Sweet Mama and Sweet Vintage Finds!


My sweet mama is here to visit! My dear dad gave her airline tickets for Mother's Day. We have been having the best time together, as we always do.
We went to our favorite antique malls and came home with some lovely things.
I found some wonderful vintage buttons on their original cards and a gorgeous deco Easter card.
I adore this super sweet vintage apron! I can't imagine that any lady would ever wear a gorgeous apron like this to actually cook in.
I assume they must have just worn ones this pretty when they were entertaining?Here are some close ups of the lovely embroidery work.So pretty!!! I love the colors! I also found these darling pink and green potholders and the green enamelware bowl they are in.
Another sweet card. I love calling cards. They are always so pretty! The gorgeous sparkling buttons were too beautiful to pass up.
I'm off now to have some more fun with my dear mama. Have a lovely day girls!!!
Michelle xoxo

LOVE LOVE LOVE that apron! I agree, I wouldn't wear it cooking - not with how sloppy I can be.

Great finds!

That is the prettiest apron I've ever seen! How much fun for you and your Mom to go treasure hunting together.

Just love your pretty finds - I have been searching for the pattern for the white pot holder with the pink rose in the centre. Its so pretty, I wanted to make a couple for my kitchen, not to use of course, just to have hanging.
