Heart Rock on the Beach

Over the years we have always walked beaches looking for interesting shells, sea glass and rocks. Shells are very location dependent ... need to have the right sea bottom to get these treasures washed up on the beach. Sea glass has almost disappeared from most beaches ... except for a few protected places. But interesting rocks are always cast about. Love to find them in varied colors or textures or shapes. Our personal favorite are heart-shaped rocks. Here's one we found out on Moonstone Beach in Cambria.

Last Valentine's Day I created this little Coral Heart Sculpture for Susan. Just one of many ideas for using these precious stones creatively ... or just place them in a rock garden. Enjoy.

Handmade Doll with Vintage Lace

This cute little doll was hand made by Angela Steen, a Vintages' customer. The doll's dress is made from a piece of vintage lace that Angela picked up here at Vintages. Angela wrote: "Here's the doll that I made. You'll see the lace at the bottom of her dress was from your store!" Thank you Angela for sharing this with our followers. Another creative talent who shops at Vintages and repurposes vintage pieces into wonderful, imaginative hand made treasures.

Emporium Christmas Ad 1901

Love this ad for the now gone San Francisco Emporium Department Store (aka Emporium-Capwell's) from Nov 28th 1901. More amazing is that this ad is from the Honolulu, Hawaii, newspaper The Daily Pacific Commercial Advertiser (later to be the Honolulu Advertiser)
