Yay! I've had a run of good luck this month finding all sorts of yummy vintage things. So there is, and will be, lots of new stuff in my Etsy shop. Have a look...
At an estate sale last weekend, I discovered a giant-sized tin that once held 300 Sweet-heart Sugar Cones. Although I intend to sell it, for now, it looks right at home atop my Hoosier cabinet.
The items, above, are extra sweet, like the aqua serving tray paired with a set of my flower button magnets so it can do double duty as a memo board. Love the tiny windsor-style doll chair! I also found a 1920's print that sports a humorous poem called "Welcome Guest," perfect to hang in a guest room. And those 1970s circus train birthday candle holders are kitschy as can be.
As you may have noticed, I like to use picnic tins and suitcases for storage in my studio. I'm hoping that these three will soon go to new homes (except the train case, which is a keeper).
Why I am so drawn to vintage vases with two handles? Maybe because they look like they have cute little arms with hands on their hips? Not sure, but I do know that these three beauties were made long ago by Shawnee Pottery.
More fun storage options: an industrial metal bin with drawers, a canister set with hand painted strawberries (it just sold), and a wooden box featuring a charming cottage illustration on the lid.
Mother's Day is fast approaching. This folding bed tray can be used to treat mom to breakfast in bed. It can also be a lap desk or a reading stand since the top tilts to accommodate a book.
I must admit, I have a soft spot for vintage toys. Brimming with nostalgic appeal, I think the ones shown above are beyond adorable.
So that's what's new in my Etsy shop! Never fear, I'm working away to get everything listed as soon as I am able. And by the way, Etsy has just redesigned its shop pages. Now the pictures are larger and you can scroll down to see every aspect of the shop all on one page. I really like the new format. Take a peek and let me know what you think...
