. She sent me these pics of her getting ready for the big night on the town - beautiful! Thanks Jessie!
