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!!!

Hi Michelle, You found some great treasures! The apron is amazing. I've never seen one that had been embroidered so lovely.

Wow you really found some lovely things! That apron is so darling. What a treasure! I always love the way you photograph everything... so pretty. I hope you're having a great day.
What a beautiful apron! It would be hard to wear that while cooking or serving, just too pretty! That was sure a great find!
Hello sweet Michelle,
Oh, how nice that you got to spend some fun time with mamma! That was a nice Mother's Day gift from your dad. It's always fun to go antiquing and thrifting, and with a good friend, even more fun! Wow, you found some great treasures. I love that apron!!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that apron! I agree, I wouldn't wear it cooking - not with how sloppy I can be.
Michelle, I'm so looking forward to meet you someday. I wish I get to meet your sweet mama too. It is way too hot already, don't even try without aircon. Congratulations on your blog been featured in RH. Blesssings, Marta.
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.
