Featuring Toe Tappin' Swing

We are so excited to have Robin and Matt of Toe Tappin' Swing as part of our collective. These two are immensely talented and passionate about vintage. Here they are performing a routine that they choreographed to a classic song by Fats Waller. The routine is primarily solo jazz and lindy hop dancing, and features many classic dance moves of the 1930s & 1940s. Prepare to be wowed!

Happy Valentine's Day!

A few members of our collective teamed up on a Valentine's shoot. See the full story here.

As an added bonus, the shoot was featured on Luxe by Calgary Bride this morning.

Our new look

Welcome to A Spoonful of Vintage. How do you like our new look? I'll admit it, the design of the original blog was put together in a bit of a hapharzard way as we rushed to get things up and running. Since then, we spent a lot of time thinking about the "face" of A Spoonful of Vintage and how we want to represent ourselves. When you hear the words "vintage wedding" what do you think of? It means different things to different people doesn't it? While it could mean simple, rustic or DIY, some of the most elegant affairs find their roots in classic design and fashion. Here's a few examples from around the web. At A Spoonful of Vintage, we hope to inspire you with "new" ways to look at vintage.

The day after we decided on our "look", I stumbled across this breathtaking inspiration board on one of my favourite wedding blogs, Snippet & Ink. A little wink of affirmation perhaps?

See the original Snippet & Ink post here.

Kudos to Jen Airhart for our fabulous logo design.

Crushin' on Justin!!

How could you not love his old school performance at the Grammy's on Sunday? We loved the sepia tone added to the television broadcast.

Happy First Anniversary!

Congratulations to our friends at A Vintage Affair on their first anniversary in their Beltline location. They held a celebratory bash to mark the event with sweets, music and of course, loads of vintage fashion. Here's a few photos from the evening. Be sure to check them out at 638 - 11th Avenue SW, Calgary.
