Hello thrifting friends!
Here are my finds for this week:
Now that Christmas is on the not-too-distant horizon,
I'm starting to think of holiday things more.
I'm one of those people who need it to be "near"
in order to shop for it.
I need to change that ;)
Anyway, these vintage tags struck me as really cute.
It's amazing, the choices, styles, etc. that even Christmas tags come in!
I love that these are "old-fashioned,"
and like the ones I remember from childhood.
I had to laugh after buying the following,
because I actually didn't realize it was a doll pattern.
Hmm, could that strangely stiffly positioned arms
have given me a clue?
That, and the fact that "doll" is written on the front :)
I don't have any sewing skills, anyway--
I just bought this because it was cute.
But Addie does have some 18" tall dolls,
so maybe I'll try making something for the first time.
This next one was also too cute to pass on.
I love the clothing styles and the illustrations.
And the personal touches are always
what seals the deal for me,
like the red penmanship noting
"Monty's" waist size.
This fabric was so adorable,
I knew I had to bring it home with me.
I really adore patchwork stuff.
This patchwork dog was so darling.
I like picking out my favorite fabrics on things like this :)
Vintage blankets of any kind,
but especially baby blankets, are something I could never tire of.
There's something so sweet a vintage baby blanket.
I liked how bright and cheerful it was,
as well as the cute farm theme.
Another vintage pony book for my collection.
I wish I would've taken pictures of the illustrations inside.
I really like them.
Finally, my find from awhile back--this fabulous 70's kitchen art.
I forget if I've shown it before,
but taking photos of them again reminded me of how cool I think they are :)
They are original, and signed "Josie 71" on the bottom.
Isn't Josie such a 1970's name?
I think it's cute.
But maybe that's just because It think of Josie and the Pussycats.
