I Am In Love

I purchased a Squeezebox Radio where I can listen to music from all over the world. Well the other day I found a channel called UK 1940's Radio.

I love it!!!

The announcers are so cool to listen to and the vintage advertising  and wartime warnings are very interesting.

The announcers talk about upcoming events in the area i.e a dance in the heart of Bronte country (sigh). I would love to hop over to a dance in the heart of Bronte country.

I thought this cover graphic was so cool.
Check it out.

New Vintage Journals At Fancy That

Here are three new journals that I put in Fancy That inside Bliss Cupcake Shop.

This journal is covered in my 1798 newspapers and embellished with various British themed images. 

The back

The inside.

Next is my Vintage Original Journal. These vintage journals are made from original clippings from the Oregonian  1932-1939

Buy a piece of history.

Each handmade journal is covered with a firm coat of Mod Podge to make it durable.

All of these will be available tomorrow at Fancy That

Harry Potter Mail Box

My boys had a brain storm and decided to get creative. Here is what they come up with.

They took two unfinished wooden mailboxes and sprayed walnut ink on them. They used a damp paper towel to rub the ink in.

Once they got the ink on they let it dry. Next they glued Harry Potter paper and embellishments on the mail box. Then I hot glued Styrofoam balls on the top and they glued feather on it complete with eyes and beak.

Each box is the house they liked in Harry Potter. Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. They wrote letters of acceptance and addressed them accordingly.  One letter goes to Harry the other to a Mr. Boot who lives in Cardiff.

The mailboxes turned out very cute.
