Vintage-y Finds

Here's a sampling of a few treasures that I have collected. They all bring me cheer.
- The bunny box is from not old (it's from Pottery Barn Kids) and is on loan in my daughter's bunny-themed nursery.
- The white hobnail jar is a Target find several years ago (currently housing diaper pins).
- So is the pink cup in the middle (which is used as a pencil cup in my craft closet.)
-The butter pat dish is from an antique store. (It is home to several small pairs of earrings in the bathroom.)
-The tiny pink cup is a recent thrift store find. So dainty.
-Aaaaannd, the fabric was scored yesterday at, you guessed it, a thrift store. It's a sheet that I am planning to turn into a smock-type dress for Charlotte. I have never sewn a piece of clothing from scratch, but this vintage sheet may just inspire me to take the leap. Here's a closeup my lovely vintage fabric:And can you believe that in surfing a few blogs today, I found it here also?! (Look for Wednesday, March 5, 2008 titled, "Going To Pieces".) Fun blog.

You'd like more closeups?? No problem.

I enjoy breathing new life into older items. The romantic in me always imagines the stories an object could tell, if it had a voice. Even my wedding ring is an estate ring from the 1950's. The band is worn thin and I think about the many years this ring has already been part of marriage. Maybe someday, (aah, more romantic notions) some of my personal items will find their way to a thrift store or a yard sale and someone else can add to the history. To me, history only adds to the value.
