Good Morning Girls (and Boys)
The models and I had a very fun weekend shooting more Rag Trade Vintage with bubbles and delicious cupcakes for props that we devoured afterwards. (look for plenty more Ebay listings posted later today in the shop)
Here’s one of my favorite pictures from the shoot:
I have decided that Rag Trade Vintage will now carry a line of vintage aprons (available next week in the shop)

This morning when I woke up I decided I needed to do a little baking or cooking. So first, I found a really easy recipe for home made pop-tarts, mmmmmmmm! I had an irresistible craving for them.
DRESS THE PART
Although, I didn’t just get straight to the kitchen. First, I went to a lovely place called Antique Alley where I nearly got lost in the maze of antique stores and rooms. It was amazing how much stuff was in there! I found some really cute vintage aprons. They had red and white stripes or heart-shaped pockets on the hips or were bright colors with flowers and lace all over, so, I got those. Then, I found a wall of old cook books and bake books. They were more like pamphlets and were in zip lock bags probably to prevent them from aging any more, but it looked to me like they were already falling apart. I bought three of them anyways, and discovered they were all from around 1973. I think ill test out of recipes from them another day.
GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS
What girl doesn’t love baking? So here we go with one of the simplest recipes ever, and no-offense to Kellogg, but these are way better tasting than the boxed-up store bought tarts.
…and they were sooooo good! I love this! What should I make next?
I’m thinking that Rag Trade Vintage will now carry vintage aprons as well. Keep checking back for updates on when the line will be launched, and the clothes up for grabs.
I can’t seem to sleep in very long no matter how late I stay up. Last night I spent most of my time watching LOST episodes, eating popcorn, spending time with my rock star room mate, looking at the new IKEA magazine that found its way to my door, and sifting through old photos. This morning I woke at about 8:43, and I was wide-awake! Why fight it? Now Ill just have more time today.
I have yet to find a cute vintage apron with flower appliques that I can make these in:
So, if anyone knows where I can get one, let me know!
