Getting started...

I've learned so much and been deeply inspired by the many talented design and vintage bloggers out there, so it's finally time for me to jump into the pond.  I hope to share my love of all things handmade, vintage and decor related here.  I'll start off by sharing my vintage finds from this weekend.  I had a lot of misses, but a few hits, starting with this gorgeous little Phinney Walker German alarm clock from an estate sale.

It is studded with rhinestones and cleaned up so pretty! 

Another estate sale - Large cuts of fabric, cotton to the right, wool to the left

Linen tablecloths that I will hopefully use for pretty cushion covers

Gorgeous red corduroy

Vintage cocktail mats from Scotland. I love old tourist photos.

Gorgous crewel pillow.  Will need to be cleaned thoroughly...I ruined a similar piece of needlework recently when I tried to soak it in Oxyclean, so hopefully I can find a gentler method and redeem myself here.

Vintage tape measures...always need these tucked around the house!

A teeny pillbox the smaller than a quarter... I love the sparkle!

Old latch hook canvases...I don't know what I'll do with these, but I'll find a use...if not, they'll go into my etsy store.

Well, that's it for this weekend! Now to learn how to link up with others...


  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!!

    I love your little alarm clock, it's sweet!

  2. Welcome to the blogging world! I love that crewel pillow; I have no good cleaning tips, but I bet someone out there does... I've gotten tons of great cleaning ideas from fellow bloggers. Thanks for linking up with us!

  3. I second the others--welcome! :) You had some great finds! I especially love the embroidered pillow and of course the clock.
