Hello, I'm Helena. I live and love on Long Island with my husband, JW, and my daughter, My Girl. We live in a very little old blue house that is bursting at the seams with all my vintage fabrics and decor, together with our critters - 3 cats, one dog, Gretel, and a giant pond full of fish, turtles and frogs.

My house is a work in progress, as am I.

I love to find ways to put a little vintage love into my home, kitchen, garden and even myself. Oh, and I love to make things.

I hope you’ll join me!


I have an Etsy shoppe… blondie blu… handcrafted goods perfect for livin' a vintage cool life.

blondie blu adores:

--when your heart beats in anticipation of finding a treasure when you pop into a thrift shop or yard sale;

--taking a piece of worn out furniture or sad, lonely old knick-knack, "dressing" it up a little and finding a new way to use it or display it, making you walk on air for days at a time with total satisfaction;

--finding new ways to "waste not";

--just about every piece of vintage fabric in existence - really;

--livin' a vintage cool life.
