Antique Finds

Hello friends!
Today we will begin showing you what we
bought at the antique mall!
This set of sweet vintage crochet potholders caught
Lindsey's eye!
The adorable little card was a squeel thrill!

\


Lindsey is also always on the lookout for vintage children's books.
She likes to scan the images and use them in her crafting.



Such sweet illustrations!



I have such a weakness for motto prints.  I was thrilled
to find two more to add to my collection.





These were both in beautiful condition and are going
to look lovely displayed together.




We'll share more tomorrow!
Have a fun day!
Twyla and Lindsey

Hello there, two crazy crafters! :) I love these antique finds- especially the sweet kids book- now that i have a little girl I am even more in love with anything antique that is for wee ones. So precious!

I was stopping by to let you know that I am having a giveaway to celebrate my return to blogging and say thank you to my followers (of which you are one!) for faithfully keeping me in their blog roll this past year and a half that I was absent from blogging (I had a baby and was learning to be a new mamma!). To celebrate I am giving away a season of The Waltons on DVD. If you're interested, all you have to do is head over to my blog and enter.

It's great to be back in bloggyland, looking forward to more good stuff for you ladies!

Awesome finds! I also collect vintage children's books and greeting cards to scan and use in my crafting! It makes vintage hunting even more fun to visualize what will be created in future!
Hope you have a great day and fabulous week!
Love and HUGE HUGS!

OMGoodness! I have just "toured" your favorite antique booth. I am so surprised it doesn't have T@L stamped on every item. What a wonderful display. Imagine owning all of those things at one time! Swoon! Have a lovely week ahead Twyla. In my thoughts, Elizabeth

It was fun to go to the antique store with you. I would have loved those booths too. My heart is content and happy in child wonder. May we never ever grow up.

I am very proud to say that I personally bought your little pink/blue house tags Lindsey and turned them into table tents in the restaurant. I'll show them soon!

Hope you two are as happy as two crazy crafters can be!

Today we had our best Monday ever! Were on our way!
