New Dresser

Check out this fabulous new dresser that just arrived. It's a vintage piece from the late Sixties; solidly built but it needed an updated finish. We covered the dark wood in a coat of cream paint and distressed it a bit.

At 75" wide, it's roomy enough to stash all your stuff. While the perfect addition to any bedroom decor, it would also serve well as a sideboard in the dining room.

We have it priced at a very reasonable $275.

Soldering Surprises!

Soldering Surprises!

A few years ago I decided I wanted to learn the art of soldering charms. I purchased all the stuff and then proceeded to "torture" myself with my new soldering gun! In frustration, I stashed it all away until I found this gal on Face Book. Laurie, from Epiphanies of an Art Girl was offering a Soldering 101 class so I signed up pronto!

I am sharing one of my classmates blog posts about the class because I forgot to bring my trusty camera. Jennifer has a great blog, All Things Belle. Be sure to check it out!

And here is my completed project...tada!

I just discovered a great new shop in my Sugar House neighborhood. Unhinged carries apparel for men & women, jewelry & accessories, gift items as well as the occasional vintage find. Pictured is Corey Folster the proprietor of this cool shop. As Corey explains it, he spent years running shops for other people so he figured it was time to open his own. Corey's gift for visual merchandising is apparent. Unhinged has a fresh "Seattle" vibe that blends perfectly into this funky little Sugar House neighborhood. The merchandise mix includes handmade items, vintage clothing and unique brands including Cheap Monday, Naked & Famous Denim, Goorin Bros. and Alchemy Goods.
