Vintage finds

Had a lovely day with The Middle Child and and old friend last weekend. A perfect, sunny fall day, and we took in a farmer's market and a local quilt show. What could be better than that?

I scored some pretty cool vintage finds at the market, and had to share. First up, this wooden doll cradle, a steal for just $5!


I offered to give it a coat of paint but The Middle Child was thrilled with it just as it was, and immediately had it in her bedroom for her favorite doll and her doll quilt, of course.


Next up, how neat are these? A set of paper plate holders, shaped like fish, in a sunny bright yellow. How fun for at the lake! Again, only $5 (a good day!).


Lastly, this one is a freebie from my wonderful MIL. I had admired her old Pyrex bowls last time I was at her house, so she surprised me by gifting them to me. She received them as a wedding gift 40 years ago, and they remain in wonderful condition. I was so touched that she shared them with me! Thanks, Mom :)

Those are all fantastic!! Love the cradle. I noticed a beautiful life sized one in the furniture sale pile at the church hall where I do yoga. Hand made, absolutely gorgeous and I thought, how sad the family isn't going to keep it to hand down.

Lovely! I love vintage items. I was planning on attending the Farmer's Market and quilt show too but school, life and the "new to us" cabin intervened! I've only been in school since last January and am already chomping at the bit to get my weekends back! Great blog Kristy, love it!
