Here are some belts that I finished for the store--they actually turned out quite cute--I will be making a few for myself now! $25

tiny earrings

How cute are these tiny earrings that e just finished? Perfect for you or a loved one for Valentines day, don't you think? And at only $24 that is a high cuteness to low dollar factor!

Rebecca Thuss

So, I feel like every blog lately has been giving Rebecca Thuss love--and quite rightly, if I do say so! Go to her website and take a look at her portfolio--from her weddings, to her flowers, to her fashion shoots, she is obviously one of those people who have a perfect styling eye (oh, that I could be one of those people!) The following pics are in her "recent" section, and I am soo taken by them, especially the flower archway. I sense a new project coming up!

Wedding Hive

So, I wanted to post some pictures from that Wedding Hive event we did last week, which was awesome! I have to say a Kudos to the Wedding Hive planners, you did a great job, and there were a ton of people there! The event was at Californo's in their event space, which used to be an old Trolley station, so it is really cool. There would have been more photos, if yours truly hadn't had her camera set to video. I know, I'm a dink.
This is in the main room (we were in the second room) This is at the end of the night when it started to wind down a little.
Here is our little table we set up. What's that you say, you want a closer look at those belts? Well, don't worry you will see them soon...
Here is adorable Donna of Donna's Dress shop--We can't wait to be a part of the Vintage Open House crawl with her on the 7th!
Here is our friend Liz all dressed up for the wedding dress fashion show, with gowns designed by Janay-A--isn't she a doll?

So Sad

I just read via Cup of Jo who read in WWD today that the March issue of Domino will be the last issue ever! So Sad! Goodbye Domino, we loved you!

Morrocan Lace Floor

I love this painted cement floor found over on My Marrakesh. She had the Royal Design Studio come out and spiff up her place (which, by the way hardly needs any spiffing, it is gorgeous!) and this is the floor in her daughter's room. I covet this, but I also know that I would ruin it with scratches and mess. Sigh.

A cat in a sunny spot on a beautiful floor? What more could there be in life?

If I rode a bike, this is how I would dress to do so...
Thanks, Black*Eiffel

Elizabeth Anne Designs

So, apparently I have been living under a rock this month as I just found out that one of my favorite wedding blogs, Elizabeth Anne Designs has chosen us for their blog O' the month! Isn't that the coolest thing ever? EAD has the best info on wedding stuff, especially great little DIY projects and I love to see their ideas for invitations and stationary ( of course that could be because I'm trying to figure that out right now and need all the ideas I can find!) Anyway, even if you aren't in wedding mode, you should definitely give them a look-see...and Thanks so much EAD for making us your blog O' the month!

Taking a trip

If i was taking a trip this weekend, I would go here.

If these are you pics, please let me know so I can credit you..

Cath Threads

Cath Kidston is the best. Why? Because look at how cute her thread and sewing baskets are. I want! But, would you like to know the real hero of the story? The Vintage Magpie's brother, who bought this for her for Christmas. Well done, sir!

Head Case

I love headpiece thingys. These are done by Thelma Design I like the way they are A: Huge and B: More of a crazy ruffle than a flower. Not that I don't like flower things for the hair, but these are a little more interesting. Don't you think?

Ok, so I made the mistake of visiting the Laduree site after doing the last post. Oh, look at these beautiful treats! I would like to live in a room surrounded by them. I don't even have to eat them, just be able to look at them!

yummy cosmetics

How did I miss the very old news that Laduree, French purveyors of everything delicious, did a line for Sephora? Well, I don't feel too bad because apparently it was only available in Europe & Canada, but still. Did any of you see it or manage to get a hold of it?yummy lip glossand macaroon soaps? Yes Please!

Wedding Hive

Hi bon bons!

We will be participating in the the Wedding Hive's indie wedding fair taking place this Thurs. the 22nd at Californos! The event will be super fun for those in the midst of wedding planning, and also those who just want to come look at all the goods! And of course there will be free champagne and appetizers, so that's worth the trip alone.

We hope to see you there!


All in the background

The clothing in these photos don't do much for me, but I love their backgrounds. A cardboard tiger? Awesome. A bajillion pennant garlands? Super awesome. Sadly, I don't remember where I found these, or who did them, so if you know, let me know!

Hello Lucky

I just saw this card from Hello Lucky, and I'm so annoyed because I Love It, but we just placed an order with them and I didn't put it on there! Well, I guess we'll be placing a new one soon, just for you cute card!

Tim Walker

Ha! I bought it!! I gathered the Amazon gift cards and viola, I was on my way to the Tim Walker book! Oh yes, I can't wait for the UPS man to come a knockin' on my door..

Vintage Event

I told you there was an exciting event coming up!.....

Valentine Vintage Open House!

February 7th 11-6
In conjunction with Arizona Trading Company and Donna's Dress Shop

Come to our three lovely stores and see our new Vintage wares! bon bon will be featuring a TON of new vintage jewelry (as well as other stuff) and of course we will make it a party with some nibbles and drinks! And I know there is always a good party at Donna's and ATC! Hope to see you there!

what I wouldn't give...

This room is a slice of heaven. Carved out of a Basement! And not a new-house fancy finished basement, but a real one with leaks and chipping paint (i.e., the kind I will always have). I would love to have this room. Someday I assume J and I will actually buy a house, or at least move to a new one. There will be a room that can turn into this in that house, I can promise you that!
Yvestown, you are the luckiest girl in the world!

Orla At Target!

Ooh, I was just reading Decor8 and found out that Orla Kiely did a whole line for Target! Aiee! It's available Feb 1st and she designed a whole load of ranges. How much will I need as a Spring-is-coming perk up? A lot, so be careful if you are in my way at Tarjay Feb 1st, I may have to break out the elbows.


How is it the 13Th of January already? Last week we were embarking The First Month of the New Year, and it was open to possibilities. Now it is practically the middle of the month! Has anyone started the New Year's resolutions yet? Has anyone given them up?

One of J's resolutions is for us to spend time at the lovely art museums here in town. We went to the Nelson Atkins last week and he has become enamored of the work by Robert and Shana Parkharrison -- which is pretty awesome. For those in town, there is a small exhibition (free) in the Bloch Building at the N.A.
