Vintage finds




Hello Friends, I found a fun and unique apron recently hanging in an Antique store.
A Snow White apron! It's beautifully embroidered and so cute!!!




I love the colors! Aren't the little dwarfs sweet?


The pocket is so neat! I have never seen an apron quite like it!


As most of you know I have an addiction to vintage cards. So I was thrilled to find this vintage card box!!

These cards are so cute!!! This is the top of the box.

Here is the inside cover.


The inside.

I love, love, love this little mermaid card and wish so badly that I could scan the image or that it had been on the outside of the box so that I could see it more!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend, Lindsey and Twyla

I've never seen such a sweet apron!
Seeing your pretty card box reminded me of my great aunt Nell who gave us a handmade gift every Christmas. One year she gave us the cutest basket made of old Christmas cards and it looked like they were crocheted together. We used it for many years to hold our yearly Christmas cards we received. We put it up every year and I don't know what happened to it. Guess it wore out finally.

Good grief, I can hardly breathe, or sneeze...to see Happy, and Doc and Bashful on a apron...Oh , I wish I had a million dollars to offer you to buy it. I SO LOVE THAT! And the boxes...oh, I'm telling you, you are my kind of friend. I thank God literally for finding you. Good night from the Man and the Moon and Me...

That box is adorable - I have never seen one like it - now then it is a given that the mermaid picture is just off the metre on cuteness - so you have to just have to find a way of copying it........

The apron is absolutely adorable. The card box has definitely found a good home. It looks like the perfect spot to store your vintage cards.

What fun! :)

I especially loved the apron. I am so glad The Apron has made a comeback...although..this wonderful example is to great to get tomato sauce on it! :D

Thanks so much for sharing your treasures with us.

Oh my gosh !! That apron is too sweet and the little card box too. I agree too bad that darling mermaid card wasn't outside the box, that alone is truly a vintage find.

What a cute apron! I love vintage cards as well. A few years ago, my husband purchased an old dime store card holder and display cabinet. It is wonderful, made of wood with big drawers. The drawers were full of vintage cards, which I still have. I just love the way they look compared to today's cards. Enjoyed visiting. blessings,Kathleen

Yoo-hoo! Oh I hope you didn't have a computer crash! :0

I love both the apron and the box. I was lucky at the antique store this weekend too. I found two dolls for the Wizard of Oz party!

Twyla, How on earth did they make those wonderful boxes? I know that you crochet, you need to get busy on this and teach us all. The mermaids are just too sweet for words. The apron, oh my goodness! What treasures! E

Hi there :) I added your store on my favorites on ETSY! I was wondering if you would mind adding me to yours :)

What pretty finds Twyla...I remember those hand made boxes made from cards. I had one years ago that I used to keep handkerchiefs in...I wonder whatever happened to it??

Missed your blogging while I was away.
