Fun Finds...And A Great Giveaway...

I had some great finds at the thrift store yesterday!  A vintage group photo is always a find, and with the old canteen I found, makes a perfect vignette...

Look at this great old light fixture...

some test tubes in a rack...

and a fun old book.

This vintage velvet bow and feather once adorned a woman's hat!

A vintage French book always comes home with me...

I love the fun pages...

My favorite finds are these charming vintage velvet fruit pincushions... I think they would be lovely gathered in a bowl or basket... 

and this wonderful old French Flow Blue Bowl!  Far from perfect...but it is mine...

Another wonderful find this week is - the Card Keyper- from Suzanne of Privet and Holly!  She is having a great GIVEAWAY to launch her Etsy Shop and the great card organizer she and her mother created!  She is giving away THREE of them, so your odds are good!  I love mine...keeps all my rewards and member cards organized and right at hand when I need them!  She also includes a special punch and cute charms!  I know you will love it, too!  You can click on the photo below to visit her blog and enter the giveaway!

Until next time...hope your weekend is full of fun finds, too!

  12. You are such a good picker, Linda.

  13. Oh, those test tubes! When I started my first job as a lab tech over 32 yrs ago, we actually used those glass washable test tubes. It seems like a lifetime ago. Now everything is disposable.

    The velvet pincushions are so beautifully faded. Mmmm.

  14. The book about the "Boy Fish" looks ... um ... interesting!
