Airing out my Gypsy laundry...

I have been photographing all my fun props and vintage items lately.

We are starting a vintage prop rental business and I will be placing all my goodies online for potential clients to see and hopefully rent for their special event.

To stage them in a fun way I hung up all my vintage clothes on my...  are you ready??...  GYPSY WAGON!!!
I got this lovely old wagon about a month ago in trade for doing an event.  It is in sad, let me repeat SAD shape but that's OK.  I will enjoy getting it all fixed up!  I can't wait to have tea in it someday soon.  You can better believe I will post all about it, ad nauseum, you will probably get sick of it!
This really is a dream come true.  I have wanted one for years!  I still can't believe it's mine.  
Anyway back to the vintage prop rental business.  I need your help with a name.  Here are a couple I have come up with but I would love to get your ideas.  
Vintage Vignettes
Pretty Props
Salvaged Stuff

After the first name it goes down hill I know.  Any great ideas?  I would love to hear them.
Also I think I mentioned a while back a steam punk wedding I had the tremendous fun of designing.
It is on the blog site called Ruffled.  Here is a link to the post.  It was SUPER FUN!!!  As soon as I get the photos from the photographer I will do a huge post on it.  I was truly one of the best ever.  You can get your curiosity going by looking at Ruffled and then hopefully in a week or so I will have tons of pics to show.

That's it for now, just stopping by.  Hope you are all super well!!!
Back in a flash (hopefully) with loads of pics

By the way, I cannot tell a lie.  My neighbor took these photos with her... PHONE!  It beats the heck out of anything I took with my fancy pants camera...  *sigh*
There is a reason I don't make a living with a camera, much better with flowers.


  1. I saw the wedding on Ruffled a few days ago, it's soooo gorgeous.

    Your gypsy caravan looks wonderful, can't wait to see what you do with it.

    Oh and I think I like Vintage Vignettes best. :-)


  2. Oh WOW!!! How cool! I would love to see it when you fix it up!

  3. ohhhh Tricia ! Cant I have this laundry? :D:D:D J.K. I went to the link for the wedding and I was blown away. I love being blown away! Tricia you are truly talented. I wish I liked thrifting but alas it is far too much driving and work. I have however recently done this and I did find treasures! I guess treasures require effort. Name suggestions: ''Vintage Beauty Rentals'' "Vintage Memories For Hire" ? blessings, Lady

  4. I'm so jealous of that wagon!

    As far as a name, I kind of like two of them together, "vintage vignettes and pretty props"

  5. Proper Pretty Props Party Rental...
    Vision Vintage Vignettes...
    Sump'n Special Salvaged Stuff...
    All the best and much success on your new adventure!
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  6. How about "The Traveling Gypsy's Trunk" -?

  7. I have to say, I've been coming to your blog for sometime now and I just love it, I can sit here sipping my green tea and just revel in all your glory!!!
    by the way... I like "The Traveling Gypsy's Trunk"
    But, pretty props is good also!
    Please keep posting, I live for this!!!!! lol...

  8. I would name it: "Rent a dream"! ;)



  9. OMG Tricia, your Gypsy Vardo is fabulous, I'm so Happy for you! And I will never get tired of your Shared Inspirations & Events... so share away, I can't wait to see how you Transform this into a Gypsy Haven Heaven! I agree with Cielo, "Rent A Dream" would be a great Name because it would cover whatever Prop you had available to bring someone's Dream to Life.

    I'm still waiting for The Man to discover my Vardo, I want a Project so I don't care about condition so long as it has good bones... because I want to put my own signature & mark on it.

  10. Wishing you all the best on your new business venture. How about the name Vintage Pretties.

  11. Lovely!!!

    sometimes you don't have to be a Gypsy to air your laundry ;) It is eco-friendly!
