They have offered to carry my Gypsy Pouches in their beautiful luxury vintage and American crafted new goods boutique.

Exile boutique is new to the Vegas downtown arts district and it is a must see for anyone, boy or girl who loves fashion.
It screams Americana Motorcycle club with Rock n Roll edge.
Just plain cool.  Main St Downtown Arts District Las Vegas

20% off Etsy



We had a glorious and happy 4th!
It rained and the day ended with a big thunderstorm.  It was amazing! Talk about fireworks.
We did pop its and saw the storm roll in as night fell.


We shopped, we made delicious food and put together firefighter legos.

It was a day full of fun and new things.

Isn't it funny, Summer just officially started but I always think of the 4th as the hump and School is just around the corner...
These next few weeks will go fast, as I have my niece coming for a visit and the boy booked in classes and courses of swimming and learning.  Then boom shopping for school supplies will start :))))

Hope all of you had a great 4th as well.

Shop Update


New in the SHOP tonight

I have been working on new bags and loving my new fabric designed by my hubby.
These bags and coin purses will be hitting the shop soon.


But for now I am filling the shop with vintage items
Its been awhile



First up this darling vintage half apron.
It has a unique vibrant needlepoint print  all cotton in roses galore.

I just think it needs to be on a gypsy rose cowgirl out there somewhere


Then the cutest little kids belt ever, they don't make them like this anymore.
Hand crafted native american beaded leather belt  A souvenir from Wyoming.

So full of color, texture and design.

Then,  I have carried this shirt around with me for ages since pulling it from a bale back in my vintage sorting days at Value Village.
Vintage Motley Crue Tshirt

Amazing vintage find and good vintage condition given the style and band.

All of these items are now listed in my ETSY shop.
Vintagemarketplace.etsy.com
I hope they find good homes.

Giving Back





Have you heard of Sevenly??
Well it is a wonderful organization that produces cool goods to sell to raise awareness and money for great causes.
This weeks cause is bringing awareness to Autism.  Something near and dear to my heart.
Water soothes and changes a child.  Thanks to Izzy Paskowitz and his vision for getting kids out into the water he started Surfers Healing.  So when you buy from Sevenly this week the money help goes to send a child with Autism to Surf Camp.
These are two amazing organizations that are coming together to spread the word and change a lives for families affected by Autism.

Please take a moment and go to Sevenly and help change the way the world sees Austism and give back just a little.

I highly recommend you visit Vimeo and watch the Izzy Paskowitz story.   I found this story just as our child was being labeled and I cried all day.  I knew then I had to fight for my child.  Today my child is now label free.  Be the change a child needs. Spread the word.  Do something.

Summer


Usually I am not one for Summer.  Never have been.
Even as a kid it wasn't my favorite.
But this year it has all changed.
I am loving Summer this year.  I know, I know, you are saying...But Amy Summer just started today.  Well, our Summers start much earlier here in the desert and we have all ready been on 3 Summer vacations.

Maybe it is because I am finally feeling good and healthy to enjoy the workouts that Summer brings.
Swimming, walking, biking and just good ol fashion playing.

We have been doing a lot of all of the things listed above and it feels great.

Now that the heat is really hitting us here in the desert, we get in the pool early and then we stay put at home the rest of the day.
Creating, exploring, movie watching, and playing.

Yesterday the boy made his first tent/fort of the season.  Using the dining table and all the blankets in the storage closet he could find.  He didn't come out for hours.  Today he is right back in there after lunch.  His little hideaway from the world.  Discovering, playing and talking to his little stuffed toys and legos.

Me,  I am busy creating away.  I have 100's of ideas for my gypsy pouches and I just need to find the time to sit and make them.  They really are like holding security blanket in your hand.  Softest vintage cottons and hand stitched embroidery and doilies make up all of them.  Each one is a one of a kind creation full of history and vintage goodness.
Stop in my ETSY shop to see more

Happy Summer to you all, how are you spending your lazy summer days?
