How to Use Pinterest

My name is Annie Lema, and I am a Pinterest addict! :) This is a true story, as many of you have already discovered, if you are a Pinterest user. If not, here are some helpful hints that might get you on your way.

According to Pinterest "Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all of the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."
"A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from."

{diy project} book page jars

This is an adorable DIY project that I came across while doing research for my other blog, {quirks' kisses} inspired weddings, and decided that it was one I personally wanted to do so therefore wanted to share as well.

The original inspiration for this project came from the oh-so-talented couple, Joshua and Sarah Rhodes of Arrow & Apple. I have been planning on doing a DIY decoupage lampshade using either vintage book pages, vintage sheet music, or old newspaper clippings {so many choices}. So this project would be an excellent compliment to that one.

Vintage Window Custom Orders

I have started getting more and more custom orders as of late for my vintage windows | which I adore! As a favor to some of my customers and to simplify things for me I thought I would create this post to outline some of the many options available when placing a custom order. I really could go on and on with this one, so I will attempt to reel myself in if I find that I'm dragging it out. :)

Option One: Matted Photo Frame 
  1. What approximate size window frame?
  2. How many panes? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 6 | 8 | 9
  3. Color preference?
  4. Existing Paint or Repainted?
  5. If repainted, would you like it distressed or antiqued?
  6. What color matting?
  7. What size photos are you framing?
  8. Would you like the frame to hang vertically or horizontally?
  9. Would you like hanging hardware included?

New News = Finally

Hi all. It has been quite some time. For those of you that don't already know, we FINALLY MADE THE MOVE!!! We moved from North Carolina and are now living happily in Southern California {it is soooo good to be home}. With the move have come many new opportunities, which was part of the motivation to move in the first time. I now have several Antique Flea Market venues in my neck of the woods and couldn't be more excited.

Vintage Wedding ✿ Inspired DIY Ideas No. 1

So now that I have shared with you some of my favorite vintage inspired wedding ideas, I thought I could expand the idea and create some DIY posts. Of course, for the most part, I offer these services but I just figure that you are either going to hire someone to do it for you or you are the type of person to do it yourself and if I don't share then you can find the inspiration somewhere else. I rather be a one-stop-shop for your vintage wedding needs.
