This coaster is handmade by April herself and by hired local crafters in her neighborhood.
Each coaster is carefully put together with love and care! And each coaster purchased helps an independent artist be employed for the season.

These ceramic coasters are 4.5 X 4.5 inches and sealed with a protective coating. The backs are hand cut soft 100% black polyester felt and provide a cushion and non scratch backing to protect your table tops.

These coasters make a wonderful gift and recommended in sets of 4! You can have a nautical theme, a beard theme, a woodland theme or simply pick your favorites for you or family and friends. They make an interesting conversation piece and a unique collection for your home.

March Madness! For curvy vintage.

 

How has everyone enjoyed their March so far? I am loving this warm weather and wind! Simply my favorite season.

So I have done a bunch more shopping for my curvy soul sisters! I know how difficult it can be to find all those cute vintage dresses out there for a curvy size so made it my mission to hunt them down and make them available for you!

Here are new dresses I will slowly be introducing to TOH on Etsy

 

The lot for march is an exciting one if I do say so myself!

These will be available for purchase soon in the shop! Just keep a close eye.

If you are dying to make a dress yours before I list it on Etsy you are more then welcome to contact me with the little number you have in mind!  I don’t mind one bit! I will give you the rundown of price and how it fits and we can talk further from there!

 

Hooray! Here is to more great shopping and fantastic new finds!

I hope you all have a wonderful night and thanks for stopping by!
