I love this vintage greeting card image. It is just a fun start to today's post. I don't know about you, but I never leave the house with out my nails done and my collar pressed...ha!
Two cute little Fitz and Floyd mugs. I am going to stash these away for my bottle brush trees next year.
Lefton Lovely, not a chip on her, perfect for a pincushion. Two Valentine angels in need of repair but cute just the same.
These little boys are labeled Hong Kong. I am not sure of the age, but I really liked their faces. They appear to be made of plastic. I think I will use them in a Santa candy boot. The angels were my favorite find. They have that Irmi feel. Very simplistic and very tiny.
Books are my downfall. I run out of space so fast for these. The bottom one is an early 1900's Walt Whitman poetry collection. The top one is a 1909 copy of a mint book keeping manual with the most gorgeous writing and graphics. Cute travel clock in muddy colors pink and green that still work for $1.00. You can't get a new plastic one for a dollar.
Some playing cards. I use these as gift tags on packages. They work so well and make the gift look unique. This little card fell out of the book. It is a Christmas card dated 1857. As far as I can tell it looks real. Sometimes I wonder, that whole reality thing....
A page out of the book keeping book.
Just a few shiny brites to round it out.
A face only a mother could love. My Lincoln down for the count while I sort the goods.
A huge thank you to Miss Elizabeth of Creative Breathing/ Bluebird Papercraft for shining the light on my blog today. You all have given me such a warm welcome. I really love all your comments. I have a weekend full of new blogs to read!
