Another week has come and gone and along with it another fun Saturday of flea marketing!
I hit the vintage card jackpot again this week!



I also found these two vintage baby books. The one in it's original box is from 1939!



I found this set of vintage doilies still in their package from 1954! I believe there is at least 30 of them!




I never have much luck finding vintage wallpaper but I did manage to find this small roll of vintage rose contact paper!




I love these two patterns! I can find the Barbie patterns occasionally but never a Ken and Francie!



We also picked up the newest issue of Artful Blogging and Somerset Home!


I made this set of tags last weekend using images from a vintage Alice in Wonderland golden book.



With this set of tags I used pictures from a vintage baby book.

I love Mom's crochet coasters! I have a pretty set of two in pink and mint green.



We also stopped by the Quilt shop on our way to the flea markets and I fell in love with the new Halloween fabrics! Here are a few that I got.



We also couldn't resist this adorable vintage styled kitty fabric!


Happy Sunday, Lindsey and Twyla

Great stuff, as always. I had that Francie pattern growing up, and my mom made the greatest clothes from it. I still have the double-breasted jacket and hat ensemble ... oh, it's wonderful. That green Halloween fabric is great, too.

Great finds once again. I think I have a package of those same doilies from my mother-in-law. Sometimes we tease her for being such a packrat, but I think we really benefit from it.

Twyla, thank you so very much for the sweet comment you left on my blog. It came at a time when I could really use it and brought a tear to my eye. You are so sweet and so is Lindsey. I'm so happy to have met you both through the wonderful world of blogging.

Big hugs sent your way,
Kim

I still have my baby album.. in fact my mother had two of them for me... and I have them both... I should scan the covers and post them so you can see how adorable they are!

Now Hersheys must make kisses that say "I hate Tuesdays"... just for you!

Do you think perhaps that I could just move in with we two. You all always have too much fun and you seem to find the best stuff. My bags are packed and waiting.
