vintage fascination no. 108

There hasn’t been a Vintage Fascination post in a while because I haven’t been thrifting much these days.

Vintage isn’t only a second-hand garment, but apparel with history. These sort of dress is your decision to adorn a unique style and to have a ton of fun and be inventive with the clothes. Click for info to get the additional reward.

Individuality:- It’s practically not possible that you might perceive somebody adorning your equivalent vintage attire. The best aspect concerning Vintage is that you might have something extraordinary and that you don’t need to be worried reasoning that somebody will wear your equivalent dress in a gathering.

Antiquity:- History of fashion is awesome and extremely intriguing, yet there’s in no way like the inclination you obtain when you adorn a vintage gown. Vintage things had a story before coming into your possession. Every vintage item you see will have a past history.

I don’t have a lot to share except for a couple of things that I just can’t wait to show you.

These vintage finds came from a little online shopping at Antique Flea Finds.

The other thing that I just couldn’t resist was this vintage French blue & white enamel house number 67 plaque sign.

There were several house plaques available but I picked this number because it has a personal meaning to me.

When I saw this vintage German stucco cherub angel head with gilded wings it was love at first sight.

She is so pretty and delicate.  You can hang her on the wall but I probably never will.

Please join us for the Snickerdoodle Link Party.  The party is open until midnight Tuesday night.  We would love to see you there.

Jolena over at While I Linger was tired with the look of her living room until she came up with a truly genius idea. She was longing for a fireplace mantel and a place to hang a special painting. So what did she do? She repurposed something she already had thereby making her decorating dreams come true. Stop by There Are Always Two Sides To Everything and find out how she did it.

Janice at Curtains in My Tree is participating in a gift tag exchange and I’m sure the recipient of her tags will be absolutely thrilled–I know I would be! The embellished cards are works of art complete with tiny angel wings and rhinestone and pearl crowns. Spectagular, Janice! 

Who knew you could combine an antique pulley with galvanized buckets and bunches of red berries in such an imaginative way? Well, Robin at Redo It Yourself Inspirations, obviously did in her recent post: Farmhouse Pulley & Bucket Planter. I’m now on the lookout for my own perfectly rusted pulley. Robin, you don’t mind if I borrow your idea, do you?

I love to hear what you think.

welcome to my rustic thanksgiving table this year

For my Thanksgiving table this year I wanted to use some of my brown transferware.There are six of us this year so I’m mixing two different patterns, oops three.

The first four plates I’m using are Spode Woodland – Snipe, Pintail, Quail, and Mallard.

thanksgiving-table-1

The other two plates are Royal Stafford  Thanksgiving china with a colorful turkey.The third brown transferware pattern is the cup and saucers from the Fair Winds pattern by Alfred Meakin.

The Woodland pattern suggests a rustic theme so I couldn’t resist pulling together a lot of natural elements for a centerpiece.

When all the elements fit in well together then the final arrangement becomes flawless. This is similar to the trading program called the BTC Profit. This is amazingly superior to other similar trading programs as all the features are clearly defined and work smoothly together. The automated trading program is recommended by the experts also.

The centerpiece uses lotus blossom pods, bird nests, mini pumpkins,orange gourds, wood slices, and a bundle of wheat stalks.

Of course, had to display my turkey soup tureen.

 september feature of the month

We’re all big fans of image transfer onto furniture, and Kandice’s buffet is simply out of this world. We could all learn a lot from her about painting furniture–she’s an expert. We just adore her French Image Transfer Onto Vintage Buffet. Absolutely gorgeous! 

Christmas is one of the happiest festivals for the Christians and they enjoy the arrival of Santa Claus to their homes with the pretty costume, fabulous and beautiful Santa caps and a bag full of surprise gifts. Christmas is truly an amazing celebration especially for the little ones because they are very keen to wear the new dresses, cut the cakes and get prizes from the old Santa. Nowadays the corporate companies to celebrate all the festivals with the employees in the workplace and the Ethereum code traders also come forward to cherish the Christmas celebration.

A fun Halloween tablescape is just what I wanted in the breakfast area.

Here is what I pulled together.This orange and black square scarf on the table is a thrift store find from last week.  Next, I took four old plastic chargers and spray painted them with black chalkboard paint.

Four small luncheon plates top the chargers with an orange bowl holding a small white pumpkin. Then I added some silverware, napkins, and embellished milk bottles with Halloween straws to the mix.

The place cards are card stock pumpkins I found at Target.  They were ready for adornment.

When you have a keen eye then you can find a beautiful or exclusive object even in a garage sale or at the local thrift store. In the same way, some experts found the super powerful trading system Bitcoin Trader, from the melee of innumerable similar systems. People with wisdom can definitely differentiate between the stuff and pick out the winners.

Now for a candy centerpiece.  Using my rusty crusty canning jar rack I added seven jars of colorful Halloween candy.The chandelier got a little Halloween makeover.  I replaced the regular light bulbs with vintage-inspired light bulbs and added a small jack-o-lantern candle holder to each arm of the chandelier.

  2. JaneEllen says:

    Sharon, it’s all so darned adorable and Halloweenie. Am loving your table runner/scarf, how perfect was that. Getting such a kick out of your incredible table scape but have to tell you glass pumpkins on chandelier is the best decoration of them all. Bet you had so much fun laying all your goodies out, dolling up your dining area.
    Makes me wish we had dining table/room. Miss having dining table/area, this is when I really miss our KY house. Used to have so much fun fixing our house up for holidays and just cause. Too bad couldn’t pack it up to to bring here.

vintage fascination no. 103

The weeks just seem to pass faster and faster with the Holidays looming.

I did get out for some thrifting one day last week so I have a few things to show you.

vintage-cookie-cutters

You know how I love cookie cutters, but I’ve tried not to buy them unless there is something unusual about them. I decided that a set of six bugs qualified as unusual.

This set of six cookie cutters is Wilton’s Bug Buddies includes a butterfly, bee, dragonfly, spider, ladybug, and a caterpillar. My grandson wants to use them to make some bug cookies but I’m not so sure.

When I saw this wooden coat hanger at the thrift store I just couldn’t resist it.  The writing on it is German.  The translation I found on Google: 1 hr Spezialgeschäft für Bekleidung translates to one hour special business for clothing.

There are some special things that are irresistible because of their excellence. Bitcoin Trader is one such trading program that is unparalleled in its niche of digital currency. A simple process coupled with superior technology has helped it to garner a lot of attention from common investors and experts alike. This is completely free and you can join it easily.

The other printing on the other side of the hanger is Dortmund  & Hagen i.W  and they are cities in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany.  It also has Fischer Hettlage Lampe printed on the side with the cities.   The only note I can find is a Fedora for sale on Ebay with a label for Fischer Hettlage Lampe so perhaps it is a men’s store.

vintage-childd-sled

Another sled was not what I needed but this one is so rusty and crusty it could not be left at the store.  It is a child’s size sled with a red arrow.   There was a label on the yoke but it is too faded to read.

I am going to use it for Christmas decor probably with a wreath attached.

vintage-white-bird-cage

I found not one but two bird cages.  First, a small arched white bird cage caught my eye then I saw a small black bird cage.  What luck.  Both were quite reasonable so they both came home with me.  The white bird cage has an aqua green plastic bottom and a handle on top for hanging.

vintage-bird-cage

The black cage has a black plastic bottom, metal sides and a little door with a heart that slides up and down.  There is a handle on top to hang the cage.  Both of these cages are from the 70’s and make charming display pieces.

how to make more spooky ghostly fun

how to make more spooky ghostly fun

My contractor took down the ceiling fan in my sunroom and put it in the construction dumpster before I could remove the four little glass light shades.  So into the dumpster I went to rescue them.

Here is how I turned those four ceiling fan-light shades into more spooky ghostly fun for my grandkids.

Here is where these little ghosts started.  Supply list:  light shades, man’s handkerchief, styrofoam balls, black tag, hole punch, scissors, rubber bands, battery operated tea light, and glue gun.

First, the little ghosts need a head.  A Styrofoam ball fits just fine but needs a cover. Cut a man’s handkerchief into four squares to cover the Styrofoam balls to create the ghost heads.  Then use a rubber band to gather the cloth covering the ghost head.

Using a hole punch cut eyes from black tags (or paper) then cut ovals with scissors for the mouth.  Glue the eyes and mouth on the ghost heads.

Then place the heads on the glass shades to complete the ghosts.

There you have it, quick and easy.

Best things in life are usually not difficult. You just need to use the right techniques and follow the process carefully. For example, Bitcoin Loophole is a trading program that is so easy to use that you will be surprised. You can easily make money using the help of the robotic signals and tips. This proves the point again that there is no need to go for the more expensive things in life and free apps can also be genuine.

I decided to place a host at each plate in my Halloween Tablescape using the ghosts as place card holders. There you have it, quick and easy.Don’t forget that the Vintage Charm party opens at 8:00am EST Thursday, October 27th, we would love to see you there!

vintage fascination no. 102

Welcome to the 102nd edition of Vintage Fascination.

The weather is a bit cooler here hopefully to stay.  I’m so ready for fall to begin.

This set of matching mid-century crown cufflinks and tie tack are by Swank. They are still in the faux brown alligator presentation box. Dark red enamel and gold tone metal with an inlaid rhinestone make these cuff links and tie tack extraordinary. Here is what I found out about Swank in researching this set. Swank founded as the Baer & Wilde Company in 1897 has been making jewelry since the early 1900’s but, the name Swank was not used until the late 1920’s. Most jewelry you find these days that is clearly marked as Swank will be from the 50’s or 60’s. Most Swank jewelry is goldtone metal, and not of precious metals, but the quality in design and build is well-known. Swank still operates today selling men’s jewelry, belts, and personal leather accessories distributed under license for names like Kenneth Cole, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, and Guess.

I love aprons they remind me of my Mother and Grandmother. They both wore aprons at holiday meals but I don’t have a single one of theirs. So when I saw this vintage Christmas half apron with a pocket I just had to take it home It has a border of large peppermint sticks tied with a green ribbon with smaller top and bottom borders of holly.

It is always better to wear an apron while cooking in the kitchen to dodge getting any strain on our dresses. The aprons are also useful to keep the very needed things with us as it is having two large pockets in it. As it is a Christmas time, everyone is busy with baking cakes and I am also very active in doing those things for the wonderful celebrations. Christmas is a special festival for every one of us and even the businessmen who do trading with Crypto Code too leaves their trading works for one day and involve themselves thoroughly in the enjoyment.

The body of the apron ha a pattern of single peppermint sticks tied in green ribbons. It has a patch pocket on the right side.  It’s a keeper.

This isn’t my vintage find but my daughter’s. She came home with this late Friday afternoon and asked me if it was old. I told her that it was and I would like to share it on my weekly vintage post and she agreed. It is a beautiful and elegant square vintage glass vanity box. It has clear beveled glass lid and sides with a mirrored bottom. Surrounded by a delicate brass frame the beveled glass vanity box is quite lovely. It makes a gorgeous display for a special piece of jewelry.

I haven’t found a vintage rolling pin at the thrift store in a while so I snapped this one up as quickly as could be.  It looks like it has rolled out many a pie crust.  This one is joining  my collection

I’ve never seen a tray exactly like this one and I could see lots of possibilities for it.  To top it off it was half-price day at the thrift store so it was quite a bargain too.

Since we partied last week I wrapped up my 31 Day Series for the Nester’s October Writing Challenge.  There were times I didn’t think I was going to make it.

The Christians are very much enthusiastic to celebrate the fun-filled Christmas day and they also rejoice one special day called Thanksgiving day and on that day they distribute prizes and gifts to their loveable ones and thank them for the extraordinary things they have done. This is really great to see and in the special month of December, all of them are busy with their parties even the Crypto Code traders.
