Brad and I went thrifting this evening --
I haven't been in probably at least a month! I wasn't looking as deeply as usual -- out of practice, perhaps? And I spotted this little vintage framed print (on the right in top photo). Well, fortunately that spurred me on to look into the pictures a little further, when I uncovered the vintage pastel one on the left, in an old shabby white frame!! Wooo-hooooo!!
Then I went into the clothing section -- I'm always looking for fancy old dresses or lingerie that I can use in projects -- when I spotted this vintage quilted robe/dressing gown!

It is the prettiest pale blue aqua with satiny trim and covered buttons! I don't know if I'll
1) display it
2) wear it
or
3) sell it
But I do know it's a beauty!!
Too bad I didn't take photos of what Brad bought. Perhaps I'll share that another day. I think you will smile! :)

Hi Becca,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my vintage finds...and I think you did really well, too! I would be especially exicted about the pastel print...PERFECT! Great find. And you are adventurous...to go looking in the clothing as well. I need to remember that when I'm there. (I usually forget!) What kind of thrifter am I? :0)

Ohhh, what a pretty robe! You just have to keep it all to yourself and wear it. Great find, Becca.

It really does pay to look a little harder, as you did, at the thrifts. Very sweet prints-- and it makes me wonder if they weren't originally owned by the same person, given their similarity in style. I suspect I've picked up various peoples' collections this way.

Certainly you'll give them a good home! Hope you have a lovely weekend.
