Happy Monday! Hope that you had a lovely weekend!
On Friday I went to an estate sale where the people had lived for 60 years, and I was hoping there would be some great finds. Well, I did bring home some pretties, but boy were the prices high on most things. It seems that they keep getting higher and higher here in California. How about where you live?
The sweet lady who lived there was a crafter, so I was happy to see all these pretty vintage doilies! Always on the top of my list to get! ;)
I also brought home some lovely vintage lace and cute floral ribbon.
And, these little treasures!
Awhile back a dear friend's mother gave me this sweet vintage appliquéd children's quilt. It has been well loved, and I am thinking it was from the 60's based on the fabrics and colors.
I adore all the face and the balloons are my favorite!
Isn't the kitty just too cute!
A sweet bluebird and a darling little girl with a bow in her hair!
And, oh how cute is this little mouse and his ears!! It is such a sweet quilt and now it will be loved for many more years! And, I was even thinking of how fun it would be to recreate this quilt, or do something similar. So, my thinking cap is on!
Oh, a little side note of something I learned this weekend. As, I was about to soak all the doilies in Oxi Clean, I debated wether I should put that little embroidery piece you see in the first photo in the bowl, because I thought it would bleach out the coloring. Well, I decided to take the chance, and I was right! It bleached out the colors to a white flowers and brown vines. So, I have learned my lesson. How do you soak your vintage embroidered pieces?
Wishing you all a wonderful and crafty week!!
