I have been missing in action here in blogland,
partly due to my internet plan, partly due to life being a little
crazy right now, and okay...fessing up, partly from blog laziness.
I think next month I'll be taking a little blog break, but not today.
Today I'm sharing a couple cute vintage finds.
I found this vintage leather train case at an estate sale about a month ago.
It was hidden on a shelf in their garage; filthy dirty and greasy, but it cleaned up nicely.
It is a little imperfect, showing some age bruises, but that surely is
what I love about it.
Next, I found these vintage inspired travel stickers for sale at the antique
shop where I consign. A little karma was working there.
I'm loving the finished product...how about you?
Now the fun of deciding what to use it for, or maybe even
take it on a train trip! Oh, and I paid the lowly sum of $1.00 for it.
No tablecloths today, but a few vintage apron finds.
This sweetie is an Alaskan souvenir apron. Gotta love the graphics.
A colorful Mexican-Southwest theme here.
& these two are just so vintage cute! Do you like vintage aprons?
Ever use them? I have a few imperfect aprons in my kitchen which
I do grab for cooking because I am a messy one. It makes me feel like that 1950's
TV housewife, even without the accompanying dress and heels. ;)
I love this book! Are you familiar with it?
The Apron Book by EllynAnne Geisel.
She is a vintage linen collector and aprons are her specialty.
The book is filled with sweet apron stories and photos.
and even patterns for making new retro aprons. I don't sew, but love to get lost in this book.
Could you resist that look? Doyle has claimed his position at the
back door so it's time for us to go out and get our exercise.
Really.....could you resist that
glare stare? I sure can't!
Thanks for reading bloggy friends. XXX OOO
