A Few Sweet VINTAGE Finds this Week

A very sweet tin with cross-stitch poppies.






A vintage embroidered hand towel for 'Mother.' Still in original packaging.


Cherries and Strawberries on this country farmhouse style cross stitch.



Haven't you always wanted to know how to make delicious cakes with instructions from the 1930's?



Stunning hand stitched supper cloth.



Have a great weekend...well what is left of it. They pass by so quickly these days!

They are lovely finds, Pam. Right up your alley.

That 'Mother' towel is quite amusing.

I'm vowing never to go op shopping again, as I am in the midst of a massive cull!

It must be so nice to go hunting and find lovely things. Are you going to keep these items or remake them into something else to sell?
Enjoy your weekend too.

Hello,
I visited your blog today. Your blog is lovely. I really liked browsing through all your vintage treasures. The vintage towel with the red rose caught my eye, as our blog is called Red Rose Alley. Me and my daughters would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. I have always loved vintage things. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
