Vintage Finds - Travel


 Just about everything you see I found at a trash and treasure market yesterday, while on our way to the seaside for a day of frolicking in the waves.

I was a bit dubious that I would find anything as it was 10am and you know that you should be up with the birds to get the good stuff.

So you can imagine my delight when I was able to unearth these goodies. The funny thing is I didn't even realise at the time that they all tend toward the theme of travelling.

I just love vintage quilts and this one was coming home with me, I seem to have a thing at the moment for red white and blue.




The granny rug I found a while ago but I'm showing you today as it blends well with the quilt. 
Both these items are perfect to snuggle into on trips.



Get a load of these super comfy socks hand made in Slovenia, I love them, just great to rest tired feet after walking around all day, even better at $1.00. Bargain!!

  

On those long trips a tin of yummy treats is just perfect with that cuppa when you need a break from the trip.

  

Not really sure how this goes with my traveling theme perhaps a candlelit dinner at the camp site.
 I couldn't resist it charm.






 A must have for would be travelers, pouring over the pages to exotic locations. 
I have several vintage atlases and still collecting, this one was 50 cents.





It even has wonderful photos.



 A travel journal is a must, I don't know about you but I LOVE journals, this one has made made paper with rose petals, never used and for $1.00 I couldn't resist.




 What's in the box? Well, I was delighted to find that the label was correct.



A 1960's kerosene burner used by the boy scouts and in working order. I can't wait to use it, no need to take a thermos, just fire this baby up. I haven't got around to cleaning it yet.

Happy trails.

I love your finds.
The cake tin is gorgeous and the primus stove takes me back to my childhood.
The little journal is beautiful.
Hope your day at the beach was fun.
