The soft, out of focus glow of my great grandmother's ceramic Christmas tree. It's on display in my grandfather's home where we are visiting this weekend. Once again I'm grateful to be spending time with family this holiday season.  #homefortheholidays #vintagechristmas #ceramicchristmastree #midcenturychristmas #therustytypewriter
I see a magical santa themed display taking shape among this disastrous mess. Can you see it yet? Asking for a friend 😂. Sharing for #treasuresandtrinketstuesday , thanks for the tag friends and for featuring my angels from last week! #vintagesanta #vintagechristmas #unbreakableornaments #santablowmold #vintagechristmasornament #aluminumtree #therustytypewriter
Miniature bottle brush trees + ironstone butter pats and molds = a match made in heaven! These tiny baby trees aren’t vintage but they are pink and purple so I’ll forgive them. Also, we just cut down our Christmas tree. It’s bigger, badder, and smells even better than last year’s tree. I can’t wait to decorate it. And that’s a happy Wednesday folks! #ironstonewednesdays #ironstonecrushin #ironstonebutterpats #ironstonemold #vintageironstone #bottlebrushtrees #vintagebottlebrushtree #vintagechristmas #therustytypewriter

I've never shared my pin collection for #magpiemonday and as I'm adding quite a few to the numbers this week it seems only fitting. Look closely and you can see where I've been all this time.  Whenever I travel, I make it a point to grab a pin to commemorate the visit. Last week I had the intense pleasure of visiting my ancestral homeland in Ireland. We were tourists, but for one afternoon we journeyed to a small inland town called Brosna. It was there that my great great grandfather O'Rourke was born on Main Street and buried in the churchyard just behind it. We met many cousins and their families. It is a visit I will carry in my heart forever. #icollectpins #pins #therustytypewriter

It's officially 2017! A new year, a fresh start, a blank page.  I'm ready for a house cleanse, some travel adventures, and to see what the new year brings. Happy 2017 everyone! #vintageangel #januaryangel #thriftstorefinds #happynewyear #therustytypewriter
The gray skies have me dreaming of the rows upon rows of sweets in Honeydukes. We spent the weekend at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and it was the stuff of legends. I'm having withdrawal and trying to get over it by watching series 4 of Ripper Street, which has Matthew Lewis in it. I'll let you know if it helps. #wwohp #honeydukes #hogsmeade #universalorlando #lemondrops #wwhp #wizardingworldofharrypotter #therustytypewriter #vivalavignettetuesday
The holidays are such a busy time. I always have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the little things. And by little things, I mean these totally adorable tiny putz houses at my mother in law’s house. I’ve never seen a church quite the same as the bigger one she has, and the two smaller ones have loops for hanging. Someday I’ll do a tree entirely with putz houses. Maybe this year, since the tree is still bare 🙈😂🎄. #putzhouse #putzhouses #putzvillage #vintagechristmas #vintageputzhouse #christmasputz #therustytypewriter

My collections as a child were exactly what you'd expect. First seashells, then abandoned keys, and finally a large container of early American coins from my great-great-uncle. Back then I wasn't a master of display, all of these collections lived in jars or boxes, in drawers or on dressing tables.  But they grew my love for collecting.

Nowadays my displays are a tad more refined (although I still stick things in drawers) and my collections are bigger and harder to hide.  The red Corona 4 was the first in this collection. It came from eBay with a disclaimer that the carriage wouldn't return. It was simply missing a screw. From there I grew my typewriter garden to include other makers, typefaces, and body styles. This is about half of what I have, but they are my favorites (shh don't tell the 85 lb pink Royal office model!) I love these machines for their simplicity and elegant design.  And yes, I use them!

This tiny soap dish has a tale to tell. Once upon a time my grandmother gave me a lovely ironstone soap dish filled with beautiful rose shaped soaps and bath fizzes.  It lived with me on a bedroom shelf in four different states. I loved it and it loved me back for I always made sure it had pretty soaps to hold. Fast forward to Maryland, where 25% of everything I owned became a casualty of careless movers. Including my ironstone dish 😢. There is a happy ending however. About two weeks after I gave up and threw it away (it was literally in smithereens) I found a new dish to love at the flea! Same maker, with a tray and a handled lid. I like to think grandma sent it my way. And now my soap will always have a home. #ironstonewednesdays #vintageironstone #ironstonesoapdish #vintagesoapdish #scottishfinesoaps #movingsucks #familyheirlooms #ironstone #therustytypewriter

We have a lot of traditions in my family. Sometimes one of the hardest things is changing your traditions when you get married and your new in laws have different traditions. I’ve been pretty lucky to have in laws that are cool with us being at my parent’s for Christmas Eve, and spending Christmas Day with them. Today is the second time for a new tradition with my MIL. I’m helping her make her large batches of Christmas cookies. Today was chocolate chip oatmeal and peanut butter blossoms. Tomorrow is the real work though. We will make upwards of 12 dozen sand tarts by the end of the day. It’s fun and a great way to spend time getting to know my MIL better since we lived far away for the first 5 years of our marriage. Have you started any new traditions lately? What about those you’ve had forever? Share with us for #Happy😊Hoarder, there’s still time! Post until midnight PST! #vintagemeasuringcups #aluminummeasuringcups #vintagekitchen #christmascookies #familytraditions #therustytypewriter

This week for #Happy😊Hoarder we are asking to see your holiday best! Bring on your ornaments, your holiday traditions, heirlooms, your holly jolly favorites, and share them with us! Today I’m helping my mother decorate her home, a tradition we’ve upheld for the majority of my life. These kneehugger elves find a different perch each year. I love their happy faces and striped candy cane leggings. Passed down to my mother, from her mother, someday they’ll join the few happy fellows that live with me and the merry bunch will party each December. Have you shared yet? Remember you can share any time through Sunday! Let’s see that Christmasy goodness! #kneehugger #vintagechristmas #kneehuggerelf #kneehuggers #vintageholiday #kneehuggerelves #therustytypewriter

It’s a late, sad little #FestiveFridayVintage post for me, but that’s because I’ve been out spending time with family today. A holiday lights trolley tour, followed by cookies and “jingle juice” has made this a festive Friday indeed. These are the few figural lights I have collected. I think the Santa, snowman, and angel are very old based on the plastic they’re made of. Most of these still light as well! #antiquechristmaslights #figuralchristmaslights #santabulb #snowmanbulb #vintagechristmas #therustytypewriter

This year was this first time I found this type of Bradford ornament. They have a figure on one side (deer, candles, angel) and say Merry Xmas on the other. I think it’s interesting that they have the shortened version of Christmas since that is so hotly debated now a days and these are vintage! The deer is my favorite. Obviously. #vintagechristmas #bradfordunbreakable #unbreakableornaments #vintagechristmasornament #bradfordornaments #showusthevintage #therustytypewriter

The week of super fabulous, totally amazing, mind-blowing vintage Christmas finds continues!!! These pink faced spun head angels have spiky chenille bodies with mercury glass hands and feet, aluminum papered wings, hot pink songbooks and I found AN ENTIRE BOX. This week is nuts.

You guys, I’m freaking out. I just hit the antique sheep MOTHERLOAD. There are 7 stick-legged wooly-coated little guys in this Santa mug. For 25 cents each 😳. I’m dying. Someone come celebrate with me!!!!!! #sheepparty #antiquesheep #antiquenativity #antiquewoolsheep #vintagesheep #vintagenativity #igotalltheotherpeoetooevenjesus #therustytypewriter #putzsheep
The coffee before the glitter storm. Visions of aluminum dancing in my mug. Must power up for a long day of festivities! I’m still working on decorating, cleaning, and organizing simultaneously and I definitely need all the caffeine I can get. Our neighborhood tree lighting is this evening 🎄🚒🎅🏻, and I can’t wait! I’m supposed to bring cookies. We’ll see how that goes 🤦🏼‍♀️.

Dana @thisoldcapehouse tagged me for #Happy😊Hoarder this week and the theme is REALITY SWIPE 😂. I love this theme because, truth time, my house is perpetually a mess. Yes it gets its sh*t together every once in a while, but every time you turn your back the season changes and it’s time to change decor. Again. So in honor of that, here is my most happy stack of boxes. Aluminum trees about to go up, and my newly acquired color wheel (🤩🎄🎉) that I’m psyched to use this year. Swipe to see the wreckage of the rest of the living room 🙈 and trust me when I say it’s better than it was yesterday!! Last photo is boxes that are off to goodwill, so I’d say that’s a good day’s work. Whew! #aluminumtree #colorwheel #vintagecolorwheel #vintagechristmastree #pompomsparkler #aluminumpompomtree #originalboxes #vintageadvertising #typography #therustytypewriter

It happens every year. I go a bit mad whilst decking the halls and it’s actually kind of fun! How fabulous is this bottle brush wreath I got from Elizabeth @shop_maeandmoe? It’s bigger than my head and she still has one available!

It’s time for another #FestiveFridayVintage! It’s my favorite day of the week for IG sharing. Today I’m pulling out more Christmas and my living room is an absolute wreck 🙈. It always gets worse before it gets fabulous right? I’ve been having visions of typewriters dancing in my head, decked with Shiny Brites and garland galore. So here is my 1928 Corona 4 in all its holly jolly glory!Anyone else dream about their posts? 😂 #vintagetypewriter #coronatypewriter #corona4 #pineconeelves #pineconedwarf #mercuryglassgarland #glassgarland #vintagechristmas #vintageornaments #therustytypewriter

Vintage Shiny Brite ornaments light up my life this time of year. I’ve only been collecting them for a few years since I found out they existed, but I’ve managed to gather quite a collection. I don’t have any memories of these on my family tree (although I’m told one grandmother did own some) but I’m making new memories with my own small family each year. We have other family traditions like grandma Woestman’s sugar cookie recipe, and Grandma Goodman’s Christmas Eve shrimp cocktail party, that we celebrate every year. A new favorite tradition of mine is breaking out the aluminum trees, and that will happen this week. For now, I think Shiny Brites as lightbulbs will do just fine. #showusthevintage #vintagefresh #shinybrite #shinybrites #vintagechristmas #vintageornaments #bottlebrushtrees #christmastraditions #familytraditions #alabasterlamp #therustytypewriter

It’s time for #ironstonewednesdays and I haven’t played in a while. Do you know I’m pretty sure these tureens were always intended for ornament storage? No one actually puts soup in these. No way. In fact, when I took the lid off the oval one, the rhinestone eyed reindeer was inside staring me down 😂. So you see, I’ve actually been planning this all year with my ingenious (completely forgotten) storage solutions. #vintageironstone #vintagechristmas #vintageornaments #shinybrite #ironstonetureen #shinybrites #therustytypewriter #ironstonecrushin #celluloidanimals #celluloiddeer

I don’t know if I’ll ever get over the thrill of finding mercury glass garland in the wild. It’s a look, double-take, then double check (for plastic) and then the snag. Most times this is followed by some version of a happy dance. I’m okay with being the crazy Christmas lady, if it means I get all the vintage Christmas goodies!  #mercuryglassgarland #glassgarland #vintagechristmas #vintageornaments #noplastic #therustytypewriter
It’s Monday and I’m still working to break the habit of posting a collection. So here’s one West German glass bird clip. The others haven’t flown from their nest of boxes just yet, so this little guy is representing for now. Happy Monday! #vintagechristmas #glassbirdornaments #vintagetinsel #vintagebirdclip #vintagechristmasornament #therustytypewriter
Everything is better in miniature right? Ok maybe not better. Cuter? Maybe I’ll just go with holly jolly. I mean, what could be more merry than miniature glass picks, to go in your miniature McCoy pitcher, and a miniature plastic deer to top it off??? These little guys are are small, but together they make a mighty festive display. Sunday’s are for antiques. And faffing.

This week is all about decking the halls, fa la la la-ing, and general holiday dodah-age. As soon as I recover from my turkey induced stupor that is.

The only kind of Black Friday finds I wanted to score today: #FestiveFridayVintage! Candy canes, candles, corsages, oh my! The boot adorned with tiny glass candles is my favorite find today.

We’ve had one Thanksgiving yes, what about second Thanksgiving? This year we’re actually attending three of the glorious big meals. One happened on Saturday (it was epic), one will be Wednesday evening, and the big shabang on Thursday of course. Luckily Thanksgiving food is delicious, and pie is my favorite dessert so I can’t complain. How many turkey day meals are you attending this year? #vintagegurleycandle #thanksgivinggurleycandles #gurleyturkey #gurleypilgrims #gurleycandles #therustytypewriter

One of these things is not like the others, and there’s a reason for that. I live in a pretty old neighborhood. Designed in 1880, trees planted around that time, not much forethought given to power lines and such. So when we get weather (any weather really, rain, wind, snow) trees fall on lines and transformers blow. This is how I came to be turkeyless. See, somewhere in my house is a box with four Napco turkeys. And I was searching the basement for said box, when darkness came. But it’s okay because Santa is saying to me “Hey. You have to eat all this leftover pie now. Get to it!”. Hope you’re having a warm, power-filled Sunday! #vintagesanta #vintagelinens #vintageteatowel #vintagechristmas #leftoverpie #breakfastpie #pumpkinpie #santasays #therustytypewriter

@Regrann from @the_rusty_typewriter -  Everyone knows the best kinds of people are the kinds who collect vintage Christmas all year round. I mean, that’s how you choose your friends right? Well the king @jesselauzon and queen @megillicutti of vintage are back with #festivefridayvintage today! If these two have taught me anything (and they have, trust me, 🙌🏻 hello muses) it’s that nothing goes better together than vintage Christmas and McCoy pottery. Amiright? So here are the additions to my Czech glass ornament collection. There are actually only a few more than this stored away (I had much keener eyes this year 👀) but my favorites are the ones I just found last week. They feature a band of glass called a “bangle” and are shaped like a teacup and a sewing wheel. I can’t wait to decide what tree to hang these on! Who else is playing along today?

@Regrann from @the_rusty_typewriter - Everyone knows the best kinds of people are the kinds who collect vintage Christmas all year round. I mean, that’s how you choose your friends right? Well the king @jesselauzon and queen @megillicutti of vintage are back with #festivefridayvintage  today! If these two have taught me anything (and they have, trust me, 🙌🏻 hello muses) it’s that nothing goes better together than vintage Christmas and McCoy pottery. Amiright? So here are the additions to my Czech glass ornament collection. There are actually only a few more than this stored away (I had much keener eyes this year 👀) but my favorites are the ones I just found last week. They feature a band of glass called a “bangle” and are shaped like a teacup and a sewing wheel. I can’t wait to decide what tree to hang these on! Who else is playing along today? I’ll tag some friends.

Are you in withdrawal from all the vintage Christmas goodness shared yesterday for #festivefridayvintage? Well me too. Luckily there’s a new holiday hashtag to play and Saturday’s the day! Joanna @vintagebaby63 is hosting #hohohoitsavintagechristmas and wants to see all your Christmas best. Luckily the girls over at #Happy😊Hoarder wanted to know what’s on my table, so I’m getting a two for one deal! This is my coffee table and it’s covered in recent Christmas finds. Sugar bells, mercury glass picks, and gnomes that need some help (one is missing his pine cone 🙀) are all hanging out until decoration commences. Would you believe all of this except the large sugar bells and the candle wreath came out of Savers bags? Gotta love it. Where do you hunt for vintage Christmas? #vintagechristmas #christmasgnomes #pineconegnome #sugarbells #vintageornaments #vintagechristmasornaments #therustytypewriter

EDIT: I’ve been off IG for a few weeks and just found out MM is no more. I’m sad and confused. I guess that’s just one more reason to be excited for FFV this week!

I’m going for actual magpie for my #magpiemonday post this week. These are some of my favorite smalls collected over the last few months. Two lead toy soldiers that hopefully were never played with by children (wishful thinking, I know), a Shaeffer golf pencil on gold filled chain, a gorgeous glass inkwell with abalone lid, a green curtain tie back, a rhinestone roadrunner pin, a tiny brass compass with mother of pearl inlay and a glass front, and a rhinestone dress clip featuring a bouquet of flowers. The compass and inkwell are two of my favorite small finds ever (well that aren’t Christmas!) and I’ll share closer looks of them on my stories. I hope your questing is as fun and fruitful as mine has been lately. #fleamarketfinds #shaefferpen #trifaridressclip #trifarijewelry #leadtoysoldier #travelinkwell #curtaintiebacks #vintagecurtaintiebacks #golfpencil #vintagesmalls #therustytypewriter

The fine folks of #Happy😊Hoarder want to see how our collections are contained, constrained, controlled, and corralled! I shared my vintage card catalog for the very first hoarder story, and today I’m showing you what I keep inside those skinny, long drawers: angels of the month! My girls (and the occasional fellow!) stay in here until it’s there month and they can come out to play. Well. Except for Miss March. Mom decapitated her 😱 and she needs a little fixing up. How do you keep your collections contained? Are you sneaky or do you leave them in plain sight? Happy Sunday! #angelofthemonth #leftonangel #collections #collecting #collectioncontainers #vintagecardcatalog #cardcatalog #therustytypewriter

Sometimes the flea market provides an instant collection of something you thought you'd never see. These miniature ironstone molds are just about the most adorable little things! I've seen them here on IG before and they seemed elusive, magical, and expensive. Thankfully the flea market disagreed and sent these three tiny treasures my way so I could start a new collection and not take up too much space! Happy hump day! #ironstonewednesdays #vintageironstone #ironstonemold #ironstone #vintageironstonemolds #miniaturemolds #therustytypewriter

Christmas every day! Who's with me?! Alright, I know, it won't be as special if we have it all the time. But yesterday the weather was so chilly, the leaves are flying off my trees, and literally the only vintage I want to buy right now is CHRISTMAS. So for this #magpiemonday entry I present these fabulous paper tabbed, war-era, unsilvered ornaments. Only two paper tabs broken in the set (I have all twelve but 9 just looked right for this) but I'm thinking of putting them in a jar for display. I'm too nervous to hang them 🙈. The family clearly used these for many years beyond the war as evidenced by the real metal tinsel stuck to a few ornaments and littered inside the box.  I can't wait to use them in my Christmas displays this year. Come on December!!! #vintagechristmas #vintageironstone #unsilveredchristmasormaments #vintagechristmasornaments #shinybrite #vintageornaments #estatesalefound #gimmeallthechristmas #bringondecember #therustytypewriter

Sunday is for antiques, and since today also happens to be the first day of October, that also means Extravaganza at #Renningers! It was a freezing (39 degrees, close enough!) and slow start to the morning but we came out with some great treasures. I was thrilled to pick up a Shenandoah pennant, among others, and my parents were thrilled with egg sandwiches at the cafe! Me, I went for the pie. Obviously. Happy hunting friends! #vintagepennants #souvenirpennant #mccoypottery #vintagemccoy #putzhouses #wildputzhouses #nemadji #fleamarketfinds #therustytypewriter

I'm taking an oil painting class over the next few weeks. The teacher asked us to bring in a few items for a still life, but gave no guidelines or suggestions. Does this say hot chocolate and pumpkin carving to you? It does to me. At least, it does with vintage flair 🎃! Fall is here and I'm embracing it with open arms.  Ps, I'm also desperately seeking more silver knives. That's my one and only!! #vintagestilllife #vintageironstone #vintagesilverware #vintageflatware #stilllifewithpumpkin #stilllifepainting #ihavenoideawhatimdoing #itfoundmejunk #therustytypewriter

When Susie @junk.beaucoup tagged me to share for #RustNeverLiesTuesday my mind immediately thought of this metal top I saved a few weeks back. It was in a junk pile at the flea market, passed over due to the sad decay of rust and time. Luckily I saw past those things and decided to bring it home. With swirling airplanes and a patriotic star on the bottom it just screams post-war to me, but without a maker I'll probably never know. It is marked USA, so it was made to last, even if some child in the past forgot it outside in the rain one day and left it to the elements. Scroll to see the star and the great shape of this fun little toy. It will be part of my 4th of July decorating next year for sure!  #treasuresandtrinketstuesday #rustyandcrusty #americanmade #vintagetoys #vintagemetaltoy #vintagetop #metaltop #americana #vintagetoy #therustytypewriter

There are all types of people. Type A, type B, introvert, extrovert etc. Me? I'm a type type 😉. I'm drawn to typography like a moth to a flame. It's part of the reason I started collecting manual typewriters. It's also the reason I have hundreds of books, random papers, cards, stamps, and pieces of old advertisements. This Olivetti Lettera 22 looks a little worse for wear, but it still types like a dream. It weighs under 9 pounds, has a sleek low profile, and was favored by many famous writers in the mid 20th century. Now this slightly battered Italian beauty will help me write letters, cards, and notes! As a type of bonus (seriously I can't help myself) a whole box full of postal stamps with the names of the towns I grew up in! Millersville, Lancaster, Columbia, Bird-in-Hand and more. I couldn't resist a little nostalgia! Are you a type type? Share your type for #happy😊hoarder before Sunday ends!

I'm clinging tightly to the last of the summer colors. Soon I'll break out the autumn decor in full, but for now I'll take blues, greens, pinks and #ironstone! Everyone knows it goes with everything! I found this coffee pot to match the sugar and creamer I got a while back. Now I just need the tea pot to complete the set! How's your Wednesday? #vintageironstone #ironstonewednesdays #bluenordic #johnsonbrothers #dahlias #balljars #therustytypewriter
Bibliophile: a person who collects or has a great love of books. This pretty much sums me up in a nutshell. I was actually a terrible reader in the beginning, requiring extra reading lessons that took place inside the art closet. I tried to read Sheep in a Jeep over and over while constantly being distracted by the giant rolls of colored paper on the shelves. Luckily, around third grade, my reading skills started to turn around and ever since then I refuse to let go of a book. And I mean that literally (<- see what I did there? 🤓). I have many bookcases in my home and two of them exclusively contain books from my youth. Everything from Ramona Quimby to Animorphs, it's all there. Then you have the teen reading, and eventually you'll come upon my college textbooks including titles like Zoology and Ocean Circulation (don't try reading Physiological Ecology, you'll get a headache!). Once I started junking, books became a natural choice. I found they are great for decorating, have fun colorful covers, and sometimes hilarious texts (I'm looking at you Self Knowledge Companion to Know Thyself aka Sex Manual). My favorite books however, are my collection by JRR Tolkien. His stories are timeless, adventurous, even magical despite his dislike of magic. This 1966 full jacket copy of The Hobbit is a personal favorite. I read the story a few times a year and it reminds me to step out of my comfort zone. And to buy more books! Thanks for the tag Dana! Say hello to the #happy😊hoarder team and share your page turning story before Sunday night! #vintagebooks #tolkien #thehobbit #bookcovers #hubbyphotographer #mybookcollection #oldbooks #antiquebooks #vintagebook #therustytypewriter #readallthebooks #ilovereading #bibliophile #readingislife #bibliophileforlife #gimmeallthebooks

The evenings here have reached a beautifully cool 60 degrees with low humidity and enjoyable little breezes. This signals two things: 1. The approach of fall, leaves changing, sweaters, campfires, and s'mores. 2. THE BUGS GO AWAY!!! We have had some vengeful mosquitoes this season that severely affected the enjoyment of our fire pit. I refuse to spray though because I've had neighbors in the past do that, and had dead birds turn up 😭. Anywho, who's looking forward to some s'mores?!? This is my #fireking mixing bowl with spout that I scored at an estate sale about a year ago. More than one person tried to talk me into letting them buy it, but I wasn't letting go of her for anything! Now all we need are some chocolates and we can have s'mores galore! Sharing for #FireKingFridays and #frugalfridayfind. Have you shared with #showusthevintage yet? I'm guest hosting this week so don't forget to post before Saturday night! #firekingmixingbowl #firekingbowl #vintagekitchen #whosreadyforfall #allthesmores #vintagefireking #therustytypewriter

This week's #Happy😊Hoarder theme is travel! I love to travel and can never resist bringing home a souvenir, no matter how trivial. A few years ago I also decided to start collecting vintage pennants from places that my husband and I have traveled to. It started with Washington DC, where we visited the Smithsonian museums early in our relationship. Then I found the Boy Scout Jamboree one and I couldn't resist even though we'd never been to one together. Finally we have the PA Grand Canyon, which we just visited for our 5th wedding anniversary. I think there may still be one or two more that got misplaced during our move last year (most likely caves like Luray and Crystal). These aren't something I come across all the time and some specific locations can cost a pretty penny online, but when they're reasonable I add them to the collection so we can remember the great trips we've had. They hang in the small wall space between our upstairs rooms (seriously, the Boy Scout one is covering a lamp switch) so we can enjoy them daily. On the to-find list are places like Yosemite (where a bear snuffled at our tent at 3am), Lancaster (because we're from there but all I can find are reproductions), and Shenandoah (because we both love fall and Skyline Drive). Have you shared any travel mementos yet? Thanks always to Dana and the hoarder judges! #showusthevintage #vintagepennant #feltpennant #vintagesouvenir #vintagepennants #souvenirpennant #vintagesouvenirs #therustytypewriter

I'm a junque magnet! I'll readily admit it. Weird stuff follows me home all the time. But this is the first time I had a chance for creepy doll heads to jump in my basket. There were arms. There were legs. There were bodies. But I went straight for the heads 😂. They all have such interesting faces, even the one whose eyes have long gone. My favorite is the kewpie with no arms because she has mercury glass bead earrings and a matching necklace. These ladies are just passing through. They'll find new homes soon, as I have a hard time sleeping with all their creepy stares! So glad to have Susie @junk.beaucoup and the junk band back for #itfoundmejunk! What crazy stuff are you sharing this week? #vintagedolls #vintagedollheads #creepydollhead #vintagedoll #kewpie #vintagekewpie #creepyjunk #dollheads #bisquedoll #celluloiddoll #therustytypewriter

My #magpiemonday collection this week is ball jars, but they're currently full of zinnia bouquets! We visited a cut your own farm over the weekend and had a blast. We enjoyed a sunflower maze, bees, butterflies, and grass fed cows milk ice cream! Plus a whole bundle of these beautiful zinnias for a great price. I decided to make ball jar bouquets because they look great placed together for one large bouquet, or you can split them up and have one in every room! Happy Monday friends! #vintageballjar #vintageapron #cutyourownflowers #freshcutflowers #zinnias #rockhillorchard #balljars #flowerarranging #flowerarrangement #floralarrangement #therustytypewriter

When I was young my grandmother would take my brother and I to the park and teach us to play tennis. We were awful and at the age where we just wanted to hit each other with the balls, but she was insistent. It was good exercise and made us too tired to argue when she dropped us back at home 😂. Badminton has always seemed like miniature tennis to me. When I saw this old set it immediately called to mind those tennis lessons and how much I always secretly loved them. It was only $7. Also there are shuttlecocks. This set still has all the original pieces including the net, shuttlecocks, and rackets. If you look closely you can see that the previous owner wrote her name in pencil on the wooden handles. Thanks for the memories Margie.

This week is blowing right past me. A busy work schedule combined with an upped effort to workout regularly 😝 has me feeling like tomorrow can't really be Friday can it?! I didn't want to miss the opportunity to share for #showusthevintage though! This small gold mirror is fresh from the thrift. You can tell because I barely bothered to remove the sticker 😂. It was definitely a snag moment, its thin gold frame was peeking out from behind some framed prints, it needed to be unearthed! I guess it's time to get ready for the weekend now. Yay? 🙄 #timeflies #mccoypottery #vintagepottery #usapottery #vintagemccoy #thriftscorethursday #therustytypewriter

We just finished up a weekend in Ocean City MD and I find myself missing the beautiful shades of blue. The sky, the sea, the waves on the sand, they call to me. I took a look around for something to share for #magpiemonday and spied my bottles. I got most of these when I lived in Pensacola and they instantly called to mind those shades I was craving. So there you have it, my blue bottle collection to cure the Monday blues! #vintagebottles #vintagecocacola #bottlecollection #bluebottles #vintagebluebottles #therustytypewriter

This dilapidated pie safe is one of my most favorite thrifted pieces of furniture in the house. It's my #FrugalFridayFind because it only cost $10 and it's my entry for #Happy😊Hoarder because boy does it come with a story! 
In Georgia the estate sales were often more than 30 minutes from my house, but one time a sign showed up right around the corner! I was so excited until I entered the house and saw that it was a literal nightmare. Full on hoarding and several animals that must've been locked inside had turned the house into a complete dump. Luckily the garage was full of stuff that escaped the worst of it and there were 4 outbuildings to check out. A small shed covered in brambles and vines looked promising. It had cool hand painted signs in front of it so I waded in. This shed was stuffed so full you could only stick your head in! But directly to the right of the door was something with beautiful white and blue chippy paint. I had to have it. The estate sale guys helped me dig it out (literally!) and put it in my car. I think they thought I was insane since it had clearly been chewed on by several rodents and had a destroyed door, but I love it. I've always intended to DIY a replacement door. It's been suggested that I simply remove the other one, but it's so beautiful with its cage wire I just can't do it! So I present to you my DIY someday piece, the pie safe from hoarder palace! What are you sharing this weekend? Thanks to Dana and the hosts! #piesafe #vintagepiesafe #vintagefurniture #handmadefurniture #chippywhite #countryfurniture #thrifted #therustytypewriter

Some days the thrift blows my mind. Thursdays are 25% off your purchase so I usually swing by on my way home from work. Last week was a bust. This week? A treasure hunt. First the 444. Well, I don't need that. Then the next aisle over, the 441. Ok, if I can find the cradle, I'll get it. Sure enough, over in the brass, voila! And so, a complete 1959 promotional Gold on Ivory (aka scroll) Chip and Dip set now resides with me. For $3.99. Sometimes you have to break the no more Pyrex rule. #showusthevintage #pyrexjunkie #pyrexia #pyrexlove #promotionalpyrex #pyrexchipanddip #thriftythursday #pyrexcollector #timeforaparty #therustytypewriter #thriftstorefinds

I don't pat my butter. Does anyone anymore? It might seem silly then, that I was overjoyed to find these #jgmeakin butter pats at the thrift! Well, if you must know, I put my used tea bags on them. And yes, it's because I secretly hope they'll get pa-tea-na! (I'm lame and I know it 😂!) #ironstonewednesdays #vintagebutterpats #ironstone #butterpats #ironstonebutterpats #backstamp #vintageironstone #therustytypewriter
Do you guys ever hit the thrift before work? I tried the flea on Saturday and the booth I usually go to opened 40 minutes late 😱. The place is always packed to begin with but with only 10 minutes to shop (and still make it to work on time) it became an all out smash and grab for me. Pushing, pulling, swiping, I was a quick pickin' maniac. This tiny #shawneepottery vase became mine that day. It's miniature (about 3 inches tall) and my favorite color of pottery (or anything, let's be real 😂).

Simple tubed botanical specimens and chemical reaction cards for #magpiemonday.  I volunteer at the National Aquarium on Monday mornings and it always gets me back in a science mood. Can you tell?

What's Cookin' IG? Well truth be told, I'm more of a baker. Dana and friends asked what I'm hoarding in my kitchen and the answer is green gadgets, bowls, and flower sifters! I have more sifters than any baker would ever need but they're all too rusty to use 😂. I just can't pass up anything with a fabulous painted wood handle! A few months back my mom actually scored the green gadgets for me at her neighborhood yard sale. A masher, a slicer, a beater, a flipper, a strainer, a baller, you name it we have it. In green! The sad truth is the only item that gets used in this picture is the tea towel 🙈. But they sure look great! What's hiding in your cupboards? #Happy😊Hoarder #vintagekitchen #floursifter #vintageteatowel #bauerbowl #bauerpottery #vintagekitchengadgets #vintagekitchenware #chippygreen #vintagekitchenalia #chippygreenpaint #bauerpot #bakernotacook #therustytypewriter

Sail away, sail away, sail away.....🌊 ⛵️Sailing is a favorite summer pastime in my family since I was 10. Mom sent me to sailing camp with my Dad. We got hooked and actually returned for a few summers to teach other girl scouts and their fathers how to sail. There's been a few different boats since then, but it's still a family affair. And clearly inspiration for #mysaturdayvignette! #vintageoilpainting #vintagesailboat #vintagebooks #alabasterlamp #vintagepainting #myvintagestyle #fleamarketstyle #fleamarketfinds #therustytypewriter

Help I've been tagged 👆🏻! Two sweet friends have tagged me this week for exciting new-to-me hashies! Debra @vintagecrushin has asked me to #showusthevintage and Donna @rusticmoderncharm has asked to see my #FrugalFridayFind so I put together this little vignette which illustrates a few of my vintage favorites. The centerpiece here is absolutely the giant waterfront oil painting I snagged a few weeks ago at the Big Baltimore Flea Market. The seller marked it $25 but it had some issues and could use a cleaning. She happily accepted $20 for it and said it had been in storage at her place for years. The standing mirror has become a staple in my living room vignettes. It's the one thing here I paid more for, but even that I got at 50% off! Everything else here was $5 or less, but found over a period of 3 years. I think IG is a great place to showcase that you don't have to spend a lot of money on style. Give good money for staple pieces (or don't if you're lucky!) and the rest will fill in eventually. Thanks for the tags ladies, I can't wait to see everyone else's finds! #ironstone #vintagestyle #fleamarketfinds #vintageironstone #myvintagestyle #fleamarketstyle #vintageoilpainting #vintagebrass #therustytypewriter

When goodwill giveth thou a Johnson Brothers ironstone whatever this is for $5, thou fill-est it with a million flowers. Seriously that's the rule.

Sometimes if you arrive too late at the flea, the vendors are calling it bust and leaving already. Because you know, it might rain, at 8pm. So even though you get there at 1, the pickin is slim. But someone saved a tiny lead doggie just for you. Most of his cold paint is gone, and he stands a little funny, but he reminds you of your pup and for $1 he becomes yours. And all is right with the world. Sharing for #treasuresandtrinketstuesday. Thank you to the hosts for including my sailboat vase from last week in the call photo for today, it was such a sweet surprise! #leaddog #vintagedog #vintageleadtoys #vintageleaddog #vintageleadfigure #vintagebooks #leatherboundbooks #coldpainted #dogfigurine #therustytypewriter

Time for a group photo! Ok everybody smile.... McCoy! My collection of white #mccoypottery has somehow mysteriously (read: I scoured the land for) grown from a few pieces to many over the last year.  It's been a fun, at times frustrating, but rewarding hunt. Just last weekend I had the occasion to purchase the scroll/waves bowl 3 times! I felt like I was Goldilocks and the Bears were taunting me. The first dealer tried to tell me it was a rare unusual piece for McCoy (eh not really) and threw out a high price even for the flea. I waited and was rewarded with a price 1/3 of the first one I'd seen, later that day. The lesson? Set limits (white and green), boundaries ($10 max), and know what you're buying! Happy #magpiemonday ! #mccoy #vintagepottery #tqitb #vintagemccoy #usapottery #therustytypewriter

I enjoyed last week's theme for #Happy😊Hoarder so much that I was thrilled when Dana and the girls chose an open call this week! It means I get to share a little more of my art with all of you! These are my newest additions to the collection, three seascapes acquired on my trip to Ireland. The first is an original acrylic that I bought at St. Stephens green at an outdoor art exhibition. We had seen the art market on Sunday, our first day in Dublin. Unfortunately there was no allotted time to visit it. I was bummed, but lo! When we returned to Dublin on Friday with a free afternoon, the exhibition was set up in the park again! The artist was kind enough to write the location on the back, it is Ballinskelligs if you want to know. They filmed a lot of the upcoming Star Wars film there. The small matted print is the Cliffs of Moher. I can't get over how stunning the cliffs were, or how scary it was to stand near the edge! The print is from an original done in oils and is signed by the artist. The photograph on the right was taken by yours truly with a Kodak Duaflex on Portra 400 120 film at Inch beach, the first place we saw the Atlantic Ocean.  The camera is essentially your 1950's point and shoot. I love how true to life the colors are, and even though everything is a bit out of focus, it really gives a sense of the motion. The wind was blowing the grass, the waves were crashing in, and the clouds were being whisked away.  Now that everything is framed up, I'll need to choose a place in the house to display my little corner of the Irish seaside.
