Hello my blog friends!!!


What a wet Labor Day weekend we are having here in Missouri. Earlier in the week when it was sunny Mom and I went to a couple of flea markets!



One of my favorite finds was this old high chair. I have been admiring it for awhile and when we went the other day it was half off so I knew then it was coming home with me! Here is a close up of the decal on the front.



Isn't it sweet?! I love the little cottage!



I also found an old ironing board. It is white with black legs. It has this old label on the top which I think is super cool!



I rarely ever find old Tally cards but that day I found several along with a couple old cards and a postcard.




I found an old stationary box, too. Jolly Notes! I hope every note wrote with this stationary was jolly!





I've heard of Dennison crepe paper from other blogs but I have never found any until this week. I love the packaging! I think it looks very Art Nouveau. I wish I knew what year this was from?

Here are a few more Tally cards I found.






I hope your enjoying your Labor day weekend!


Lindsey and Twyla

Oh~lalala! Good stuff. I love the high chair. I remember seeing those when I was younger with the cute picture on them. I have also seen cribs and dressers with sweet painted pictures. I hope to get to some garage sales this weekend. I remember Dennison crepe paper also. Oops...I sure am showing my age tonight. Have a nice fun weekend. Dogwood

Goodness, I am so behind on commenting!I feel a little better today so I will try to catch up a little.Lindsey, your doll suitcases are wonderful! I have doll trunks, but I have never seen the suitcases with sweet pictures on the front. Love your baby planter - I collect those myself. I try to look for unusual ones, not your average block or bootie, although I love those and have some of them,too. Anything baby has always attracted me. I am pretty sure my baby highchair looked very similar to yours. I don't know what happened to it, but I remember a decal.Your Barbies are interesting. I was in WM last week and noticed they are putting out Christmas toys. There was a Christmas Barbie and Kelly. It was not very expensive. Wish I could have that pretty Barbie bedroom, at least those pretty round pillows. Don't you know my husband would let me have that? Twyla-I LOVE your birdcage & the beautiful vignette you put together in a jar!Love, Sarita

I ran put of room - just wanted to mention that I love Irmi, too. In 1974, when I was expecting our first baby, I bought a Humpty Humpty lightplate cover. Still have it - have used it for all our children and it is in my dollroom now. I have also acquired ovr the years 3 Irmi mobiles.I just can't believe that Twyla and you love so many of the same things I do!
Have a good holiday! Sarita

I want a high chair toooo! ☺ Are you going to do anything special with yours?

I guess I've never seen an old ironing board. The "housewifey" illustration is cool.

I'll have to Google "tally card". I've never heard of it.

Glad you an mom got to go treasure hunting! ♥

Holly said...

Me again! Forgot to mention that those jolly notes are just too cute! ☺

Looks like you're displaying your cards in a special way, too. I'm still trying to find a cute way to display mine. ♥

The highchair is wonderful! I know you are thrilled to find it! My dolls would have to take turns! Enjoy your weekend!

Shelley said...

So cute! I love old high chairs. I should show you a pic of one I got at an estate sale... it is darling! And super old...

You two must have so much fun together! You both are very lucky - what a good mom and good daughter! :)

Very sweet high chair as well as the vintage papers :) I think it's great that you and your Mom love to go antique shopping together :)
Take care.

What fabulous finds! I especially love the little cottage graphic on the high chair and the greeting cards (as you know) are always my favorites! What fun! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful holiday!

How nice to see some of the wonderful treasures from your outings. My favorite is the Jolly Notes box ~ so Whimsical 'n Cheerful looking!
It's been a quiet weekend around the house... but totally insane over at the Beach. It's the "Last Hoorah" weekend of "The Season"... best for us "Local Folks" to just stay away...
Hope the rest of the Holiday is pleasant for both of you...
~hugs~

Heidi Ann said...

Fabulous stuff - as usual!! I am always envious of your great finds. We have the old wooden highchair from when my husband and his brother were babies. But it's not quite as cute as yours!
