Latest Vintage Finds

While we were unpacking at the hotel in Virginia Beach, Michael realized he forgot his sandals. Shopping on the beach proved to be futile, so we planned a trip to a shopping center we found in a brochure for the next day.
On our way there, we passed an antique mall. Although we didn't stop there that day, we did go back the next day!

I found these beautiful vintage hankies and a jar of fabulous vintage buttons.

I really love the hankie with the woman in the purple ball gown.  Each of the other 3 corners have a ballerina in different poses.  It's perfect for lavender sachets.

I also really love these buttons!  I've bought other vintage buttons, but this jar has the biggest variety of colors, textures and sizes.  Buttons are my favorite embellishment and I can't wait to use these.

I'm having a hard time coming out of vacation mode!  Michael went back to work today and I had all kinds of plans to get things done.  I ended up reading most of the day.  I don't feel guilty either!  Laundry must be done tomorrow and groceries need to be bought because Erin is coming to drop off Shylee for 3 days!  The little munchkin needs to eat and I need to get back on track with Weight Watchers.  So....back to reality tomorrow.


  1. They're just fun aren't they? By the way...I believe in love too!!
