Changing My Mind


I've decided to change what I am selling on Etsy. Instead of random vintage items I am going back to selling vintage clothes along with some of my own handmade vintage designs. I am not new at selling vintage clothing, I worked at a large vintage clothing and costume shop in Denver about 11 years ago. After that I started selling clothing and vintage clothing on Ebay for a couple of years. Below are a few of my past items sold. Visit Rosiemoonbeams shop for recently listed vintage clothing.

Scary, Spooky, Haunted and Forbidden

As summers end is near, here I am already thinking about Halloween and scary, spooky, haunted and forbidden things, so I created this Etsy Treasury.
Some of the items I chose to showcase:
antique coffin circa 1900s, haunted house, antique macabre embalming book, creepy old baby doll and a vintage photo of a scary woman.

Here are some of my other Etsy Treasuries - Oddities , Bittersweet and

Reuse Old Crates for Display and Storage

Old soda pop crates can be reused for storage or display, especially the ones that held individual bottles. The Coke crate below can hold 24 little treasures in its cubbyholes.
Listed at my Etsy store is a vintage San Bernardino 64 Coca Cola wood crate with 24 cubbyholes.

Found Wood Headboard Recycled into Paneled Wall and Shelf

Here is a headboard that was found sitting by a dumpster outside of an apartment building. I guess in an attempt to make it look shabby chic someone had painted it white using only one coat of paint.
There was already hangers on the back so it could be hung behind any bed easily. But since my bed already had a headboard that matched the rest of the bedroom furniture I knew I would have to get creative to find a use for it. After looking around the house for a place I found out that it was the same length as my desk in my workspace. I have a huge old oak office desk where I have my computer, scanner, drawing tablet and stereo.

I paint the headboard purple with a semi-gloss enamel. I had to change the hanging brackets to line up with where the studs were. And with the help of my son we hung it behind the desk creating a panel wall look and a small shelf to display photos, art work and found objects.

I love how it turned out!

The Key to My Heart Resin Pendant and Vintage Jewelry Necklaces

I wanted to make something special for Valentine's Day so I started looking through all my treasures. Some people might call it junk! Since I get my inspiration by looking at items grouped together laying on my work table I started pulling out pieces of vintage jewelry and anything that was red. I decided to make some necklaces combining the pieces of vintage jewelry. I also came across a group of old keys, not skeleton keys but just regular old small keys. I knew these would not work with the vintage jewelry but I wanted to use them somehow. Then I remembered during a resin making fest, I had made some resin hearts cast from a mold. I dug them out and decided that I could attach them to the key and the best part is that the key acts as the bail for the necklaces.

For the necklaces I used a vintage black Bakelite heart charm, a vintage mother of pearl heart charm and watch fob along with vintage and new chain.

For this one I used a collection of old charms, a little round locket, a framed vintage photo of a stranger and a vintage key attached to a vintage necklace. I just love these memory necklaces they are so romantic.

For my resin "Key To My Heart" pendants I glued my resin hearts that I had made previously onto my old keys.To make the resin hearts I added glitter, tiny beads, punched out stars and little strips of paper that was rubber stamped with an old rubber stamp set. The kind where each letter is separate and you add them to the holder, so you can make any word to stamp. I know I could print out words and that this way is a little time consuming but I like the look of the ink.

Here is the finished product. I used black silk cording for the necklaces looping them through the hole of the key.

Here is the Key To My Heart! Happy Valentine's Day!
