Vintage Thursday Thingie

Iboght this plate for $1.50 at a flea market a couple of years ago and I LOVE IT. I don't think it is anything special but I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, I haven't ever seen another one like it either. Fits right in my homey vintage kitchen. :)

Thursday Vintage Thingie

Long Time NO SEE, sorry to have disappeared but we have had some health issues for the past 8 months. Things seem to be going good now so I am back online. No pics for this, check my Valentines Day post, that is my Vintage Thingie, I found it at the local thrift shop and just couldn't pass it up. I THINK IT IS BRAND NEW AND WAS PUT AWAY WITHOUT EVER BEING USED. :) I AM THRILLED WITH IT. As you can see, so is our cat. We had a little fight over who really owns the afghan, guess who won?????

IT IS GREAT TO BE BACK, can't wait to check out everyone's treasures this week.

Thrift Shopping

WOW, what a find. I LOVE Granny Square Afghans and this one is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! not stretched out or mis shapen, colors are awesome and I fell in LOVE WITH IT. Got it today at the thrift store for $3.00. Couldn't pass it up. I went in looking for wool but came home with an afghan instead. :) And couldn't be happier with my find. As you can see our cat likes it too. And it is on a queen size bed. HUGE!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Valentines Day

Here are some Vintage Valentines, some of my favorites. Thought I would share them with you.

Enjoy your day whatever it is you have planned.

It has been a long winter here and I haven't had much time or ambition to blog, sad isn't it. But now I am ready for spring and ready to start new adventures. I just joined a new blog and this should be SOOO MUCH FUN. Nothing better than playing with wool and the local thrift store is having a 50% off day on Monday, EVERYTHING IN THE STORE IS 50% off, what more incentive do I need to go woolie shopping NOT MUCH!!!!!!!!!! IT is supposed to be warm here (20's is warm here for this time of year) this weekend and the sun is supposed to shine so I want to get my car washed, thinking of splurging and going into THE BIG CITY and getting it washed, some smell good added and I think they vacuum it out too. Exciting plans hey??????? And of course it is Valentines Day too. I bought Cupcakes so I am off the hook for buying or making anything. Also got a little cabinet (I will add a photo sometime soon) that I need to do some work on, I am hoping to be able to get the contact paper off the sides of it without having to strip the whole thing. I bought it at an auction for $1.00 and it is solid wood and has cool old metal hardware. Just needs a little TLC. So hopefully the weather co operates with me. WISH ME LUCK!!!!
