Monday Junkin...what will $17.00 buy...

Love the Monday Junkin at Cottage Charm & Family Inspiration
How cute, right?

This woman had butterfly everything! I want to needle felt these into something.

I adore vintage children's clothes. I often will photograph children using my stash of wonders. How cute is the embroidery on this pinafore?

The scent that comes from inside this tin is heavenly...I think it had potpourri in it at one time.

This is the first time I have gotten advertising rulers. One has 13 inches. I collect wooden rulers and yard sticks.

My mom has my grandmother's copy of this cookbook and my sister has claimed it for her own. This copy is in better condition and cost only 5 bucks!

So all this for $17.00...not bad.

And filling the back seat of the Mustang was a 20 pound queen size feather bed that I bought for $10.00....Just right for those cool fall nights. My husband said we will soon need a ladder to climb into bed...I hope so!

  10. Looks like we like a lot of the same vintage lovelies (aka crap to some unkind folks we really don't want to know).I have that book, similar tins and embroidered pieces and I also collect the yard sticks and vintage rulers too. I love those crocheted butterflies too. I came over from French Charming after seeing the lovely necklace you sent her. I am adding you to my blog list and will be visiting again.
