Tall vintage drinking glasses in turquoise and red swirl (2 of each color ). Vintage soda shop girl planter. Most adorable paper straws in stripes and dots.
I like the idea of using vintage things in new ways. The glasses and planter could hold so many items in the kitchen, craft room or office. The soda shop planter was at my house and now I'm letting her go to make room for something new. Sweet husband encourages me to find and keep whatever I wish so long as things go out the door in equal ratio to things coming in the door. He is quite reasonable and practical like that. Good thing too... because I'm much more interested in acquisitions than in selling off my finds. So really, the mister is good for business at moxie. He keeps the vintage rolling out of our house and into the shop.
A freshly laundered stack of vintage tablecloths. All of them less than 20 dollars.
I love the look of a stack of pretty fabrics or tablecloths. Each pattern peeking out just a bit to entice you to pick it up and look more closely. Each one ready to adorn your table or be tossed upon a grassy knoll for a picnic. What's not to love! No offense to tablecloths of modern times if they are made of cotton but the majority of the ones I come across are poly/cotton and while it may make for less wrinkles, I think it makes for a less than stellar look and feel. But then I'm a true vintage girl at heart so I would think that :)
Thanks to those of you (and you know who you are...) that have pulled me aside and told me you wished I blogged more often. Recently I've heard that a lot and I'm shocked and thankful all at the same time. I will try to honor your requests and get to it. Thanks so much for even wanting to read my ramblings. So sweet you all are !
