As Lindsey told you in her last post, we had a wonderfully fun Saturday. We have exhausted all the flea markets/antique malls in our area so we decided to branch out and get adventurous.

I ask Lindsey that morning what she most hoped to find and she said vintage cards. She was not disappointed. When she finds ones that she knows appeals to me she is generous and shares them with me.

When she found this one she said, ‘Here’s one for you.’

Isn’t it precious with the mushrooms?

I was lucky enough to receive this one also. I thought they matched so pretty.

Most of the cards were owned by a lady named Hattie. We were able to learn much about her from her cards. She had written on the back of each card what gift was given to her by the person who gave her the card. For instance it would say, slip and pin or sometimes a dollar amount, usually $3.00. We discovered that she broke her foot once and had many get well cards. Also that she reached her 80th birthday because we had several of those cards. We felt like we'd made a new friend.

I found Lindsey this old embroidery pattern and gave it to Lindsey for Easter. I thought I would share one of the graphics with you in case you’d like to copy it and embroider it for yourself.

I started embroidering as a young girl and love that sort of thing. As I get older, I find that is harder to do some of these crafts. I would love to do this one, a knitting poodle is a hard one for me to pass up.

Of course the sweetest part of our day was just the time we spent together. It was a blast. In all we found seven unique shops.

This planter is one I already had. I didn't get a new one this weekend, but this one is so sweet I wanted to show it to you.

I hope all of you have a wonderful week! It's been a pleasure to spend a little time with you and would love to hear from you. Twyla

Oh my goodness...I'm wearing that dress on the pattern in your last post (in a retro photo of me and my brother) which I put in my post yesterday. How ironic is that? : )

Sweet cards, Twyla! ♥ The first one is my favorite. I'm so glad Hattie saved them for you. ☺

I love the polka dots on the lamb's cart- they match your "base board"! Those are sooo cute.

Bravo for you two for branching out to find new stores! I can just see y'all driving down the road. ☺ I certainly wonder at times how different my life would be if I had a daughter...

Have a happy Tuesday! ♥

Hi Twyla... I have to tell you that I just gasped when I saw the Precious Angel 'n Mushroom card with the lil Bunny! It's just too Cute!! And you know I Love Vintage Planters and think the one you shared today is simply Adorable ♥

I just put up my Tuesday Tid-Bits post, and you'll get a chuckle from this... I also posted an Embroidery pattern today, of a Puppy 'n Kitty! How funny that we both did that today! I really like your knitting Poodle, and I do believe that I have all of the patterns for that DOW set! I'll have to look and let you know... If you get a chance to "do" your poodle, I'd love to see the end result...

So glad that you 'n Lindsey had a good time together... I always enjoy hearing about the fun adventures y'all have! Hope you have a beautiful day...
God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

You two always find the sweetest things. When you talked about Hattie's cards you made me think..I save all of mine..will they be in a thrift shop some day? That's weird to think about.


Morning Twyla !!!
Yes...the angle card with mushroom is sweet! That is so cool that Lindsey loves to treasusre hunt with you!! Kailee loves to go to garage sales with me and pretty soon that's what we'll be doing.
The poodle knitting is sweet and hope to see it when you finish it.
Happy Tuesday..

The cards are adorable and how sweet to learn so much about a lady named Hattie who kept such good track of the gifts she received.

The planter with the polka dots is sweet and looks so cute on the polka dot fabric.

What a sweet card and what a sweet daughter to share it with you. You guys seem to really enjoy each other's company. :)

You both find so many nice things, and I love that you share them with us! The lamb and the cart is way too cute and the cards are so special, just because you know where they came from, THAT makes it way cool in it's self...Hugs to you both, Jennifer

Dawn said...

They are so very precious. Doesn't that just tug at your heart when you read of such delicate histories of women before us?

Thanks for sharing.

What a lovely way to spend time with your daughter, and you have so much in common! My younger daughter Courtney loves to wander around shops, and check out craft shows and antiques...my older daughter Ali is just interesting in shopping for clothes!

Michele said...

Awww Twyla, I love those cards. You have such a wonderful daughter...Lindsey and Cassie sound so similar...they really care about their momma's!

Glad you found some new places to thrift...wish we got some new ones here...same ole stuff!

Those cards are so sweet, as is the embroidery pattern and the baby planter. I had a family friend when I was growing up - I called her "Aunt" Addie out of respect. She embroidered all year long and all her family and friends got pillowcases,cuptowels, as we used to call them, or potholders for Christmas. She used unbleached muslin. I still have some of her work.That is neat about the lady who owned the cards.
Blessings, Sarita

You two make a great shopping pair! Love all of your finds. The vintage cards are precious. My mother-in-love's name is Hattie. She always hated the name and went by Helen, but I think it's such a sweet name.

Patty said...

Those cards and planter are sooo cute. You guys always find the best stuff. Thanks for sharing the embroidery pattern! (I have Saturday's design saved too -- the Poodle in the bathtub.) If you don't want to stitch it, Twyla, I'll do it for you. Ler me know.
