Saturday Shopping



Another fun Saturday of flea market's have come and gone again, but we didn't leave empty handed!


I found lots of vintage cards and patterns. My favorite!




I so want to make these "Two Little Kittens on Two Little Mittens"! How cute are these. Even the old guy that checked me out kept looking at them!



We're starting to see a lot Christmas stuff at the flea market's now. I have started to collect the retro styled Christmas decor. The kind from the fifties and sixties.




These are salt & pepper shakers. I would love to start a salt & pepper collection but I think I have reached my limit on collections for now.


Baby planters have been our newest collection that has grown very quickly.

I adore this version of Cinderella. The illustrations are breath taking. Unfortunately some kid took a pencil to a few of the pictures.

Okay, this will be the last post before we announce the winner of our 100th post giveaway! So make sure to leave a comment to get entered in! I thought I would list some of the goodies that the lucky winner will receive!

fat quarters, vintage postcards, vintage cards, vintage seam binding and ribbon, a vintage wooden spool of ribbon, a vintage embroidered runner, a pair of lucious house shoes, a vintage apron, vintage fabric, a wall hanging and more!



Good luck to all who enter!

Happy Labor Day Weekend,Lindsey and Twyla

The pictures are beautiful. They remind me of my grandmother, whom I loved very much. She left a lot of cards just like those, and I treasure them. Also love the vintage barbies. It brings back the best of childhood.
