Vintage Sewing!

A couple of week-ends ago, my husband and I were out doing our usual estate shopping. On our way to the next sale we passed a garage sale. I normally pass up the garage sales and head straight towards the estate sales as many times it takes a lot of garage sales to find what I'm looking for. This one was different something caught my eye, I think it was the vintage clothing, I had to stop. The first thing I spotted were corks, I needed some for vintage bottles I have. Next, I spotted old Christmas ornaments, a full box! Wow and for $5.00, I was so excited. Next, I headed to the deck where my husband was gathering up vintage trim for me. I have to say he's getting pretty good at finding what I like. There were boxes and boxes of vintage fabric and trims to go through. The lady selling the items told me these boxes were from her 90 year old aunt who enjoyed making doll dresses. I had so much fun looking through all these boxes and filling up bags, you noticed the "s" on bags. Here are a few of the pictures of some of the trim and fabrics I found.

Here are a bunch of vintage baby cards that I also found. I love vintage paper items.

Well, I'll sign off for now, tonights a movie night so we will be watching "No Reservations" it looks like it should be a good one! Later!

Hi Debbie!

I didn't know you had a blog until I got your comment. I have been a huge fan of yours for a long time. In fact, I was at Monticello today and I only bought a couple little things, but I did get a bundle of pretty crochet hangers from your booth in the garden room. What a coincidence that you commented on my blog today. I love all of your pretty things and admire your crafting talent. Lot the stuff you found. Especially the ticking fabric and pink rick rack. I will have to bookmark you and I will definitely be back to see more. Hopefully we can "bump" into each other sometime at M's. Best wishes,
