Keep Calm and Carry On

The Brits made these posters during war time. I think we all need to read this sign often. Now say it with me with an English accent "Keep Calm and Carry On", and you know I'm feeling so much better. Spot of tea maybe! LOL Happy pink saturday.

Featured Shop ~The Little Pink Studio-Cerri~

Meet Cerri-

My name is Cerri Campbell and I am the owner of and I am also a wife and mother to two teenage daughters. I have a love of paper arts and mixed media artwork as well as a love of vintage ephemera. I wanted to be able to bring my designs, ideas, and love of collecting to other people so I created The Little Pink Studio. I am inspired by all things vintage, tattered and shabby bits of lace, old paper, beautiful handwriting, worn ruffles, soft faded colors. My favorite part of having the shop is searching for treasures to bring to the shop. I love finding new (or old) things that I think will inspire people to create something! I also love connecting with other creative people that I may not have ever “met” in any other way. I am always most inspired by vintage materials. I love items that have a past, a history. Faded millinery flowers, vintage wallpaper, the beautiful handwriting of days gone by, papers worn and yellowed with age, old book pages, vintage fabric, tattered and shabby lace, the soft muted colors that only come from age. I am a collector of many, many things! I love to collect dolls. I have a pretty large collection of vintage dolls, my favorites being the Nancy Ann dolls. I also collect vintage ephemera, and millinery flowers, old books, pretty containers, vintage fabric and lace, vintage cake decorations for my daughter and so many other things. Collecting, for me is a way of life!

Featured Shop ~Garden Antiqs Theresa~

I like the star she made out of an old ruler.
Meet-- Theresa
I started blogging 2 years ago this month, actually I think next week is my anniversary. I wanted to do something special to celebrate this so I guess I better hurry. I live between Dallas and Houston and travel all around Texas to find the cool things I sell at shows. Right now I do have a regular full time job and I antique full time so I guess I have two jobs. I try and do at least 4 shows a year and smaller ones in between. I sell at Zapp Hall twice a year, April and October, Austin Tx City Wide Sale about 2 times a year, the Red Barn Antique Show twice a year January and June and next week I'm doing a one day show in Waco Tx at Bloom and Bee Swanky shop. This is a first I've never done a one day show. Someday I hope to sell at Canton once I retire in 5 years. We have two boys, ages 26 and 21. Our oldest son lives in Austin and youngest still lives at home and goes to college. They are my life!! I live for my boys. She has a slide show Visit her blog She is so sweet and talented.

Vintage Scrappy Gal --Tiffany

Meet Tiffany---
I opened my shop in April of 2008, a couple of months after I started blogging. I wanted to share my love for vintage and hard to find treasures with others. My favorite part of my boutique is of course shopping for the items! It is most exciting unearthing a treasure at a flea market or yard sale and finding the perfect new home for it. I love to repurpose vintage items. I am especially fond of altering old jewelry into new jewelry pieces, photo frames, altered bottles and such. I also love to add vintage hardware like drawer pulls and knobs to my altered art projects.I have several favorite things I collect. Because of my love for repurposing vintage bling, I have to say my number one collection is of vintage jewelery pieces. I also collect vintage trophies and monogrammed silver.
Her art crown from vintage Items!

She added vintage rhinestone jewelery, an old clock face, and vintage wedding millinery.The base of the crown is a part of an old 70's style lamp she tore apart. She bought it at Goodwill for a couple of bucks. I just love this crown she is so talented!
