I'll start with some cute baby/kid type items.
This vintage Charlotte Becker print is so perfectly shabby chic.
I loved it immediately.
I think it'd look darling in a nursery.
Same goes for this sweet little lamb.
This old crayon holder was a must-get.
This old souvenir toy is so charming, to me :)
I also found this slightly kitschy plate
with the "Chandelier Drive Thru Tree"
I'm a California girl, so I guess I really couldn't pass up
on the retro CA souvenirs ;)
I liked this Avon "Small World" cologne bottle.
It kind of reminded me of Gwen Stefani's Harijuku Lover's perfumes,
shaped like those little dolls.
I'm just wondering, am I the only one who buys
things that are perfectly decrepit
because you feel drawn to them and they're cheap?
She's missing a leg.
And has staples in her head.
Her eyes are almost rubbed away...
But I couldn't leave it.
Some random things--
a vintage ceramic horse head,
and this book.
I often buy things to use simply as "props"
in my shop photos.
That's why I bought it.
I have a few of these now, with all kinds of funny sayings.
Note the rolling pin at the bottom of the plate, lol.
Cute apple chopping board.
An old tin and mini framed art.
The photos I already had.
I love these types of frames, vintage Italian.
A pottery bird candleholder
for me to paint.
Way back when, I used to read two retro-type
magazines called "Reminisce" and "Good Old Days."
I think both were meant for grandmas and grandpas who
had actually grown up during the 30s-50's, but
I loved how both shared memories people had
of living back then.
I think both magazines may still be published.
Have you heard of them?
I was really happy to find this book.
It's put out by Good Old Days, and
has stories about all sorts of retro things.
Okay, one more thing.
This is actually, for some reason, my favorite!
A vintage, handmade bread warmer.
Underneath each of this cute chicky's wings is an opening,
and there is a basket to keep your biscuits or rolls
or what have you warm on the dinner table.
Isn't it adorable? The fabric and design are so fun!
