Today I'd like to introduce you to Scarlett of One Eyed Dog. We knew we wanted some pops of color for the grey walls we chose for baby girl's nursery, and my love for chevron caught the attention of Scarlett's Chevron Jewelry & Craft Wall Hook Organizers. I thought they'd make a perfect addition to hang baby headbands and sweet accessories, so we've teamed up with Scarlett to make one for the nursery and can't wait to show it to you in the big reveal.
Until then, I'd like for you to get to know the designer behind these handmade organizers as well as other items she hand makes in her shop including jewelry, hardware, bottle stoppers, clay items and more!
Hi Scarlett, welcome to Vintage Indie. We're so glad to have you here with us today.
Can you tell us what is your preferred medium?
I love working with paint! I work with different base mediums, like wood or clay, but my favorite step is always the painting! I just love colors. I love mixing them, coming up with pretty palettes, I even love my speckled, colorful hands at the end of a work day.
How did you get started?
I've always been an artist, and I've been selling traditional art for several years. I separated from the Air Force last year so I could dedicate more time to my passion for creating. One Eyed Dog was the result of a marathon brainstorming session with my husband. We wanted to start an Etsy shop where we could sell more functional art.
Who or what inspires you?
I'm inspired by animals!! I've always had a deep love for all creatures. I think animals make people happy, and having little animal objects here and there makes for a happy home.
We noticed that you're a husband and wife team in your business. How is it working with your spouse?
Working with my husband is great! Much like every other aspect of our marriage, with OED I am the right-brain and he is the left-brain. I think of what I want to make, he thinks of how to make it. I do the creative work, he manages the finances. It's very harmonious!
Does vintage play a role in your art or life? If so, how?
Vintage definitely plays a role in my creative life! I'm so often inspired by vintage florals. I go nuts for a super feminine fabric or wallpaper! Vintage advertising cards are a great source of inspiration as well. They're just so charming!
What is important for your customer to know about your work?
It's important to me that customers know how important *they* are. I include a personal touch with each order; be it a handwritten thank you note or a stamped card. I fill each order from start to finish, sculpt to ship. Shopping with OED is an interaction, not a transaction!
Thank you so much to Scarlett and her hubby for taking the time to let us get to know more about them and their artwork. We truly appreciate handmade and independent designers here at Vintage Indie! Be sure to head over to One Eyed Dog to see more of their work.

J'adore is the only way to say how I feel about this home school room.
This room comes from that of the talented photographer and artist Mandy Lynne.

If you haven't heard, apparently wallpaper has made its way back into main stream design and style. The latest from Graham & Brown are these designs by Hemingway Design. Classic lines and patterns tout vintage ranging from the 1930s to the 1970s.
If these vintage styles aren't your flavor, Graham & Brown houses Damask, and Amy Butler designs!

I've been looking locally all over for just the right desk for my oldest son. He needs a small desk for his room for test taking and quiet drawing etc. GoSeek offers a bunch of fantastic options, ya know in case you're in the market for one too.

As I've been puttering about in my garden, I'm trying to get comfortable with the surrounding curious insects. I'm not much of a bug person, but I know their importance to the garden.
I truly love these though, they come straight to you from Mr. Finch.
"Things have been back to insects lately in my studio.
I love them and return to them as a muse time and time again.
This time its Moths.
I love butterflies too but moths always have that darker edge that Im more drawn to.
Made from old tablecloths,samplers bedlinen,knapkins and anything else that has beautiful embroidery on.
Flaws and odd stitching are celebrated and are to expected."
All of these from vintage tablecloths, delightful.
