Biology, Bingo, and (a Little Bit of) Bling.

Recent vintage finds on Etsy include a mild-mannered feline with emerald green eyes, a cream-colored silk dress bedecked in gold sequins, a nearly century-old guide to Jiu Jitsu, and a dictionary twenty-thousand words strong. Who says antiquing has to be a snooze?

LOVE that dress, it caught my eye right away.

Question: how do you make that picture grid? I've been trying to figure out how to make one for some time now, but despite my (what I think are quite advanced =P) Googling skills, I haven't had any luck.

Oh my gosh - the Edwardian Guide to Jiu Jitsu is hilarious! I too am in love with this beautiful and lady-like dress! What awesome finds, Shoko - they brightened my day!

The vintage dress is divine!
Love all of your finds.

Shoko said...

The dress is amazing, I know - if only I had an occasion to wear it!

Raquel, I make them using Photoshop. I was totally lost before taking Blogshop, but the collage-making isn't too complicated. Do you have a Photoshop-savvy friend in LA who could give you some pointers?

Christina, was that a few weeks ago already? So great to meet you, too!
