Vintage Finds

Where does my time go? I seem to be so busy these days, that I haven't even had time to post and wander amongst my favourite blogs. Now that can't be good, I have missed seeing what's been going on.

I did however manage to get to a local garage sale where I picked up some vintage goodies.


I originally left this case behind as I do have Ah! Hm! several. However once I got home it kept calling to me, so I went back and it was still there, it was MINE.

This is no ordinary case.


Look! It's for picnics. Now all I have to do it search for sweet vintage goodies to go in it.



These Tupperware cups will not be for the case, but I liked the 70's colours, they also come with lids. The teacups are Kingsley-ware from the 50's.



Lastly single and double chenille bedspreads.

For more vintage goodies, pop over to Sophies.

I just LOVE those bedspreads - so pretty! Apart from the obvious vintage decorating and craft value they are just so nostalgic! Totally wishing I could stumble across ones like those.

I have a set of those Tupperware cups too! With their little built in coasters. I have red, yellow, green and orange ones. Fun stuff! My kids use them to drink in everyday.
