Internet Goodies

Etsy never fails to be a  source of vintage goodness.  Those hard to find things that I can never seem to get lucky enough to find at the thrift store or an estate sale.  I was also lucky enough to get a couple of wonderful surprises from a fellow blogger.

Vintage Bump Chenille
Just once I want to find a house full of vintage craft goodies....when the mail came...I pretended I was Magpie for just a moment!  These colors are so incredible the chenille is so silky.  Not sure what I am going to do with them right now but I am glad to have them in my stash.

Bakelite Knobs
Creamy yellow with the unmistakable red orange base.   I've been looking for some of these to add to vintage tins ( on the lid ).  Just to make them a little more kitsch.

French Provincial Drawer Pulls
Gorgeous detail, chippy paint and heavy metal.  These will soon be placed on an old secretary I am currently refinishing.

Blog Friends
Packages from fellow bloggers...such a surprise.  Miss Meri from Imagimeri was kind enough to send me the polka dot yellow fabric I needed to finish my Irmi lampshade.  To my surprise she tucked in these lovely vintage fabric pieces and Spring cupcake picks.  Lovely surprise.
