How often do you create something from scratch?
It’s such a special part of living a modern vintage life.
Sewing your own clothes, knitting something from an old pattern, making your own hats and hair flowers.
These are all things Lauren De Marti, aka The Homemade Pinup does.
Stephanie Lanora is a modern vintage beauty.
But she also has an incredible brain for history.
She channels that into her love of the 1940’s, the fashion of the time and the war stories and histories that happened during those years.
Online she goes by the name Killer Kitsch and it’s quite fitting.
I found Lizzie through her incredible collection of vintage knitting patterns that she (thankfully) shares with the world.
But her vintage story is much bigger than that.

Houston we have a problem!
Oh no we don’t we have a vintage lover!
History and a love of old things usually go hand in hand – especially as we start looking for the story behind the items we collect.
So it’s not surprising that a woman with a love of space history also loves mid century modern.
This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the woman behind Vintage Space Amy Shira Teitel.
He’s the first Australian musician since the 1950’s to release a 78 gramophone record.
He embraced his love of vintage fashion when he was still in high school.
He’s got a collection of over 5 thousand 500 gramophone records.
And he even has his own orchestra!
He is Andrew Nolte.
