Pictures from the trip to the beach

When we got to the beach on Friday night, it was pouring down rain. It rained on-and-off all weekend, but there were spots of sunshine, so we took advantage of the opportunities by hanging out on the shore and walking down to the pier

The Blue-Brown Outfit: Details
It feels like I haven't blogged in forever, but it's only been 4 days. This week has been crazy- we went to the beach to watch my aunt's dpgs over the weekend, and that was fun, but it messed with my schedule. So I've been trying to get caught back up with school, shipping packages, blogging, and reading my e-mail. It's amazing how far back 2 days can set you.
I'll share pictures from the weekend at the beach soon, but for now I will leave you with a song that is stuck in my head:

My Typewriters

Today I am going to introduce you to... my vintage typewriters!

I found them all on the same weekend, in 3 different places. Crazy, right? And all for amazing prices- Between $10 and $8!

The typewriter above is the one in my header. :)

I'm still keeping my eye out for a pretty, pastel typewriter to add to my collection!
What about you? Do you have any vintage collections?

My finalized blog design

Sighhh... it's done. and I love it! (If you are reading in a reader, hop on over here!) I started working on my blog about a week and a half ago. Whenever I could sneak some time in, I would finish another little detail. 30 minutes here, 20 there.

Before I was done, I probably went through 3 different headers. I just couldn't decide which one I liked the best! I finally picked the one I have now, and I think it's pretty and simple, just the way I like it. I added some pages, a sidebar, and a navigation bar. I also made some blog buttons, and beautified my sidebars with links to follow me and find me on different sites.

I love designing blogs, so I also fixed up my other blog. Check it out here.

I'm kind of sad because I don't have any more blogs to work on! But then I thought... maybe one of my readers would like a new look! So, if you like the design of my blogs and are interested in having me work on your blog, please e-mail me at sunnie_fairy(at)yahoo(dot)com.
The first person who contacts me will get a blog makeover free of charge. :)

Alright, that's it for now folks. Stay tuned, tomorrow I will be blogging about my vintage typewriters.

Project Restyle: Keds

It's time for another Project Restyle! Click to see my previous projects.
I picked up these vintage white keds from the thrift store a while back for $2.
The only problem was they were yellowed. But then I found another pair of white keds that were in much better condition, so I snapped those up and threw this pair into the restyle pile.
Project Restyle: Keds
Then I was inspired by twig+bone, who was inspired by bleubirdvintage, to paint my shoes. So I got some pink paint, and ta-da! New shoes. Can't wait to wear them tomorrow!
ReStyled Keds (Back)
I was thinking that I'd really like to add some velvet laces... I just can't decide if should get pink or white. Or both.
ReStyled Keds
Over all, I love how they turned out, and I will be on the lookout for more shoes to paint. :)
I just wish there was some way to get rid of the remaining yellowness. Maybe I'll paint that area white...
