In My Home {Vintage} Mod Table Lamp

It’s embarrassing how long I’ve neglected the blog but here I am, easing back into the blogosphere.  I’ve had a very busy and exciting year with a major life change that has kept me occupied elsewhere.  The shop is still active but the blog, I’m afraid has suffered.  I thought I’d start by sharing a vintage addition to my homethis lovely bright orange table lamp.  I can’t stop looking at it. 😀

Unconventional Gift Boxes for the Holidays

Since the gift-giving season is upon us, I’ve been re-imagining some of our Verdibou finds as gift boxes.  Although I love wrapping gifts in beautiful decorative papers with ribbons and bows, I also feel guilty because all that paper just ends up in the garbage!  I like the idea of just putting a ribbon on a gift or putting it in a re-usable gift bag.  But for that extra-special person, wouldn’t it be fun to have two gifts in one?  I’m thinking a cigar enthusiast would love opening this vintage stogies box to find a special present inside.  And then, the box can be used as storage for small keepsakes afterwards or some other purpose.  What do you think?  Do you have any ideas for other unconventional gift boxes?

When You’re Ready, Vintage Ornament Explosion @ Verdibou

I know no one is thinking about Christmas yet, although I did see some Christmas lights at Target this afternoon sneaking in behind the Halloween haunts.  But when you’re ready, Verdibou has a gaggle of lovely vintage ornaments listed in our Holiday Section on Etsy.  It’s kind of a sparkly, Christmas Explosion! Go check it out. 😉
