Just another day in suburbia here...almost. After all the kiddos were dropped off at their respective schools I decided I would have a bit of me time. It is my birthday after all. I have reached the age where I don't need a celebration and lavish gifts. The day is gift enough.
An amazing assortment of children's hankies were gifted to me by my best friend.
Along with the children's hankies she gave me this lovely handful of vintage handkerchiefs. It has been such a pleasure going through each and every one of these. Thank you Amy.
Trims in such wonderful sizes and styles. Crochet that is so peachy perfect and a book with vintage trim designs.
Nursery vest all hand sewn. Sweet addition to my tiny tales. Oh so cute 45's.
Tin toy Christmas dishes. I can't wait to display.
The most amazing find of the day was this wonderful huge embroidery pattern. It must have been mail ordered. The envelope had no date and was metered. Even stranger there was no address just the name, town and state. Fortunately for me it was never used. I forked over a full dollar for this beauty. The image above is just the small detailed image on the paper. The actual stitching image is enormous and has a floral border.
Of course there were far too many things on the schedule today to celebrate with dinner. We will try to get out this weekend as a family. Fall baseball has started and is in full swing. Boy scouts continues all year round and at long last it is a school night. It is just another day in suburbia here. No matter how many vintage items I bring in whenever I pull out of the driveway I am surrounded by track homes and black SUV's...back to my stitching tomorrow.
