some new treasures and shoppe goodies

 A happy sweet day to you! 
Hope that your weekend was lovely and that you have had a wonderful start to the week! Over the weekend I finally took the plunge and joined Instagram and I am lovin' it! If you are over there you can find me at vintagegreyhandmade
I haven't been able to get out to treasure hunt as much since the new year started, but last week I was able to stop off at a few thrift stores and came home with some lovely and cheap pretties! I was so excited to find a lace curtain as I have been wanting some for awhile. I wish I had them in every window!  
 A pretty vintage sheet with roses and sweet flowers!
 A lovely wooden accordion rack and it is already hung and adorned with a vintage crocheted hanger.
These cute transfers I got on ebay and can't wait to start stitching them up into some sweet tea towels for the shoppe, and maybe one for myself. ;)
And, my new items are all finally in the shoppe! There are lots of new goodies to sweeten up those wintery days!
I thought I was going to take a break from making my vintage tablecloth tea towels, but I just can't resist strawberries and roses! Along with those there are new embroidered tea towels and some pretty vintage fabric and feedsack teas.   
 Some lovely cross-stitched and embroidered rose pot holders.
 Sweet quilted vintage fabric pot holders
 Pretty rose table runners
 Vintagey sweet pillow covers
 Sweet heart coasters! These are a couple of the sets I made, and there are a few more sets which you can find here!
 Some lovely gift tags perfect for giving your gift wrapping a sweet vintage touch! These are a few sets and there are more which you can find here!
I am also offering one more made-to-order sweet kittens clothespin bag using this pretty picnic green floral reproduction print which you can find more about it here! I will be working on some new clothespin bags that will be in the shoppe soon, too!
Well, I am looking forward to catching up with you and seeing what you have been up to!
Wishing you all a most lovely and crafty week!! xo

  20. I love your curtains! I have been looking for some vintage ones for a while. My grandmother had them in every window and in the summertime the sea breeze would blow right through them. Precious memories. Love all of your handmades. This post has me dreaming of summer :) Have a wonderful night, Holly

  24. Goodness Heather, you have been a very busy little bee. Everything is so beautiful! I must say, I love Instagram, too. So easy to just post a photo and a short blurb and get instant feedback. I do still love blogging and have made so many lovely friends. Just don't always have the time. Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  25. Love the image you've used at the top of this post ... I have a 'thing' about waspishly curtained windows.

    I started out on Instagram with great enthusiasm but it's become just one more thing to keep up with ... hope you fare better.

  26. You make such beautiful things! Wish I could order one of everything!
