Vintage Inspiration Friday

I'm running a tad bit late, well actually I'm running really late to Debra's http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/..... I've been adding things to my website this week, you know taking pictures writing description's, taking measurements of everything, it's all so time consuming.... and on top of that I'm trying to get a whole display ready of my things to take to Laurie Anna's Vintage Home in Canton, I've been taking things there every month to sale, but this past month, Laurie spoke with me about doing a whole display of my things, I was very honored, but I'm finding it very hard to get everything done in time, and it's almost time for Canton again.... I'm also getting behind on leaving comments to everyone, but I will get to everyone, it may just take me a little bit, so please forgive me, but I will be by, because I appreciate each and everyone that leaves me comments, I LOVE reading them, and I feel that your time is just as valuable as mine! Now I'll get on with more of the treasures that I found on my recent trip to Georgetown and to Round Rock Tx.


This was one of my favorite things that I found.


I always love the old vintage hats!
I don't know what it is about wedding books now, I find myself interested in them, I just recently was in the book store and purchased a wedding magazine! But this was one of my finds at Gatherings!
I bought about 14 pairs of gloves, I've been making pillows with gloves on them lately, and that's what I bought these for, and I've already used a few pair of them,,, but I thought it would look really cool to find a neat way to display these gloves, so now I'll be looking for the perfect display for them!
I think these were my favorite!
Couldn't pass these up!

I'm always a sucker for these cute little doll heads!
and beautiful decorated bottles.
are just beautiful old bottles!
Love theses!!!
I hope you enjoyed my little treasures for today, I will post the rest of my finding soon.... If you haven't been by Debra's http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/ please stop by and visit her and the other participants for more vintage inspiration!

Vintage Inspiration Friday - Gatherings

It's time for Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra @ http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/! I wanted to share with you an antique mall that my mother and I went to last Thursday in Georgetown Tx. They were having a garage sale outside in the back of the store... it was a great garage sale so much to see, and even more inside treasures to look at! We had so much fun, and found some great things!

I just love this booth with all of it's whites, I took more pictures of it but they didn't turn out very good, I was really disappointed because it was such a lovely shabby chic booth! I took pictures of the garage sale but will show them on my next weeks post, along with more pictures of the store. I think they hold this garage sale once a year!




They had lace everywhere in this store!


I just love the vintage dress, and the color is wonderful.

Do you see the mirror in the back ground with the vintage dishes all around it, it's so gorgeous!!!

What a pretty purse!

Look at this long line, I think it was longer than that when I was in line!

This was such a sweet booth, all decked out for Easter! The picture above and below belonged to one of the ladies and her friend that was working there. I wrote their names down, but can't hardly read my own writing .... I think it was Jan and Toni, if anyone know for sure please let me know!


What a cute rabbit! I hope you enjoyed the tour and all of the wonderful treasures. I will have more picture next week of this antique store, "GATHERINGS" and will also post later my treasure that I found there! Please stop by and visit our gracious hostess Debra @ http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/ and all of the other participants! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

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!!!
