Vintage Finds

As promised, here are a few photos of some of my vintage finds for the past few weeks.
This is a group of vintage lace, lace baby cap, and pink baby shirt. I am always looking for vintage lace. I was excited to find a booth with a basket of vintage lace bundles...so I purchased almost all of them.


I am finding my taste in theme changing lately. I really like the bold colors of the 40s and 50s.
This is a couple of vintage kitchen towels and opalescent hand painted plates.

This photo displays some of the vintage greeting cards I purchased from eBay and at the antique mall this past weekend. I am going to use these images for my hand made gift tags and cards. Please check my Etsy shop for my new Birthday and Valentine's Day handmade gift tags. I hope everyone enjoyed the photos.
Dear Followers, Please don't forget to check back this weekend for my Birthday blog give away!

Oh' My Goodness Sharon. What a treasure trove of finds! I love the precious baby items, so sweet and pretty. I'm like you starting to really like the bold 30's & 50's colors. I always think of them as kitchen colors for some reason. Those valentines or so bold and pretty. Thanks for sharing.
Happy New Year & Hugs...Tracy :)

Hi Sharon...your banner and pictures are so fun! I love the vintage valentines and I'm so into the 40's and 50's stuff, too. Great finds at the antique mall and eBay. You might like to see the MapPuzzle I found a while back at the AntiqueBarn in San Angelo, TX. It's on my post for today. Come on over and take a trip to Buffalo Gap, Texas. I used the MapPuzzle....Sue
