Vintage Treasures

Although I've always loved antiques and vintage things it wasn't until recently that I have begun to seek them out. Growing up we could never afford anything new and I think after moving out I went through a phase where I really enjoyed feeling when I could afford something new. Luckily that phase in my life has passed. I am always on the lookout for great finds. I look for beautiful items for decoration, for use in my home and for future projects. Here are a few of my most recent finds.
 Last weekend I went to a yard sale held by an older woman cleaning out her home after 30 years (always a good sign of treasures). I found these cute little mushrooms for $1. The curtains are a Goodwill find for $10 for three panels.
 I also got these Scottish wool fabric samples from the 70's or 80's, that are the perfect size for pillow covers, great for fall (50 cents a piece).
 I also got this adorable jar from Japan for $1. I also bought a four necklaces, and a pair of large clip-on earrings that would be great as a ring. In all I spent $8.50. Not bad for a days work.

Till Later,
