Estate Sale Goodies!!

I had a great time at the estate sales today;
thought I would share my booty with you.

I just love these colorful vintage handkerchiefs:

Here are a tea towel, square tablecloth, and two gorgeous aprons! The pink one on the right is a sheer fabric, the colorful one on the left is so darn cute!!

Here's a closer look at the detail on the tablecloth,
it's on each of the four corners, sooo cute!

I just love this vanity mirrored tray,
and can never get enough vintage seam binding!

Check out the price on the seam tape--13 cents!
LOL, when's the last time you paid 13 cents for something?

Have a great weekend!!

Freebie Friday and Estate Sale Finds

Here's a sweet little family, including dear old Dad, for Father's Day.

Also wanted to share some of my booty from a lovely estate sale I went to this morning.

There were some old picture frames I deliberated too long on, and someone nabbed them. :( But I'm happy with my little haul. There's a felted wool Santa, lots of Shiny Brites (and lots of pinks!), some worn (but no stains) Christmas tea towels, lots of those honeycomb balls (they're silly but I like them!), and that pair of gloves has lots of tiny flowers individually sewn on...and I'm going to cut them all off, I can think of lots of things to do with them!

Have a great weekend!!

Freebie Friday on Wednesday!

I apologize for being late with last Friday's Freebie, but I was out of town to visit my dear son-in-law, who just had extensive jaw surgery. He is doing well, and my daughter is doing a terrific job nursing him, but complete recovery will take time and patience.

Even so, it was beautiful in Santa Barbara, with its cool, misty mornings and bright, sunny afternoons. Look at these beautiful bougainvilleas:

And here is your belated Freebie with her June roses:

I will post another image on Friday!

Secret Garden Book

I am participating in a "Secret Garden" Book Collaborative at Paper Whimsy. It's an "Itty Bitty Book", ATC size plus margin, with over 20 artists participating. People have been posting their artwork on the website, and it looks like it's going to be a good one!

Here's my page:

Ocean Beach

Yesterday was a gloriously beautiful sunny day, and I headed down to Ocean Beach, with its shell shops, antique malls, and cute little boutiques to see what I could find for my vintage vacation swap partner.

I don't even know who my partner is yet, but I have a theme in mind, and I'm the kind of girl who takes a theme and runs with it! Well, I do not know how Vignettes--a fabulous shoppe stocked (a truly gauche term for the beautiful vignettes created by the various designer/dealers) with all manner of things vintage, French, shabby, sparkly, flowery, bejewelled--could have escaped my radar for so long!!

There are rooms and rooms of wonderful antique, vintage and handmade items, you can just breathe in the inspiration!


I took the pics with my iPhone, so they don't really do justice to the soft vintage beauty of this shoppe. Can't wait to go back!!
And yes, I did find a little something for my swap partner! ;)
