Big news. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

4 Aug

I’ve been keeping something from you. A secret. A BIG secret.
And now that the paperwork is signed & the keys are *almost* in hand, it’s time to share.
……….

{verdigreen} is opening a store in our beloved town of Montclair!

How cute is the building? It’s located in MC’s “GLAM” district and is also home to Modern Yarn, another creative outlet shop. 🙂

I have much more to share but for now we are clinking glasses and pinching ourselves. A dream come true!

Salvage ATL – Holy! What the? F it! I’m doing it.

10 Apr

This Saturday is the Salvage ATL event where my lil’ vintage line {verdigreen} is debuting in the real-space marketplace.

I have mixed feelings of excitement and terror as I consider my presence outside the safety and comfort of the Etsy interwebs.

To try and take my mind off the mounting to-do-list of funnery for the event, I created an Etsy treasury to highlight some of my vendor-mates.

They’re full of unparalleled awesomeness so the curation of their shop pieces had the opposite effect and now I’m feeling even less at ease. So here I sit, sipping Green Tea Ginger Ale which is almost as good as a beer.

Please come visit me, in BOOTH #1 (wh-wh-what?) this Saturday from 11am-6pm & bring me a PBR (the event sponsor – total score) to calm my nerves.

Can’t Sleep – Allergies Win

4 Apr

Insomnia is not something I am EVER afflicted with until tonight after 2 rounds of allergy meds appeasin’ my sneezin’. Today has the potential of being rough. The optimist in me thought since I was up I should be productive so after putzing around on Twitter and FB and Etsy I opted to create a Treasury (a curated collection) loosely based on Game of Thrones. 

While I’m here and since it’s been seemingly difficult to tend to my WP of late, I’d also like to mention that I am besides myself with anxiety (the good kind, if there is such a thing) about the upcoming Salvage ATL event. I am honored to have been invited/accepted onto their list of vendors as I am a mere novice amongst ATL greats in the vintage community. I want to treat this as a learning experience since it’s my first foray into the actual marketplace (versus my virtual vintage {verdigreen} on Etsy where I normally live). But I’m also excited at the possibilities of theming/decorating my booth to attract like-minded collectors and those thoughts paired with the lack of time I have to dedicate to such grand ideas have left me hopeful that I will somehow pull it all together like a magical wedding planner.

So without further ado, I bid you adieu so I can officially begin my day with 3 hours of sleep, 2 itchy eyes, 1 runny nose and unlimited daydreams.

Happy Snaps – Bright Bath Vignettes

8 Mar

Our home is a collection of visual daydreams.

This is largely due to my preference for a mix of colors and textures in my decorating design and secondarily a product of vintage-hunting for {verdigreen}.

For every one item I list on Etsy there are two others I keep. It’s an addiction a hobby, of sorts.

I snapped some quick iPhone shots of our master bathroom today to document a few vignettes.

 I feel the need to constantly take pictures for fear I will lose memory of the way things were.

This appeals to the nostalgic in me who is coincidentally plagued by momnesia.
