Vintage loveliness...
Being married to DH really has some advantages. I have alot of nicnames for him, but the one that he is best known as is "the peddler". He still gets phone calls from people asking him to come to their homes and buy their unwanted "stuff". Sometimes he lets me tag along and boy I'm glad I did this time! I love vintage linens. Especially the ones that are found in this kind of condition. These sets of pillow cases are hand embroidered and crocheted. Aren't they pretty?

The colors aren't really showing up as bright and beautiful as they really are. Love the umbrellas!


Doesn't the dresser scarf look great on my vanity!


This doll is definitely well loved! The woman said it belonged to her mother who passed away at the age of 102. She has a metal head which I haven't seen before and a handmade cloth body and clothing.


Here's a closeup of her head. Kinda scary but cute in a vintage way!


I'll show the rest of my finds later. Parting with these is going to be tough. Have a great day!

The pillowcases are beautiful! Put them on your bed! Love the dresser runner on your vanity. The doll is a real find, I think. Will have to do some research to find out about that metal head. Really unusual!

Hi Kim, good to see you yesterday. Before I started stitching, I used to love doing embroidery. It's a lovely art. Someone spent a bit of time creating your finds. I agree with Judy, pile those pillowcases up on the wonderful new bed.
The doll is cool in a creepy way. Maybe you should put it in the basement :) Just kidding!
