My Vintage Valentine

Pin It
Hope you all had a magnificent Valentine's Day!

Mine was well spent with a lovely little trip to the thrift store.  What more could a girl want than a few hours to herself to rummage through piles of discarded treasure looking for vintage gold?  Nope, I'm not a red rose kinda gal.

I wanted to share a glimpse of my little haul with you, I know you will appreciate them more than the hubster did.


*buttons*

lots and lots of pretty creamy white buttons!
I've wanted to fill this apothecary jar with buttons for about a year without spending a fortune.
$3 for a huge bag sure made me smile!


*vintage ribbon*

I snatched up 4 rolls of beautiful old ribbon spools on the cheap {$2}.  These are so old & gorgeous with a beautiful patina... such soft colors of cream and taupy rose.  The original pricing of 25 cents is printed on the spools from way back in the day!  They just may make it into my Etsy shop!

A vintage 'little' chair {which I'll share later} and some pretty silver spoons also found their way home with me.

Yes, I was met with a few sideways glances and mumbling of,

"thought you were trying to get rid of a bunch of junk, right?"

Jeez, I hate when they throw your words right back atcha'.
But
He just doesn't understand the concept of ridding the house of junk junk
to make room for the pretty vintage junk.

Thinking of bringing back the Link party soon, any thoughts on that?
I so love seeing what everyone is up to every week.
So, tell me... have you scored and Vintage Treasure lately?
