It's not a word :: I looked it up. But I couldn't wait to show you my vintage thrift finds. Webster's defines vintage as "of old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality" and also "of the best and most characteristic". I like that definition. And guess what? I think I might be a vintager, "one that takes part in a vintage". Anyway, I did a spur of the moment thrift run last week and found some endearing treasures.
I love to put these old pins on the collar of my jean jacket when the weather starts to turn a bit cool. To me, they're like little rays of sunshine.
This book popped out at me. The color and illustrations are so sweet and fun. And do you see that pillowcase? It's baby sized and just delightful!
It's a tad overcast in the garden this morning, but the temperature is in the sixties and feels so nice.
This yellow enamel pot will be a great addition to my gardening collection. It might end up holding a potted plant, or storing some bulbs and seeds. Whatever it's purpose, it makes my heart sing.
Hope you enjoyed my vintage-y show and tell. I just love to share with you.


  1. Oooo that top pin would be perfect for a glass plate garden flower.
    I have been looking for one just like it!
    Love your blog BTW!

  2. Thank you! I'd never heard of a glass plate garden flower before. Hope you find just the right pin for yours. The search is part of the fun, isn't it?
