pretty pastels








I recently joined Pinterest and love looking at other people pins, there's so much inspiration in one place. I found these beautiful images all evoking the beauty of spring from Tinas's board and it had me dreaming of a real spring weather.

This weekend I didn't do any thrifting at all, but did some yard work and also had a nice intimate dinner with the mister at our favorite italian place and went for a leisurely walk on the mall right after, which seemed  a little weird now that I don't ever visit the mall anymore,  I would be looking at a Coach purse and telling myself just how much vintage items I can stuff my car with that price.  But this weekend I feel like treating myself a little so we stopped by at H&M- the only clothing shop that carries nice, inexpensive clothes that does not make me feel guilty of buying. I bought a couple of nice shirts and a top and a pair of sandals, and I can't wait to wear them outside without having to wear socks and jacket.

inspiration Friday



I took these photos from my front yard yesterday after the rain stopped.  We've been having lots of April showers here in Seattle as of late and I love it; there's nothing like the distinctive fresh smell after the rain, and the pretty flower buds popping everywhere this time of year. I'm looking forward to do a little bit of gardening this weekend. 

Happy Friday!

new home; shoe form and floral oil painting

I love seeing some of my sold items displayed in their new home, it's especially nice to find they were purchased by my fellow Etsy sellers and also photographer extraordinaire.

Tracey from Tracey Capone Photography shoot and blogged about this shoeform she got from my shop to decorate her new apartment.


I've also spotted this photo from Sara's blog of the floral oil painting she purchased not too long ago. 

Their photography shops can be found here and here.

sneak peek and sale announcement

Hello everyone, hope your weekend is going well. Mine has been busy and long, actually this week has been particularly long with the kids being home for spring break means me working less and entertaining more which is good in a way for someone who's obsessed with work, a little play can't hurt; we were able to ride our bikes one afternoon, do some swimming and enjoyed a picnic by the lake when the sun was out this week. But I have to tell you, I'm so looking forward for Monday, alone, in a quiet house all for myself.

This morning I woke up earlier than everyone else and snapped some photos for the shop preview.  Here are some photos of the new "spring" vintage finds I will be listing starting tomorrow, Monday.





And in other news; Modish Vintage turned three this April! I know where'd all the time go? It seemed only yesterday when I was jumping for joy when I made my very first sale.  And three years later I still jump whenever I sell something, it never gets old.  So in appreciation of the three wonderful years on Etsy, I'd like to offer my customers a great discount.  I'll give you all the details tomorrow, so please come back and check out the sale and my new vintage listings.  See you then!

etsy crush: inaluxe




Today I am starting a weekly feature here I will call Etsy Crush where I will highlight an Etsy shop I really love. I will start with my most favorite art print shop on Etsy: Inaluxe.  They are Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd from Australia.  I just love the colors and the simple modern shapes of their prints and been coveting the second print eversince.  They sure will add so much style and punch of color to any room.

All images from Inaluxe Etsy shop.

in the shop now!




I just added these vintage Japanese wood figures in the shop this afternoon.  How adorable is the little girl in red? and yes that is a kokeshi lamp on the back. 

I will be adding some vintage phones this week too, so look out for those. 

Happy Monday!

inspiration Friday


With all the vases I have laying around the house, I think I'll treat myself to a buoquet of roses this weekend and scatter them around like this on my window sill.  Doesn't this photo look dreamy?
