Check out this great Vintage cardtable my mom scored at a yard sale for $5.00! "Thou shalt not covet" I keep telling myself! I love the picture~~it looks like a Farmer's Market in Europe. And I just love the red dress on the lady walking the dog~~so vintage!
Does anyone recognize anything in the picture? I'd love to find out how old it is so if you have any info please leave a comment!
And look at this Vintage sweater I scored at a little shop that I frequent:
(If spring ever actually arrives, that is!)
Here are some goodies I've found lately. . .the book is French which I cannot read to save my life but it has beautiful photographs and it is my favorite shade of blue! The note cards are taken from the book Lawrence Alma~Tadema by RJ Barrow and are titled "Luxury & Decadence". . .there are 16 different images and they are all stunning!
Of course the Spring issue of Victoria which I am very pleased is back however I must quietly admit there is something missing this time around with it's publication. . .has anyone else thought/felt so? It's well done but it just seems, or should I say, it feels like there is something missing and I am not sure what. Any thoughts?
I found the labels at Homegoods for under $5.00 each and just had to bring them home. . .my daughter and I used some to tag our luggage when we traveled in February. I love to find pictures of old suitcases covered with stickers from all around the world! They don't stick quite as well to nylon, though. Another downside of modern travel gear, I guess.
Oooooh, this is a good one! A few years ago I bought a beautiful little black suede Vintage purse made in Spain. When I got home I looked in the tiny pocket and found this stamp inside. . .why did she save it? Who is John F. Donovan? Did she meet him in Hong Kong? Did they ever meet? Was it a last love letter before her wedding to another?
I think the mystery of it all is delightful! This is another goodie I would like to find out about. Maybe the postal mark has a date on it? Once again I find myself wishing I spoke another language!!
My curiosity about the past of Vintage treasures is probably the most intriguing part of collecting. That and wondering how in the world a size 12 in the 1950's came with a 26" waist! Where would that put a modern size 12 in that era? Yikes! How Americans have grown!
Have a great week everyone,
