My Original 60's Vintage Vehicle

When you truly love vintage it flows over into all areas of your life. My husband and I just purchases this gem of vintage last weekend!

This is a 1968 Monaco 500 in near original condition. It has a 383 magnum motor. It is original to this car and was redone about 2000 miles ago. The paint and interior are original. It runs like a charm. We are so excited and can't wait for the weather to get nicer that we can actually take it for a run!

Here are some pics.
Have a wonderful weekend! I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at part of my vintage collection.

Additions to my growing collection...

Over the past couple of months, I've made a few more additions to my ever-growing collection of peach lustreware items... Whenever I come across a piece, I'm always amazed that no one else snapped it up before me! These pieces are so lovely and timeless.

Peach, Gold and Black Teacup
marked "Winterling, Bavaria, Germany"

Cream Pitcher
marked "Made in Czechloslovakia"

Shallow Bowl
no markings

I haven't been able to find much info online about the cream pitcher or the bowl, since they don't have much for markings. So any information would be welcomed!

Vintage Luggage

I am loving all of the vintage luggage I've been coming across on Etsy lately... In the past couple of months, I've picked up a number of train cases during my thrifting excursions, but am having trouble parting with them because they are just too cute. What I love about train cases is that they are so versatile, you can use them for just about anything...

Here are a couple of the lovely pieces I've come across... any of these would make a great Christmas gift!

My Picks for Vintage Winter Outerwear

With the colder weather coming, here are some great options for a "new" wardrobe. I find it interesting how fashion repeats itself. Take for example the plaids out this year.
Enjoy looking at my picks for this week!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the great weather!

Christmas is coming...

It's hard to believe it's November 7th already. Generally, I start to get into the Christmas mood once the snow hits the ground. This year, I've started a little sooner. Last week while thrifting, I came across a dozen gorgeous mid-century glass indent ornaments and a dozen of multi-colored plain glass ornaments. I was thrilled! I love finding these old ornaments, with their unique patina. Now I know what's going on my tree this year.

If you're getting in the Christmas mood as well, there is an endless supply of beautiful vintage decorations on Etsy. Here are just a few of my favorites I came across this week.

Hope this puts you in the Christmas mood! Have a great weekend...

Vintage Children's Items

This week my search for vintage favorites on Etsy was for children's items. Being a grandmother of a little 7 month old girl and expecting another grandchild inspired me to look and see what was out there for children. I was impressed with these vintage items in wonderful condition!

Fall Finds

Whenever Summer comes to a close, I have a hard time facing reality that Fall is here and Winter won't be far behind. What helps me come to terms with it, is finding warm, cozy items that help me make the transition. Fingerless gloves are definitely one of those items! I got my first pair last winter and now they're essential for me! Here are a couple other items that I am really loving and wishing after for this cooler season.
