Vintage-y Goodness



First of all, a big shout-out to my personal Blogging Goddess, Miss Robin (check out her blog Various and Sunday over in the links sidebar), who is responsible for helping me make this blog look as if it belongs to a competent human rather than a super-caffeinated monkey...thanks, Robin!



Several weeks ago B. and I went to an estate sale that truly rocked. (I have to say that sometimes I just get a certain vibe off a newspaper ad for a sale; nothing specific, just a vibe.) This sale had something for everyone--and it certainly had something for ME! Some treasures scored:

Not just one fab plastic Halloween decoration (see above) . . .












. . . but a whole gaggle of them.




Vintage fabric . . .















And two (!) full boxes of vintage patterns. For free.




Included were at least a dozen different patterns for aprons--check out the his and hers barbecue aprons at bottom left complete with a transfer design of a puppy running away with sausages . . .












Miscellaneous: we got two of those faux basket tins at top, and the Japanese millinery fruit at right was also free for the taking. Ooh-la-la! Now--where to store all these lovelies?

Oh my goodness! Such fun stuff! How did you fit it all in the car? :-)
