Random Vintage Goodies

In the past month I have stumbled upon some fun finds!
First up this GORGEOUS scale...

A vintage baby bed
kinda wishing I didn't buy this, I have no room for it...
An old library card file, it needs a paint job, but I couldn't wait to bring it in an load it with craft supplies!
Vintage watering can paired with my NEW rooster...
My beautiful fountain, I am using as a planter.
My vintage lamp shade frame collection plus a bird cage, I can't wait to show you what I am going to do with these!
Number punches ♥ the old wood case.
Enamel basin.

All your finds are great!! Especially love the basin. What's it for? My Mom wants a library card file thingy for her jewelry. Ya, she has TONS!! So IF you ever see another...

Very fun finds! I have a vintage crib that I keep in my guest room with quilts stacked inside. I think it would also look pretty outside on a porch filled with flowers. Looks like you got a lot of treasures!

Shut up!! LOVE it all!! If I lived closer, you'd have to worry about some of that goodness. ;)
I cannot wait to see what you do with the lampshades and birdcage!!

Hi Jen :-)
you know my idea of you making and selling those "Lilly dolls"? That vintage baby crib will be perfect for displaying them in!!!

What are you planting in your 'fountain'?

So Elise inspired you with her lamp shades huh? ;-p

Is everybody currently all healed and healthy at your house?

When I clicked on your actual page, I realized I hadn't commented in awhile. Sorry!!
- Your Mom's peach cobbler gooie stuff is drool prompting!
- the little bundle of laughter and hugs in the wash basin was adorable!
- and I really liked how your coffee filter poppies turned out. I had even forwarded that one to a few friends!

a :-) for your day, friend.

Incredible finds! A little jealous about the library card file. Can't wait to see what you do with the shades. I could use some ideas for a lamp I'm redoing.

I have one of those basins too. I just planted flowers in it. FYI: If you do too you have to be sure to line the bottom with rocks since there are no drain holes ;) Cute stuff! I am envious of that library organizer thing. *swoon*

Amazing finds!!! Love the scale and the card file.

Trying not to be angry and jealous of the awesome finds. Trying. It's not working though. Lucky girl.
