Greetings and Holykisses!
Yesterday afternoon I hit my favorite Shoppes. What a fun day!
Here are a few olde things that found their way home with me.
How about a vintage, childrens suit case?
I've looked for one for a long time and really like the size, golden wheat color and perfect amount of rattiness in this Amelia Earhart!
I asked my friend who's one of the owners of this store and he said he thought it's probably from the 40's. I haven't researched it yet, but love that it still bears the label--.
I'm thinkin Urinah Mariah (my dressform)will have to use it for her next photo shoot out at the potting shed.
These scissors were marked 25cents each. The tiny one on the right is my favorite. The other two look big but are really the size of kindergarten scissors.
When I was paying out a the antique store; my friend asked if I'd "want" a box of old kids clothes they had settin there! He said it had been there a long time and he was tired of tripping over it. What a blessing!
Some are made of feedsacks, and most are handmade! I love the tiny pearl buttons.
This is my favorite little night dress. It's stained and has just one little pearl button still attached. I can't wait to launder and iron it and hang it in a window in my craft room.
Isn't it pretty? Notice the tiny lazy daisy stitches?
This little romper is chambray blue and is the cutest design. The embroidered bunny is done by hand and look how they created the bottom that snaps. Lots of love went into sewing this romper. -- In the morning I'll throw these all in the wash on delicate and then hang them out on the line to sun dry. I may try to clean the inside of the suit case as best as I can and let it air-out in the sunshine too. It smells kinda funny but if I store these clothes inside the case maybe a fresh dryer sheet would keep them all nice and fresh.
I also found a prim box about half full of vintage buttons. I haven't went through them one by one yet, but did poke through abit when taking these pictures .....
It's a sweet little lot and has rhinestone, glass, pearls, plastics, and cut steels. I saw one bone button too so I'm anxious to get a closer look at them. See the pretty purple rhinestone button? It will go in someone's Lydia jar.
This barnyard picture is a slice of country paradise.
If you just look into it for a little while I think you'll see the love.
See what I mean? Did you hear the doves coo?
Here's the back of a vintage ginger wafers tin. I had a picture of the front on here as well but I accidentally deleted it a second ago by backspacing. Woops. Maybe you'll see it on my shelf some other day.
Last but not least is this old crock. Unfortunately its missing the wire bale; but it was certainly priced right. The lid says April 16th 1901. It needs a little love, and "some goo be gone," since they taped the lid in place so it wouldn't get broken. I'm anxious to see if I can make a little bale for it somehow or ... maybe it will go bale less... who knows? I can already imagine it with a bouquet of Autumn flowers and a primitive crocks n jars sign nearby.
So those were my finds for the day.
Thanks for droppin in and happy junkin!
