Penticton Now ENews Feature

elizabeth o. vintage - Penticton Now Feature Local News

Shortly after moving to Penticton, BC from Vancouver, I received an email from the ENews website, Penticton Now, to see if I was interested in being featured in their In Focus section of News.  I wondered how they found me but realized I had posted a few photos of our new town on Instagram using some hashtags about Penticton and the Okanagan and realized that must have been it.  With all the positives...


EOV Handmade Collection, Decor Pillows

It's finally here! I've been working on this new collection for a while now and am so excited to finally share the EOV Handmade Collection, starting with Decor Pillows. All pillows are made from second hand button down shirts and sweaters.  Each is one of a kind.  There are some with pompoms, and super soft knits that are oh so cozy.  If you don't know it yet, I'm all about cozy.  The term "hygge" is the perfect description for my ideal lifestyle, the act...


Fall Mood Board

Fall is my second favourite season (my first being Christmas time).  It is filled with changing colours of the leaves and cozy layered sweaters.

This is something we've been thinking about for a while, and kept feeling like the timing wasn't quite ready, and then one day, we realized that it might never be, and that we'd rather take the jump now then regret it down the road.  

We've visited many places in the Okanagan over the years,...


Why I Shop Second Hand

elizabeth o. vintage - why I shop second hand

I've always loved shopping second hand.  Even as a kid, I'd be riding my bike around the neighbourhood and stop at a garage sale to do some curious digging.  I remember one time, I biked all the way back home to get 25 cents just so I go back to buy a milk glass.  I really wish I still had it! 

All this leads to why I'm doing what I'm doing here in this little corner of the internet. One day I was walking through my local Value...
