I wanted to do something colorful for my spring porch this year.  I certainly deserve a little color after putting up with all the stupid polar vortex stuff this winter.

"Who you looking at?"

This is my favorite photo from my Vintage Seed Box Tutorial.  He's a fuzzy vintage bank I found at a local store.   No money inside though :)

I've always wanted a 'cool' bedtray for my laptop. With just some reclaimed wood and pipe fittings, it's finally here! So soooo easy to make and pretty funky too.

World's Worst Easter Postcard

The card is postmarked March 20, 1910 (Easter was March 27th that year) and it says "Hope the bunny is good to you" on the back, so I'm pretty darn sure it's an Easter card.  

Why all the blood and guts?  Got me, but it's one of my favorite Easter postcards in my collection.

A little Easter inspiration for you on this chilly spring day.  Does it seem like Mr. Bunny is interested in a little cross species romance?  

More vintage Easter postcards for your craft projects or just downloading can be found on this post: http://www.houseofhawthornes.com/2012/03/little-palate-cleanser.html

I attended a church rummage sale this morning.  Yard sale season is definitely starting to pick up around here.   Love this time of year!

I have the uncanny ability to find cool vintage pieces for great prices and then weave them into my home decor without looking like I'm 90 years old and stuck in the 1950's. That's a useful skill, right?

Introduction
I write a blog called House of Hawthornes where I talk about thrift store shopping, gardening and a whole lot of vintage stuff. Blogging has rekindled a love of photography in me, although I rarely take photos of people and often take photos of my vintage finds (they tend to sit still and smile when I want them to).  

If you want to find out more about my blog, come on over for a visit and check it out.  Here are some great places to start:
