SLIDER

Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

NEWSLETTER

I'm such a fan.

What are you up to this weekend? My hubby is out of town of for the weekend.  He is at his yearly manly man- no girls allowed camping trip called Sausagefest.  The boys think they are so clever for coming up with such a clever name.   So since he is out of town- you know what that means!.  Girls weekend! I think some of my girlfriends might kidnap me out for martinis and some 80's dancing... I do a mean walk like an Egyptian. :)
My dear friend gave me a vintage fan- and look how super amazing it is.  We swap vintage items that we know the other collects.  I just love having a vintage swap buddy it makes the vintage items that I am thinking about find me so much easier.  She collects anything with an old photo.  :)  I have been thinking about lots of vintage lately but haven't had much luck on the hunt.  Actually zero luck! Maybe this weekend I will have a little bit of luck.
Of course little puggers had to get his picture taken.  He is so demanding and such a diva... not sure where he gets it from... Have a super weekend.!

That fan is awesome! It will definitely add a cute vintage touch to your room, and it's so cute you exchange vintage stuff with your friend!

such a cute pup. i looove the idea of a 'wives club' like you mentioned on my blog! haha my hubby is a volunteer fireman (soon to be paid fireman), so i totally feel like 'fire wives' are a club! it's strange, but i hope to fit my way in somehow. have a great weekend!

I've been keeping my eyes open for a fan like this one - such a great swap! Also, I love girl weekends. I usually sneak in a few thrifting hours ;D

Michelle Brunner said...

I adore that vintage fan! I just started doodling fans in my sketchbook this past week also...they are so cool (no pun intended!) I would LOVE a vintage swap buddy. What a great idea!

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

Awesome fan! I wish I had a vintage swap buddy!

AJD ∞ said...

Um. My dog seems to reflect my personality, too. How strange! & when I noticed your post today, I was a bit jealous. My bedroom is screaming for a fan. Maybe I'll have to start searching for a vintage fan myself...

LENA said...

sausagecamp? Something tells me I wouldn't like it, even as a man. Do something very girly in return and have fun this weekend!!

A Lost Feather said...

girl weekends have to happen when boy weekends are happening.. i think it's a rule! :) have fun!

Kendra Sue said...

Wow! I ran into your blog and I really enjoy it. You are my hero for just painting full time. My dream some day. I went to school in art, but I'm not brave enough yet to strike it on my own. :)

Vanessa, Take only Memories said...

What a cool fan!

Tang said...

That sounds like so much fun! I love girls' weekends.

kira said...

I love that the guys name their outing. Sausagefest is pretty hilarious. My husband does one of those about once a year as well. I'm not sure if they name their camping trip though. I should ask :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Love your vintage fan! And your cute dog!
I hope you had a fun girls weekend!

Oh, My Darling said...

Hah! I love that he calls the boys' weekend Sausagefest.
