Vintage Fascination No. 115

Welcome to another edition of Vintage Fascination.

With limited thrifting time these days I don’t have much to share with your this week; however, I did get out for a little while yesterday morning.

This wooden hanger set me back ta whopping twenty-five cents.  It has splendid vintage typography advertising the Sheraton Hotels & Motor Inns U.S.A., Hawaii, Canada & Overseas.  It has a lovely patina from age.  Since Hawaii is separately listed as if it isn’t a part of the USA, I believe that this hanger predates 1959, the year Hawaii became the 50th state.

These lights are vintage-ish.  I think they are older but probably produced in a vintage style and not truly vintage.  What I thought was G40 style bulbs were actually just light covers.  I plan to use the bulbs covers for craft projects.

Can you believe I found another silver baby cup?  It is the third one in three weeks.  I have to ask myself did I just not see them before?  The mark on this one is very difficult to read.  It is a circle inside a shield.  There are some markings inside the circle but I cannot make them out.  I even tried the tracing method to see the mark with no luck.  My baby cup collection continues to grow.

Counted cross stitch seems to be a lost art but I just couldn’t pass up this pretty little tea towel for only a dollar.  Someone put a lot of work into making a plain white tea towel into something special.  I used to do counted cross stitch (when I could see better) and have a fondness for old samplers and other examples of needlework.

Do you remember when these metal tissue covers were popular in the 60’s?   When I got home the rose embellishment had dislodged itself from the tissue box.  The metal is very dirty so a good cleaning is a must before any painting or repair can take place.  So it goes in the to-do pile.

Thank you for joining me today.

  1. A baby cup!!! I love when I find those.

  2. Love the hanger and baby cup–great finds, Sharon!

  3. Our Hopeful Home says:

    Love it all. Curious what you’ll use the bulbs for…….xo Kathleen Our Hopeful Home

  4. Lovely finds as usual Sharon! Love to see them too. You know I love the Hollywood Regency & looks like that will be an easy repair job. Also love the tea towel…I’m like you…can’t see well enough anymore to do cross stitch so I’m selling off all my supplies. Plus it is a craft activity that isn’t as popular as it once was.

  5. I love the look of those bulbs even if they’re not truly vintage. Looking forward to seeing how you use them. The baby cup is so sweet!

  6. What a great find – a silver baby cup! I need to go thrift in more ! Thanks so much for linking with Let’s Talk Vintage!

  7. Sharon, That is a pretty old hanger. The baby cup is terrific. I love the tea towel. Cross stitch is a lost art. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

    Sharon, the tea towel is so sweet! I use to do a lot of cross stitch as well, now I mainly do embroidery. It has had a come back though and many of my quilt friends are doing it again. Baby cups are always so sweet! I have a weakness for vintage baby things. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
