Twyla on Tuesday

Hello Ladies!
It is hard to believe another Tuesday has rolled around.  Does it seem like time is flying
or is it just me?!
This week I wanted to share with you some of my latest antique and flea market finds.
This wall pocket is just so adorable!

As many of you know I collect the motto prints and the theme of many of these are 'Mother'. 
This is a very small one that is made as though it were a locket.  On the back it said, 'From Jimmie,
Mother's Day 1926.'

I fell in love with the colors of this one, pink, blue and silver.

A close-up of the graphic.

I love these swing frames but many times they are just empty frames.  This one had a
beautiful print inside.

I have a passion for collecting old prints.  I think it started with the motto prints and now I just love
beautiful old prints in antique frames.  This is a small grouping that I have on one wall in our living room.

Thank you for spending some time with me today!
I hope that you all have a lovely day!

Hi Twyla:
They really are lovely. Thanks for sharing the images. Hope you have a great day!

Hi Twyla.
Love the Motto Prints! They are both fabulous but the one with the picture of the mother and children . . . that is just too sweet.
Question! What is a wall pocket? You mention there is one in the first picture . . . but I must be blind. I guess that might be because I'm not sure what one looks like.I just love looking through your blog. ALways a new idea or something new to learn. Thank you for that!
Have a great day! Karen

You always find such cute things and have displayed them so nicely. I really like the wall pocket and that locket sized motto print is simply adorable and the message from Jimmy in 1926 makes it even more special.

Wonderful finds, Twyla! Those Mother prints are such great additions to your collection, and I just love that flower cart wall pocket!

Heidi Ann said...

Oh, my, Twyla - you seem to find the most wonderful things!! That framed Mother print is SO beautiful!! I'd have fallen in love with it myself.
Thank you for sharing your lovely finds with us - I always enjoy seeing them!

Julie said...

These are beautiful, Twyla! I love the mottos...gorgeous!

Thanks, as always, for all you share! Hope you both have a lovely day!

Hi Twyla, I am catching up so as not to miss a thing. I thoroughly enjoyed Lindsey's Barbie post and can imagine her having a room with shelves filled to the brim with her collection. Her tag was amazing! When the paper comes to my town, I will be sure and give it a try. I always enjoy your Mother's prints posts and now always keep an eye out for them when I am out and about - Victorian postcards as well. I just don't come across them her in Ohio. Thank you for the pink Scottie card! A real treat! I hope spring finds you walking to your friend's house again. I am trying to get enough steps together to make it to the edge of my neighborhood! Tuesdays are my visiting days because of you! I wouldn't miss one! Elizabeth

I love seeing what other people collect, although next time I see something similar I, too, will think maybe I NEED to bring it home.

Good morning, Twyla! that wallpocket *is* adorable!

Here I am in a motel 6 in Wall SD and I'm typing on my lap top! Seems like we've been on the road forever but this is only the 6th day. :) We hope to be in Idaho by tomorrow night. ♥
