The Vintage Afterlife: It's a Wrap!

December seemed to fly by so fast this year that I haven't even been able to keep up with all the chocolate in my advent calendar. If you're like me, you might not have gotten around to much holiday decorating either, in which case, here's an idea for how vintage can save your Christmas!

All you need is a few simple frames (I used plain white ones from Ikea), some vintage wrapping paper cut to size, and voila. It's a wrap!

Have fun decking your halls! Merry Christmas!

P.S. Vintage napkins (or any other vintage ephemera with a holiday theme) will do just as well.

The Vintage Afterlife: Tier-y Eyed

Obama's presidential win and subsequent speech moved me (and probably half the world) to tears last night. On a much smaller scale of global significance but nevertheless very dear to my heart and home, my recent Mauerpark fleamarket find has also brought tiers to my eyes.

Tea hee hee...Aren't I punny? ;o)

I scored this lovely little cakestand (which is a mere 25 cm tall) for a single euro (gasp). And I can't wait to back to Mauerpark next Sunday and treasure hunt for more! But I never have afternoon tea parties (if anything, I invite friends over for German-style coffee and cake), so here are some fun, non-trad uses I've come up with:

in the entryway:
pocket change, lip balm, keys
(the little things you always need but can
never find when you're sprinting out the door)

on the dressing table:
earrings and brooches
(perfect for rings too!)

on your desk:
binder clips, plastic tabs, rolls of tape
(makes any 9-to-5 a delight!)

in the bathroom:
bobby pins, tweezers and dental floss, cotton pads and q-tips
(the ultimate accessoire for any bathing beauty!)

and back in the entryway:
aspirin tablets, cough drops, Emergen-C
(I had these as "party favors" for guests at
my karaoke cocktail party the other week!)

Immaculate Heart @ Dawanda's Make It! Shop It! Blog It!

This completely slipped my mind! The other week, Immaculate Meg and I attended Dawanda's Make It! Shop It! Blog It! event, featuring inspirational talks from Holly (decor8) and Nicole (Luzia Pimpinella). I even made it in the cut for the wrap-up video (for better or worse!). Check me out showing off my diy screenprint and plugging Immaculate Heart:

The Immaculate Collection: Online Starting Monday, September 8th!!!

After the last sekt, the burial of Immaculate Heart at Rosa-Lux 28 in Berlin and its subsequent resurrection online, it is now finally time for our official ascension into the virtual Dawanda heavens. Allelujah!

Here are some photos featuring "The Immaculate Collection," our debut line which will be going on sale starting today or tomorrow (depending on which time zone you're in)!!! We hope you find our first collection as divine as we do. Please keep in mind that all our items are vintage and therefore one-of-a-kind. So once they're sold, they're gone for life everlasting! But you can add us on myspace or subscribe to our blog (see sidebar) to receive updates about new store arrivals and future collections.
