Here it is - the moment you've been waiting for!
(Actually, I'm probably way more excited than anyone else. haha!)
I'll be listing some vintage items in my etsy shop within the month.
As a sort of New Year's resolution I'm getting rid of superfluous
I thought a give~away on ye olde blog would be a great kick-off for that endeavor.
I've made two lots to win in said give~away.
Lot 1: The Happy Homemaker
Included in this group are
a set of darling vintage pot holders in a little hand embroidered "basket".
4 vintage handkerchiefs.
1 dresser scarf hand embroidered with a lovely basket of flowers.
This is also a vintage item. It feels like linen & has a few very small holes.
2 vintage aprons
1 sensible. (Check out that adorable ric-rac & bias tape design!)
1 not-so-sensible. (Just for looking cute...won't keep you dry or clean at all. But who cares?!)
Little blue creamer,
aluminum(?) bunny mold (Made in England!),
scotty dog cookie cutter,
& dark brown hair nets.
Lot 2: The Happy Handworker
(For the seamstress)
This lovely lot includes
1 - 36x39" piece of vintage fabric with a fun bird motif.
This may be a feedsack...but I'm not sure.
Someone had made it into a laundry bag.
I ripped out the side seam back when I bought it,
but did not rip out the casing at the top.
Has a few small holes, but overall very usable fabric.
1 vintage cushion cover.
This fabric was a little too tropical for my tastes, but maybe it will suit yours!
Scraps of vintage baby flannel.
I'm not a quilter so there's really no sense in me keeping this.
Isn't that bunny the cutest thing?!
This fabric is very soft!
2 vintage magazines:
1 crochet bags pattern book,
1 Delineator magazine from April 1935.
Just look at those wonderful fashion plates!
(I want that polka dot dress!)
1 card of vintage buttons,
& a new repro needle card.
4 vintage patterns:
(Clockwise from top left)
McCalls 6500 * Size 12 * Bust 30 * 1946
Butterick2124 * Size 16 1/2 * Chest 44 * Couldn't find date
Simplicity 5337 * Size Child 4 * Chest 23 * 1963
Simplicity 4178 * One size * Couldn't find date
