Vintage Goodies

How was your weekend? Mine was so much fun! Lots of my favorite things and my favorite people!

By the way, here's a photo of our Easter table.

(the tea cups, tea set and cake tray were from our vintage hunt the previous day)

I finally got to go out and go thrifting with my mom again. We do that every Saturday but when I got sick, I missed about 3 weekends of it. So when we finally did, I was in thrifting heaven and it was very, very successful! We couldn't fit everything in the car! I wish we had a big truck! We found so many good things that I can't part with but too bad we just can't take them home.

Here are some of the things we bought. More coming later! I have yet to take photos of them.

This is very beautiful. I just love it so much that I can't stop touching it.
and this...
This one is just so whimsical and the texture of the needlework is just amazing. Look at the fluffy tail of the raccoon. I am in love with it! I know you are too!

Our car. You should see the seat behind me and my seat! It was full of bags. We almost couldn't fit ourselves in it.

My mom just loves the iron board! I don't know how much they are in the stores. But this one was $7.

This was one of my most beautiful finds that day. An old trunk. It reminds me of a traveling circus. It's perfect for my son's play room. There were other colors too! But too bad we couldn't fit them in the car. I could already imagine them all stacked up by the bay window. How fun!
I got this for $10. Can you believe it? The outside is slightly beaten up but the interior is perfect! I want one in every room! Why buy plastic containers if you can get this at the same price?

beautiful, isn't it?

More photos will be posted later!

I just checked the email. You're very welcome.It's my way of letting you know that I'm grateful for having known you and that I enjoy your blog so much.

By the way, my mom and I were like cat and mouse all our lives until we stumbled on something that we enjoyed doing together. It really changed everything about the two of us and it made us enjoy each other and it brought us so much closer.
