So Lovely Feature

1 Oct

I was thrilled today when I got a message in my inbox that an item from The Atomic Squirrel had been featured on Oh So Lovely Vintage’s blog. Today’s post was about vintage bar ware! TONS of retro eye candy. If you’ve never checked out their site, you should. These vintage loving gal’s have good taste, clearly they picked one of my items.

The Atomic Squirrel

For those of you who know me in real life,you know that having my own business dealing in “the vintage lifestyle” has been a dream of mine for quite sometime. Today I am one very large step closer to that dream blooming in full. After about a year running my etsy shop under my handle as Candii Hearts, and that entire time knowing that for certain that was not the name I wanted my company to live with for the rest of my life. I wanted something expressly me, and there isn’t a soul who would argue the fact that if I were to be a small woodland creature, it would definitely be a squirrel.

So combining my love for the atomic era and my “spirit animal” was not nearly as simple as it should have been. There were lots of factors to consider and I imagine it is a stress similar to naming your child. I sat down this weekend and put together my logo,painted my store sign (see above), updated the store, sent out emails and am still taking care of some of the smaller, more tedious tasks.

Right now I’m working on stamps, labels and shirts (which will be for sale).
