One year old...


It has been one year this month since I started the chronicles of my mending.  My daily notes of vintage treasures and the pictures of my hand picked finds.  To thank you all for joining me and leaving such sweet comments I will be giving away some of my favorite things once a week for the month of November.


My favorite thing this week is just a sweet reminder of each day...my favorite paper company!


This darling little company makes the cutest vintage style papers and such.  I am such a fan.  My little desk calendar is always a yearly order.  Their blog is on my daily roll.  You will find so many great ideas from gift wrapping, note cards, scrap booking even digital papers.


I have compiled a set of some favorite papers and packs for you to enjoy.


I have spent hours covering boxes with these papers and making tags with even more.


Thank you all again for joining me each post.  I cannot tell you how much your kind words and support have helped make this such a wonderful year. 
Simply leave a quick comment and I will have my Miss Claire draw a name for this Friday's post. 
You have until Friday November 4th at noon to enter.

Congratulations on your blog's one year anniversary! I wouldn't have guessed you were new at it, with such a lovely blog!
Of course, I'd love to win this week's prize - have never heard of that company before, but it all looks good. Going to check out their site now!

I can't believe it's only been a year. It feels so much longer. Please don't include this comment in the drawing. I've already been so blessed with all your special treasures, I just wanted to wish you a happy anniversary!

Jane said...

Not trying to get "extra credit" - just wanted to say that I went to look at the Pretty Little Studio blog & shop - what a special treat! Everything's so cute! Thanks for pointing us to it!

I can't believe it's only been a year since you've been blogging! I can't imagine my day without a visit to your wonderful site. I always come away feeling inspired to create something or to go treasure hunting. You keep me laughing and I'm always encouraged by your kind words. You are a blessing to me!

Jess said...

Reading your blog is one of the highlights of my day at work. I take a break from law and enter your world. I love seeing what you find at sales and many times am a little green with envy! And have been digging out all the aprons, material and needlework that I have accumulated the past 20 years so that I can possibly recreate some of your apron creations.

Thanks for taking the time to take pics and write your blog. I so appreciate it!

Happy anni to My Vintage Mending! I love to visit your blog and I would LOVE to win this give away! Thanks for the chance to win! I'll check out the link you gave us, too. ♥

Lynn said...

Good Morning Miss Renee,
Congratulations on one year of blogging!! I so love my visits here each day! wow, such a sweet give away!! I can't wait to see the aprons when you make them. I am looking forward to the sewing machine for Christmas. My hubby looked at me funny when I told him that was on my wishlist this year!! He said are you sure you won't get mad when you open it?? He learned early that appliances are not appreciated as Christmas presents!!
Hugs,
Lynn

Eileen said...

Hi there! I'm a relatively new fan of yours. I followed the link from Elizabeth's Creative Breathing blog, and I check in every day to see what you're up to. My girls (I have 4 daughters) and I love your vintage aprons. They're gorgeous.
If it weren't for the internet I'd be very lonely with my vintage mania; there is such a rich society of talented, lovely and warm like-minded women out there (maybe a few guys, too, but I haven't come across any yet).
Thank you for your posts. They're witty and intelligent, and I love them.

The Star Gal said...

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!! Count me in. I LOVE your blog.

Mecky said...

Happy Anniversary!! I am so glad that you decided to start your blog. I have enjoyed seeing your find and projects!

The papers look like fun!

Stay warm this next couple of days. The cold front is hitting me now but I am not freezing yet. They say we may see a few flurries. Wasn't it just yesterday that we were all melting? Actually I was yesterday. It was so warm in the house yesterday that I was tempted to kick the air on but didn't.

A year already and we all love you blog so you have a talent for this that's for darn sure.
Well I adore all those items as I have used many times those sweet little circles with the cute kids on them. In fact I think I found out about them from you and bought from them a couple times. These are going to be great give away items. Nan

Mary said...

Happy Blog-iversary! I enjoy your blog so much. We both like a lot of the same things which always brings me such excitement when seeing what you've brought home from your trips to estate sales and thrift stores.

I look forward to many more blog posts in the years to come!

birdie blue said...

happiest of blog-iversaries to you, my friend. i'm always pleased to see one of your darling, 'day-brightening' posts. always happy and bright, even when i'm sure your day has had its share of 'moments'...

i haven't ordered from 'pretty little studio' before, and i can see that i've been missing out... must put that on the 'to-do' list.

I only found your blog not too long ago & I can't remember how. But I love all the wonderful finds and sewing projects that you post. So many things that you find remind me of growing up in the 50's & 60's. Such a happy time that was! Congratulations on your 1st blogging anniversary!

Love all of your cuteness. Sorry you are having to deal with contractors in your life. We like to hire out for such jobs too. Leaves more time for doing the things we LOVE to do! Hang in there & keep posting wonderful things.

I'm catching up on a week's worth of blog reading - STUNNED to learn you have been blogging only a year! I must have thought you had been doing this much longer because your blog is so lovely. Other observations: your Christmas tags and crafts are wonderful, and have you ever had a contractor that didn't smoke? Because I haven't. I don't think any profession has as many horror stories, and I'm including IRS agents and used car dealers in that group.
