no computer yet! it's still at the computer doctor...so so bummed because i won't be able to do any Etsy / eBay postings...will try to finish a blog at the library tomorrow which i already started...but if not i will pick up next week where i left off and update the shop slowly during the week...
well since i have no computer and bella vintage internet work to do i will fill my weekend with house cleaning stuff as well as creative stuff..lots of sewing will be my remedy to my blues..sketching, playing wii with my Zoe and re-vamping vintage pieces to get ready to hit the shop..
what are you guys up to this weekend? have you ever had a computer-less weekend??

yikes! this week has been one stressful week!! my computer has been giving me problems since Sunday and now it is completely gone awry..i have it now at the computer doctor so all eBay / Etsy updates are on hold + blogs...bummer because i was looking forward to getting back to a working rhythm and getting back to a regular blogging routine..so i will keep you posted when all is back on track and the store update will take place..
i'm doing some blogging at work....i have allot of new blog post in the pipeline that i can't wait to share..but for now just a little randomness, since these has been such a scattered week for me..the following are pictures of people with the exception of Miss Westwood (one of my fave designers) i grew up listening to and who's style one way or another has influenced me ....just to name a few:
hope your having a lovely mid-week!

hello! hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday..i am! on this rainy one in beautiful California..my weekend was a great one Zoe went to a sleepover on Friday and i prepared for a Bella Vintage photo-shoot for Saturday..then i had a great time with good freinds at an art opening for an amazing artist (pictures to come)..it was nice having a social night out and getting a break from my responsibilities to my small business which i only truly have the weekends & nights to tend too along with single mother-hood..it had been a while so thanks to my kiddo-sitter!
i finally am starting e-bay auctions once again for all of you vintage loving gals whom like the bidding wars..fingers crossed, which really means late nights the following items will go live midnight tonight latest Monday night!
i'm starting with 10 auctions for now but will eventually work up to have a steady 20 thru 40 weekly auctions..it's a matter of time..
here's what's to come:

just wanted to say a quick hello since it's been almost a full week since my last blog post... it's been a very straining & draining week trying to get back into routine and playing catch up at home, work and filling Bella Vintage orders at night...oh and did i mention also being a mom ;)...
well i'm back tonight pounding the keyboards for another blog post sneak peek on what is to come to Bella Vintage on eBay this coming Sunday..Zoe has a sleepover so as usual i will be taking the opportunity to work without distractions....so fun will have to wait till tomorrow..
i leave you with this suuuper cute flashback picture of Kate Moss..she look great all natural as usual...

it's sooo nice to be home..i got in on Friday night after being on vacation for two weeks in Miami..it was a fun time with freinds, family & running around all over South Florida..i did not get to do many of the things i had planned to do but i made the best of my time and well also relished in all the wedding preparation / celebration of my best friend Viv's wedding..
it feels so weird to be back, not having worked at all for these past two weeks and i am trying to coach myself on how to get back into the grind of things..i have a big to do list for this week catching up on bella vintage stuff and not to mention the project request, e-mails and samples i have waiting for me to catch up on at work!
i am excited for what is to come in 2010 though, all that i need to tackle and accomplish for bella vintage..this year i am pouring my commitment and endless sleepless nights to making bella vintage a top notch vintage clothing source on the web and am also looking forward to placing more of my time on the development of a very tiny clothing line just to get all my creative juices flowing..the last couple of months i have had dreams with some amazing pieces and have woken up giving thanks to God for these dreams..i have many ideas i want to translate onto paper, into my finger tips and out of my sewing machine..no room for procrastination..all very exciting
well i leave you with this beautiful picture i took on some rocks by an ocean shore in Coconut Grove Florida..the blogging i know has been very minimal..but now i'm back to my regular schedule!
this picture looks to me like a painting..the clouds, sky and building all nicely painted on the water
hoping you have a great start of the week..
