Let's Talk Vintage! #67: My Latest Attic Finds

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
It's a come one, come all
kind of link up party!
If you can answer any of these 
three questions with a "YES!" then
 you've come to the right place:
1. Do you love vintage?
2. Does your mind love to take
something old and make it "new" again?
3. Are you a thriftin', junk lovin',
flea market decoratin' kind of person?
Feel free to link up your latest
re-purposed stuff, vintage items
you have for sale, thrift
shop finds and more!
Today I'm sharing with you
 some of my uh, attic finds.
They definitely came out of the attic.
As in, it is January and I am pulling
out things I packed away last year!
They are now in my Etsy
shops... or about to be listed there.

I remember buying this antique
local Tuesday flea market.
These old pieces continue to
have great appeal, no matter
how advanced we get with technology!
Which is why I love looking for
antiques. Old things evoke
emotions from us, don't they?

This spoon keeper is just simply charming.
I mean really! Look how sweet.
It has a great use, too.
But, now that I think about it,
where I found it is a mystery!
I love this teacup for the same reason.
Sweet and charming. More on the
shabby side due to some
gold paint loss... but the deep
green color with the pink roses
make it stand out for me.

It has been easier for me to find
depression glass lately. The
younger generation is just not
into buying this kind of thing.
Plus, the market is being
flooded with baby boomer stuff.
But lucky for us... we love finding
each and every treasure!
Check out this paper doll set
from 1953... "Here's the Bride!"

How times have changed.
I am always surprised how
nice vintage jewelry
pieces look when on display.
just pops!
I'll be hunting down "new"
treasures tomorrow with
Joyce from A Quilted Nest
 tomorrow... I haven't really
done too much shopping
because I had so much inventory
stored away. Should be fun
but Brrrrrrrr... it is now really
cold here! Hello Winter!
Let's take a look at
this week's features:
of Mrs. Olson shared her
Valentine cuties... hand made
treasures using tart tins!
Love how this vintage
chair turned out over at
It was the perfect vision for it.
The kitchen towel seat cover
was a great idea... plus
red is always a great color!
Sarah has done it again
Had to show you her gun rack
turned fabric holder!
Dianne of Deanie's Stash,
tugged at my heartstrings
when she shared some vintage
soap savers. I remember my
Grandmother using hers. How I
wish I had it now! The depression
era really taught people how
to be frugal and once those
habits were born, they stayed
for a lifetime.
If you've been featured, feel
free to grab this LTV icon
and share it on your blog!
Thanks so much for linking up...
it wouldn't be the same without
all of your inspiration!
Now it's Your Turn:

Hi Jill, I'm like you - have lots of stash in the basement inventory, and we just pulled a whole new set into our booth spaces last week. Thanks for hosting the party, and stay cozy out there. It's hard to want to shop, load and unload the car when it's so darn cold, isn't it? Snow's expected in our state by Friday, but I hope they're wrong!

Oh Jillian, I had those paper dolls, I was 5 or 6 then. All your treasures are so interesting and diverse, love that. Thanks for hosting always the best party. Sandi

I have a spoon keeper like that, except the embroidery on mine is more colorful. It appeared one day in the garage, in a box of rags my dad was using for oily stuff. No one has a clue who made it or where it came from. The best guess is that it was his mother's, but that doesn't explain how it got in with the rags.

Curtains in My Tree said...

I can remember paper dolls and how I loved them back in the 1950's era
It's so fun to find items like that of our childhoods

I have cleaned out all my extra stash of vintage items already and now i'm buying more ? guess it's new vintage stuff ?LOL that I haven't had before

Just now seeing this... yes - gonna be cold. Might need some long johns or an under layer of leggings for our treasure hunting excursion. (and I could use some good finds - my pickin's is getting slim!) Love your spoon holder BTW :)
