Deb Love Colors

Some quick news here, I was on the We Love Colors Style Blog today!

What Makes A Collection?

 Collections are a complicated thing.  For one thing,  what makes a collection? Is it the amount? The thing itself?  What's hot at the moment?  The answer is, anything could be really.  The collecting rules that I have put in place for myself  are quite simple. More than three items means I collect it (I know it sounds silly, but hey I am making up the rules). The second rule is that there can be no repeats. To prevent myself from becoming a hoarder a couple years ago after I went on a Pyrex buying binge , I said no more doubles, if something breaks it breaks. Honestly, who needs four pink Pyrex pie plates?  Lastly, make sure it's something I really like, meaning just because a friend starts collecting something , does not mean I need to join in. With all that in mind , my collections must be objects I really like, not fifty of the same thing, and have meaning.

 Here are some of my collections, and a couple of Wolfgang's small collections that adorn our home.

Bits & Pieces

Happy start of the week everyone. I am happy to share some "Bits & Pieces" from today.  The bits and pieces post is a weekly segment that Miss James of Bleubird vintage shares with her readers every Friday.  A short but sweet picture story of her favorite highlights from throughout her day. It is my pleasure to bring you my "Bits & Pieces" of our laid back Sunday.

1. My feet in the alley with the first red leaf I saw. 2. Crepes and inspiration. 3. Cool crisp afternoon stroll. 4. Ironing vintage dresses. 5. A friend posing in a vintage dress for my shop. 6. A new pillow case. 7. Salvaged mint sink. 8. Our shadows. 9. Vintage bike. 10. My dear Toasty cat. Hope you enjoyed my "bit and pieces"!

How Break In Your Clogs

I'm so excited about all the new friends I have meet since starting to blog, it is a difficult process to make yourself stand out amongst all the other talented bloggers out there.  I was so pleased to have Ugglebo Clogs become such a good friend. We share such a passion for quality made styles of the past. Their clogs are true to their classic modern style , and are delightful to wear with both my vintage and new clothing.  I can't wait till they launch their new site next week, I'm sure my clog wish list will grow even longer!

Whenever I get a new pair of shoes I put them through a rigorous breaking in process, well not really, but with clogs it is imperative to give them a chance to break in. Here is my go to guide I use to break them in while doing house work.
