Not Quite Vintage

So there has been a little change in my shop... My shop name was " Knit with Love" since that is my blog name... but if you have noticed I don't have one thing of knitting in my shop OR blog... bad me... But I made this blog along time ago when I was a knittin' fool... SO with that being said I wanted to change my Etsy name before I started applying for some shows.... You know so I can be "professional" with a name that actually reflected my items for purchase! I went to Lazy Daisy Marie actually through twitter and she helped me out MAJOR! I was shocked with how wonderful my banner turned out! I love love love love love it!!! Check out her Shop and message her if you need a revamp! She is super sweet and delivers! SO check out my new banner!!! Tell me what you think! Isn't it so me?



I got so inspired by her wonderful banner I started taking pictures of all the things I had made but not yet listed. This one is by far my favorite:

My apricot dupioni silk headband... :::swoon::: I love it...

Apricot silk fancy rosette

I took pictures of it on my vintage train case...

Oh I LOVE the new banner! That fits your shop perfectly! I love all the new headpieces too, but I'm pretty partial to the apricot one...and the train case is such a great display for them!

I love the banner and the name! Too bad there is already a 'not quite vintage' blog or else you could have just changed all your urls. your headbands are sooo beautiful. I am also a vintage lover. Do you have a local vintage shoppers map? I can give you one when we meet. I also lovelovelove the train case.

Love the new banner! Oh lets see...I like both of the headbands so much...I can't decide, I think I would choose the marigold though because pink looks terrible on me.

Love the banner and the new name! I think it really suits you...

I really love the yellow headband. I'm not into yellow at all, but I do love that shade. So pretty!

They are the cutest and the most intelligent! Eustace was so easy to train when he was a tiny little puppy. Now hes 5!Sometimes I wonder if he thinks he's a human...

Hey Brook,

The new banner and name sound like a good idea...it took me back to Amy's pillow but I wondered if you recognized the graphics from here or if you have picked up any of this fabric as it might be handy.
