November Newsletter - Stella & Dot


Meet Maeve...

I have definitely been MIA for the latter half of October if you didn't notice...
Well there was reason for that...
I still wish I hadn't only made it half way through my 31 days goal, but there are really good reasons...

Meet Maeve.

Click to visit our website!
 Maeve Vintage that is... A rentals & events company that my mom, sister, & I are starting...

Yes, I know I always have a lot on my plate, but this one is taking precedence over MANY things, excluding Baby Kakes, Mr. K, and my job.

Please please please go to our website www.maevevintage.weebly.com and check it out!  We've got current Inventory on there AND we are always looking at new pieces!

Then go to our Indiegogo Campaign and pledge if you can, but please SHARE SHARE SHARE!
We will be serving Fort Wayne & Surrounding Areas as well as Indianapolis & Surrouning Areas

When it's all said and done we have a pretty high goal, but we really need to acquire a storage space or storefront -- It will depend -- and a vehicle to use to transport all these items.  Dream Big, right?  And if the goal doesn't seem a bit scary then it's not big enough!

Well these dreams are big and we are going for it!  With only one other vintage rentals company in Indiana, and none in Northeast Indiana, we are very excited and looking forward with moving on with this goal and company!

So here's a few of our current pieces...

And we are starting a blog for the company that will be located at www.maevevintage.blogspot.com and we are looking forward to creating inspired looks, tablescapes, and rustic, whimsy, chic vignettes!  

You will love!  I promise!
And I'm so excited and ready for this that I can't wait to share our amazing success as it happens!  



31 Days // FAIL

Apparently I can't commit to anything...
I thought the 31 days thing I could totally do, but then I hit Columbus Day and was done... What happened?
Life Happened as it always seems to do. 

I'm going to work on my time management skills...
Working on REALLY using my planner right now and updating my Google Calendar to keep track of whats happening...



31 Days (Late) // Easy (Free) Crafting


I tend to have burlap laying around my house usually and my table was feeling a little blah... With a little extra time on my hands these days because of the government furlough, I decided to do a quick diy table runner.  And by quick I mean super quick and super easy.

Step One:
Lay out the Burlap on the table so you can decide width and length.

Step Two:
Pull out a string of the burlap where you'd like to cut.  This makes cutting straight lines on burlap MUCH easier!

Easy burlap table runner.

I did choose to pull a few strings off the end to give it a more frayed look...
Maybe I'll make a more complicated one when I figure out how to use my sewing machine!


31 Days (Late) // Craigslist Finds


Does anyone else adore craigslist like me?  Even if there is a little bit of danger involved??

I recently sold these chairs on Craigslist

And am still trying to sell this table...

But I have some great pieces from Craigslist in my house... Like this chair...which is now slipcovered.


And this trunk...

And E's Kitchen which has seen better days but I couldn't pass it up at $40

And this amazing buffet that I will never let go of...


But recently I've been looking for odds and ends and come across some of these great finds!

This would be really cool spray painted gold or a fun funky color... then I'd add a rounded piece of glass or acrylic to the top, but for $129 it's not bad...  I recently saw Sabrina Soto recreate something like this on her High/Low Project.

This table is very cool and the perfect conversation piece for a reading room or living room.


I am seriously in love with this sofa and have seen it a few times before...


These have a great shape and would look really good reupholstered in a strip or ikat (my fave).  And the price is right at $50 for the pair!


I love little end tables like this.  They are different and provide storage! This one is a bit pricey at $100 but it says it's an antique.

Those are my favorite finds for today...
More craigslist stalking another day...



31 Days // Breast Cancer Awareness


Well it's not a super happy thing, but it makes me happy that we celebrate the survivors and those who've struggled with the awful disease of breast cancer. 

But this month, as always we've partnered with the Noreen Fraser Foundation and are giving 100% of the proceeds of the pieces below!  October only so get shopping via the link below and pick one or two or all but seriously, the Hope necklace and Frida scarf are my favorites!!!

Plus, place an order through this link http://bit.ly/18RSlI4, my Breast Cancer Awareness Month Show, and you'll be entered to win one of our Wild Hearts Scarves! 

See Giveaways make me happy and it makes me happy that I can help out with such a great cause! 

I know we all know ladies (or men) who have been affected by this crazy disease and this is a fun way to give back and take part in finding the cure! 


31 Days // I Love Pickles Halloween


Can I just say that I'm so excited that (1) I'm checking an item off my bucket list AND (2) I'm not even put out any for doing it!  I keep making my money back and then some... Hope I'm not jinxing it! 

But I Love Pickles is our Booth at a little Noblesville Antique Store, Whimzy and I recently decorated it for Halloween.  What do you think?

And if you are close to Noblesville, you should stop by the Square for this Friday's

Annual Witch's Night Out!

Friday October 11 2013
5:00-9:00 pm.

First fifty witches wearing a witch hat will receive a FREE GIFT!

Whimzy is just across the street! 



31 Days // Stella & Dot


It's been a little while since I shared my love for Stella & Dot so it's about time we revisit the topic.

Plus, it makes me happy! 

And to my suprise this morning while perusing through my blogs on a quick break in the day, I came across this post from The EveryGirl which features our CEO & CCO.  -- Love them both -- 


Did I mention that I was called up to the stage at our recent HOOPLA event?!?

S&D is changing the lives of women everday and making us all a little more fashionable while doing it!

31 Days // Fabric Samples


Ever get that happy feeling inside that your home is finally starting to come together?!

Me either.

But I love trying!

So today when I got a few fabric samples I was completely inspired and in love with 4 out of 6 of my picks!

Here are the winners...

But I got this faux bois pattern too and I think I'm in love... (It's added below)

Can you guess where they'll end up?!?
Here's what I'm thinking... I think...

I am pretty happy with my internet coordination of colors and patterns!
Done any fabric shopping lately?



31 Days // Inside Halloween Decor


Happy Halloween Decor.

My hubby joked this weekend that I might like to decorate more than he does...
And I do like it a lot...
Not quite as much as him...

But I do, so I decided to decorate inside this weekend.

Along with finding many great things in my Halloween box from last year, I created a few banners, and found a few more CHEAP goodies at Dollar Tree.

And my husband continues to scare me with Wendy the Witch. 
This time it was in my car.  

And this afternoon it was in the pantry...

Yes, I scream every time. 


31 Days // New Haircut


I can't remember the last time I had a haircut..
