So then I think I'll blog a little about life in general, but things around here have been difficult and I don't like to complain on my blog if I can help it...so that won't work.
What I can blog about, instead, though, is some fun vintage stuff I've been picking up here and there lately, and I hope you won't think it's ho-hum. It's the best I've got right now!
This beautiful Vera apron is actually floor length -- it's more like a tunic, with ties on the sides, but was created as a fancy apron for the 1970's hostess. Is it not adorable? I found it for $2.50 at an estate sale.
I love these little paper, embossed bands. I think they were used in the 1950s as gift wrapping accessories; I believe they were folded around plain ribbons, either under the bow or in place of a bow. Does anyone remember? I think they'll be fun additions to ephemera journals.
A fun little key brooch/pin...that day I was looking for BIRD pins for a Birdsong 3 swap but this is what I came up with, instead. It was only $1!
I ordered these from an Etsy seller in England; they are little wrens on farthing coins. How CUTE are they? I couldn't resist. I think they would make a cute pendant if I set them in a bezel.
Did I ever show you this is a very cool Jergens cosmetics box from the early 1900s? It has a great embossed paper outside, and I love how it is lined with this fabulous silk blend fabric.
The back bears a proprietary stamp, which was sort of the business tax of the day back in 1916. I'm getting ready to list it in my shop.
