After searching for hand wrought aluminum trays for almost two years, I finally scored with this lovely pine cone tray. It isn't stamped and it does have some scratching, but I love the design and it was $2.50. There were two more. One with a dogwood design and hammer marks, and one with peonies.
A couple of weeks ago, I found these linens. The blue needlepoint on the left is a pillowcase. I love the orange, brown, and green colors in the table runner on the right.
I received this lovely collection of vintage items from my vintage swap partner, Patty Jean. I just loved how magical the swap was. The embroidered butterfly tablecloth is so sweet (how did she know my butterfly connection). She also sent a bundle of vintage buttons that were so unique (a new fascination of mine), a pair of vintage boy's pants (70ish) that fit Jude perfectly, and a sweet little floral printed shirt with the floral print that is so precious. What a lovely experience the swap has been... thanks to Heather for so much fun!
a little cooking themed set with one of the vintage aprons I found earlier this fall, a cookie cookbook from the late 60s, and a vintage flour bag that seemed to have the perfect colors for the set.
some fabric...admittedly a little on the wild side, but she wrote that orange and pink together was one of her favorite color combinations....a yard of barkcloth, a printed cotton velvet sample, and one of the vintage pillowcases from earlier this fall.
and the day before I sent the package I found this sweet little mushroom ovenware dish so I felt like it was meant for her package as well.
what are your latest thrifting finds?...I'd love to hear.
