Fun Finds!
Hello, dear ones! I thought I'd pop in and show you my newest finds. I just love this adorable shelf I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby!
I'm using it in my kitchen to display some of my vintage potholder collection and other goodies. Don't you just love Hobby Lobby?! I had never heard of it till I moved to Texas. Now my mama wants them to build one in California. Are you listening Hobby Lobby? Those CA girlies need a Hobby Lobby, too! I found this sweet vintage basket at the Goodwill this weekend. I just adore vintage baskets! I love how this one is shallow and wide so you can really show off the vintage goodies it's holding.Vintage lace, flowers and buttons and cards.... so pretty!!! I can never resist these lovely and romantic pieces of the past!
One more recent find is this wonderful vintage ledger book. Isn't the cover just so beautiful? Thank you so much for coming by for a little visit. Have a beautiful week!!!
Michelle xoxo

Such beautiful finds - I really like the way you've popped your potholders and some vintage crockery together on your new little shelf, it looks absolutely darling :-) We don't have a Hobby Lobby over here in England sadly - it sounds like a place of wonder :-)

I love the basket and the ledger too!

Thanks for stopping by Truly Tattered, Maybe someday you can come and visit the show when you are visiting California? It really was wonderful. But you have good shows in Texas for sure! I have always wanted to come there to shop. YES we do need hobby lobby in CA! I have been to one in KY and loved it!

Michelle, I can't imagine living without a Hobby Lobby. My friends from California can fill a Uhaul every time they visit Texas. It is one of my favorite stores. Your finds are gorgeous as always. You would make a great picker. Blessings, Marta.

Love the pretty wicker basket and all those pretty little things you've filled it with Michelle. You always find the best things at the Goodwill store and at the antique malls. I hear so much about the Hobby Lobby stores here in Blogland. Wish we had one here in Minneapolis as I'd love to see what all they have.
