Hello everyone! You made it! We are so glad you could join us because today we get to show you the answers to our Designer Mystery Vintage Modern blog hop posts and make some people very happy!
First off… the big reveal! It was fun to see how everyone’s choices reflected their personality!
Bunny Hill Designs
Anne Sutton’s was a whimsical, festive Christmas sweater that comes out of her closet each winter.
Lisa Bongean’s was a pair of pink Nike Shox sneakers that she can’t live without. Betcha didn’t know she is a self-professed tennis shoe junkie!
Me and My Sister Designs
Barb and Mary’s choices were beautiful and cozy… a Pandora necklace from Mary’s husband and Barb’s once dark navy blue hoodie sweatshirt.
Aneela Hoey went with an autumn-colored tunic – you guys really went wild guessing on that one!
Alma Allen showed us her favorite scarf that goes with everything. Classic choice!
Everyone felt the funk with Kate Spain’s vintage modern pick – a pair of polyester wrap-around pants that belonged to her mother from the ‘60s. The pigtails are a tribute to her mom’s favorite hairstyle.
Sandy Gervais went all luxe on us – a fur coat she bought at a vintage shop more than thirty years ago for $30. She wears it with everything, from formalwear to jeans. Note her popping purple gloves – a true artist through and through.
Bonnie & Camille
Bonnie Olaveson gave us a glimpse of pearl perfection, a necklace and earring set that belonged to her mother. Her youngest daughter, Emily, recently wore them at her wedding and will probably inherit them! (A little tidbit: Emily designed a Cottonway pattern called “Emily’s Garden” way back when!)
Camille Roskelley of course went with her favorite dress! I had to laugh when I saw how well it goes with their Vintage Modern line. True red polka dot love.
Fig Tree Quilts
Joanna Figueroa settled on a beautiful beaded necklace with fresh yellows, greens and seed pearls. It makes appearances when she wants to dress up, like for Market!
Minick & Simpson
Laurie Simpson pulled out a traditional Navajo squash blossom necklace given to her by their Aunt Rita, who lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A true vintage pick.
Julie Comstock obviously loves this ‘50s dress she bought on Ebay! Look at her dazzling smile! It’s a flirty sleeveless pleated dress with a flower applique embellishment on the shoulder. Pair it with flats, and hello Julie Andrews!
Susan Kendrick contributed a pretty black polka dot dress of hers with a lace neckline. (How perfectly does it pair with Camille’s? Did they compare notes?)
Fat Quarter Shop
And finally, the prize grandissimo!! We posted three items for you to guess…
Jessica’s is a gold necklace with a lavender chalcedony oval pendant. Her grandma had good taste!
Debbie’s is a vintage cigar box with a handle!
And Stephanie’s is – yup, 3D glasses!
As for our grand prize… it is a $150 Gift Certificate to Fat Quarter Shop! And not only that, but we decided to have THREE grand prize winners as well… congratulations!!
Stephanie will be contacting each winner about their prize.
