What are you doing New Years Eve?

We're sure that most of you have already seen this video circling the web, but we couldn't pass up showing those of you who haven't seen it! SO CUTE! We know that Zooey has a magical voice, but he has the cutest voice ever!
We hope you all have a safe and happy New Years Eve! 
We are keeping it pretty low key this year with smaller house parties, but what are you guys up to?
Talk to you next year!

Let's fondue it!

We love having fondue parties, so we thought we would put together a list of vintage necessities to host your own!
Click on the images to shop for that item!

We're suckers for the obvious cheese fondue, or chocolate, but we like the idea of creating new recipes!
We can't wait to try this pesto fondue recipe!
Another personal favorite recipe is pizza fondue!
Happy fun-due-ing lovelies!

With 2012 just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to put together a little list of what is needed to look and feel great at your new year's parties this year! I don't know about you guys, but we are getting pretty excited! Pink champagne, anyone?

Merry Christmas!

We just wanted to send warm holiday greetings from our homes to yours! We are taking the day off to spend time with our families and eat lots of delicious home-cooking! This is one of our favorite times of year so we just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy every minute of it! We hope you get a chance to do this same! There is something so serene and magical about this time of year, so be sure to slow down and take it all in!

We hope you all get everything you wished for this holiday season!
Merry Christmas & happy holidays friends!

Lots of love,
Stefanie & Erin

P.S. For all of you local readers, we will be open on Boxing Day, so be sure to come by and say hello!

We heart Instagram.

As you all know, we are huge fans of the iPhone app Instagram! We are totally addicted to taking little snapshots of our homes and daily lives. So when we were asked by one of the community managers over at Instagram if we would be interested in doing an interview for the Instagram blog we were beyond flattered! He was interested in hearing more about our mobile shop so we shared our story with him through some of our favorite Instagram photos!  The article just got published today and if you are interested you can read it here! 

What a lovely way to start off our Christmas Eve! 

Hope you're having a relaxing holiday pretty friends!

2012 Sponsorship Information.

It's hard to believe that it was only last year at this time that we started our blog, Oh So Lovely. 2011 has been such an amazing year for us - we started our blog, we renovated our trailer, we went to our first events with Olive, we quit our day jobs to pursue our dreams, we moved into Vintage Glory to do the womenswear, and finally we opened our very own vintage boutique Rhymes With Orange! Whew! If you would have told us at the beginning of the year that all of this would happen, we would've thought you were crazy! It has definitely been a learning experience and there were a few challenges to overcome, but all-in-all, 2011 has been one of the best years of our lives!
On that note, we can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us! We are really excited to focus on our blog and introduce some new ideas and features! You can expect more D.I.Y.'s, more peeks into our shop life and what it's like to own a vintage boutique, more posts about our travels and adventures with Olive, and of course many more posts about vintage fashion, furniture, and lifestyle.

If this is something that interests you and you feel like your blog/shop/website would be a good fit for Oh So Lovely, take a peek at our revised sponsorship rates for the new year! If you have any more questions about anything feel free to email us anytime at

We look forward to working with you! Happy holidays lovelies!

Christmas in the Thiessen home!

 Like Stef, one of my favorite parts of preparing for Christmas is setting up my aluminum tree! As you can see it's starting to look a little haggard due to my cat who loves to rip pieces off the bottom branches and it's turning into a Charlie Brown tree, but I love it nonetheless! This is in my bedroom and I love my new (to me) fireplace! 
I have a total of four fireplaces in my home (excessive, I know) two of which are real but no longer work  and I love decorating the mantels at this time of year!

This Christmas I plan on catching up on much needed sleep. I also can't wait to give out presents!

My amazing cousin Sara just had this little guy, baby Jack, and I'm thinking of running away with him at our gathering on Christmas Eve! He gives me big time baby fever...

I can't wait to get all dolled up for parties in my new dresses!

Both my husband and I have fairly decent sized families which means a lot of gatherings which I look forward to all year! My little sister is out from Montreal for two weeks which means my whole family is home and I can't wait to eat, drink and relax with them! 

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday lovelies!

An Atomic Christmas at the Hieberts!

With Christmas just around the corner, we thought we should share a few peeks into our homes and what our life has been looking like during this holiday season! Today is a little peek into some of the festive details in my house, and tomorrow Erin will share hers!

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is getting to set up my aluminum tree! I love decorating it with my collection of vintage turquoise and peach ornaments and watching it sparkle!  If I have any extra ornaments left over, I like to put them in vases or planters to use as centerpieces for my tables (beside a few ceramic deer figurines, of course!) I also have fun finding a cute retro-inspired wrapping paper to make all my presents look extra pretty under the tree!

Festive music is a must over the holiday season, and lately the new She & Him album has been on high rotation on our record player... We just can't get enough!
We have already hosted a number of Christmas parties at our place and I always have so much fun cooking new recipes, setting the table with my favorite atomic dishes and getting all dressed up in my favorite party dresses! There's always lots of delicious food, plenty of good wine, and tons of great company! My all-time favorite part about this season is getting to spend quality time with all of my family and loved ones. It just doesn't get any better than that!

Hope you're having a fantastic holiday season, friends!
Love, Stef

Christmas colors!

The holidays are just around the corner and we are beginning to feel particularly festive!
So in honor of that, this hues-day we are going a little bit traditonal on ya and featuring some good
ol' fashioned red & green!

The cutest coffee tin lid we ever did see!

Red & green never looked so fresh! This serving presentation is absolutely perfect.
Can I order one of each please?

Nothing says holiday spirit like a 50's red and green plaid dress!

Pretty festive button collection.

I need these vintage green utensils in my cupboards!

We bet it would be fun to bake Christmas cookies in this vintage green & red kitchen!

Green wrap + red locks = vintage beauty.

There is just something magical about this color combo, isn't there?
Happy Holidays lovelies!

Birthday girl!

Yay! Today is this very special lady's birthday! So everyone wish Erin a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Erin, I just want you to know how lucky I am to have such an amazing friend (and business partner!) like you in my life. I am always excited to come into work because we always have the greatest time together (even after weeks of working 14 hour days setting up a store we STILL aren't sick of each other! How many people can say that?!) Our friendship has really grown over the last year while working towards achieving all of our goals, and now I can't imagine what my life would be like without you being part of it. I don't mean to get all romantic on you guys, but I really
love this gal!

I hope you have the greatest day, Erin! Relax & pamper yourself - you deserve it! I can't wait to drink champagne, eat cheese, and celebrate with you!

Lots of love,
