Vendor Vail Wednesdays: Burlap and Blue

Last week’s VVW {Vendor Vail Wednesday} got a great response!  Thanks again to The Tobacco Company for their feature last week and for providing ONE lucky winner with a $150 Anniversary Dinner Package to their restaurant!  Out of those many entries, I want to wish Leslie Williams a big congratulations for winning the drawing!  Please enjoy a much deserved night out at the Tobacco Company! {Drawing via, comment #17}

This week’s VVW is an Etsy shop I have come to adore- Burlap and Blue.  Linda Smith started her company and Etsy shop  which specializes in cake stands, dessert pedestals and home decor with a vintage-inspired feel a few years ago.  Etsy was a way to stay creative and connected while being at home as a stay at home mom to a sweet two-year old boy.  She also has a home and DIY blog {we love those here, don’t we?} at where she shares tutorials, shop updates and DIY projects around her home.

Linda’s style is a bit vintage and a bit shabby and she loves to “play” with her home decor.  Spray paint and her hot glue gun are two of her best friends.

In her Etsy shop, she sells vintage-inspired goods, including dessert pedestals, personalized coaster sets and other home decor.  It’s a mix of thrifted finds that are given a second life, as well as fun and unique gifts.

The very first thing in her shop that I ever saw, and fell in love with is this chalkboard cake/dessert stand:

Linda has made these in varying styles and with different text on the plate ranging from wedding dates to couples names and other sayings.  How cute!

And this cake stand…. I can’t get enough.  I have a thing for green {didn’t you know?….} and I love birds and leaves so this cake plate is just calling my name!

I could post all day about all the wonderful items in her shop that I would love to buy, I really could.  Her unique cake and cupcake stands are made from mostly upcycled materials making them one of a kind.  As a token of appreciation for all our Honeydew Events readers and followers, Linda is offering a 20% discount code to her shop taking place from Wednesday morning the 28th to Tuesday the 4th at midnight.  Just enter the code “honeydewevents” at checkout.
