{Last Post until Monday, August 22nd}

Hi darlings!  I am OVER THE MOON to be able to say that today is my last day posting here on Blogger, and at http://www.overthemoonvintagerentals.blogspot.com/ ~ because come Monday, my new website and blog are launching!!!  YIPPEE ;-)

But don't worry, all the content that I have posted to date is getting added to my new blog!  Please make sure to bookmark http://overthemoonvintagerentals.com/blog/ so you know where to find me.  I look forward to seeing you there on Monday!

Until then, I will leave you with this AMAZING tent made out of vintage linens and sewn by the uber talented Jeni of Found Vintage Rentals...

{Handcrafted: Fabric Covered Letters}

Hi loves!  Sorry I am running a bit behind this morning ;-)  I am working like crazy around here trying to get all of my Handcrafted items photographed, measured and ready to add to the new website once it is done.  In addition to vintage rentals, and because I love to craft so much, I figured I would add my handcrafted items to the new website in a Handcrafted section. 

I just opened an Etsy store this morning, why I am running behind, called OTM Handcrafted ~ it is a spot where you can place a custom order for any of my handcrafted items.  I am in the process of getting things together, and should have everything uploaded by Monday, August 22nd.  But here's a sneak peek at my fabric covered letters...
Cute, no? 

I can do ANY letters in ANY fabric ~ either that you choose, or I choose for you.  I am selling these by letter ~ so you can spell out anything you'd like.  The letters are covered with fabric pieces, it is NOT decoupaged on...you can actually feel the fabric.  All orders are custom and made once the order is placed.  But all the details will be on Etsy.  Eeks, can't wait to get everything up for you to see ;-)

{Disappearing Act}

Just a quick note to apologize for my disappearing act this past week and a half.  I am so sorry loves! 

However, I have LOTS of goodness that is happening around here and I cannot wait to share it all with you.   I am so OVER THE MOON about it all.  Soon it will be...
in celebration!  Who's with me?

I hope to be back on track starting tomorrow with daily vintage inspired posts!  Until then ~ cheers ;-)))

{Sneak Peek: Website}

Happy Monday and the first day of August my dears!  So sorry for missing a couple posts last week...with my family here, I thought I would find some time to post everyday, but it's been insanely busy around here.  And add to that the Fizz & Frills event that I am getting ready for this coming weekend in San Francisco ~ and I can honestly say that I am not sure that I will be getting a post up everyday this week!  I will try my hardest though ;-)

However, I do have some FABULOUS news ~ my website is at the programmers!!!  I can't wait for you to see the new website and blog, that I just have to give you a small sneak peek...
I did say small ;-)  But the stars are cute, no?

I will be back tomorrow with the 'Star of the Week' post, so be sure to check back and see what's tickling my fancy this week ~ hehe.

{Repurposed: Window}

It's Wednesday my dears.  And I couldn't be more tickled about it...as my family arrives from Florida today ~ YIPPEE!!!!!! I haven't seen them in over 7 months, which is way too long for me ;-)  So if you are looking for me...I'm the one playing lots of hooky the next two weeks!  Oh, I will still be posting daily here...but I will be spending every second that I can squeeze in hugging and kissing and sniffing on my niece and nephew.  Hehe.

Okay, enough about me and on with this post.  Today's repurposed post is something I am sure lots (if not all) of you have seen before, however there is something a bit different about it.  Have a look~see at this window with guests seating assignment (escort area)...
Did you notice it?  Okay, take another look if you didn't, I'll wait ;-)
 .........................hint ~ look at where the lock latch is.................................... 

Yes, it's on it's side! If it wasn't on it's side it would be much shorter...so I do like how it's turned on it's side

I adore this window, as I have two just like it...yep with the little feet as I call them and all.  However, I think mine has bit more chippy paint, but still the same.  I also LOVE the fact that they didn't write names in all of the panes!  And I adore the simple wood piece holding it up.

All in all ~ a fabulous window display, no?

{Make Over: Camping Stool}

Hi lovelies!  I have a cute little post for you today ;-)  I am LOVING the 'Make Over' of this camping stool...
New Look
Seriously, how cute is this?  A super duper quick way to give a camping stool a 'Make Over' ~ just add some fabric or a crocheted piece and viola!

{Inventory Inspiration: Doilies}

Hi loves!  So sorry I am running behind today.  However, I have a lovely 'Inventory Inspiration' post for you to try and make up for it ;-)

I LOVE doilies.  I have a huge collection of them in my inventory.  Have a look~see at just a teeny tiny sampling of what I have...
I love the different textures, materials, and shades of white, cream and beige.  Each and every one of them is fabulous in their own way!

Now let's have a look at our inspiration, shall we?  Here are the doilies that were used...
Inventory Inspiration
And here is how they were inspired to use them...
Inventory Inspiration
To adorn a cake table!  I'm over the moon about this darling and simple idea.  The doilies add just the perfect amount of softness to the wood table without being too much.  And I love how the detail on the cake looks like a doily.  All so fabulous, no?

{Inventory Inspiration: Three Tiered Metal Shelf}

Thank Goodness It's Friday ;-)  And to wrap up this week, I thought I would post this sweet 'Inventory Inspiration.'  Have a look~see at the inventory...
A darling three tiered cream metal shelf that I snatched up the second I saw it.  I knew there would lots of ways to use this piece...the first one coming to mind when I first saw it was to use it to hold cupcakes.  However, I am loving this sweet inspiration...
Inventory Inspiration

To hold toppings for an ice cream bar - yes, please!  Such a fabulous idea, don't you think?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.  While I know I will be crafting away and getting things organized this weekend - I am hoping that you lovelies are out having some fun, enjoying the sunshine and having some ice cream ;-)  Maybe I'll just take my projects outside and work on them...that's sounds like a lovely plan, and a frozen yogurt sounds quite good too.  Oh with chocolate sprinkles of course!

{Fizz & Frills}

Hi loves!  Do you remember me hinting at something yesterday?  Well this is it...
Fizz & Frills
Over The Moon Vintage Rentals (aka me...hehe) is going to be a vendor at Fizz & Frills for both days, and I couldn't be more elated about it!  I kept debating about applying to be a vendor for my homemade items...but finally I took the leap and applied.  And now I am so glad I did as this will be my first event ;-)

I will be selling and taking orders for my homemade custom designs.  I have been a busy little bee trying to get ready for this event, and have created some new homemade items that I can't wait to share with you once the event is over.  I will make sure to get pictures of all items and upload them into the 'Homemade' section.

There will be lots of Fizz & Frills, and other vendors as well so you DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!  Make sure to get your tickets HERE!!!  And I will see you there...can't wait to say 'hi' ;-)

{Purchase Peek: Aqua Kettle}

I am sorry my dears for getting this post up soooo late!  Eeks.  I'm also sorry for the bad picture that I took on my iphone to send to my mom so she could see what I was talking about when I was on the phone with her...and never had any intention of sharing this picture with all you.  I will take another later this afternoon when I get back home, and replace the bad one...but I did want to share with you this darling little kettle that I picked up yesterday, and get this post up before nightfall!  So here she is...
Kettle VR
See told you - bad picture.  Ugh, sorry.  And I didn't even show you the handle - which is sooo dang cute too.  Double ugh!

I picked up this kettle not only for the color (matches OTM's color perfectly) but a little something I have up my sleeve!  I just found out about it yesterday, and I will be able to share more with you very soon.  Until then just picture all the lovely things that you could do with this kettle ;-)

Ooh did I tell you that I have seen all the pages of OTM's new website site and blog?  You bet your buttons I did and I have to say I am OVER THE MOON about them all!  They are heading to coding soon, and am looking forward to the day I can finally share with all of you ;-)

{Star of the Week: Star Quilt}

Hi loves!  Happy Tuesday to you.  I have been quite starry-eyed the last couple of days, so I thought the 'Star of the Week' should actually include stars!  Which made my 'Star of the Week' pick super easy (just like my 'Styling Tip' below...hehe).  Have a look-see at my star quilt...
I love all the colors and pattern of this quilt.  And I know most people would rent a quilt(s) for an engagement shoot, a picnic inspiration shoot, for additional seating on the grass, to cover hay bails or to cover a table...and while I love them used in all of these ways, I also love them used in another way!

Styling Tip:  Use a vintage quilt for a photo booth backdrop!  It's super duper easy and quick ;-)

And fabulous idea, no?

{Styled: Wood Crate}

Happy Monday my dears!  Did everyone have a fabulous weekend?  Me - well my birthday was yesterday, so my weekend was just lovely ;-)  And my sister's birthday is today so....HAPPY BIRTHDAY sissy!!!

I just had to post this picture today for you, as it really shows that wood crates can be used in a variety of ways...
As a welcome area, cake table, escort area, favor holder, or just as decoration...lots of ways!  And they are all fabulous, no?

{Star of the Week: Step Stool}

Don't let this little guy fool you...
There are lots of darling ways in which to use this step stool!  So here are some styling tips for you ;-)

Styling Tips:  This step stool is perfect atop a table to use in a variety of ways.  First, with escort cards hanging from the steps.  Just use a push pin and some ribbon or twine so they hand down and voila ~ the perfect escort holder.  Second, to hold cupcakes or sweet treats on the dessert table looks cute.  Third, use on the welcome table to hold some fabulous details and flowers.  And fourth, use on the bar to hold the drink signs, or even glasses on the steps!

So many ways in which to use.  However, there are lots of other ways to use as well...not atop a table ;-)

{Styled: Mismatched China}

Happy Wednesday darlings!  We are halfway through the week already, can you believe it?  Eeks ~ in two weeks from today my family arrives from Florida...WOOHOO!!!  There is NOTHING like having your family around ;-)  Okay, enough chatter out of me!

I am loving the use of mismatched china here...
What I love about this table decor is that while the china is mismatched and vintage, the silverware and glasses are not...yet it works beautifully, wouldn't you agree?  A perfect example on how to mix old and new ;-)

xoxo to the moon and back

Business Cards
I know ~ not the best picture, but I was just so thrilled to get them that I snapped a quick picture with my iPhone and wanted to share.  (I am loving the Instagram app!)  Also, I couldn't decide which back to go with...so I went 50/50!  I am just that option kinda girl ;-)

Happy Monday my dears.  Goodness, I really am running so far behind today...please forgive me ;-)  However, I do have a lovely 'Inventory Inspiration' post for your today.  Have a look~see at my food mill...
Such a simple piece.  However don't let that fool you, because now have a look~see at this inspiration...

{Styled: Oil Lamps}

Ahhhh Friday at last!  Yowza, what a week this has been.  Oh that's a good yowza by the way ;-)  Just busy, busy, busy.  However, I did get some great news today - my business cards for Over The Moon were mailed on Wednesday (so they should be arriving very soon), and OTM's website is going to coding in two weeks ~ WEEEEEE!  I am squealing with delight...kind of like the pig in the Geico commercial going weeeeeeee all the way home!  OMGoodness, if you haven't seen it click here...weeeeee.

Okay, now that I got that outta my system I can get to this post.  Earlier in the week I posted the 'Star of the Week' which were oil lamps.  And I also told you I would be using them in a little photo shoot of a table design that I was putting together ~ well here they are...
Not the best picture of the oil lamps ~ I know!  To see more of pictures head on over to my wedding blog, Luna and Chloe Weddings, at noon today when I will be posting a couple more pictures.

Wishing you my dears the most wonderful weekend ;-))  Hopefully you will squeal in delight yourselves this weekend!

{Styled: Wooden Crates}

One of my fave ways to use wooden crates...
As a cake stand, of course ;-)  Eeks ~ and do you see the custom labels?  Interwined...are you serious?  LOVE it!

Styling Tip:  You can always use one of the crates on a table for the cake too, and it would look just as fabulous.

{Star of the Week: Oil Lamps}

Well my 'Star of the Week' choice was a no brainer for me this week!  Why, you ask?  Well, all week long on my wedding blog, Luna and Chloe Weddings, I am recreating a table design using these lovelies...
Star of the Week
So please pop on over to Luna and Chloe Weddings everyday this week to see the recreation process and just how lovely these look on a table!  The finished table will be posted on Friday...so at the very least check back then to see them in action ;-)

Well welcome back my dears!  Tell me - was your long holiday weekend spectacular?  Mine was quite lovely as I worked, played and got back into creative mode...which is always a good thing for me...and I guess you too ;-)

Alrighty, let's get on with this post shall we?  This week's inventory item is a vintage globe. I love the aqua, green and pink colors on this globe.  Here have a look~see for yourselves...
Oh so pretty colors, no?  And how about this for your inspiration...

A fabulous line up of different size globes used as an escort area!  Hmm, I wonder where in the world Ella is sitting...

{Purchase Peek: Beige Bed}

Good morning loves!  So tell me ~ how was your weekend?  Mine was lovely ~ productive and fun.  And I told you on Friday that I would be attempting to uncover some fabulous finds ~ well I certainly WASN'T looking for this...
Purchase Peek
...but it was so fabulous I just HAD to get it ;-).  Plus, it was the best bargain EVER!  I mean how fabulous is that curved foot board?  Eeks ~ I love it!  And while you can see some of it's detail pieces are broken or missing in the pictures (on each panel of the headboard in the center....noticeable in the 1st and 3rd picture a bit), I was lucky enough to get all of the broken and missing pieces.  Really, I can't believe that the lady took the time to keep them, put them in an envelope and give them to me when I purchased the bed.

The only other things wrong with the bed is it is missing a wheel on the foot board, and it has a bit of a crack on one leg on the headboard ~ but these things are easily fixed.  I can't wait to give it some TLC...which is all it really needs.  And let me to you my dears ~ I have bunches of TLC to give ;-)

Also on Friday I told you I dream of white linens ~ can you imagine this bed with white linens and lots of pillows...perfectly dreamy, no?  And perfect for a boudoir session!

{Inventory Inspiration: Red Bistro Table and Chairs}

Yippee it's Friday!  Oh how I heart Fridays ;-)  And speaking of hearts, which are almost always colored red, it reminded me of the lovely red bistro table and chair set that I have.  Here, have a look-see...
Red Bistro Table and Chairs
Fabulous, no?  However, I must admit that red is not my favorite color.  So when I was thinking of how I would style this to soften the red, I was dreaming of white linens.  Let you in on a little secret ~ I dream of white linens a lot ;-)

Anyhoo...in looking for an inspiration picture I was keeping white linens or something similar in mind.  So you could image how elated I was to run across this picture...
Inventory Inspiration
The perfect inspiration, don't you think?  Exactly what I had in mind.  See how the white linens soften the brightness of the red, and the addition of chair cushions make it really inviting.  Hmm, just might have to pick two of those up!

Now I can say I L-O-V-E my set ~ in all it's red glory!  Hope you have a lovely weekend my dears.  I am hoping to uncover some fabulous finds this weekend!  I will make sure to share if I do ;-)

{Homemade: Framed Button Heart}

Happy Homemade Thursday my dears!  I wanted to share a quick homemade project that I thought is cute and simple to do.  Also, it gives you a reason to pick up some smaller picture frames too ;-)

Anyhoo, have a look-see at this darling little detail ~ a button framed heart...
A cute decor idea, no?  And don't you just love that it's hanging from ribbon?  Such a fab idea as well.

To make these all you would need is a frame, burlap, buttons and a glue gun!  I would get the burlap in place in the frame first (you could always use some spray adhesive to make sure it lays flat and stays in place).  Then I would lay out the buttons to form the heart to make sure size and spacing are right, and then I would just glue them in place.   Easy peasy ;-)

Styling Tip:  I think using your last name initial would be cute too.  However, you could also use these small frames on the tables.  Instead of making a heart, write out the table number using buttons.  And if your frame is slightly larger I would use them as chairback decor and spell out bride and groom with the buttons!  Ahhh so many ways to use...

{Over The Moon}

...about vintage clocks!
I am loving this collection of vintage clocks, aren't you?  Especially the ones with the bells on top!  I adore when they are used as decor at events or photo shoots.  And you can always make an impact, like above, by grouping them all together.

Styling Tip:  I would use these as table numbers for each table ~ just set the time to the number the table is and viola!

{Styled: Chippy Paint Stool}

So yesterday, I posted the 'Star of the Week', which just so happened to be my chippy paint yellow stool.  I also told you a couple of ways in which you can use, one being for flowers and details.  Then low and behold I run across this picture last night, and knew I just had to post it today!  Have a look-see at this fabulousness...

{Star of the Week: Yellow Stool}

Happy Monday loves!  I am starting off this week on a bright and sunny note ~ great way to start the week, no?  And I thought the perfect piece in my inventory to do just this would be my oh so fabulous yellow stool!  Here, have a look-see...
Not sure my pictures do it justice!  However, it is a fabulous accent piece ~ either next to another table with some flowers and details on top, in a seating arrangement, or even a place for people to sit while in a photo booth area...with a vintage quilt as a backdrop would be darling. 

Styling Tip:  This stool would also be the perfect place for the cake!

Definitely a piece that adds a little sunshine to my day ;-)  Here's to a fabulous week my dears!

{Star of the Week: White Soda Crate}

Happy Friday loves!  I am tickled that it is finally Friday, as my Great Aunt Millie (who is 86) and I plan to go see a matinee today ~ Midnight in Paris ;-)  It's been quite a while since the last time we went to the movies...granted every Wednesday night is still girls night, but we haven't gone to the movies in too long!

Believe it or not I have a point here with all this movie talk ~  a couple of weeks ago I did a post about using a soda crate as a popcorn holder...see where I am going with this?  Yes, I plan on getting popcorn at the movies, which of course made me think of this crate...which in turn is why it's my 'Star of the Week'.  Whew, you still following me?  Eeks, I hope so ;-)  Anyway, have a look-see at my lovely white soda crate...
There are SO many ways, beyond a popcorn holder, in which you can use this crate.  I adore it standing up and used as a cubby, and even flipped with its bottom up (hehe) and used as a cake stand!  And I just have to tell you that the crate is perfect...not slanted like it looks in the picture ~ it's the ground that has a slight slope here ;-)

Styling Tip:  You could also use this crate to hold cocktails!  Just fit your glass in a square and have your servers serve them up! 

Cheers to a fabulous weekend!  See you back here on Monday...hopefully with some new finds that I can share with you.

xoxo to the moon and back,

{Homemade: Bunting}

Last Thursday, I showed you how to make a homemade handkerchief table runner...well this week I have a 'Homemade' project for you that is just as easy ~ handkerchief bunting!  Have a look~see my dears...
It's as easy as stringing some twine, and pinning on handkerchiefs with clothespins.  Told you, easy!  And look how fabulous it is...
Oh yes, I most definitely am in L-0-V-E with this homemade project!  Aren't you?  And I must say ~ love the table and details too.

{Inventory Inspiration: Flower Garden}

Hello loves, happy Wednesday!  I thought I would start a new series where I would take an item or items from Over The Moon's inventory and show you an inspiring way to use it ~ sounds like fun, no?

So for this first post of 'Inventory Inspiration' (what do you think of the title?)  I wanted to use some of the tin/metal items that I have.  Have a look-see at the inventory for today...
And here is the inspiration...
It makes it so much easier to see some inspiring ways in which to use inventory items doesn't it?  And I am loving this inspiration ;-)
