A Few Finds This Weekend!

I just wanted to share a few things I found this weekend, while shopping in the Antique Mall here in our little town!

This brooch has matching earrings, but I left them at the Mall, I called them and their saving them for me!

I just love vintage basket's, however I don't think this one is very old... but it has a nice vintage look to it!

This piece is a skirt, thought it would be wonderful to cut up and make a pillow with it!
This is a table skirt, I just love the wonderful trim it has around it!
I can't resist pink!
What a cute little heart piece!

This picture and the one's below is some things that my Mom bought at an auction recently, she loves to dig through boxes of things, and so do I. I love when it has vintage cards and old letters in them!!!
These are old War Ration Books!
Look at price of these stamps!

Hope you enjoyed my little treasure hunt.... I will be sharing some more treasures that I found this past week when my Mother and I took a little road trip, and will also be sharing pictures of a great Antique store on my Vintage Inspired Friday with Debra @ Common Ground! Hope your having a wonderful Sunday!!!

I think you have x-ray eyes! You always manage to find the neatest things on your treasure hunting trips. I love the skirt with the tucks already in it - that makes pillow making a lot easier.

Thanks for stopping by, yes, I have been on a Mission to find beautiful Cowboy Boots in my size... and I've been photographing those that caught my eye, but alas, had to remain behind because they were the wrong size. *le pout* Why do all the Cowgirls seem to have such small feet I wonder? *winks*
