Thank you so much for checking in today!  I’m finally back from a whirlwind trip to visit scores of family in Illinois.  Though wonderful to see everyone, it is so good to be back home!  I’m excited to dive right back into Pursuing Vintage!  And, with spring right around the corner, I’m looking forward to stocking the Pursuing Vintage Shop with even more unique and beautiful hand-picked decor and furnishings.

To kick off Spring (I use that term loosely because I’m not convinced yet!) I want to share some new finds with you.  (Access each product listing by clicking directly on the image.)

Vintage Artist Self Portrait

I think there’s a little something here for everyone!  All of the new finds are in the Pursuing Vintage Shop.  The Shop will now redirect you to Etsy.  I fiddled with the Shop a bit more over the break, and decided it was best to have all of the listings on Etsy.  That way all of the photos and product information are in one place.  However, you can still view Past Finds right here on the website.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Have a Happy Monday!




Spring break is here and we’re off to visit family for a week!  (I’m sure my air travel experience will look just like this!)

I’ll be working on some fun things for when I return, and touching base on Facebook and Pinterest.  And hopefully finishing a book or two!

See you soon!


Emerald Green

I’m part Irish.  No, seriously, I am!  Although, a few years ago, my brother did some research and found out that we’re not AS IRISH as we thought we were (having Murphy grandparents, we thought we were half leprechaun).  It’s kind of become a family joke.  My brother even had this Tshirt made:

1:12 Irish

In honor of my Irish heritage (!) and St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I’d share some fabulous emerald green home decor!












Break out your emerald green, whether you wear it or decorate with it… you know, since we’re all Irish today!
