An array of smile-provoking vintage finds will be making an appearance in my Etsy shop this month. Have a look . . .
This pair of paint-by-number landscapes is nicely done — nice colors, too. A Cabin Craft chenille bedspread is the epitome of cozy cottage decor. It's ideal as a lighter bed covering for the warmer months ahead.
I have a weakness for anything vintage that relates to tea, like this wooden napkin holder, teapot-shaped curtain tie-backs, tiny cross stitch tea cup napkins, and a 1940s teapot ring holder.
More vintage goodness: a floral tablecloth, a 1949 Build It Yourself packet of lawn chair plans, a September 1968 issue of Better Home & Gardens magazine, The Wise Garden Encyclopedia, a small vintage vase, and a couple of Monogram brand hair nets from 1952.
Dutch motif items were all the rage. How cute are these Dutch boy and girl chalkware plaques and tin toy plate? Kitschy to the max.
Just in time for picnic season: a tartan plaid tin and striking floral tablecloth. Boston Terrier fans will love this folk art doorstop and handmade string holder.
Do you recall the Sunnyside stacking teapot, sugar bowl and creamer shown above? I wrote about it in a 2009 post titled This Teapot's a Keeper. Well — it's a keeper no longer! I am also selling my cat-shaped wooden match holder and garden girl planter. Plus, I found another pair of paint-by-number pictures and a darling sewing bag. It has the typewritten poem, below, on a strip of fabric at the top. So adorable.
It's a bright, sunny day here in my studio. Time for me to start photographing these yummy relics to ready them for their Etsy debut.
Enjoy the sunshine, if you have some,
