I'm sorry it's been well over a week since I posted. Honestly I haven't been feeling well, and the Olympics have given me the ultimate excuse to stay on the couch! Aren't they so fun to watch? I don't want them to end! And can you believe the bodies??? Specifically the male swimmers? ha ha
Last weekend I chose one flea market to go to. These little aprons were $2 each, and so sweet!
I don't usually gravitate towards purple, but the pansies on this are darling!
And a traditional pastel one. I see this style in antique stores a lot. I've always kind of wanted one, but they are usually about $15.00.
Does anyone know about how old these are? When was this the rage? :)
I also bought one piece of Pyrex (the Promotional Dandelion Duet ), and a couple vintage children's books...to feed my addiction to both of those things. But I will spare showing you! What I WILL tell you is that all the things that I purchased that day, fit perfectly into this........
Renee of "My Vintage Mending" sent me this absolutely wonderful bag!
The cute little package arrived, looking like this. So I had to take a picture.
I still can't believe that I have one of Renee's hand sewn pieces!
And better yet, it was custom made just for me! OK, now I sound like I'm gloating!
But look at the little french knots on the "E"! I just feel like it was the most thoughtful and unexpected gift.
Thank You Renee! You are a great friend, and this is just perfect for my vintage treasure hunting! :)
OK, last week I stopped at a Garage Sale. There was a whole stack of embroidery patterns for .50 each.
So of course I had to get them. Even though my last attempt was a disaster, I'm going to try again. I think this will be a good thing to do while I'm recovering from my surgery. Oh, I didn't tell you guys! It is scheduled for the 23rd! So you better believe that I will be at every flea market I can find until then! LOL
This is really odd to me! Why is there a cute little blue bird flying into a sizzling hot skillet? LOL
I don't think the dog's warning is going to make it in time! Haaa!
Lastly, here are a couple things that were at the thrift store the other day. The spun heads will go into my Etsy Shop unless someone responds to this post and lets me know that they want them. They are $3.75.
This cute pink box holds pinking shears that once belonged to a "Delphine Schleif"! Delphine obviously took very good care of them, which is why I thought they would be a great addition to my vintage sewing supplies. I'm really good at buying the supplies, just not actually doing the sewing!
I hope you all are having a marvelous week! Please be sure to visit Renee for all sorts of MENDING goodness, and I'm also linking up for REDNESDAY at "Sue Loves Cherries"!
