FAQ, getting organized & is it really almost summer?



Bird necklace c/o Shlomit Ofir. I love it so much! ♥ 

Hey there… so I've been updating some things… my about page, new reader page and my (new) FAQ page. so much to do! It's been fun starting the process of catching up today. Just curious if you have any questions for my FAQ page or reader requests for summertime blog posts. I'd love to hear your suggestions!

I'll be back soon to share some summer goals. YAY! elsie

  • Can you share more about why you love Springfield? Where you enjoy traveling to and if you always knew you’d stay there versus venturing off somewhere new to live…

  • I think I mentioned this on twitter but I think it would be fun if you do a new blogger feature where you post about new blogs you’ve discovered! I find I’m reading the same big, high traffic blogs as a lot of people and I know there are some hidden gems out there!

    I’d loooove to do a guest post of some sort for you as well <3

  • Can’t wait to see your summer goals! 🙂 Makes me want to write some up…I’d love to see photography tips & how-to’s and some of your styling inspiration…

  • I would really like to see some makeup and hair tutorials! I loved you hair in the pics you posted of the bachelorette party and in the “3 Ways to Wear It- Record Store Jumper” (I don’t exactly remember if that is the correct name).

    Also, I really love all your DIY tutorials. Post more ! 🙂

  • I would love to see more hair tutorials and a little home or studio tour. And I think it would be fun to read a post about your favorite summer things to do around Springfield. :]

  • I’d love to see a home tour post! Also, are you going to be designing any more paper or fabric lines? (Please say yes….!)

  • I have yet to find the best way to contact you. That would be helpful.

  • Do you think you could do a post about blog design? 🙂 Your blog looks fantastic and I have no idea how to get started other than signing up to a free blogging website and using their templates. xx

  • Ditto about that necklace, soooo cute!

    I’m feeling very inspired latlely, baby # 3 just turned 1 and I’m finally getting some me-time again! I would love to see some crafty or photography posts.

    And I would love to see a home tour! 🙂

  • I love the text and design elements you add to your photos. It would be fun to learn what fonts are your favorites for adding a little bling to your photos and blog. 🙂

  • Your about page is the most extensive and loveliest About page I’ve ever seen. I really like it. I also like the new readers page. I remember when I first discovered your blog, I loved perusing through each section. I learned so much about you just by reading them. 😀

  • Hi
    I was wondering if you don’t mind me asking if your hair color is natural? I love it! And always wanted it that color!

  • I’m so glad you’re back Elsie! I missed reading your daily posts!

    A little question I have wondered is thus: Why did you decide to stay/set up shop in Springfield, Missouri? Were you ever tempted to move to a big city, such as New York? What are the advantages to creating a business like Red Velvet Vintage, in a smaller city?

    Have a great rest of your weekend!


  • HOW DO I LOVE THAT NECKLACE! It reminds me of my tattoo. And also my blog quote: life on the wing.

    I will be hosting a Creativity Guest Post Mini Series beginning June 1st – please come check it out! It’ll cover everything from art to writing to sewing to DIY to etsy-ing!

  • Hi Elsie — how about a couple of tips on managing employees, taking time off work but still having your businesses/shop open, etc.

    I’m a fellow business owner myself (online, no brick & mortar) and would love to hear about your experience.


  • Gorgeous necklace & gorgeous shoes. I agree with the comments above–photography posts are always welcome, both tips and just sharing your latest shots, and I would love a thrifting tips post. I’m always curious, do you find the *perect* item in the shop or do you bring it home and, say, shorten the hem or add a belt?
    Your FAQ and About Me pages are so detailed, it’s a joy to read.

  • Are you having SO much fun calling yourself ‘Elsie Larson’?? I know that was my favorite thing to do- well actually, it’s been almost 2 years, and I still love calling myself ‘Mrs. Michie’! 🙂

  • Yay! Summer is a great time to get organized and do things! I always do summer cleaning, rather than spring cleaning. So much easier somehow. 😀 Looking forward to A Beautiful Summer! 😀

  • Elsie! <3 I have recently been "re-doing" my room! A little makeover shall
    We say?:) I have had a lot of trouble scoping out an extravagant piece to put in substitute for a head board! A miniature version of the back drop from your wedding would be interesting! I wanted kind of like vintage moose antlers.. But that is something that would be way out of my price range. Then I thought of assorting some branches ( from our back yard woods ) and maybe creating my own set of deer anters! Any suggestions on a cute DIY or something? In saying all this! You should do a piece about tips in furnishing a small space.. Or something along those lines. Making a room look completed, but not cluttered with too much! How to contrast & combine colors!:) thanks!
