Barbara Billingsley Passes Away - Bringing back an old Blog post

The following is a post I released May 2009.  I thought I would re-post it due to the passing of Barbara Billingsley (June Cleaver). 

The June Cleaver Story
A fashion icon in her own right. June is the perfect housewife. Always beautiful, proper, clean, happy, and best of all well dressed.

Today my mission is to get the June Cleaver look, style and feel shopping only on Etsy. No need to doubt me, it can be done. Not only can it be done but it can be done well and at a low cost. Don't believe me? Watch this.......

June wakes up and slips into her beautiful blue dress.

She clasps on the perfect pair of matching earrings.

Primping in the mirror June feels a little "saucy". She turns to her closet and pulls out her sexiest pair of heels.
But wait...let's not forget about the pearls. No self respecting woman ever leaves the house without her pearls.

Dressed to impress and looking good June ties on her apron

and whips up a batch of cookies for Wally and Beaver.

With the cookies in the oven June brews a batch of her best coffee and gets out her favorite coffee cups.

All in all it's just another perfect day in the perfect life of June Cleaver.

Eight items that encompass the personality that is June Cleaver.
Thank you for reading our June Cleaver story.
Have a Happy Day!

What to do with Vintage License Plates

I recently listed a couple vintage license plates on my HDV shop.  Granted, they are very cool but after I listed them I thought, "What the heck are people suppose to do with these?"  Well, here are a few cool ideas...

Appreciation Photo - Jewelry Box

One of my favorite things is to get an appreciation photo from one of the Happy Day Vintage customers. Every time I package up an item I wonder who it's going to and how it's going to be used?  Will it be loved?, Will it be cherished?, and will it be passed down through the years telling stories of those who came before?  Alright, I know I'm getting a little sappy so let's just get to the pictures...

Fashion Friday - Emily from The Bob Newhart Show

Last week my mom spent an entire week at our house.  It was heaven having her here.  I loved every minute of her stay. 
My mother is a huge "Mary Tyler Moore" and "The Bob Newhart Show" fan. In order to make her stay more comfortable I queued up both shows on Hulu for her to watch at her leisure.  
It's been a long long long time since I've watched those shows but OMG they are awesome!  I was transfixed on the clothes, accessories, decorating, etc... 
This weeks fashion Friday comes from The Bob Newhart Show. Emily, Bob's wife, was a fashionista of her time.
