Let's Talk Vintage #44: Boardwalk Birthday


Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!

Today I'm sharing my birthday
 cake with everyone!

Another year older means I must
 be getting close to "vintage!"

I will probably be walking along one of New Jersey's oldest boardwalks... one of my favorite things to do!

Thanks so much for coming along... have a piece of cake and enjoy this week's features:

Vickie at Ranger 911 shared this really great shelf
made from a sewing machine cabinet. Just adorable!
Her kitchen is just as sweet!

And Tuula at Thrifty Rebel found these cool wire
stars... do you know what their original purpose was?
I can't wait to see what she does with them.

and who could pass up a love story?
Sandra from her De Oude Huize blog
shares the story of lasting love
between a British soldier and
 his Spanish "fairy."
created this awesome "Eggs and Butter"
kitchen sign... complete with hooks!
Find out what her secret is to 
painting with stencils. 

Now it's your turn. Let's Talk Vintage!

Happy Birthday Jillian! Hope you have a fun day.
My mom had those stars and they were used on her electric burners underneath her glass pyrex coffee pot for protection many years ago.

Happy Happy Birthday! Thank you for hosting. Yes, Diane Lynn is correct that the stars were used under glass coffee pots such as Pyrex. You put them on the burner then the glass on top of it.

Happiest of birthdays to you, Jill, and the hope for many more (until you're antique!). Thank you for the party, now I'm off to check out the purpose for those hangers and that love story.
