Giving Thanks with Vintage Corsages!

Let's Eat Thanksgiving CorsageThe air is getting crisp and the nights are chilly! It’s a special time of year here in Southern Appalachia and nature is turning out in a spectacular display. Vibrant hues of rust, orange, golden yellow, and sienna brown are splashed across the mountains. The sunlight is mellow and it is hard to stay indoors during these special days. As I watch the leaves gently fluttering down, I give thanks for having the good fortune to live on such a lovely landscape.

I interpret this special time of year in my corsages by using rich velvet millinery flowers and leaves in those same gorgeous colors. In this corsage, I’ve added a vintage spun cotton pilgrim couple. They are proud of their feast of roasted turkey and pumpkin pie. Look closely near the top and you’ll find a miniature bottle of wine tucked in too! These look great in centerpieces, wreaths, and displayed leaning against small easels on a mantle or tabletop. Of course, all the corsages I make can also be worn!

In addition to corsages, I’ve also paired a tussie mussie pin featuring a Pumpkin Pie Pilgrim with a vintage hankie. I love this hankie – it has a great Fall scene with leaves and a pheasant. The bar pin on the tussie mussie makes it easy to affix to your lapel – or your favorite cook’s apron! What a great hostess gift!

Pumpkin Pie Pilgrim PinI wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I hope you share fun and peace with family and friends – and that your travels are safe. I appreciate all my customers, and I am very grateful for your patronage.

I invite you to stop by the shop and check out all my holiday corsages. There is a great selection of holiday items, and I am adding more frequently. Also, check out my new CLEARANCE SECTION where you’ll find items that are marked down 50%. Take advantage of my end-of-the-year specials and pick up some great bargains. As always, use coupon code BLOG10 when you check out and get an extra 10% off everything in the shop – including clearance items! Check back here often as I’ll be updating my blog throughout the holidays!

Vintage Holiday Corsages Being Posted Now AND Announcing A Pink Swan

Vintage Golden Reindeer Christmas CorsageSummer is finally winding down here in North Carolina. Fall is trying to sneak up on us… Every once in a while, I can feel a cool wisp of wind sweep down the mountain, and the air is getting that dry touch that signals the turn of seasons here in Appalachia. I have been busy the last couple of months getting inventory ready for the shop – I’ve already posted some really cute Halloween and Thanksgiving corsages, and I am posting Christmas corsages every day, so stop by and pick out some vintage corsage goodness for the upcoming holidays!






A Pink Swan CircleYou will also begin to notice some changes over the next few months… Meaicp – my corsage shop will still host my corsages, tea cup gift sets, and tussie mussie pins, but I am slowing moving all my fabric over to a new Etsy shop that I just opened. It’s called A Pink Swan, and I will have all my craft supplies, vintage whimsies, and retro fabrics in that shop. When I originally opened Meaicp back in 2010, I thought that the same people who bought the fabric would be interested in the corsages, but in almost two years, I have only rarely sold a corsage and a yard of fabric to the same customer. Folks seem to stop by for either corsages or fabrics, but not both – so I am going to have the fabric and supplies, together in a new shop with its own identity. You can stop by and check it out here

I always love to hear from you, so stop by and say Hello. I truly appreciate my customers, and I would like to start posting some photos of all you wonderful ladies who are wearing my creations AROUND THE WORLD! Especially all the brides with their bridesmaids enjoying my vintage tea cup sets and future Moms at baby showers! If you have a photo you’d like to share on this blog, let me know and I’ll tuck in a special gift in your next order as a thank you!
