Group 12! :)

Check out this post over on the Freckled Nest Blog. A few weeks ago Leigh-Ann was kind enough to offer a free ad to anyone who replied to the post for her 5 year blogging anniversary. I replied kinda late but she still put my ad up and here it is! :)

Leigh-Ann featured a group in a post every day and that is what the screen shot is. Thanks for featuring Holliewould Vintage, LA!

Every so often I am going to share one of my MANY collections. I think like many other vintage lovers/crafty people, I find many things interesting and like to collect a lot of It is just so hard to pass up a perfectly beautiful old camera or kitchy figurine!! That is why it is good for me to have an Etsy shop, so I can purchase these things and be able to enjoy them a little bit but then be able to share them with someone else. The first collection I want to share is my vintage camera collection.

I have been collecting vintage cameras for probably close to 3 years now. I have amassed quite the collection. I got them all together recently because I realized it was time to let some go. But OF COURSE I had to photograph them all together first!

I just LOOOVEE all their different shapes, colors and sizes. I have been a lover of photography ever since middle school and just love having these old pieces displayed in my home as a reminder of a very amazing art form.

*The cameras that 'didn't make the cut' are starting to appear in my Etsy shop. Check them out!!

Wheezy Wednesday

Sometimes Wheez is laying down relaxing and her face just does crazy things......

Tuesday, June 7, 2011


A month ago we adopted a beautiful kitten. We had been thinking about it for awhile but I was always afraid of how Wheezy would react to another animal in her territory (she IS NOT a fan of other dogs. She will SOMETIMES tolerate smaller dogs). She can be a little grumpy sometimes and doesn't like any other animals around her food. But Wheezy DOES get along with my parents cat so we decided that as long as we got a kitten it should be fine.

We got her from the local animal rescue league and named her.... Angel Batista (pronounced On Hail-- she is Cuban :)). Any Dexter fans out there? We are big Dexter fans and named her after one of our favorite characters on the show even though that character is a guy and she is a pretty girl kitty :)

It has been interesting having a cat around. My dad is allergic so we never had any growing up and I have never considered myself a 'cat person'. The boyfriend really wanted her. But she has just wiggled her way into my heart!! Her purring is soooo precious and her stripes are just beautiful and she is playful but also likes to cuddle. She and Wheezy get along ok. Wheezy pretty much just ignores her...unless Angel jumps on her face, then she gets a little snappy.

My only problem with her is the above photo.... She likes to climb. I thought her climbing the screen was pretty funny & cute at first. Until she started climbing my curtains. She LOVES to climb the curtains and I am worried about them getting tears and pulls in them. And I am not sure how to discipline a cat. It doesn't seem to be the same as a dog cause she isn't

Any suggestions??
