Fresh Eggs Vintage

I’ve talked about Stephanie DosReis before but did you know that she changed the name of her etsy shop from Ponies & Sugar Cookies to simply Stephanie DosReis where she sells her crafty things (like fabric houses)?

And did you hear that she also has a 2nd store on etsy selling vintage wares, it’s called Fresh Eggs Vintage. These vintage S+P shakers for $10 are my personal faves because I have a bit of a crush on pyrex.

I’m inspired by ladies like Stephanie – the various things she’s into, the great big life she’s living, it’s the best. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can only wear one hat in this life, the more hats you wear the better because then you’re flexible and a hard ship to sink. Congrats Stephanie on Fresh Eggs Vintage and the many wonderful things that you’re pursuing.

I especially like this shot of a table in her house where she’s arranged some of the things that are inspiring her lately – all finds from places like etsy and ebay of course. I spy this and this. :)

Charliemotel is a darling business owned by Megan and husband Dylan in the UK. They run their own design and production company, Colour Mafia, that keeps them quite busy, but on the side Meg decided to recently set up shop on etsy as an escape to pursue a creative life free of the pressures that come with taking on clients in her ‘day job’.

The creative process.

Here’s a glimpse of some of her illustrative work, she seems to really fancy sweet little deer, pretty little girls in sweet outfits, and pretty pastels.

Charliemotel carries writing sets, badges, gift tags, cards, prints, and so many pretty things you’ll want to fill your cart so you can have plenty on hand for gifts!
