If you have followed me for awhile, you know we have a 6 year old Havanese named Hemingway. As the name suggests, Havanese are from Havana, Cuba. We wanted a name that captured his homeland but were a little worried screaming something like "Castro" at a dog park on Capitol Hill might raise some eyebrows.
We are those crazy dog people. Which is fitting because our dog is crazy. I don't mean, quirky. I mean...he is on Prozac for separation anxiety and escapes most enclosures kind of crazy. Bless it. He is so sweet and so nuts.
I was cleaning out my phone the other day and came across some pics of our trip years ago to Key West and was laughing at how we just HAD to go see Hemingway's House because of our dog. Turns out, it was and is one of my favorite and most inspirational spaces I had ever seen. Read More
My feet are tired and my heart is happy!
It took a tremendous amount of take out food and my village of parents and friends but Lord-Help-Me....we are in the new house!
I am not even going to get into it but nothing has made me feel as old as this move has. I am just brain dead and worn out and I can't find my foundation and I am not entirely mad about that. (Ha!)

I had another post planned for today but when news broke about Kate Spade's death, I don't know, I got really upset.
I am going to be honest, I sort of grew out of her stuff a few years ago but that doesn't mean I don't still have a few of her purses or dresses (that I still love). I especially love this dress I bought for my engagement pictures years ago that was so special to me... Read More
I am coming up on the one year anniversary of Capitol Vintage Charm and sweet sassy moo-lasy, I sho have learned some stuff.
I am hoping to freshen up the look of the Etsy store and start including some furniture. I am also going to start focusing more on decor items and less on tableware. (But for my tableware lovers, I will still include some items, just not as much as I maybe have in the past).
But, mainly, I am looking to change the purpose of this blog some. Obviously, vintage is where my heart is. It will always be what I love. Antiques and vintage items are just so soulful. I feel like they share stories without us even knowing it, you know? Read More
