A Year Passed and Seasons were 'Found'

Not going to apologize for almost a year of not blogging...

During this lapse of internet presence, I have been to San Fran to visit the Keane museum (eventually I'll post about this fabulous place and all that it means to me), traveled to England/Ireland/Scotland, am officially an Engineer-in-Training, been promoted to a Construction Manager, and have actively engaged in an alternative institution, called the Flying University, with some amazing colleagues of mine.

Crafting landmarks have included - teaching myself to use my sewing machine, completing two cosplays (Catwoman / Alana from Saga), purchasing my first dress form, and falling back in love with making jewelry! I have a lot to learn with sewing and I'm hoping to break out some vintage patterns soon, but I am so excited to have a new craft.

All the while, I've been running a small vintage business with my fellow vending partner - Blind Cat Vintage. Lots of etsy listings, long weekends thrifting, and constant redecorating has left our space looking pretty snazzy through the seasons. Thought I'd share our booth's seasons at 'Found on Fremont'...

Halloween is our thing - this display was out at the beginning of September and lasted until nearly Thanksgiving. Creepy clown dolls, kitschy halloween books, and jack-o-lantern anything is super fun to shop for. This display would have been better if I hadn't hoarded the goods to decorate my own house.

Thanksgiving, or Turkey Day - We agreed 70's power colors and any bird seemed festive enough for this holiday. 

I've been told our space looks like Christmas "threw up" on it, but I like to take that as an endearing compliment. For two grinches, my space partner and I, really went all out for Christmas. Shop local this season!
