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 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!

A peek into our home...

I meant to post photos of our home earlier...We kept our Christmas decorating just to the kitchen area this year. We wanted something simple and stress free.
Here is a peek at my Santa collection. I only displayed about a dozen of my Santas this year.

Wishing you all the cheer for the Christmas season and all the best for the New Year!

Holiday Swaps

I participated in a couple of holiday swaps. It was fun gathering the vintage and new goodies for both of my swap partners.
My swap partner ~ A Swap for All Seasons Cabinet Card Swap was Joyce at Scrap for Joy. Joyce sent me this wonderful group of goodies. This swap you gave an altered cabinet card. Look at her cabinet card she sent me. Just beautiful! She also sent some wonderful new and vintage items for my art and some chocolate. Thank you so much Joyce!

My second swap partner was Deb at Garage Sale Gal. Her vintage goodies are just the vintage Santa tea towel! Deb made the cutest altered baby shoe! . Just take a look at this adorable shoe! She also sent me some wonderful chocolates! Thank you so much Deb!

Thank you ladies for such a fun time!

Hope everyone is having a great week!
