Vintage finds and an introduction...

Hope your weekend was a great one!

As promised I am sharing some photos
of my vintage finds with you.

But first I want to introduce you to
our new addition ~~
introducing Ms. Gracie Hope! 
She is now 10 weeks, 4.6 lbs.
She isn't going to replace our Sadie...
but we just love our Bostons.  She
is already showing her personality. 
Though the house training is not
going too well...she doesn't like the
grass too much.  But I have been
blessed with patience!
It seems that I can only take
a good photo of her sleeping.

Now on to the my vintage finds.
Here are some of the vintage books I
found this summer.

Here are some of my
vintage Christmas finds.

I actually found six of these goodies.
Though some of them have lost a wing. 
I still think they will look great displayed.

Some of the vintage dresses I
found during the summer.

If you follow my blog, you know I can't resist
vintage postcards.  I found about another 250
of them this summer.  Some of these goodies
will be on my handmade Christmas
goodies this year.

More vintage cabinet cards...
I can't resist these lovelies either!

I found these this spring while at Orange Beach.
There is some rub marks on them.  I really don't
know much about these ladies.  So I guess I will
be doing some research.  I may list these
lovelies in the my Etsy shop.

More hankies for my collection!

It takes a lot of courage to show
your dreams to someone else.

So glad to see you posting again Sharon and thanks for the visit to my blog. Your Gracie Hope is a sweetie. Hope she helps heal your heart.
My,my you have some fantastic finds. I love old books. Well...I just love books. Love the little angels and I agree, you can display them so the missing wing doesn't show. You inspire me to go on a thrifting trip. You find the best stuff.
Have a great week playing with Gracie and enjoying your recent finds.

Hi Sharon, Miss Gracie is so cute and will be great comfort to you. You have found so many neat treasurers this summer. I don't know about you, but I could spend hours looking for that right vintage picture or design I want for my crafts. I hope all is well with you. Thank you for stopping by. We had a wonderful weekend with the family wedding on Saturday night. Getting to see family that I hadn't seen for quite some time. A very enjoyable time. Take care. Your Missouri Friend.
