Thrifting




















I do love me some new (to me) Pyrex! Flickr tells me that this pattern is called Olive Medallion and was a promotional piece frpm 1964. I've been discovering all these patterns that I never knew existed. While it has been a lot of fun, it has also made me think about that ever growing collection of mine. Thankfully, the local Pyrex ladies and I are planning on renting a booth at a local Sunday Antique Market to tone down a bit of our collections. Those trade nights are fun, but we all end up coming home with new pieces instead of less pieces. Right now we have over 130 pieces in our spread sheet. Even if we don't sell much, it will be a good time. Once we secure the date and which market we're going with, I'll make sure to advertise in case any locals are interested.


















I had an amazing thrifting date with my mom the other day. Lots of vintage sheets, frilly baby dresses, a little Fisher Price, and some sweet records. We dropped off three huge bags of our own donations before heading in, so I haven't felt too bad about bringing so much home lately.

























Something interesting is that lately I've found a few finds actually made from vintage sheets. First there were the two aprons, and now this baby quilt. This one is hand quilted and has a solid pink back. I adore it. I'm thinking I'm going to have to start a vintage sheet sewing project soon. I also adore this knit patchwork blanket made with a variety of varigated yarn. It has never been used, which makes me think it was a baby gift that the recipient didn't use. The maker can rest assured that this will be used and it will be loved!

























Check out Lolie Jane Vintage for some new goodies. There have been quite a few shop updates lately.

What do you think. I received a letter from rolex watches. Customs today and they have confiscated breitling replica sale. I will send you a copy of the notice if you want. Rolex uses only top quality materials, especially for its rolex replica sale collections, so you get a fantastic piece of natural replica watches sale that is both legible and useful. One of the appeals of this watch is the accumulation of rare materials in one product, as it combines 18ct white gold, diamonds, and meteorite, all of which are considered precious materials. While the actual rolex replica uk scarcity of these materials can be debated, one of the purposes of integrating these materials together is to enhance the inherent worth of the watch. How can you get it to me. This is the rolex watches store I have ordered and the other rolex replica watches arrived in just a week. This replica watches sale has been sitting in customs for 12 days.
