Vintage Pillow Cases and a Special Gift

Today is Blue Monday! Thank you to Ms Sally at Smiling Sally's Blog for hosting Blue Monday!

I love vintage pillow cases! One of my favorite Etsy stores , Sage Patch (click here to visit her Etsy Store!) (and here to visit her blog!)has the prettiest vintage pillow cases and vintage finds! She even lets me know before she lists them in her store when she gets one in that she knows I would like!

I was so thrilled to receive these beautiful vintage pillow cases in the mail this week! They are a soft pink with embroidered pink and blue flowers!

But, she sent me a special thank you gift. It touched me so much that she would send this to me! It's a oil painting on canvas........ painted by her mother! I have it hanging on a wreath in one of my guest bedrooms!

What truly wonderful friendship and ladies I have met through blogging and Etsy!
Happy Blue Monday!!

Showing Some RED

Have you ever been walking in a swap meet and you see something that you just gotta have it so bad that you actually start sweating? Well, 3 weeks ago I was walking in a swap meet and this caught my eye and I just had to take him home. I knew he would look perfect in front of our diner in our yard.
He looks like he has been refurbished to a perfect condition! I remember going to Bob's Big Boy Restaurants when I was small and every one had one of these in front of their restaurant!

He is also sitting in front of something else. Something I have never shown before on my blog. My husband collects vintage cars and he is sitting in front of our 12,000 square foot garage that houses almost 50 vintage antique cars.

I am just going to show a few vintage cars inside the garage that are RED

1931 Ford Model AA Tow Truck
1954 Chevy Belair Convertible

1959 Chevy Impala Convertible

1954 Chevy Belair Convertible

1955 Cadillac Convertible

1956 Ford Pick Up Truck

1962 Chevy Impala 409

All these cars are driveable and yes my husband and I take them out and drive them around!

Mosaic Red Cherries Wash Board

This past weekend I was doing some mosaic crafts at my vacation home. I love how this old vintage wash board came out.

I took some old white china plates I bought at the thrift store with little red flowers on it. I made the cherries out of red glass gems and I hand cut the stems and leaves from green and brown stained glass

It looks so cute out in the garden as garden art, but I am not going to keep it, I have put it up on my Etsy Store!.
