Vintage Easter Blog Hop

Joan at Anything Goes Here is hosting a Vintage Easter Blog Hop. Be sure to hop on over to her blog to see the links to everyone else who is joining the party.

I am showing photos of three pieces of Easter ephemera. The floral bouquet card is a postcard. The cross and the eggs are both small about 2.5"x4". I found them in a stack of papers from an estate sale. I love the soft colors and sentiment of the floral bouquet card.


I wish I had seen how he managed to get into the bag without tearing it or knocking it over!

Vintage Thingies Thursday

Colorado Lady's blog has links to the other participants in this weeks Vintage thingies thursday. There are some fun vintage things to admire.

I don't have a purse collection but once in awhile I find one that makes me smile. These are a few of my favorites. The small gold coin purse has a tag inside saying it was made in West Germany. The lining is perfect and there are rhinestones on the ends of the clasps. The white purse has metal handles and is covered with beads and rhinestones. It was made in Hong Kong. And the blue one is an eye glass case, with an optometrist's name and address inside. Thanks for looking, see you next week.

Match Safe

Head over to Colorado Lady's blog to see more Vintage Thingies!

I found this little treasure in the back of a cabinet at my Mom's house. It needs to be cleaned up a bit but looks pretty good. You can see on the side an opening where the box shows through so you can strike the matches.

Lilac photo

Our nice weather has gotten me thinking about all that spring brings. Last night I did a google search for a photo of purple flowers and found the lilac photo. I know we will have more rain and cold days but for now the warm days feel great.

1970's Owls

Suzanne, the hostess for Vintage Thingies Thursday, posted some 1970's items which reminded me of my owls. A friend gave me these three cute framed owl prints. Like the ceramics she mentioned, owls were quite popular collectibles back then!
Head on over to Colorado Lady's blog for more entries in this week's VTT

It's Tigger's turn to show off her tummy!

Saturday, March 6, 2010


We have a new vendor at the store, she calls herself the "Sock Monkey Lady". She makes the cutest monkeys and cats, dogs, elephants, turtles, frogs, bunnies...out of socks. She recycles socks when she can find them; like the ones she used on this sock cat. I couldn't resist it's cute face, so it has a new home with me!
