A beautiful quilt! I love looking at all the pieces of vintage fabric that was used to make it. It is in excellent condition too.
I can't imagine how much time it would have taken to make this, and wonder why anyone would part with it. But lucky for me that they did!
A cute little piggy, oink oink!
This owl is a lamp, and his body is made of glass - the light glows from within. Although it is not vintage, I just love it and he will go great in a Halloween display. Oooh, and his eyes glow red too!
And here is......drumroll please......ta da! My first vintage Pyrex piece!! I have seen so many awesome collections of Pyrex on your blogs, that I decided it was time to start one of my own. I can't believe that I didn't start sooner. I have been doing research on it and am trying to decide which colors and patterns I would like to own. Going by the markings on the bottom, this bowl appears to be an older one. Okay, so I am hereby an official member of the Pyrex Collectors Club! :)
A sweet little girl for the month of November.
And another for the month of October.
A pair of vintage Turkey salt and peppers, for the Thanksgiving collection. Gobble gobble!
Pink! Melmac bowls, I just love 'em!
A box of vintage Christmas ornaments. They are so pretty with with silver glitter on them.
And another box of old ornaments. I think I will attempt to make an ornament wreath next year, I have been inspired by the ones I have seen on blogs. But I think I would croak if it fell down and got broken!
A wacky little coconut purse from Hawaii. This can go in with the Tiki stuff, where it will fit in well.
A darling little egg shaped box with a bird on it. I don't think a thrifting trip would be complete if I didn't come home with a bird item!
A blue vintage bottle brush tree with a little glass garland on it. I didn't have a blue tree in my collection, but now I do!
A little rooster dish, not sure what it actually is used for, but it is cute anyway. His paint needs a bit of repair on his head.
More vintage multi-strand beads!
And more beaded cluster earrings to wear or craft with.
A mish-mash of little things - part of an old Japan doll's tea set, and some little mushroom birds for crafting.
I found a book that had copies of vintage pictures of cats dressed up....hehehe.....they are so cute! I'll show you a few of them....
They are riding on the "Catastrophic" roller coaster!
"Grand-paw" leads the parade on the Fourth of July..
For Sniffy's birthday, they went to the amusement park....(but should'nt that be "a-MEWS-ment park?) ha!
Kitties getting married! They are so cute!
This has nothing to do with vintage, but PeeWee wanted to show you his new bed (actually he just wanted to get his mug in this post, he is such a little ham!) I was in my over-priced hardware store, and surprisingly they had a sale on Animal Planet pet beds. It was such a deal, and it is soooooo comfortable. Wish I could fit in it! PeeWee hopped right in and is lovin' it!
Well, that's it for today - we are in the Polar Vortex again and I just don't want to go outside. I guess I will just putter around today, refill all the bird feeders again for the wild birds, and do more organizing in the craft studio. I think I will make Beef Stroganoff for dinner tonight...yummy. Happy thrifting!
