Well here we are at the end of 2012, I wanted to do one more post and this is it.
I am showing you my last finds of this year. The picture above is a stack of old patterns I got 31 from the mid 60s - mid 70s.
One thing I hope to learn better in 2013 is to sew. I said the same thing last year but I didn't do much practicing. (Shame on me) I told my Grandma she needs to help me. But now she is second guessing her skills. *hahah* She used to make dresses for herself back in the 50s, 60s & 70s but hasn't done much since. She pretty much only does repairs and simple sewing nowadays.
My first Elvis tee
Lady in green dress barrel mug
Deer vase / Planter
Perfume bottle 1
Perfume bottle 2
Gravy boat, serving bowl & serving platter
$4 for the three pieces (Can you believe that?!)
Small pyrex (I think I have the other two bigger ones in this pattern. Of course they are packed.... so I woun't know for awhile.) *lol*
Dior shoes.... (These confuse me) I really don't think they are real Dior .... or maybe they are... I don't have the slightest clue. If they are they are from the 70s. Never been worn the bottoms are pristine. They seem a little fragile. Where the thrift store had put the sticker on the shoe (When I went to take it off some of the black material came off on the sticker. (DARN STORES)
Little squirrel figurines I found yesterday
YES I named them!
Slightly demented but sort of cute too. I think these cushion covers are quite old. The backgrounds are velvet. And whoever made them probably invested a few good hours into each.
"Stop looking at me SWAN!"
Vintage children's styling doll.
Strawberry Shortcake doll
Yesterday my Hello kitty toys told me they wanted to go for a drive but only one could fit in the "kitty car" So they had to borrow my Husbands vehicle.
But his Masterchief got upset and threatened kitty to get out of his seat.
Thank you to all my followers for following my blog. I enjoy your comments, messages and friendships!
For 2012 I only did 63 posts
2011 I did 87
I was determined I would beat my 87 from 2011 in 2012 (But I did not) I sort of slacked a good couple of months.
Okay so I am going to give it another shot. *Cross fingers*
I hope 2013 is a great year for everyone.
I am sure there will be lots more vintage finds.
A LOT more garage saling (You know once all this darn snow melts and we enter spring season) *hah*
Maybe 2013 will include more Hello Kitty too!
I wrote this by candle light. Everyone was watching the Expendables 2, so I found myself a corner in the kitchen. It's actually sort of peaceful & relaxing, I may have to do it again. The candles burning are Pine & Happy Holiday. Soon they will packed up and stored back with the Christmas items.
And I will have to bring out the "New Year scents" Whatever they may be.
Happy New Year to you all!
