Let's Sail Away

I yearn for the warm sun on my face, gentle wind flowing in my hair, and the sound of waves lapping against the shore. For me, sparkling blue water is simply irresistible. Mark Shaw captured Jackie Kennedy's love of the water in 1961. The photograph of Jackie remains stunning, classic, and timeless.

Capture your love for all things nautical by adding a patriotic 1960's red, white, and blue dress to your wardrobe. Get this Jackie O style dress from Great Grandma Agnes' etsy shop for only $32. Set sail everyday by adding an adorable anchor by Stefeny Stanyer to your sassy summer accessories.

Say goodbye to the ordinary and cruise your way into noticeably stylish with this 80s nautical swimsuit. Complete with gold chains this swimsuit from Back Yard Bird Song is perfect for a day of sailing or a beach party with friends.

Set sail with stylish everyday!

XoXo,

Vicki

hi Vicki!
ok...when I re-upholstery chairs, I make sure that the chairs are like dining chairs - the seat can easily pop out to change the fabric. Here's a great video on how to do these:

For paint, I always use Rustoleum's Painter's Touch (Home Depot) or their American Accents line (Hobby Lobby). I do NOT like Krylon - I've had a lot of problems w/it. I never sand metals - I just spray away and it just happens to stick!
Hope this helps...sorry I took up half a page... -diane

by the way, I love your "polaroids". I use similar editing in my photos but yours look more vintage than mine. Yours are better. : )
