This is a shot of the top of my kitchen cabinets, which were actually just redone yesterday and where the bulk of my collection can be found. Vintage cookbooks (okay, a few of these may be from the 80s, but I needed to put them up...my cookbook shelf was overflowing!), my vintage pyrex collection and some great WWII postcards (not authentic, but I love them- this also incorporates my husband's love of history and the military and more importantly is a tribute to my Great Uncle Theodore, a WWII veteran and one of my biggest heroes).
This is my favorite piece of vintage pyrex I own. This print was made in the late 50s, early 60s. So pretty. There are many pieces I would love to own, but for now, this is certainly my favorite!
This was another lucky yard sale find, 50 cents. I'm not 100% sure that it is vintage, but it has an old feeling to it (if that make sense) and I found one with the same style, different print on Etsy saying it was from the 50s, so maybe. I love aprons and this is probably tied to be my favorite (with the autism one my sister in law made me for Christmas!)
Some old records! I love these and wish I could think of something creative to do with them, but for now they just sit in the closet!
This was my newest find. I had recently posted on Freecycle looking for some craft items including scraps of fabric...instead, I was given a HUGE tub stuffed full of fabric and other sewing supplies. I was pleasantly surprised when I found these patterns and laces, dated in the 60s and 70s. Awesome! (Groovy?)
This is just a preview of my collection, which I did not realize was actually so large! I also have some 70s decorating idea books (which let me tell you, are a little wild!), some antique soup bowls, some art prints fro the 1937 national committee of art appreciation, a gorgeous antique tiled table that used to sit on my great great grandparents porch-this is still at my mom's house in Indiana with the possibility of multiple moves I don't want it to get messed up, (both of those were from the previously mentioned uncle)...and a ton of other 'vintage inspired' items as well!
