These vintage images are from a Little Golden Book I found at Goodwill. The book is reproduction, but I loved the color of these and thought they would work well in various projects....
I also found a vintage rose bowl & pitcher, and this little covered trinket box with roses on top, with little birds lined up around the sides.
Oh, and the tiara! With pink frou-frou trim; it will go in my "studio" area for inspiration! I've always wanted a tiara! :)






These are painted slates that will hang in the family room -- they are the four seasons, and their style be a good fit in there.

You find the loveliest treasures! Those old Golden Books do have the sweetest pictures, don't they?

It's only right for the pink princess to have a tiara. You must take a picture ;-) The pictures from the book are so sweet. The art in the vintage books was wonderful.

What wonderful graphics from the book. I adore all your finds, but especially the trinket box. I'm starting a collection of those, normally heart shaped ones, but I would have bought that one if I had found it. I see a trinket box of some sort almost every time I go thrifting. You have a wonderful eye for treasure hunting!! I visited several thrift shops yesterday, but came home with very little. At least one piece I truly love- a cupcake no less! LOL

see you there! said...

A tiara! Yes, you needed that. Everything you found is so pretty. I sometimes spot interesting items that I don't bring home because I know I don't have a place for them. You seem to find so many things that fit your decor (going from the photo's you have of you kitchen).
