Where the wild mint grows...

Last weekend was intended to be spent yard sailing and thrift raiding but the weather was not working in our favor.  We came across sign after sign stating "canceled due to rain" which led to me throwing a brief hissy fit.  After a momentary pouting season and some smile negotiating on Christopher Robin's part we decided not to let the clouds rain on our parade and find another way to spend our Saturday morning alone.  It seems all too rare that Christopher Robin and I have these precious moments away from the hustle and bustle to just relax and laugh.  We parked and debated alternate locations until finally settling on one we had not visited in sometime.  Only a mile down and a make shift cross bridge away was our new destination...

With the last month being upward of ninety degrees on a daily basis the lush greenery is already becoming a thing of the past on The Thousand Acre Woods.  Luckily Mother Nature was still dressed in her finest green hues down by the creek bed.  With the bubbling creek as our soundtrack and vegetation as our back drop we enjoyed the cool crisp breeze.

We decided to travel a little deeper into the thicket when an all too familiar sweet scent caught my attention.  I had to investigate the origin of the aroma... if only I could get there...

After clearing the fallen tree and trekking another few feet we found our source... wild mint!

Sprinkle of Life... May ®


♥ This post features my Read to Me feature. Look for this symbol ® next to post titles where this feature is present. Read to Me player is located at the bottom of posts. Enjoy! ♥

So I want to start by saying sorry for my lack of physical presence within my posts as of late!  This is due to a multiple of reasons.  One being I am currently between hair colors which means I am currently rockin a pretty pathetic turquoise tint... Second being that I have not been allowed to wonder The Thousand Acre Woods, per Christopher Robin's orders.  Why you ask?  We are currently on "lion alert" meaning a mountain lion had recently been sighted on our land.  So if over grown, washed out tresses were not enough to detour me... becoming an oversized purr-boxes' lunch was!


So I am currently on front yard lock down forcing me to be confined to the written word... for now!  I figure, while the threat is still high, now, was a better time than any, to give everyone a little life updating.  Things have been beautifully busy!  Graphic designs, shop orders, and good old spring cleaning have been keeping me more than busy.  Christopher Robin has begun his seasonal work up towards Yosemite Valley, which I love!  I love how happy he is everyday with the work he does in his very own woodland office.  He truly loves working with his hands and being around those who share his passion for the outdoors.  He promises to sneak me away with him so that I can explore the vast wilderness of just under four thousand acres complete with two lakes and meadows as far as the eye can see.  It's an adventurer's paradise!  His bosses are the kindest people throwing bonfires and barbecues for their crew while making sure no one ever leaves with an empty belly!  He started late in the season last year so we never got the chance to partake in such festivities but this season is sure to be different!

So all in all things have been wonderful on The Thousand Acre Woods!  All the furries are happy, healthy, and keeping close to home.  Which isn't their cup of tea... but they are dealing, just as I am, with our current confined situation.  As soon as our uninvited neighbor moves on to new territories we will be free to again play.  Here is hoping that we are bad neighbors!  For all my new readers I hope you enjoyed the read to me!  Sorry it's been so long since I've featured it!

Love & Lollies...

Follower Appreciation Day #4



I, of course, want to start of by saying thank you so much to all my beautiful supporters!  Yesterday Caked Vintage met another milestone thanks to your love and continuous support!

As the blog grows the original concept of the Follower Appreciation "Friday" becomes more difficult for me to deliver,  but I enjoy designing original works for all of you so much that I decided to just change it slightly.

For this Follower Appreciation Day all my followers will have the chance to win a custom design package for either their Etsy Shop or Blog Buttons designed by me!  They will also have their ad displayed in my sidebar for a month as a medium space!

I wanted to provide a better opportunity for everyone to have a chance to win... no more "quickest" fingers!  Thank you all so much and good luck!  I will be announcing one winner on Thursday the 24th!

Love & Lollies...

Custom Designs... Bows, Bangles, + Bakes

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on creating custom designs for Miss Jenni over at Bows, Bangles, + Bakes.  It started as a simple request for a button resizing and before you know it my creative lust turned it into a custom header assembled by custom photos taken by yours truly and a button package to match.  The results are quite darling and perfectly fit the overall theme desired by Jenni.

New Header...





New buttons...








I am so happy that Jenni is so pleased with the outcome of her Caked Designs!  At the end of the day nothing brings me joy quite like translating someone's vision into a piece of art.  Thank you Jenni for allowing me to help create your vision!

Be sure to head over to Bows, Bangles, + Bakes and see the results and read her absolutely delightful post about Caked Vintage!

Love & Lollies... Jessa
