Vintage Finds

I’ve been scouring vintage/antique shops & the op shops & I’ve found some lovely things over the past few months. Here’s a few…..

apron made of vintage fabrics

This cute patchwork apron includes a lot of vintage fabrics.

barkcloth

A 3m piece of pretty barkcloth. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet, cushions, bags, a skirt????

cake tin

I picture this tin with a big buttery orange cake in it like my Aunty Joyce used to make.

fan

My Mum & Dad had this exact same fan. It will be good in Lucy on a hot day.

mirror

I couldn’t resist this pretty mirror.

red canisters

These canisters were made in the 20’s & are still in excellent condition.

tablecloth - geom.l

My Mum had this exact same tablecloth!!! It’s probably still buried in her linen press.

tablecloth - pink floral

Another pretty barkcloth tablecloth I’ve bought a few now.

These items are lush, especially the canisters. What are you going to do with them?

Oh goodness you scored! I have a wee little collection of vintage table linens as well. That mirror is terrific.
