NEW vintage spoon rings— giveaway!

We are super excited about our new vintage spoon rings,
and it seems that many of you are loving them too!

We took old spoons and handcasted them in fine pewter.
They can be left blank or handstamped with your choice of initial in either our uppercase or lowercase plain letters.
The “vintage baroque” is on the left, “classic oval” is in the middle and the “sweet victorian” is on the right–
so far the sweet victorian is the most popular,
it’s already getting close to being sold out!

Let’s give one away!
Simply leave a comment below telling us which vintage spoon ring is your favorite to be entered.
Facebook it, instagram it (#thevintagepearl) or tweet it (@thevintagepearl) for extra entries,
please leave a separate comment for each.

We will pick 3 random winners (one for each ring!) later this week,
happy wednesday!
p.s. Don’t forget to get FREE domestic SHIPPING with the code “shipmyspoon”,
expires at midnight tomorrow (Thursday) night!

back to reality and a couple of goals.

Sadly, Christmas break is over-
the kids went back to school and I’m back in the studio today.

We had such a great break, it’s hard to believe it’s over,
I had a hard time dropping the kids off at school this morning!
I thought Eden was going to shed a few tears also,
but she was brave and held it together.
 photo boys-dec13-2.jpg
I woke up yesterday morning and started cleaning, organizing and purging-
I realized as I was making dinner last night that I was still in my pj’s–
but it feels so good to start the New Year off a little more organized
and with less junk around the house!

I look at these pictures and I can’t believe how big my kids are getting!
When I first started blogging Eden (my youngest) wasn’t born yet and
I think my Caleb (my oldest) was 6-
and he’s about to turn 13 soon!

A couple of my “goals” for 2014 are to take more pictures of my family with my real camera
(not my iPhone)
and to blog more often
(I’ve gotten really lazy about blogging!)
I’d love to hear what YOUR 2014 goals are, and if you have a blog please link me,
I’d love to stop by!

Happy New Year, our 2013 highlights!

Happy New Year everyone, 2013 was a GREAT year!
Some of my favorite highlights were:
launching our brand new website in February-
we had outgrown our old site and was ready for a new look and love how it turned out:

In March we launched our newest font, “lowercase lucy”,
which is so fun and has become a customer favorite:

Making thousands of “love for Oklahoma” necklaces to help tornado victims after the devastating Moore, OK tornado in May-
our little company raised and donated over $230,000!

In October, one of our favorite stores, Mardel, placed some of our wholesale collection pieces on their shelves-
so exciting and such an honor!

And we opened our third retail store in Houston, TX in November!
