Hosting the Vintage Tea Party this past weekend inspired me to look for tea sets and sophisticated table settings. I was delighted when I came across the shop Petit Poulailler on Etsy. There store is filled with exquisite table dressings, jewelry, ephemera, and other lil' vintage findings. Of course I zeroed in on the gorgeous tea sets and sugar and creamer sets. Here are a few that I selected for this week's vintage finds!

The most gorgeous 195o's cardigan with mink collar and rhinestone buttons!
I hosted a vintage shopping tea party this past weekend in a beautiful parlour of a Brooklyn Brownstone. Thank you to everyone who came and to all of my friends for their support. It was a lot of fun and some great vintage items found new homes!

I have finally listed some of my handmade dresses and blouses into my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail! I will be listing some more styles soon as well as some feather headbands from craft night. I promise! Vintage listings will be posted in my eBay store Femme Fatale Vintage late Thursday night as usual. Due to preparing for my Tea Party this weekend I am re-listing some unsold items that you may have missed. Don't miss out this time. Brand new goodies will be posted next week. I promise!

Invite the girls over, break out the glue, and let the magic happen! Once a month my crafty gals join me for a craft night, or stitch 'n bitch as we call it. This month we made feather headbands and clips. Sometimes we just bitch, but this time we were very productive. Stay tuned, I'm going to put some of my creations up for sale in my Etsy store, TheSparklingCocktail, real soon.
