Fun Vintage finds


I think my dear friend, pen pal and kindred spirit Jackie from Once Upon a Fairyland  just may know me better than I know myself. She picked out this vintage style greeting card at her local bible book store and mailed it to me a while back. Inside she wrote....I knew this would make you feel happy!  She was so right.....this card is like a piece of eye candy to me, and had me craving for more color.....that's about the time I decided I wanted to start adding more color to my home. Another blogging friend Mica, has such a wonderful home , so full of color and vintage style...she too got me thinking....I needed to go back to the once more fun, vintage style, that I used to have in my little mobile cottage. So all that said....I started the hunt for fun things to add to!  The hunt is always the fun part for me......and even more fun when you find what you are hunting for. Just like these neat vintage Pyrex bowls I found at Salvation Army recently.

I was a little exicted about these :)

Then yesterday while my daughter,grandson Jaxon and I were out and about on an errand. We stopped by a little thrift store near by in the next little town over from ours. I saw this set of vintage juice glasses and thought...Yep...I like these!



Jaxon has an eye for vintage as well....he came bringing this old Fisher Price puppy dog to me...I told him...hang on to it grandson...he is going home with us  :)   My eldest son had one just like this when he was a little boy....it was his favorite toy of all time.


Go pay my friends a visit.....you won't be disappointed......blessings on your weekend, Shelley

Just love your pyrex bowls as well, they are such wonderful things, both useful and colourful at the same time.

What a great little dog your grandson picked out as well. He seems very happy with him.

Hurray for vintage at the thrifts! I'd love to find a fisher price puppy like that.

I actually found a fairly nice priced pyrex pan at an antique shop yesterday- a pink gooseberry baking pan! It was interesting because everything else was priced super high!
I don't know Mica- I'll check it out!

Vintage finds are so fun! I collect old pyrex bowls ~ I love that you can still find them online. They look so pretty lined up and displayed. Have a beautiful day!

your a doll Shelly!!! thank you for the sweet compliment on my home. I will say this though dear friend. Your mood will be ever so lifted when you fill your home with color. Mentally, It brings joy for me to wake up and see these happy colors filled in my home. I don't feel like I live in a dark, dreary cave.Years ago, my room had dark wood furniture with earth tones in my decor and blankets. It was dark...it was depressing. But now that I lightened it all up with cheery bedding and colors, I wake up with a smile. I am so serious it works for me! i hope it will work for you!!! happy hunting for treasures you love. Wish I could be there to help you revamp it all!!!! Hugs my friend, Mica

Hey, Jaxon is a cutie and I recall those adorable dog toys too. I like all the splashes of color you are adding, and I will visit your friends next.
