Vintage Goodness

Last week, when I spent a few days with my daughter, we went to two of our favorite antique malls.  I'm always on the lookout for vintage linens, trims, laces and buttons.  I came home with lots of  "new" old stuff and I can't wait to get started on all the ideas I have!

I found lots of hankies.

Colorful, simple and stitched linen towels.

Beautifully embroidered tablecloth with matching napkins.

A round pink and white favorite color!

Embroidered table scarves.

Gorgeous cotton decorator fabric.

Fun trim.

Jars of buttons and miscellaneous sewing supplies.

I had so much fun picking and choosing what I wanted.  The best part is that I'm inspired every time I look at all this vintage goodness sitting in my sewing room!

I'm linking up with My Romantic Home for
