Weekly Vintage Finds. №3

I'm so happy and excited with my new vintage store on ETSY. the best part is when you receive a sale within couple hours after the item has been posted.

I'm very glad that vintage Dr. Martens found  new place right before the winter time. Those awesome boots were less then a week in my store and got SOLD :)

I also was happy with this Saddle over the shoulder bag. It was SOLD within 2 hours !

This  week was very lucky with the finds. Early I did make a post with COACH bag! And today I'm posting several new collages with vintage handbags and vintage jewelry.

We have got a couple designer handbags here 
Juicy Couture - green fabric and cow leather handbag 
Prada  logo - canvas unlabeled tote bag 
Dior - unlabeled bag. 

I'm still trying to research and identify Prada logo canvas bag   but I do love unique way of it. This is the view from the top. I like how the zipper designed. 

It's a pretty clean and nice inside canvas bag with PRADA logo
So let's see how long it will take  to sell this  Prada handbag.

Vintage COACH hand bag.

Weekend for COACH vintage bag. 

I was so happy when I found this adorable original COACH hand bag on today vintage hunt for my new sore Once Lost Boutique. 
Vintage COACH two ton bag
COACH purse for SALE 

After I came home I start learning how to  identify coach purses
I got a lot of information on e-bay and other sources. 

After studding a bit I learned those tips which will help me for feature hunts

- Serial number is a must (Bags from the late 1960's did not have any serial numbers. Coach added actual serial numbers that were unique to each bag in the 1970s into the 1980s. It was not until the 1990s, that Coach introduced the modern format of letters and numbers, with the last set of numbers after the dash, indicating the 'style' of the bag.
-  If your COACH bag is made in KOREA - it's a loud bell for the FAKE one 
-  Letter A in  in logo should be always with the SHARP top - no flat one.

Welcome to my Weekly Vintage Finds. This week was very excited. We found a couple cool shoes and a lovely vintage handbags.

Dan Post - awesome cowgirl boots

I also was happy to see one of my item in this Redskins treasury! Let's hope that this treasury will be hot as of the new trending topic about  possible new designs for the possibly renamed Washington Redskins. I'm not to big in gaming but let's see how this will ended up.

Weekly Vintage Finds. №1

Looks like I'm back in to Vintage. Couple weeks ago one of my friend invited me to her birthday party. Cool thing, but she decided to make it a party from 1989!
Yes, time for the vintage shopping.

I need to tell you that it was a lot of fun. Me and my family spend about 2 hours at Goodwill and I created my total outfit under 30 bucks. Cool!

Here is one photo from the dressing room. I didn't think I will do this - but I did.

The party was awesome and I remembered how couple years ago I was having a lot of fun with my Vintage Shop on Etsy. That's how I decided to start a new spin in this fun adventure. Another push for me was the terms of vintage. Now everything from 90-th it's already vintage.  Did you know that if it's 20 years old it's already vintage? Yes, I still remember what I was wearing in 1990 and now I think it will be more easy for me  and for my customers.

Not thinking too long we decided to open Once Lost Boutique shop on Etsy.
Every week I'll be posting what we found  and what is available for sale at our new vintage shop.

Our main focus will be on vintage shoes and clothes. Maybe some vintage bags and vintage sport hats.  So stop by and look what we found for you.

How to cook Swai Fish. cooking at home.

Welcome back to " Cooking at home with J.T. "

Last week Jason made an awesome fish for me and Lexi. It was a Swai fish. I never had it before and it was something like "Try it and fall in love". The other day I got Swai fish and asked him to make it again. This time I was filming so you can see each step in his cooking.

By the way, this time his original recipes was even better. Swain fish was gone in to time.

So stop talking - look at this video - then run to the store and try this out. I got Swain fish fillet we were cooking today at Albertson and it was something around $5.00. Not to bad.

Like IN STYLE magazine. New fashion skirts

My skirt business is growing. I'm enjoying every other new skirt I created and posted at Quick Fashion Skirts .

Now my 7 years old daughter is helping me choosing the right fabric. It must be with fashion trends and it must be cute that she can wear it.

Pink summer skirt 

From out last trip to the fabric store we found beautiful pastel color material and I knew it will be  a cool skirt.

To my surprise later the day I got IN STYLE magazine (I should tell you I'm not a big  magazine shopper but this one simple called my name). Me and Lexi were shocked when we saw  similar fabric to the one we got for our reversible skirts. 

Take a look and let me know what you think. We think it's way to cool. Now you can have fashion trend skirt for you little girl.  BUY Hawaiian print skirt

Miracle painting by Seattle artist.

This blog post is for my husband but I think it's more important for me.

Couple days ago I found that there is an interesting oily spots under one of his painting. In Russia we call this "Mirotochenie icon" It is very special it's like blessing.

I was making researches and I can confirm that it's not from condensation or smoking (in one of the forum I got this idea). Me and my husband are non smokers. 

We got a TARO reading for this phenomena and now I need spread the word about this miracle.

Here is one of the photo and if you'd like to see more please visit Art by J.Trent Sunderland

Cooking at home. PHO soup.

Welcome back to the "Cooking At Home With J.T."

Today he is going to share with you his recipe for PHO soup.

pho broth
PHO broth  

I started with one large pot and about 10 large chunks of beef bones (I tried to get about half knuckles/joints as they have more fat.), I the added 2 tablespoons of sea salt and filled the pot with water. I let it boil about 2 hours while scraping the foam off the top surface. 

I then broiled till just starting to get blackened: one large onion flower cut, 16 pieces of garlic and 4 big slices of ginger, and then added them to the pot.  (sorry no photos of this step) 

I put all the spices in a tied cloth bag; Cinnamon, anise, allspice fennel etc. and threw it in to boil another few hours. 

I turned the stove off to cool till the next day, first thing I scraped the heavy congealed fat from the surface of the broth. I then brought to a boil and removed the bones, spice bag , blackened items, etc and performed one last surface scrape. 

Now the broth is ready! I take 1/4 bowl of the cooked noodles and cover with 5-8 pieces of paper thin cut round-eye and ladle over the boiling broth slowly over all the meat to cook it as the bowl fills.

I like mine PHO noodle soup with Taiwan Basil, Cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, green onions, and bean sprouts, as for condiments use fish sauce, hoisin sauce, hot sauce/garlic pepper paste to taste.
