It’s Retro, Baby

Last year I told you all about my excitement for an event planned at Orchard Art House.

The night ended up exceeding my expectations (and of course I did a little shopping – check out the belt I purchased from Circa Vintage!).

I had so much fun the last time around that I decided to join in, and at this year’s Retro Benefit I’ll be selling Wild Ruffle jewelry, with this girl hanging out at my table too. Also coming along for the ride are Ashley Barlow, Circa Vintage, Snowy Owl Baby, Marcia Siggelkow’s vintage-themed children’s items (see picture below), and more.

Wanna know the best part? Aside from the beautiful setting – the amazing lofted studio of ekate designs set against a lakeside backdrop – the best part is that the entire evening benefits Urban Homeworks, an organization dedicated to rebuilding neighborhoods in disadvantaged areas of the Twin Cities.

Wanna know where to buy a ticket? Simply head here – tickets are $10 in advance, and $12 at the door.

Wanna know when to be there? Head to the Orchard Art House (22490 Murray St. Excelsior, MN 55331) on Saturday, August 25th any time between 2-7 pm. Can’t wait to see you there!

  • Whenever there’s a holiday, you can be sure we’re incorporating food into it in a big way. One of our morning favorites is a baked French toast casserole. It’s perfect for Easter brunch, or Christmas morning (or pretty much any day that you’re craving a delicious breakfast). Over the years, we’ve adapted and tweaked an… [Continue Reading]

  • I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the… [Continue Reading]

    At Home Chemical Peel
  • It’s finally officially spring here in Minnesota, but we’ve all been  hanging out outside and celebrating as if it has been spring for weeks now. We go a little stir crazy in this chilly tundra of a state during the cold weather months, and we’re ready to embrace some warmth. My kids are even running around… [Continue Reading]
