inspiration in a friend's blog and biz

I love that "Liz Loves Vintage"...

Elizabeth Hanley is a spirited soul, she is kind and generous in her support of others' endeavors so it's time we give a shout out to this blogger as she launches her new Etsy page and biz..."Liv Loves Vintage"...

As a Facebook friend and fellow fan of the handmade and vintage life, I first met Liz at our Spring Soiree in May...here she is with our special guest, Jo Packham...

These images tell the story of her look...her loves and her personal style as a huntress of the old and the treasured...




I asked Liz to prepare a write up for me to post to the blog on her behalf...here's what she has to say about herself:

Dreaming "Vintageness" in the wee hours is not an uncommon practice for me.
When Jen told me she would like to feature me on her blog. I was so delighted
to share my story.

So here it begins...

One year ago a inspiring thing happened. One, menopause. I wasn't going to
write that. Now the word is out. Oh, well. Two, my Blog. Believe it or not, I am an awful writer...

I love to shop at the Flea. So, this concept of Liz loving Vintage came into fruition.

This gave me the inspiration I was longing for with an added zest to be creative.

Photography has opened the door once again. Now, I'm truly hooked.

I wear many hats. I'm a Mom, Homemaker, Wife, Advocate for Battered Women
and work a FT job with Special Needs Children. I was in desperate need of a hobby. It worked. A great stress reliever at that!

Doing what I love best and loving all things Vintage. I dreamed of opening a shop withmuch apprehension. Hubby was unemployed. It was long overdue.LizlovesVintage opened in May, 2011 on Etsy. Here I add a little bit of Vintage with a touch of Liz in each handpicked item for sale. I frequent fleas, estates of many and thrift to proclaim a job well done.Well never done. What fun would that be?

So, this is the ever so short Bio of me ( Elizabeth Hanley) My passion for everything old, unique and vintage.

Thanks everyone for all your support. A great ending to a great year!!

And her cheer for the day!
Wait for the day that makes all things clear. Then, spread your wings.
Fly, Fly, Fly... Follow your dream. I followed mine.


You go Liz!!!! I know your keen and artful eye will take you far!
And I sure hope to see you soon...

xxoo Jen O'Connor

I'm a big fan of Liz and can't wait to see what she finds when out shopping. Great idea to highlight her! BTW, I saw you guys are going to be at Country Living Fair so I'll stop by and check out your booth. Good luck at the show!
