Blogger of the Week: Vintch

Hey guys! Today we have our guest post from this weeks Blog of the Week- Miss Courtney from her blog Vintch. It is such a beautiful blog filled with pretty pictures, fantastic fashion, and wonderful words. Definitely a blog I'm always reading. So enjoy her post (and even check out the guest post I did for her last week HERE!), and then be sure to hop on over to her blog and say hi!

hi guys! this is Courtney from vintch. i’m so, so honored and happy to be miss gentri lee’s blogger of the week. what a fabulous honor! here is a little about me:

i live with my high school sweetheart-turned-husband in a tiny, one-stoplight town in north carolina, one mile west of where I was raised. together, we are parents to pablo, our eight-year-old rescue bichon frise.

pablo is a fierce watchdog who is very intimidating and super scary. i dare say he's the baddest dog on the block. sometimes, he stays up all night protecting our little fortress:

we live in a little brick cottage from the 1930s, with floral linoleum floors. it's teeny. but it's got good oil heat and it's lived in. it's home.

i run a little etsy shop. it's where i showcase pretty vintage wardrobe essentials, like floral day dresses and pretty high-waisted skirts.

we’re a technical writer and plumber by day, but when 5:00 rolls around, robert and I love all things involving mexican food, little diners, modern family and bible study, not in that order. 


I believe:
in the power of the Father, Son and Spirit to turn a life around
that sometimes the only cure for the blues is a hot bath at two in the afternoon
in early evening suppers and long walks at dusk
in living near farmers, and going grocery shopping door-to-door
that my $2 vintage, thrift store jeans have held up way longer than my $75 anthropologie dress
in breakfast for dinner, cake for breakfast, and a juicy bacon cheeseburger every once in a while
that people are inherently good and worthy of your time, respect and attention

thank you again, sweet friend, for this honor. have a beautiful week everyone!

Courtney does have a way with words! She is oh, so loveable!

In an ideal world, I would love living near farmers and doing grocery shopping door-to-door, too!

Funny enough I took a hot bath around 1:00am last night so I wholeheartedly agree! I love that you live in a cute little vintage home and your business is selling vintage clothing. I mini wishful dream of mine. I'm going to hop over to your blog =)
