That Gypsy Soul… and the future of Howd.i.y.

hi friends! i know it’s been a bit quiet here on Howd.i.y. over the past few months (my apologies!). i’ve been working hard to launch a new blog + Etsy Shop specializing in vintage US souvenirs (+ some worldwide) and other rustic, kitschy items, as well as some handmade. i encourage you to check out That Gypsy Soul!

thanks so much for all your support over the past few years… i soooo appreciate it! because my readers are so awesome and you’ve helped make this blog something special. i’m happy to offer 10% off items in the Etsy shop – just use code HOWDIY10.

ps, I want to keep Howd.i.y. alive in some shape, just figuring out the best plan of attack for that! the new blog will also have a bit of DIY here and there.

That Gypsy Soul

wedding bells.

well well well… it might appear that i’ve been less than crafty the past few months – though actually it’s quite the opposite. while i admit i’ve been less than a stellar blogger, i’ve been keeping busy planning an array of projects. as of today, i’m just 3 weeks out from my biggest craft project of all…  my wedding!

in a few days i’ll head back to the US in preparation for the big day. my mother’s closets are overflowing with etsy, ebay and thrift store purchases. you see, our wedding is a handmade affair.

a sustainable engagement ring from utopian creations, wedding invitations made by shopbellsandwhistles, a custom dress designed by ktjean, decor from thelonelyheart and ElizabethSt (among many others), photobooth props from WhiskerWorks and the list goes on and on… these touches mixed with vintage mason jars, wooden fruit crates, farm fresh flowers, locally sourced eats by antique kitchen and a bar full of craft beer – all will help make this day something that truly represents who we are through a million personal little touches.

so00000 – though i’ve been quiet, please know that i’m keeping busy and in a few weeks i’ll have lots of crafty goodness to share!

thursday at 11:30pm (yes, a school night) i decided i was in the mood for some design… now since my next project is our bedroom and the man was already sound asleep, i decided to opt for some design on the more quiet side. so i bring to you my etsy curation (with a look that i think emulates my style & home decor – the title: she’s a little bit country…).  2 hours + 2 cups of tea later, here is my creation – I hope you enjoy! check it out here.
