Quick Vintage Report

I have been crazy busy with work and home projects this week, so this post is a bit late.  I was afraid I might have to skip this week's post, but I do have a few fun vintage goodies to show off and a few minutes to spare, so here we go:

This is one of my favorite recent finds.  This vintage purse will be hard to let go - I love the floral motif and the olive green background.

This clear phone is so cool!  It has a neon tube and I'm dying to see if it works.  Unfortunately, it doesn't take a regular telephone cord, so I'm going to have to do some research before I can get it hooked up.  I also found this cute hamburger toy phone.

This ice bucket is so pretty.  I have no idea how old it is, though.

I've been picking up pretty tins -  they are always so cheap.  I use them to store vintage buttons and other odds and ends.

Those are my recent finds.  Now, here's a sneak peek at one of the projects that have been keeping me so busy.  I bought these acrylic paintings last year at a flea market with the intention of recycling the canvases.  I finally pulled them out and after a few coats of gesso, they were ready to go.   
I'm working on creating some abstract paintings to add some art to my walls.  I can't wait to finish and will be back soon with the reveal. 

Well, sorry for the rushed post, but I thank you so much for stopping by.  I love hearing your comments and have turned word verification off!
