Vintage Finds

This morning we woke up to an unexpected snow storm. It's a nice fluffy snow...so the kids will have a wonderful time making snowman. Nothing like the one the East coast suffered this weekend.
This weekend I did venture out for some errands. On my way to the grocery store I stopped at an antique mall. I did find some pretties! Look at those vintage composition books! Thinking I might altered them and sell in the my Etsy shop. I found a pretty shabby apron with a pretty little pocket on the waist. Lots of vintage jewelry! I found some handmade tatted lace. Love this stuff when I can find it!

This week I will be offering images of vintage valentines from my collections. So check back each day for your new image to use with your crafts.

Wishing you a wonderful and safe Monday!

Hi Sharon....you have some really sweet vintage valentines and your gift tags are so pretty and creative. I'm so glad you are offering them for others to use. I would like to use the 'Lamb' one from January 18th post. I noticed your stamp was not on it, but wanted to be sure to ask. I've been collecting ones with 'Wooly' things for a knitting post. Thanks....sue

I love your kitty cat in your banner. We have had snow over the weekend, today, and suppose to get more. We haven't got anything like they were predicting. We are still in a winter storm watch until tomorrow.I don't want what the east coast has got. We had snow at Christmas that I thought was bad and it was still nothing like what they got. You take care.
