Online shop update & other news!

Well hello there old friends! Oh boy, it's been another couple of months since you've seen any sign of us. To say things have been busy would be an understatement. For now the blog is being put on the back burner until things calm down even more. We are happy to report that things are good to the home front! Lots has changed since we were last regularly posting, and we will update you guys as soon as we are ready. Until then, thanks for continuing to check in on us around these parts. It means a lot. Alright, without further ado, here's a look at what I've (Erin) been keep somewhat busy with - a big shop update!

This is a piece I had in my mind for the past year, and this past month I finally got to see it to fruition with the help of my crazy talented sister, Megan of Margot Pollo. I will be making more of them with Meg on Saturday and will be adding more sizes to the shop by Sunday night.

Of course I had to make more of these Coach Taylor sweatshirts too!

These prints on fabric look so great framed or just pinned up! Coming to the shop later today!


 Today I will be adding a wonderful selection of vintage clothes to the shop! If you're in need of a new piece for Spring, come and check out the bold patterns and brightly coloured dresses that I have in store!

I've also loaded up the vintage housewares section, and it's full of super fun, kitschy pieces like the swan measuring cups!

How about a pretty new vintage dress? I've got plenty! (coming soon)

 My sis Meg also printed these baby onesies and sweatshirts that will be available starting April 9 at my Pop up Vintage Sale which is taking place here in Winnipeg at my house. Check out the Facebook event here for more info.
Another peek at the housewares that are now available online!

I have decided that with it being March and all, I should give you guys the chance at another discount! So from now until Sunday, you can use the code "SPRINGTHOUGHTSHAPES" to get 20% off any order over $30! Happy shopping!

XO, Erin

What Erin's been up to this Summer

I can't even believe that August is quickly coming to an end. Summer has whipped past, but August in particular has slipped between my fingers! Oh what a wonderful Summer it has been. One of the best, that's for sure. Here's a little peek at what I've been doing these days away from my computer.
I have been helping my uncle purge and clean his house for the past couple of weeks on and off in preparation for my cousin's wedding which will be on his yard this week! In doing so, I came home with a huge stack of new vinyl from his huge collection. Billie Holiday and this one here are two of my favourites from the bunch.

Brunch on my sister's new porch with my dear old friend Janelle who was visiting from Montreal for a week.

I've had a lot of time to set up my still somewhat new apartment. 

Of course I've managed to get some much needed sun! Our weather has been pretty magical this Summer.

Greenhouses with my love. The man who "doesn't see the point of flowers".

Summer wouldn't be complete without watermelon and rollkuchen! If you're not familiar with this doughy piece of Heaven, you really should be. Deep fried dough with the special sauce, which is two parts brown sugar to one part whipping cream. A-mazing.

On the topic of delicious food, I also ate these unbelievable deep fried pickles. I had the pleasure of going to the Winnipeg Folk Festival for one day, and got to listen to Bahamas, Kurt Vile and Shakey Graves. 

I got a new swimsuit from Asos just in time for a few heatwaves!

No shortage of pool days this year.

Summer wouldn't be complete without picking peas from the garden and shelling them by the pool!

More time spent finding homes for things in my home.

I've had the pleasure of making new friends and breaking in my sunroom. This is my friend Izzy, and she's kind of the best. While we were drinking tiki drinks and listening to the rain, my shelves on the wall came crashing down out of nowhere, breaking all of my new potted plants. 

I put up new shelves in my sunroom a few days later, and re-potted the plants!

Another things I did this Summer was go sailing with Gareth! It was on our list of things to do together, so he signed us up, and away we went! 

Off to Gimli on an overcast day. This was our boat for the day!

Sailing was so much fun! Something I can definitely see us getting more into. I mean why wouldn't I, with a skipper as cute as a button?

Speaking of buttons, I mentioned earlier that I've been helping my uncle, and part of that project was dealing with "his room" which is a room that was filled to the brim with amazing old tins and collectibles, matchbooks and knick knacks galore. I was in Heaven, but I definitely had my work cut out for me trying to organize it all. These were some of my favourite things I came across.

More sunroom time. This was taken a few days when they says were pitch black at noon before we got hit with a monsoon-like storm!

Tiny tea parties have been a constant in my life this Summer as I've been spending time with Gareth's two little girls. It's been pretty incredible getting to know this big part of his life.

Well folks, that's all for now. I'm off to run errands for my cousin's wedding this weekend! We have the rehearsal dinner tonight, and relatives are flying in as we speak! Time to get this party started!
Xo, Erin

Our last pop up, and the next.

A few weeks back, we participated in the second Wildwood Rose Vintage Festival. The first few hours were great. There was an amazing turn out and the sun was shining temporarily. Unfortunately the clouds rolled in, and before we knew it the rain came and put an end to our day. There was one point where we saw a wall of rain out of nowhere and in the 20 seconds we ran to get our giant tarp to cover everything, it was too late. Everything got soaked, so we spent the rest of the day doing laundry and wiping everything down. That said, it still was a pretty fun day, and we are looking forward to the next event which is only a week away!

Next Saturday, find us here:
The Good Will Social Club at 625 Portage Ave for the "Smart Design Mart". We'll be there with a bunch of our friends from noon until 5, so come and find us! Click this Facebook page for more info.

All set up!

This girl's outfit was so on point - roller-skates and all.

 The day started out nicely, and we are getting pretty quick at setting up!

Unfortunately we are the only ones there without a tent to cover us, so this massive tarp helped...a little bit. At least friends showed up!

Thank goodness for wine and good friends to get you through the day!
See you at the next one, which thankfully is indoors (and sangria is on special!) so it won't matter what's going on outside, it'll be a party on the inside!


Hope to see you there!
XO, Erin & Stef
