Cold Days...

Hello Lovelies!

I hope those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are staying warm. It's been cold here at the Mill for sure. I have so much to share as usual! First, my Time print was featured in a beautiful Treasury by a fellow Maine Team member. Great items here. Thank you!


And, since you all seem to like my tales of junking and salvage, I wanted to show you the cutest cocktail picks I found the other day. I really like vintage barware and the occasional cocktail pick or swizzle makes it in if it's especially unique. Look at these little guys! I believe these were made by Carstairs White Seal Whiskey, a brand that I think is still being made? I love the peppermint striped string on that one. Neat stuff.


While we're on the subject of salvage, I found the neatest salvage site the other day. Agent Gallery Chicago, is a high-end salvage shop that makes even everyday objects look like works of art. They have some dental/optometry items that are wonderful. Oh, I wish things like this were in my budget...


I have found a wonderful newish shop on Etsy recently that I wanted to share. Ghosthaus sells one-of-a-kind art pieces that combine conduit boxes, lights and old slides to create warm little vintage vignettes. I think these are wonderful and I plan on purchasing one soon. In fact, the shop owner is very sweet and said he would set aside any carnival/circus slides he happens upon and make one especially for me! Love it.


Totally random, I know Christmas is behind us, but I was on the Twig and Thistle blog the other day (which is wonderful), and I happened upon a circus-themed Christmas... Needless to say that's what I'll be doing next year. Aren't these ornaments the bees knees?


And finally, the whole Alice in Wonderland craze has everyone getting into the act and my favorite artist Camille Rose Garcia is no exception. She has illustrated a brand new version of Alice and it comes out tomorrow! I have already pre-ordered mine via Amazon. Wonderful things here...

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Those little cocktail picks are so cute! My mother in law has a collection of swizzle sticks from different restaurants and bars from the 50s and 60s... kind of wish places still had them!
