Shabby Chic Wrapped Doilie Vase and the great things you find under the sink!

While I was hunting for a vase to go under the doilie I decided to hunt under our kitchen sink where I found these two treasures! 

Available at Appleschloss

This is an amazingly unique vintage Apothecary container... I can just picture it with vintage buttons for a cool decoration or cotton balls in it to add some vintage style to your bathroom. Makes a great gift or gift for yourself!

This little beauty queen planter isn't for sale! I love her far too much! She belonged to my great great grandma and I'm not sure how old she is, but I do know my great great grandma died in the 50's so she has to be from sometime before then. I can't believe she was hiding under the sink... she's too much of a star not to be on display!

First Post!

So I'm excited, Appleschloss now has it's very own blog! A blog which will probably be interspersed with all my cooking photos, room redecorating, and fabulous finds!

Above is our sweet Petite Ribbon Candy Necklace... I made it last night during my veronica mars marathon (such an addicting show by the way... so sad it's canceled!) and I'm so in love with it now! It really goes with everything, wear it to class or out on the town... it's very versatile! I made a few larger pleated ribbon necklaces too out of this beautiful sage and cream ribbon! It's so nice to have my assistant Margaret (my calico kitty, also my 
little sister) to supervise the ribbon folding and investigation of vintage items waiting to be listed! She's a good helper for Appleschloss! Speaking of vintage items...we were featured in Vintage Indie over the weekend in their Vintage + Modern Mingle article! Our fabulously retro coffee and tea mug was the item of choice for the feature and it sold a few hours after it was in Vintage Indie! Be sure to check out the article!
