share a blessing.


We LOVE to bless people,
and we LOVE surprises,
so this Christmas season we want to help you share some unexpected love and joy with others!

Let’s bless someone that could use some extra holiday cheer this year with a sweet gift–
we want to send them a surprise package with a TVP goodie!

Do you know someone who is going through some tough times
and needs to be blessed with a meaningful “pick me up”?

To nominate someone,
simply send us an email at customerservice@thevintagepearl.com–
put “SHARE A BLESSING” in the subject box,
briefly tell us WHY you are nominating this person,
and we also need to know:
1. their name
2. their address
3. customizing info
(kids names, meaningful words or a special date,
whatever you think will put a smile on their face!)

We will bless as many as we can this year!

vellum over glass (easy gift idea!)

I got this idea from Ashley and had to give it a try.
It’s SO easy and makes a special gift!

You need:
1. a large glass votive (I got mine for $3 at Micheael’s)
2. vellum paper (also from Michael’s, under $1)
3. a candle (found one laying around the house)

1. Pick your picture and print it out on vellum paper,
I picked this one of my brother and his kids:

2. Wrap the velum paper around the large glass votive,
tape it in the back,
and then add the candle inside…

Looks great in the day,
or turn the lights out and enjoy!

Such a sweet gift for grandparents, friends, moms, etc. (or brothers!)

reflecting back and feeling thankful.

Sometimes it’s fun to think about how TVP first started…
It’s been a fun but sometimes very bumpy ride!
This was my first “workspace” in 2007, aka my kitchen counter…

Then I moved my stuff here-
I stamped inside the closet back there-
(in an attempt to get all of my stuff off the kitchen counters)
Ryan turned an unused wet bar closet into a workspace for me…

and then sat here at this table in my living room
to finish the pieces and answer emails.

I was needing help-
I can remember in December of 2008 sitting at this table and looking at all of the orders I had in front on me and I just started crying from feeling way overwhelmed- I had 4 kids, including a 6 month old, and all of these orders were Christmas presents and there was no way I was going to get them all done alone. So a friend of mine jumped in and started shipping the packages so I could be free just to make the pieces-
and we made it!

Sometimes I wonder what if I had had no willing friends to help me?
But they did, and we have fun together…

The workshop is already bustling with Christmas orders
and sometimes I just sit back in amazement and think how thankful I am-

–for friends that jumped in and helped me, even though it meant alot of late nights and early mornings,
-for customers who purchased our creations and have cheered us on along the way and have spread the word about TVP- your sweet emails and positive feedback has meant more to us than you know,
-for supportive spouses that were understanding when we crawled into bed at 3am for many nights in a row and had to eat out every night because we had no time to cook,
-for our families that loved us even when we were grumpy from lack of sleep,
-but most of all to God for having His hand on our business and blessing it!

champagne briolettes.


These swarovski champagne briolettes are messily wire wrapped in sterling silver
and hung on sterling silver ear wires.

Dressy enough for your Christmas party dress or bridesmaids gifts,
yet still pretty with jeans!
