vintage bliss

Yesterday, I just needed to get out of the house. So I decided to go on a hunt! A hunt for lovely vintage things. And oh it was good hunt! Here is what I found.A pretty in pink teapot.

This lovely book, with great ideas. Printed in 1964, it's full of 60's fun.

Three beautiful handmade aprons.

I don't know what it is about these type of aprons but I just love them.
This one is my favorite, the detail it is stunning and it is the perfect shade of duck egg blue. I can just image small children tugging at these apron strings.Sheets, to be recycled into quilts.

A rare find of matching embroidered pillow cases.
Three more pillow cases, love the "his" one, wish it had a matching "hers".
The quality of the cotton in these is great, they just don't make them like this anymore.

ah vintage bliss!
